Car Shipping Prague

Prague is the capital and the biggest city of Czech Republic and it is also the 14th largest one in the entire European Union. It is located in the north-west part of the country. It has warm summers and cold winters, as far as climate goes and it also has the lowest unemployment rate in the entire EU. The economy is service and export oriented and Prague was named as the best city in CEE – Central and Eastern Europe for business.

If you need to import the car into the Czech Republic, it would have to meet the standards for road worthiness as per the requirements.  One of the most important ones of them is the emission tests and this could be an issue for USA vehicles because Europe’s emission politics and standards are completely different than the ones of the USA. Fixing these emission standards would be incredibly costly so determining this is of utter importance.

The technical specifications must also be up to the code and this is why the vehicle has to be cleared for inspection. This includes a check of the brakes, tires, engine, blinkers and other significant and important parts of the vehicle ensuring its safe transportation.

The process of adjusting your car to be legal for the Czech Republic can be incredibly time consuming and it may cost a lot, even without paying the standard import duties and taxes. Most of the used and older vehicles are subjected to an additional eco-tax.

Taxes and Duties

Cars which are imported from a country not part of the EU are charged a customs tax of 10% of overall evaluated price of the car along with 20% VAT. You have to pay those taxes prior to the shipment. If you are from the EU you don’t have to pay customs duty and the VAT charges will differ. Nevertheless, no VAT or duties are going to be imposed on you in case you have previously owned that car for over 12 months abroad and used it for more than 6 months before the import. It will be taken into account as your personal possession. You can get the details at the Embassy of Czech Republic.

Essential documentation in USA and Prague

As with shipping internationally, there are plenty of documents needed to prove your ownership and details on the vehicle. You are going to need:

Best Car Shipping Company Prague
  • Bill of sale of the vehicle.
  • Title deed.
  • Company/ Personal declaration about the vehicle.
  • Copy of the work/residence visa.
  • Passport copy.
  • Insurance on the vehicle.

The RO-RO method of shipping is mostly preferred by people who only have to transport their vehicle and no other personal items. Roll-On/Roll-Off is done by driving the car on the platform of the shipping deck and fastening it down so that it doesn’t move throughout the shipping period. This is incredibly convenient and the cheapest way to get your vehicle shipped.

Container shipping is your next choice. Keep in mind that the leftover space of the container could be freely used by the customer and you can easily fill it with other personal belongings in order to get the most value out of the shipping process. You can choose between 20 ft. and 40 ft. container and ensure that the added layer of security will lower the chances of damage.

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!
