Located in the eastern part of Croatia, Slavonski Brod is in the center of Brod Posavina County and is a river port on the Sava River. Slavonski Brod is only 122 miles from Zagreb on the southeast side and it's at a 315 foot elevation.
You can cross the Sava River toward Brod by way of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Import personal car.
Buying a new vehicle in Slavonski Brod can be very expensive so when you move here, you may want to bring your own vehicle with you, even if you don't plan to stay that long. A1 Auto Transport service can assist you in transporting your vehicle to Slavonski Brod with minimal effort on you.
There are several sea ports to choose from when importing to Croatia; Dubrovnik, Split and Bakar are just three of them. It takes less than a week to export out of the United States and into Croatia. It's also affordable to ship a vehicle from the United States to Croatia by way of Roll On/ Roll Off or container shipping. You will need to pay all duties and taxes including an 8% duty for all imported non-EU vehicles. If you want to stay here for more than three months, you will need to register your vehicle with the Transport Authority in Croatia.
In order to ensure that your import is done legally and verified, you will need some documents that can be viewed by the customs department at both the United States and Croatia. These documents must be viewed and approved before your vehicle can arrive at any port. It's best to submit the documents with the United States Customs and Border Protection service, at least 3 days before the send-off to prepare your vehicle for export. You will need to submit the following:
- Title to the Vehicle.
- Bill of Lading.
- Submit the Homologation form for E25 certificate.
- Notary authorized sales contract.
Submission of Homologation Form.
The EU has requirements for all vehicles to have safety features and follow environmental rules. All imports are inspected to verify that these rules are being followed. If not, modifications must be made for the vehicle to continue to stay in the country. This is what Homologation is. You can get a list of these environmental rules and regulations and prepare your vehicle before it is transported so there is no delay or additional expense. If you can't get the modifications done in the United States, import your vehicle to either Germany or Spain and have the modifications done and then import it over to Slavonski Brod. You can verify all these changes and modifications by talking to your A1 Auto Transport Service representative.
Affordable Freight Shipping Options.
You need to get a free quote or an estimate on the total cost but before that, you need to select the method of shipment as the cost can vary based on our preferences. The methods are:
Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping involves your vehicle being harnessed onto the deck of the ship and then driven off once it reaches the port in Croatia. This type of shipping method is less expensive because the only thing you are charged for is the bay that your vehicle sets in during the trip.
Container shipping method is another option for transporting. With this option, you are able to place your vehicle inside a secured container where you can also add any household goods you want to bring with you. You can choose from a 20 foot or 40 foot. You can also share a container with someone to reduce the amount you have to pay.
Your vehicle will need to be prepped before it can go to Croatia. You will need to clean the vehicle inside and out and remove all items from the car otherwise it will be quarantined and delay your delivery. You also need to write down any damages done on your car before it is transported out.
