Ship Car To Padua

🇮🇹 Italy, (IT)

Ship Car To Padua
🇮🇹 Italy, (IT)

Padua is home to an industrial workforce that is the largest of any European country. With more than 1300 separate industries, it is the perfect place for workers to relocate to when searching for employment. Padua also has humid sub-tropical climate that allows warm temperatures year round with little rain outside of the damp winter months. Driving in Padua is normally calm but you will want to drive cautiously when first learning the roadways and how traffic reacts to road signs as many motorists throughout Italy will slow down but not come to a complete stop when approaching intersections. There are not many taxi companies in the city therefore having the use of your own motor vehicle when you need to go somewhere is very advisable.

How to Move Your Car to Padua.

Shipping a car to Padua must be done with a professional auto transport company that has the ability to ship internationally. The company will need you to give them certain documents in order to process your shipping request. The documents include:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Social Security Card.
  • Signed Power of Attorney.
  • Passport.
  • Vehicle Title.

Shipping a car to Padua is not a simple task and it must be done within the rules and regulations set by the Governments of both the United States as well as Italy. Once the car is in Padua you will need to have Italian registration and have Italian license plates to be able to drive while living in Padua.

Ways to Ship a Car to Padua.

  • RORO – Roll On/Roll Off transport is the most preferred way to ship a car internationally from the U.S. to Padua, Italy. Your car will be rolled (driven) onto the ship and then secured in place for transport and then rolled (driven) off at the entry port in Padua. RORO is the least expensive way to ship a car as well as the quickest way by sea.
  • Air Cargo – While some people will choose to ship by air, especially when they have a very expensive motor vehicle and want it to arrive as fast as possible, most will opt for RORO instead due to the pricing. Air transport can be very expensive so you will want to weigh your shipping options carefully. Air transport does provide excellent protection for motor vehicles during shipment.
  • Container – Shipping a car in a shipping container is similar to RORO shipping but it offers extra protection from the elements during transport. Cars are driven into large shipping containers and then loaded onto the ship for transport. While most consumers will use RORO when shipping a car internationally, containers are often preferred when shipping expensive cars or personal items from the United States to Padua.

What to Expect at Customs.

When your car arrives at the entry port to Padua you will have to be physically present for the customs inspection. Customs agents will perform a vehicle inspection to ensure that the car is roadworthy for driving in Italy. They will also check your legal documents to ensure that everything is correct and in order. You will want to check prior to the arrival of your car to make sure that you have all of the required paperwork for customs as missing paperwork can delay or even deny the car from being imported. All imports are also subject to shipping taxes and import duties. New cars must pay an extra Value Added Tax (VAT) when being imported. Another thing to be aware of is the fact that all residents, even those in the city temporarily, must apply for and possess a personal tax code number to pay taxes while living in Italy. Other paperwork that you will need for customs as well as the registration office is:

  • Passport.
  • Residency Certificate.
  • Driver’s License.
  • Motor Vehicle Title.
  • Motor Vehicle Registration.
  • Commercial Invoice.
  • Sales receipt.
  • Original Bill of Lading (Shipping Bill) or Airway Bill.

If the automobile is company or corporation owned a Commerce Certificate must be obtained prior to local registration and you will need to have a statement notarized with the driver’s name included.

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!
