Car Shipping Parma

Parma is a quaint little city in Italy near the Emillia Romagna area and is known worldwide for the exquisite agricultural products, architecture and pristine nature scenery surrounding the entire city. Many people move to Parma to be able to live a quiet and relaxed lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of larger cities throughout Italy. Some move to attend school at the oldest university in the world, the University of Parma. When you need to have your car with you in Parma there are a few things you will need to take care of to have it transported overseas. The first thing you will have to do is hire an auto transport company that is licensed and insured and has the experience necessary to ship cars overseas. You will also need to contact U.S. Customs and find out about the export regulations for shipping automobiles and personal belongings outside of the United States. Another great source of information on shipping motor vehicles overseas is the Federal Maritime Commission.

Transport Overseas with a Professional Touch.

Transporting a motor vehicle overseas requires a professional automobile transporter to handle the automobile as it cannot be driven and must use a mode of transport. Once you contact the transporter you will be asked some general questions about your automobile such as the make, model and year. You may also be asked if you have altered the car in any way. The reason for questions like this are to see if the size of the car has changed from factory standards because each transport carrier can easily load a specific number of motor vehicles. If your car has been altered and the size has increased it may take more space than what would usually be allotted for your make and model car and the agent will need to know whether to factor that in or not. You’ll decide on the type of transport that you will need based on your car as well as your overall transport budget, as well as whether you will need to have door to door shipping service or if you will be driving the car to and from the port on your own. Once the agent has taken all of your information and you have discussed the mode of transport they will be able to give you a complete international price quote. The quote should detail all aspects of the shipment including taxes and fees that must be paid. Your agent will also be able to give you valuable information on import duties as motor vehicle regulations for Parma, Italy that you will need to know ahead of shipping time.

How to Ship a Car Overseas.

When you need to ship a car overseas you will have to choose a way to transport the car by sea or by air. Most people prefer shipping by sea due to the high cost of air shipments. These are the ways that you can ship your car overseas to Parma:

  • RORO- RORO is enclosed sea transport for motor vehicles of all sizes, makes and models. Whether you have a small standard automobile or a large bus or construction equipment, it can be shipped on a RORO ship.RORO is very affordable shipping for cars overseas and is the most common type of automobile transport throughout the world. It’s a simple method of transport where cars are rolled on and rolled off the ship for transport and delivery.
  • Containerized- Containerized shipping is enclosed sea shipping and is usually used for classic, antique, luxury or exotic cars, trucks and motorcycles. When you use containers to ship a car you will have to pay a fee for the container so the rates will be higher than when using RORO. Also, since there are fewer container transport ships than there are RORO ships, the time for delivery will be longer than when using RORO. Containers are very secure though as they are specially designed to keep contents secure during shipment.
  • Air Freight - While shipping by air is the fastest way to have a motor vehicle delivered, it is also the most expensive type of shipping and is usually used only for very expensive motor vehicles or sensitive content that needs to be handled with extreme care.

Motor Vehicle Regulations.

When you relocate to Parma you will find that there are some motor vehicle regulations that you must adhere to be in compliance with the law in Italy. You may import both new and used automobiles but can only import one personal vehicle per person. You will have to pay taxes and import duties on the car but may be able to drop the import duties if you have owned the car for a period of one year or more. You will need to place an application of exemption prior to having the car shipped. You’ll need to have paperwork including your license, tax code number, car registration, car title and your passport. You will also need to apply for residency and must show residency proof when you go to register the car. All cars driving on roads in Italy have to be fully registered and must have Italian tags in order to be street legal. The police can impound your car if it is not properly licensed and registered. You must register the car through the Auto Club of Italy as soon as possible when you import the car to the city. For more information on legal vehicle registration, local laws, import regulations and foreign diplomacy you can contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Italy.

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!
