Car Shipping Palermo

Palermo is a major shipping port city that imports nearly 5 million tons of cargo each year. Shipping a car to the city is easily done due to the port size as well as to the modes of transportation and roadways throughout the city. You will find that although Palermo is a large tourist attraction, roadways are not as congested in the city as they can be in other areas of Italy. You will want to make sure that you learn the local traffic laws and check driving conditions before you begin driving on your own as many drivers in Palermo often fail to stop at stop signs or traffic lights and tend to drive erratically when compared to the way that driver’s in the United States drive. The mild weather annually makes being able to drive your own personal car in Palermo an enjoyable time whether soaking in the sights or driving to work or school.

Shipping Your Car.

Shipping a car to Palermo can be a simple procedure when you choose the right professional international automobile shipping company. You want to hire a company that has the experience with overseas shipping and has a proven track record for safe and reliable transport. Your agent will answer all questions that you have about international shipping and will be able to schedule your car for convenient door to door pick-up to the exit port in the United States as well as delivery from the port in Palermo. You will need to provide some basic paperwork to begin scheduling your car for shipment including your driver’s license, social security number and a detailed form that will allow permission for the carrier to transport your car internationally. During your conversation with your agent they will clearly explain the contents of the shipping contract, all international shipping fees, and the methods that are available to use for shipping your car.

How to Ship a Car Overseas.

When it comes to shipping a car overseas you will find that you have a couple very simple modes of transport as well as cost effective ways. The following are the typical ways to have your car transported from the United States to Palermo, Italy:

Ship Your Car Palermo

RORO- RORO is the most common way to ship a car internationally from the United States to almost any location around the globe. RORO is quick and convenient shipping that lets a car be driven onto a ship at the port of exit and off the ship at the port of entry in Palermo. This method of transport is used from coast to coast in the United States as well as for shipping wheeled vehicles, construction equipment and much more, worldwide. For the most affordable shipping prices and the fastest delivery times, RORO is the way to go.

Enclosed Container- Enclosed containers make it very convenient when you have personal items to ship at the same time you ship your car. It’s also a very secure way to ship an antique or an exotic motor vehicle overseas as it offers added protection from wind and weather during shipment. Enclosed containers can hold a single car or two cars at one time. If you’re relocating and need to move everything at one time, then using an enclosed container will assist you in making your move quickly.

Your shipping agent will go over the details of forms of transport and will assist you with the knowledge to be able to decide the type of transport you will use for your car.

Car Registration in Palermo.

All motor vehicles driving in Palermo must have Italian registration and license plates, regardless of whether the vehicle owner is an Italian citizen or is a tourist in the country. All residents must also be assigned a tax code number and must pay taxes while residing in Palermo. Those are two of the most important considerations to take when importing a motor vehicle to the city. Most countries require import duties and taxes to be paid when importing a car and Palermo, Italy is no different in that respect as taxes and duty fees must be paid upon entry at the customs clearance checkpoint or paid in advance of import. For those who have owned their motor vehicle for at least one year or longer you can fortunately be exempted if you apply for duty exemption. Basically the registration process for vehicle owners importing their car to Palermo are as follows:

New Cars:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Automobile Registration.
  • Tax Code Number of individual owner.
  • Commercial Invoice.

Used Cars:

  • Driver’s License (Must be valid).
  • Tax Code Number of Car Owner.
  • T2119 Application and NP2B registration.
  • Sales Invoice.
  • Original Car Registration plus a copy of the registration.
  • Residency Certificate.
  • Business automobiles must have a Certificate of Commerce.

The Federal Maritime Convention has great information on international overseas shipping of motor vehicles and is a great source to check with when planning to have your car shipped to Palermo. When you contact the automobile transport company to schedule your motor vehicle for shipment from the United States to Palermo, Italy, the shipping representative will gladly answer any questions you may have about international shipping and can also assist you with information about local laws and documents you will need when relocating to Palermo.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
