Ship Car To Taranto
🇮🇹 Italy, (IT)

Moving to Taranto can seem like a daunting time when you have to completely relocate everything including your automobile. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming at all though when you hire a professional auto transporter to take care of all of your motor vehicle shipping for you. You’ll need to provide some documents to the company including.

  • Driver’s License.
  • Social Security Number.
  • Motor Vehicle Registration.
  • Power of Attorney.

Shipping to Taranto IS easily done because Taranto has a major shipping port for the military as well as commercial endeavors and cargo access is abundant at the port. Taranto is well known for its iron and steel foundries, oil refineries and chemical corporations as well as for the shipping industry, specifically for building military battleships. The city was originated in 706 BC by the Spartans and is called the Spartan City. Because of the large military post there are thousands of people who move to the city each year to become residents either for military positions or public sector employment. There are more than 200,000 permanent residents in the city and more arrive throughout the year as temporary residents.

How to Ship.

When shipping a motor vehicle overseas to European cities you have many options for how to have the car transported.

Ro/Ro - Ro/Ro is short for Roll on Roll off shipping and is the most common way to have a car shipped internationally. Motor vehicles are driven onto the ship in the United States, secured on deck and then driven off the ship when it reaches Taranto. Ro/Ro is safe and reliable as well as the fastest route by sea to ship and the most affordable of all types of international automobile transport. Ro/Ro is used for cars, trucks, SUV’s, vans, buses, farm and construction equipment and most other types of motor vehicles.

Air Freight - Air freight is very convenient when you need to ship a highly expensive or collectors car internationally. Your car is loaded onto a freight plane and then flown directly to the cargo airport where it will be unloaded and then taken through the customs checkpoint. While air freight is the fastest way to ship a motor vehicle, or any other items overseas, it is also the most expensive way to have your property shipped internationally.

Containerized – Containerized transport is very similar to Ro/Ro because motor vehicles are rolled I (driven) into the large shipping container for transport and then rolled (driven) out of the container when it reaches Taranto. There are fewer container ships available when compared to Ro/Ro ships though which means that when shipping a car in a container it will usually take longer to arrive than Ro/Ro ships will. Containerized shipping also costs more than Ro/Ro because you will have to pay a fee for the use of the container. Often, people will share containers to help cut the cost down. If you have a high end car containers are a wise choice because they offer more protection than Ro/Ro transport does. Containers are sealed during shipment preventing the elements from weather, sea water or even flying animals from potentially causing damage during transport.

Once the Car Arrives in Taranto.

Once your car arrives in Taranto you will have to be present for the customs clearance check. You’ll need to give the customs officials your driver’s license, passport, residency certificate, tax code number, vehicle registration and bill of sale or commercial invoice. All imported cars will have taxes and import duties that must be paid. The only exception to this is for new automobiles. New cars are exempt from the duties if the owner has owned the car for one or more years prior to import. Although your car has been registered in the United States, you will be required to register it in Italy as well and must obtain Italian license plates in order to drive the car in Taranto. Cars without proper registration or plates are not legally able to drive in Italy. You may want to learn the different Italian road signs to help adjust to driving in Taranto quicker.

If you have any questions about international motor vehicle shipping your transport agent will be able to assist you with all that you need to know. You can also contact Customs for information on personal items that you will be allowed to export from the United States as well as regulations for motor vehicle shipment.

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!
