If you are moving here on a work visa or plan to stay on for a longer time on a resident permit, chances are high that you won’t be able to use the public transportation for long as it is more expensive. That is why importing your vehicle from USA becomes essential. However, with international auto imports, there are plenty of documentations, proofs and other paperwork that has to be submitted to the Customs department of both the countries much before the vehicle is shipped out. As per the Romanian Customs department the documents that have to be sent for approval a week before the vehicle arrives in the port include:
- Vehicle title deed.
- U.S-Registration certificate.
- Insurance certificate.
- Visa or Work permit.
- Bill of Lading.
- Bill of car purchase.
- Proof of ownership- driving license/passport.

Freight shipping costs.
Our shipping representative can help you on all aspects of the vehicle export-import to Romania. When you are budgeting for the vehicle relocation, it is imperative to know that in Romania, there is 24% and 17% import duty which is the maximum. However, the exact amount that you will need to pay depends upon the shipping, insurance and car’s value. Thus, consider one of these methods of shipping your vehicle- RORO or Enclosed Container shipping.
- RORO: In Roll-on/Roll-Off, you are allowed to ship only your vehicle that has to be emptied of all personal belongings. The car is then driven on the ship using pre-set ramps at the U.S port and secured onboard. When it reaches the Romanian shores, the car is driven off and the Romanian Customs Authority needs to clear it before it is delivered to you. This is the cheapest way to ship your vehicle.
- Enclosed container shipping: If you choose this, it is going to cost you more but it is more secure than RORO. Your vehicle is moved and secured within large 20 feet or 40 feet containers. You are allowed to put in your household or personal items, if you intend moving long term. It is then sealed and only opened at the port in Romania.
It is important that all procedures and regulations are adhered to so that there is no reason for delays. At A1 Auto Transport, we assist you through the complex process, ensuring that it is seamless and hassle-free for you. After the vehicle reaches Ploiesti, the registration process will need to be completed and license plates changed. If you need any assistance, call us today or contact the Embassy of Romania.
