Ship Car To Paris
🇫🇷 France, (FR)

Paris is a beautiful and exciting city to move to in France and can become quite expensive if you have to rent a car to drive where you need to go. Shipping your car to Paris will not only save you on driving expenses but can make the transition to a new country seem much more like home even quicker. Paris is the capital of France and is filled with beautiful architecture and scenery that makes driving oneself vital in order to enjoy all of the landmark beauty of the city. You will need to hire a reputable international auto shipper to take care of all of your shipping needs to assure your car will be delivered to Paris in a timely manner and in pristine condition. The shipping agent will require you to provide the company with documents prior to shipping the car. The documents they will need are:

  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Card
  • Signed Power of Attorney
  • Auto Insurance Certificate
  • Car Title and Registration

Your agent will provide you with all of the necessary paperwork that will need to be filled out as well as information on Customs requirements that you will need to adhere to for exporting your car out of the United States.

Requirements of Customs in Paris

You need to be aware of specific guidelines set forth by Customs in France before you have the vehicle shipped overseas. When importing a vehicle to Paris there are many regulations that need to be followed precisely. Some of those are:

You will first need to make sure that any modifications that need to do to your vehicle have been complete prior to shipping to Paris. Your car must meet all requirements in France in order to clear Customs. You must produce a registration for the vehicle that clearly shows your name and will also need a commercial invoice or the original bill of sale for the vehicle. Vehicles importing from the United States or Canada will require that a VAT (Value Added Tax) at the rate of 19.6% of the vehicle value must be paid prior Customs Clearance in Paris. Duties will be collected by the French Customs and Excise Service at the port of entry to France. If you have a Commercial Invoice the duty fee will be based on the amount listed on the invoice. If there is no Commercial Invoice then the value will be assessed by the agent based on Blue Book value as listed in the United States. You will also need to file for a T1 Declaration in order to use your vehicle on the roadways in Paris. Once your vehicle has cleared Customs, you will have to apply to register the car in Paris and receive a French domestic license plate in order to operate the vehicle while in Paris. This must be procured within 4 months of the vehicle arriving in Paris.

Before Your Vehicle Ships to Paris

Before your vehicle ships to Paris, you will need to work with the shipping agent to ensure that all paperwork and necessary documents are in order for shipping and Customs procedures. You will also need to discuss the cost of shipping as well as the ways that your car can be shipped. The cost will vary based on the Major Shipping Port that your car exports from and the distance to the location in France, the weight of your car and other details that the agent will go over with you. The agent will give you a quote showing the total amount due prior to shipping and once the vehicle arrives in Paris. There is one major port in Paris that receives vehicles that are imported and that port is the Le Havre Cruise Port. You can also ship by air to the Charles De Gaulle Airport that is located in Paris.

You can ship by RoRo Shipping or Container Shipping when shipping by sea. RoRo is the least expensive as well as the quickest way to ship by sea. Your vehicle will be driven onto the cargo ship in the United States, secured into place for the journey, and then driven off the ship when it reaches the port in Paris. Your vehicle must be emptied of all personal items and paperwork for RoRo Shipping. If you need to transport household goods and personal items with your vehicle, then shipping in a container is the best option. The shipping time will take a small amount of time longer than RoRo but is valuable when you need to ship your belongings with your car. You can also use Air Shipping and have your vehicle flown to Paris. Shipping by air cargo is the quickest way to have your car shipped internationally and is exceptionally valuable to those who need to have their personal vehicle in a short amount of time.

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!
