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.

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!
