Ship Car to Piraeus

🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Ship Car to Piraeus
🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Located within the urban belt of Athens, the capital of Greece, Piraeus is only 7 miles/12 km away from Athens municipality. It lies along eastern coastal area of Saronic Gulf which is the largest shipping marine port in Greece, besides being its commercial capital as well. As a central hub, the major ship-owners in the country operate their shipping empires from Piraeus.  Thus, imports are easy to Piraeus, so if you are planning to have your own vehicle shipped here from any port in USA, it won’t be too long to enjoy a drive.

Vehicle import during temporary stay in Piraeus

Those who plan to stay in this city for less than six months can always import the car but only your family members will be able to drive it during this time. Additionally, you will not be able to sell it here or anywhere else in Greece. Before you get the ownership, you need to submit some documents including:

  • Title deed of the vehicle.
  • License tags and insurance from the place of the origin.
  • Ownership proof of the vehicle.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Custom duty receipts.

In case the registration of your vehicle expires during your stay in Piraeus, you can always request for temporary license plates and registration from the Greek transport ministry for as long as you are staying within the six month slot.

Vehicle import for permanent residents in Piraeus

For those who want to move to Greece as the permanent residents, their personal vehicles automatically becomes the part of household goods. Thus, you are allowed as resident permit can bring the car along without any need of paying additional custom duties. You can enjoy such privilege only if you fulfill any of the following conditions:

  • Married to a Greek citizen.
  • Of Greek descent.
  • Have work permit to hold permanent job in Piraeus.
  • Have been staying away from the country for over 2 years.

Required documentation

All vehicles purchased in foreign countries have to pay the associated taxes as well as fees related to registration and license plate issuance. Upon the import of your car, you will need to send description of the vehicle to Greek consulate. They will ask to see the following documents:

  • Property documents and income tax papers.
  • Passport showing Greek lineage, for all your family members relocating to Greece.
  • Work permit/Greek citizenship as applicable.
  • Vehicle registration and insurance.
  • Driving license.

In order to get the vehicle you have to show your AFM card to the authorities as it is quite important for paying taxes or opening accounts in the bank. Before the custom officials hand it over to you, they will check the car for emissions, noise control, along with a general inspection. After this, you can apply for a Piraeus registration. If your vehicle is duty-free, you will not be able to sell it, rent it, or lease it without first paying the taxes.

If you need assistance, A-1 auto transport service can helps you with the customs at US port and at Piraeus, Greece. Additionally, all shipping logistics are taken care of and you need to be at the port to collect your vehicle. From documentation to the delivery process, we are with you. We offer two ways to ship your vehicle namely:

  • RORO method: Here your car is driven on the deck and harnessed to avoid movement during transit and driven off the ship at Piraeus. This is cost effective but you cannot leave any goods in the car.
  • Secure Container: Your car along with household goods is sealed within a 20 feet or 40 feet container. This is a safer and more expensive way of shipping your car but there are many people that choose it. If you need to cut cost without compromising on safety, you can share the container space with other people’s goods.

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!
