Shipping your car.
The weather conditions are definitely to be considered. Make sure to avoid winter months as there is a high chance of delays. However, you should know that the city is close to the port and your car is going to be easily transported to the main city. Even though there are a lot of surrounding ports and the city is close to them, delays are something to be prepared for anyways.
There is quite a lot of paperwork and documents to be prepared when shipping to Albania. With this in mind, some of the important documents are:
- Passport of the owner.
- Registration and title deed.
- Residency permit.
- Ownership proof.
- Documents as well an invoice of purchase.
You might want to refer to the Albania Customs Authority in order to get a hold on the limitations and other important requirements and this is definitely going to help you stay updated with the latest changes. Keep in mind that the banks don’t work on Saturdays and Sundays so fund transfers should be done in advance.
There are two shipping methods for you to choose from and you would need to make your decision based on your requirements and needs. Right off the bat, you can go for the RORO method which would require you or an authorized agent to drive your vehicle on to a shipping deck on its own wheels. The car is then going to get fastened and shipped as is. You have to empty out and steam clean the car if you want to ensure that no delays take place.
Container shipping, on the other hand, is more expensive but you get to choose between a 40ft and 20ft shipping containers in which you can store your vehicle as well as personal belongings that you need to take with you. With this in mind, you get a lot of value for your money if you need to ship additional belongings.
