Ship Car To Thessaloniki
🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Salonica, Thessaloniki, or Salonika is the second largest of Greek cities. It is also the major political, economic, industrial, and commercial hub besides being the prominent transport center for southeastern European countries. The commercial port of Thessaloniki is strategically important for Greece as well as hinterlands of south-eastern Europe. Although the transportation facilities in Greece are good, it helps to have your own car to commute within the city and in the larger metropolis for business and leisure.

Importing your personal vehicle

Those who seek permanent residence in Greece can always bring their car to the country as a part of household possessions. You do not have to pay duty for your vehicle, if you have residency permit when entering Greece. So it is a good idea to apply for the permit from the Greek consulate in USA before coming here. However, you are exempt from paying duty only if you are:

  • Of Greek descent.
  • Married to Greek citizen.
  • Possess residency work permit.

Vehicle owners have to pay fees associated with license plate and registration whether you are importing a used or brand-new car to Thessaloniki. Those who bring duty-free vehicles in Greece will not be able to sell it for at least one-year duration without paying the associated taxes. Additionally, there is a limit on the vehicle as only your immediate family members will be able to drive the car around.

What are the document requirements?

Bringing vehicles to Thessaloniki involves loads of paperwork and because it is a part of your household possessions, you will need to show that you have been staying abroad for over 2 years and are returning to Greece. Some of the documents required by the custom officials include:

  • W-2 forms/IT returns.
  • Rent receipts, property taxes.
  • Past employment proof.
  • Both valid and expired passports of each family member.
  • Work permit/residency permit.
  • Greek citizenship proof.
  • Insurance proof, driver’s license.
  • Vehicle registration documents.
  • Bill of Lading.

Important vehicle inspections

Once the Greek Customs Authority release your car it will have to undergo inspections related to emissions, noise, and a road worthiness checks.  However, these processes are made easy when you hire international car shipping service like A1 Auto Transport Company that has over 20 years of experience helping ship vehicles to cities globally. We take care of the customs and the related procedures and can arrange for checks before the vehicle finally arrives.

Now, you can apply for a Greek license plate and registration. However, it is important to note that the cars or other vehicles you bring to Thessaloniki are duty-free only if it is for personal use. You cannot sell, transfer, lease, rent, or upon it in any way.

Shipping methods to consider

Most of the vehicles are shipped, when you import cars from US ports to Greece, these are the two methods used:

  • Roll-On/Roll-Off: You will need to remove air conditioning gas, only keep the jack, spare tire and floor mats when you ship as RORO method. The car will drive up the ramp at the US port and when it reaches Thessaloniki, it will be driven down. This is the cost-effective method.
  • Container Shipping: If you are looking for higher safety and secure shipping option, you can ship in 20 feet or 40 feet containers that are locked after your car and other household goods are secured in it. This is more expensive way to ship your car.

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!
