Preparing the Car.
Once you’ve decided to get your car delivered to Estonia it is better if you duly prepare it for the process in order to ensure a hassle-free process. The steps include:
- Clean the vehicle inside and out in order to avoid quarantine.
- Remove all of your belongings.
- Get valid insurance.
- Inspect the car for damage and obtain a signed copy of the record that outlines them.
Typically, you can choose between two shipping methods with the A1 Auto Transport service. They include:
- RORO: The vehicle is going to be driven onto the freight ship and driven off to Estonia. This is a fast and cost effective way but you won’t have the luxury of shipping additional belongings. You can leave only the floor mats, spare keys and tire and your car jack.
- Container Shipping: This is more convenient if you want to get other items shipped with the car. You can choose between a 20ft and 40ft private container and you could also share it with another person to split the costs.
