Car Shipping Plzeň 

Ship Your Car To Or From Plzeň, Czech Republic

Located in the western part of Bohemia in Czech Republic, Plzeň is about 56 miles from the capital city of Prague. Plzeň is the fourth most popular city in the Czech Republic. Since the 90s, Plzeň has continued to grow in popularity, increasing the academic, cultural, and business part of the life.

If you want to come to Plzeň to visit, work, or live, you may want to request that your vehicle join you. In order to bring your vehicle over with you to Czech Republic, an important detail to remember is that Czech Republic is part of the European Union. You will need to take precautions and follow procedures when transporting the vehicles from the United States to Plzeň. There are some standards that must be followed when shipping a vehicle to this country, including inspections of the vehicle.

Your vehicle will need to meet all the basic regulations in order to make it past the Customs Administration of Czech Republic. Your vehicle will need to be able to pass through customs and through any other tests that is required in order to make your vehicle road worthy.

Many vehicles from the United States do not meet the emissions laws and regulations that EU has in place. Your vehicle will need to pass the emissions test before proceeding. If it does not pass inspection, you will need to have it modified first before you can transport it. This could end up costing you a lot more money than what you figured on a transport costing.  If you are shipping a normal sized vehicle, it could cost you between $1500 and $3,300. You will need to include the customs and value added tax, or VAT which is around 30%. This amount is based on the value of the vehicle.

Another inspection for homologation will determine if your vehicles brakes, bumpers, tires, blinkers, engine, and other parts of your vehicle are in good working order before it will be allowed inside the country. While it may take a while for the process of making your vehicle legal in Czech Republic, in the end, you will be able to drive your vehicle wherever you want to go while you are in Czech Republic.

Auto Transport Plzen

Auto Import Duties and Taxes

A vehicle coming out of the United States and into the European Union will need to pay taxes and customs duty which is determined by the value of your vehicle, 10%. You will also be responsible for a value added tax that totals 19%. These charges will be charged to you prior to the vehicle being released to you.

If you have owned the vehicle for a minimum of one year in the United States and have been the primary operator of that vehicle for at least six months, you can import the vehicle without paying any duties or VAT. This is in effect because the vehicle is part of personal possessions and that is why it becomes exempt.

Ship Your Car Plzen

You have the option of using RORO or container shipping to ship your vehicle. When you work with an expert international shipping service like A-1 Auto Transport, they consider your budget before helping you decide the best method. RORO is cheapest as your vehicle is driven on in U.S and taken off the ship when it reaches the Czech port. But you can only send an empty car using this method. In case, you have personal belongings to ship along with the car or have an expensive vehicle, then container shipping works best.

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!
