Ship Car To Palermo

🇮🇹 Italy, (IT)

Ship Car To Palermo
🇮🇹 Italy, (IT)

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:

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.

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!
