Ship Car To Varna

Ship Car To Varna
🇧🇬 Bulgaria, (BG)

Car Shipping Varna

Varna is known as the largest seaside resort in the country of Bulgaria. It is also the third biggest city. It is also a major destination for tourists and as well as a starting point for the resorts on the Northern Black Sea Coast.

Shipping details and methods to consider

Bulgaria is currently a part of the EU which means that the same rules as other EU countries apply when shipping cars to Bulgaria. You are going to need to clear the vehicle through the customs, pursuant to the relevant regulations. You would have to pay the VAT, take out the insurance and get a verification of origin. You are also going to have to get the vehicle inspected, tested for roadworthiness and registered. Even though most of the regulations that you would need to follow are the same, there are some specifications for Bulgaria alone.

The customs of the Varna require that vehicles which are imported to be declared on temporary import basis. You are also going to have to pay a guarantee for the car in order to get clearance from the Customs. The amount of the guarantee depends on the year, make and model as well as the bhp and the kW of the engine.  If the car stays within the Bulgaria for more than a year you are going to have to renew the temporary import as it is for one year. To know the details of eligibility, import regulations and other information, contact the Embassy of Bulgaria.

Required documents

Like other EU countries, Bulgaria also demands some particular documentation prior to allowing you to import a vehicle. The documents are as follows:

  • Registration and ownership proof.
  • Valid visa.
  • Bulgarian national driver’s license.
  • International policy of insurance.

Duties and taxes

The amount of the taxes and the duties on imported vehicles depends on the specifications, the age and the country of origin. If the car is imported from a country part of the EU it’s not going to have import taxes. However, if it’s not, then the import duties can get up to 17% or more of the fair market value of your car.

The standard VAT is 20% and it is calculated by determining the value of the goods. Insurance costs and the import duty can also be due. Additionally, excise taxes may also be calculated if so is determined by the authorities of Bulgaria after inspection. The diplomats are allowed to import one vehicle free of taxes and duties.

Requirements for shipping

Make sure to confirm that your shipping agent is properly familiar with the requirements for international shipping. The documentation has to be submitted to the Customs and Border Protection Agency at least 72 hours before the exportation of the vehicle. Generally, it is advisable for you to allow more time before that in case of glitches.

Make sure that your vehicle is eligible for international shipping. If there is a lien against the car you must make sure to get the written approval of the lienholder to ship it outside of the USA. The laws that govern eligibility are compiled within the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. You are going to need to present copies of driver’s license, passport, and proof of ownership for the Bulgarian Customs. For further information regarding the taxes you can visit the Bulgarian Customs for vehicle specifications.

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!
