Each year more than 10,000 people relocate to Trieste from all parts of the world including Germany, Serbia, Hungary and the United States. Driving in the small seaboard city is generally fairly tranquil as long as you know how traffic flows and what the Italian road signs mean. Shipping a car to Trieste is advisable due to the fact that cab fares are usually priced quite high in the city and even with the cost of shipping money will be saved by having your own vehicle to drive daily. In order to have your car shipped to Trieste you will need to hire an international automobile shipping company to take care of the car while it is being transported. While many European countries have certain times of the year when shipping a car may be easier because of weather conditions or tourist seasons, Trieste boasts a mild and very warm climate annually and has around 7 inches of rain each month, thus anytime of the year is excellent for automobile relocation to the city.

Modes of Transport to Trieste.
When shipping a car to Trieste you can choose from several different ways to transport the car. RORO is the most commonly used way to ship a car to all countries around the world as it is the fastest way by sea as well as the least expensive option of all modes of transport. RORO is short for roll on/roll off shipping and it simply means that the motor vehicle is driven or rolled onto the ship as it prepares to leave the port and is rolled or driven off the ship when it reaches the destination port. Motor vehicles of all makes, models and sizes are shipped safely with RORO daily. Air Freight is also an option and it is the fastest way to have a car delivered to Trieste. Cars are loaded onto freight planes and then flown directly to the nearest cargo airport located near Trieste for delivery. Air freight is usually only utilized for very expensive exotic and luxury model automobiles as it is a very expensive way to transport a car. Container shipping is also available and works in the same basic way that RORO works as cars are driven into the container for transport and then driven out of the container when it reaches Trieste. Container shipping will cost more than RORO but when you need affordable shipping that will provide extra protection during sea transport containers are excellent to use. It is also less expensive than air freight and is exceptional for high end luxury vehicles. You can also use door to door shipping when having your car shipped internationally. Your agent will schedule your car for convenient door to door pick-up and delivery in the United States as well as when the car reaches Trieste.
Customs and Motor Vehicle Registration.
