Car Shipping Prato

Prato is one of the largest cities in Italy with a population of more than 190,000 permanent residents. Many residents immigrate to the city each year from countries like China and the United States. With a large textile industry in the city, unemployment is low and people flock to the city for work. Once you’re living in the city you’re most likely going to need your own motor vehicle to easily navigate your daily outings to and from work or shopping. Rental cars are expensive and scarce in Prato and taxis will be very costly over time. Shipping your car from the United States to Prato can be accomplished easily with the services of a professional auto transport company. When you contact the shipper your customer service representative will be able to answer any questions you have and will be able to make suggestions and give you all of the information you will need to be able to ship your car overseas quickly, safely and affordably.

Professional Auto Transport Services.

Many people often wonder what a professional auto transport company can do to help when in need of shipping a car overseas. Sure, they can provide the transport carrier that your car will be loaded onto for the journey, but what else do they do when it comes to shipping the car? Your representative can offer great suggestions on the type of transport you should use for your car as well as valuable information that you will need for customs, motor vehicle regulations and much more for the city that you’re shipping the car to. The services provided by A1 Auto Transport exemplify the professionalism of the auto transport industry and working closely with your representative will help ensure that your car is shipped fast and affordably. If you need to have your car picked up and delivered to the exit port that will be taken care of at the time the delivery schedule is being made. Door to door pick-up and delivery makes shipping very convenient for you.

Types of Transport.

While you won’t be able to drive your car or travel overseas alongside of it, you will be able to choose from the best methods of transport in the automobile shipping industry for safe and dependable automobile shipping. The main types of automobile shipping are open or enclosed and these are the ways that you can choose from when shipping internationally:

  • Roll On/Roll Off - Also called RORO for short, this method is a type of open automobile transport and hundreds of motor vehicles can be on one RORO ship at a time. The more cars scheduled for transport, the lower the price to the consumer. Cars are driven (rolled) on the ship for exit and then secured in place for travel, and then they are rolled (driven) off when the ship reaches the entry port in Prato, Italy. Most people use RORO when having a car shipped internationally as it is the fastest and least expensive form of transport by sea.
  • Containerized – Containerized is a type of enclosed automobile shipping and each container can hold between one and two standard sized motor vehicles. As with RORO, cars are driven into the container for transport on a cargo ship and then driven out of the container when it reaches the port in Prato. While container shipping will cost more than RORO because you have to pay for the container usage, it is the best type of transport if you have a high end vehicle and need to make sure it is fully protected during travel by sea.
  • Air Freight - Air freight is the fastest way to ship a motor vehicle internationally. Automobiles can easily be loaded onto a freight plane and flown directly to the cargo airport for delivery very fast. Air transport is also the most expensive way to ship a car but is the best way for those who have extremely expensive automobiles or those who may need their car in the least possible time.

Prato Motor Vehicle Rules.

When you import your car to Prato you must abide by the motor vehicle rules through customs for importation as well as through the Italian Government for vehicle registration laws. All cars, by law, must be registered in Italy and are required to have Italian license tags in order to be driven on the roadways. Failure to register your car can result in the authorities taking the car from your possession and possession and possibly exporting it back to the United States. You can check this website for detailed information on paperwork that is required when importing your car and registering it in Prato. All citizens of Prato are also required to pay taxes to the Italian Government. Temporary residents are not exempt from taxes and all residents must apply for and acquire a tax code number to use when paying taxes.

For further information your auto transport customer service representative will be able to direct you to all paperwork, tax and duty amounts and will answer all questions that you have concerning your automobile transport to Prato.

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!
