In order to get your car in the country you need to make sure that the car is road ready. One of the standards that you’d have to consider is the emission one. This is usually a problem for a lot of vehicles coming from the US and that’s why they have to get modified in order to pass the emission testing.

Additionally, your car needs to be inspected for its technical parameters and ensure that it abides by the code. The overall process of legalizing your vehicle for the roads of the Czech Republic could take a long time – at least a month. And, it could also cost you about 15.000 CZK excluding the import taxes. That’s why a lot of people prefer to sell their vehicles and to buy a new one when they arrive. For older vehicles you would also have to pay an eco-tax of about 10.000 CZK.

Duties and Taxes

If you are wondering how much vehicle transportation from the US is going to cost you, you’ve come to the right place. For a regular sized vehicle you are looking at between $1,600 and $3,300. Customs and VAT are approximately about 30% based on the actual assessed value of your car. This is an important cost that you’d have to pay additionally so take it into account.

You can expect to pay a customs duty of 10% as well as 19% of VAT off the assessed value of the vehicle. Both of these need to be paid in advance so that you can import the vehicle in the country. There are no taxes if you are importing from within the EU itself. You will only have to pay the VAT.

Of course, there is quite a lot of documentation that you need to handle in order to make sure that everything is carried out properly. Some of the documents include:

  • Copy of work/resident visa
  • Copy of your pass port
  • Copy of your work permit
  • Copy of your housing contract
  • Title certificate
  • Proof of car insurance
  • Personal or company declarations

Additionally, you will need to decide on the method of shipping your car to Ostrava. If you have a tight budget, then Roll-on/Roll-Off might work as you only pay for parking space occupied by your vehicle. However, when sending your vehicle by this method, you are not allowed to put any personal possessions in it. Thus only an empty vehicle is shipped.

Thus, if you have an expensive vehicle or need to move your personal belongings along with your vehicle, choose container shipping. You can hire a 20 feet or 40 feet container depending upon the things you need to move. It is sealed and then dispatched in the fright ships. This is safer and more secure way of shipping your vehicle.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
