Ship Car To Tirana
🇦🇱 Albania, (AL)

Car Shipping Tirana

Tirana is largest city and the capital of Albania since 1920. It is the economic, political and cultural hub of the country. Well connected by railroad, air and just 35 km from the nearest port city of Durrës, the city boasts of well-organized road transportation. If you intend staying or working in the city, shipping a personal vehicle to Tirana might be a convenient option.

The situation in the country has improved over the years after withdrawing from communism and the city is on a rapid development spree.  Just like shipping a vehicle to any country, there are specific requirements, paperwork to fill in that need to be met for transporting your vehicle to Tirana in Albania. That is one of the major reasons that you need to contact a reputed and experienced auto shipping company such as A-1 Auto Transport service. Additionally, there are custom fees to be paid before you can get the delivery of the vehicle. As regulations keep changing with time, to know more about the latest regulations, contact the Albanian Embassy.

Shipping a vehicle

The weather conditions need to be considered before the vehicle is scheduled to be shipped. It is best to avoid the winter months as it is cloudy and wet most of the time. Thus, avoid moving your vehicle during this time as shipping delays might happen. However, as Tirana is close to the port, your car will be shipped with ease and driven down to the main city. Though with the proximity to the coast, vehicle imports are possible all year round but delays happen during the rough weather.

Procedure of car shipping

With plenty of paperwork, it is important that the right documents are filed and duty paid in advance with the required transport authority, including the Title 19 Customs Duties. Other important documents include:

  • Registration/title deed
  • Owners Passport
  • Residence permit
  • Proof of ownership
  • Documents and invoice of vehicle purchase

You may need to refer to the Albania customs regulations to understand the limitations and requirements. It will help you stay updated when you are shipping your car to Tirana. You need to consider that as all banks are closed on Saturday and Sunday, transfer the required funds before that.

Shipping methods

If you plan on using the Roll-on/Roll-Off method of shipment, you might need to clean out your car, all external parts and air conditioning gases need to be removed and as per regulations, you can only leave the jack, floor mats and the spare tire. Another important aspect is that you need to steam clean the vehicle before it is shipped so that it is not quarantined on arrival and cleaned in Albania, before it is delivered by the shipping company. This will expedite the process.

As mentioned, Roll on/Roll off or RORO as popularly termed, is the cheapest method of shipping your vehicle. It is driven on board and fastened or harnessed so that it doesn’t move and then rolled off the ship at the port of destination. The other method is the enclosed container shipping.  Here the car is enclosed in a 20ft or 40 feet container along with other household goods and the car is shipped with all accessories. This is more expensive as the vehicle is completely locked and secured within an enclosed container. Whether the car is sent by RORO or container shipping, it will reach the port at Durrës, and then driven to Tirana.

However, consider the cost of driving the vehicle to the nearest U.S. port before it is shipped to Tirana in Albania. When the car reaches the Albanian port, the owners will need to pay the custom duties, complete the safety procedures, and get the vehicle tested for emissions and other necessary checks. Only then you can get it registered in Albania. To know more about the process and regulations, consult the  U.S. Embassy in Albania.

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!
