Shipping the car to Turkey.
Before you ship your vehicle to the city in Turkey, you need to take a handle on the road rules and signs that have to be abided by while driving in the country. The roads in the city are generally in great driving condition even though some of the secondary roads may be dirt or gravel and you might want to be particularly careful when driving on them. You are going to have a residency permit which is issued in Washington DC from the Embassy of Turkey. You would also have to file for a residency permit if you are a tourist staying for less than 90 days. Your passport also has to be valid and the fees range from $105 to $135 based on the age of the person. It is advisable to register with the STEP – Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.

This particular company is going to assist you with everything in relation to the export of your vehicle from the USA. A1 Auto transport is a reliable company with over 20 years of experience of shipping overseas. We are going to be there with you throughout every step of the way and we are going to spare you all the hassle which is otherwise unavoidable when it comes to international shipping.
- Driver’s License.
- Social Security Number.
- Power of Attorney.
- Clear car title deed.
- Bill of Lading.
If you wonder why you need a signed power of attorney – it is for us to be able to take care of everything on your behalf without you having to worry about any procedure. Some of the shipping procedures require you to be present personally and if you haven’t authorized us with a signed power of attorney we wouldn’t be able to take care of these without you being there.
Transportation of Cars Internationally.
You will be given the chance to choose between container shipping and Ro-Ro. The container shipping method is particularly useful if you have a lot of personal belongings to be shipped with your car. You can choose between a 20ft and 40ft container based on your requirements. The process is a bit slower but that’s because it goes through more checkups. It’s also more expensive than the Ro-Ro.
Ro-Ro, on the other hand, is a great way to ship your car if you have no belongings to get with you too. You can rely on it to be the fastest water-based transportation method and also the cheapest one. However, you need to make sure that your vehicle is stripped down of any personal belongings because they are not allowed.
At the Customs in Üsküdar.
There are specific regulations that you would have to go through if you want to get clearance from the Turkish Customs as well. It is not easy to become a permanent resident unless you are a returning citizen. If you have to import permanently, you will need to show proof of work, school or retired and will not be returning back to USA. With this in mind, you need to know that temporary imports are only valid for no more than 180 days and you need to provide the following documentation for a permanent import:
- Valid Passport.
- Work or School Visa and Residency Permit.
- International Driver’s License.
Your shipping agent will also help you with the issuing of a Blue Card which is also required. To get further information about the procedure and regulations, contact the Turkish Consulate in U.S.
