Ship Car To Riga
🇱🇻 Latvia, (LV)

The largest city and capital of Latvia, Riga is the most populated among all the cities. It lies on the Gulf of Riga and is at the banks of the River Daugava. A member of the Eurocities, Union of Capitals of the European Union and the Union of Baltic cities, it has grown by leaps and bounds after the downfall of the Soviet Union.

If you are planning to move to Riga or have already moved there, to bypass the language and currency issues, you can import your vehicle from USA. However, before the vehicle can be shipped, a lot of paperwork and regulations need to be completed. Although the roads aren’t good but most of the main highways are well-paved while the secondary roads need to be paved. As a popular city to reside in, Riga has a lot of expatriates. To facilitate import of vehicles there are some specific rules to adhere to.

Vehicle regulations in Latvia

There are some regulations that Latvia has which need to be followed. It is important that you know about it because the complete process is complex and it is important that the vehicle you import meets the requirements:

  • Only 1 year import status given on a temporary basis.
  • Vehicles that are over seven years old are taxed higher VAT of 18%
  • New or vehicles less than 7 years are taxed 10% import duty and 10% VAT.
  • Name of the vehicle owner has to be on the title deed.

The import duty is levied on the basis of the value of the car. Apart from custom and excise charges, there are additional charges of VAT and other levies based on the cost of the vehicle. If the vehicle has depreciated, the taxes will be reduced automatically.

Important documents to submit

To ship a vehicle to Riga, you need to ship your vehicle with all the required documentation to ensure that it is a legal procedure. You need to ensure that you submit the documents which include:

  • Bill of sale of vehicle.
  • Latvian import license.
  • S Insurance.
  • International driving license.
  • Passport and photo ID of owner.
  • Clear title deed of the vehicle.
  • Registration papers.

Before your vehicle is shipped to Riga in Latvia, it is best to know about the rules and regulations, filing of documents with U.S Customs and the State Revenue Service (SRS).

Shipping costs

The cost of shipping your car or any other vehicle will depend on a lot of factors, including the method of shipment you select. If you want additional services of ‘door to port’ or port to port services, they will increase the total cost. A1 Auto Transport service will go over the costs which will include the size and weight of your vehicle. There are some limitations if you are shipping by Roll-on/Roll-Off, but we will walk you through the entire process.

Freight shipping methods to Latvia

Air shipping is quick but extremely expensive and thus, most people use out this option. Generally, container shipping and Roll-on/Roll-Off is the best ways to get the vehicle delivered in Riga. In RORO, the vehicle is driven on the off the ship but it has to be completely clean, empty and only then it can be shipped using this method. Whether as in Container shipping method, you can pack your personal items and other household goods alongside the vehicle within the 20 feet or 40 feet container that you hire.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport means stress-free. I shipped my Toyota Prius from Chicago to Mississippi, and they were very flexible in terms of pick-up and delivery time. I'll surely put them on my favourites list. The car arrived safely and in perfect condition. Other than a bit of dust caught on the road, there’s nothing to report. It was the best service and a very pleasant company!”

“I had to get my daughter’s new Honda to South Dakota, so she wouldn’t have to drive it herself. I trust her driving skills, but not out of the city. I’m glad Joe was available to help. He promised to handle it with the utmost care and at a good price. The very next day, a truck arrived to take it. I could finally rest easy. By the time my daughter knew what was going on, it was already on its way. Thanks Joe! A1 Auto Transport is a truly reliable company. I’ll call again if I ever need to.”

“For the most part, I felt they are responsive to their clients. I read reviews and was not disappointed about the quality of service they provided. I did not get to check on every single detail of my vehicle but I think they are impressive when it comes to timeliness. I am a working student and just received the Volvo sedan as a surprise gift from my parents. They got it to Montana 2 days earlier than expected. Even if this was just an exception to the rule, it’s still pretty impressive. If they always deliver this way, they must be among the best in the industry.”

“Truly, the best transport company! I was supposed to use another originally. However, I read some terrible reviews on it, so I gave A1 Auto Transport a call and arranged for a short notice transport. They thankfully obliged me, a big help considering all the preparations I had to make for my move to Colorado. The driver did a great job. He was communicative, professional, and very competent. He took my baby on Sunday and brought it at my new home by Thursday evening. Amazing Service! Thank you both! I’m not one to write reviews, I just really feel you deserve it.”

“We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from Washington 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!”
