Ship Car To Poti

Ship Car To Poti
🇯🇵 Japan, (JP)

Car Shipping Poti 

The port city of Poti is conveniently located in Georgia near the eastern coast of the Black Sea. It was built close to the very site of the ancient Greek colony of Phasis.

Poti gets its name from this ancient colony and has since then evolved into the main industrial center since the turn of the 20th century. It is the main location of the Georgian Naval base.

When you come to Poti, you will need your vehicle to get around. Importing your own vehicle is cheaper than buying a new one and you don't have to worry about public transportation which can not only be expensive and time consuming but can also be a problem if you don't speak the language well. There are no Georgian car manufacturers, so importing a vehicle into the country is simple, especially with the help of A1 Auto Transport service. While you are there, if you need vehicle parts, you may find that both Japanese and American made vehicle parts are easily accessible.

Importing your Vehicle Legally to Georgia.

In order to legally import a vehicle, you need to provide the right documentation that will aid in processing your request legally. These documents will need to be sent to the Georgia Revenue Service and include:

  • Car insurance.
  • Import permit.
  • Work permit.
  • Passport.
  • Registration of the vehicle.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • Purchase invoice with all the details of your vehicle.
  • Clear title.

The imported vehicles have to pay 12% customs duty and 18% as VAT. These are calculated by the vehicle's value. If you plan to be in this country for about one year, you will be able to choose the option of temporary import for up to twelve months with a possible twelve month extension. It's important to note that temporary imports will not include any tax payment or import duty and will need to be guaranteed by a bank in order to approve. The amount of 18% VAT will be the going rate for temp approval. Vehicles that are imported permanently will need to pay all taxes and duty before the vehicle is released.

Secure Measures Taken into Consideration in Georgia.

Due to heighten security, any vehicle carrying cargo will be required to report this to the customs before the vehicle arrives in Poti. There is a specific procedure which includes Cargo Notification that has to be filed at least 24-48 hours before the vehicle arrives. If no notification is given, then delays may be possible. At A1 Auto Transport, we know the requirements and will assist you at every step of the way.

A1 Auto Transport service will provide you with a quote which includes the cost of shipping your vehicle from USA. You will have two options of shipping to choose from; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. With the Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping, your vehicle is driven onto the deck of the ship and then fastened down for safety inside a bay. Once the ship reaches to port in Georgia, the vehicle is started up and driven off. Roll On/ Roll Off is the most affordable way to ship your vehicle. If you have an expensive vehicle or you have personal items that you want to ship with your vehicle, then container shipping may be the best option for you. You may pay more with container shipping however you get to choose from a 20 or 40 foot container and it is safer to import this way instead of the RORO method. You can import your vehicle and your personal items at the same 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!
