Car Shipping Rome

Moving to Rome, Italy is a move that many desire to make. Once you arrive in the busy industrial capital of Italy you may realize that having your own personal vehicle to get around will help not only financially but with saving time when you need to get somewhere. Rome is a city that showcases perfect driving weather year-round and manipulating the busy city streets is easily done once you begin to drive on your own. The first thing that you’ll need to do when planning to ship your car to Rome will be to hire a professional automobile transport company that can ship internationally. A professional auto transporter will be able to answer all of your automobile shipping questions as well as give you information you will need on customs regulations and fees and the total cost of shipping internationally to Rome.

Documentation and Vehicle Preparation.

When shipping a car overseas you will need to schedule the transport ahead of time, preferably 2-4 weeks in advance if possible so the transporter can set up the time available to pick your car up. You’ll need to give them a copy of your driver’s license and social security number to verify your identity. They will also get the details of your car including the make, model and year as well as the mode of transport you will be using and the port the car will be shipped from in order to give you an accurate shipping price quote. Your quote will also vary depending on the amount of import taxes that will be due when the car arrives at the entry port and whether you will need the car delivered when it arrives.

To prepare your vehicle for transport it is usually advisable to check the amount of insurance coverage included with shipping and to make sure a complete inspection is done just before the car is loaded onto the carrier. You will also want to remove all personal items from the interior of the car and check the fluid and battery levels to make sure they are at the proper levels.

Modes of International Transport.

Your shipping agent will work with you to decide the right mode of international transport for your car. Primarily you will choose from RORO or Enclosed shipping. Shipping with RORO is the preferred way for millions each year to ship a car internationally. Your car is driven onto the shipping carrier in the United States and then driven off when it reaches Rome. You’ll be able to pick your car up and drive it through customs and then to your new location or have it delivered once customs has cleared the vehicle. RORO is the least expensive way to transport a car overseas. Enclosed shipping is convenient if you have a classic automobile or if you may need to ship personal belongings as well as your car. Your car (and personal belongings) are loaded inside of a shipping container and then transported. Enclosed shipping is a little more expensive than RORO but it will allow more protection during transport as well as let you relocate other belongings to Rome.

Regulations for Customs Clearance.

Rome, and all of Italy has very few regulations when it comes to customs clearance. The primary thing that you will need to do is register your automobile and obtain an Italian license plate when importing the car. To do this you will need to provide the following paperwork to the Provincial Motorization Office and have it registered at the Public Register of Motor Vehicles:

New Automobiles:
  • Vehicle Title (Foreign or Domestic) showing signature of owner.
  • Sales Receipt or Commercial Invoice showing ownership if new owners name is not yet on the car title.
  • Photo Identification or Driver’s License with photo to show identity.
  • Residence certificate of applicant.
  • Social Security Number or Tax Code Number.
  • Copy of Vehicle Registration.
Used Automobiles:
  • Copy of Photo Identification. If the photo ID is not written in Italian it must be accompanied by an Italian translation document as well that shows it is a certified identification document.
  • Residence Certificate of the vehicle owner or documentation showing that residency has been applied for.
  • NP2B registration form obtained from the office of Civil Motorization along with the owners tax code number.
  • Sales Invoice that has been notarized with the owner’s signature and shows the revenue stamp.
  • Foreign certificate of registration as well as a copy of registration.
  • TT 2119 application that has been signed by the owner.
  • If the automobile is owned by a company it will need a Certificate of Commerce including revenue stamps naming the legal automobile driver’s name.

For further in depth information on regulations for automobile registry in Rome you can contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Italy for detailed information. You will also be required to pay import duties and register to pay taxes in Italy. All residents in Rome must pay taxes whether they have imported a motor vehicle or not. For new car owners you will be required to also pay a Value Added Tax (VAT) of 22%. If you have owned the motor vehicle for at least one year prior to relocation you can be exempted from paying the import duties. Proof of ownership is required. You will also need to immediately register the car and have Italian license plates. Cars found without Italian plates are subject for repossession by the police in Rome and throughout Italy.

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!
