How to Prepare your Vehicle for Import.
Once your vehicle has been scheduled to leave the ports of the United States, you will need to prepare it for export. If you don't prepare your vehicle, it may be quarantined.
- Clean your vehicle completely on the inside and out. If you don't clean it thoroughly, your vehicle will most likely be quarantined at customs, which will delay you being able to drive your vehicle.
- Remove everything from the vehicle with the exception of the car jack, the floor mats, and an extra set of keys.
- Shipping insurance will need to be taken out for your vehicle if you don't already have any.
- The vehicle will need to be inspected for any scratches or dents and shall be documented by the shipping agent you hire. Any blemishes or problems will be noted on paper. You will need to get a signed copy of this paper for your records.
When you want to ship your vehicle, A1 Auto Transport Service can help you find the right shipping method for you based on your needs.
The first choice is the Roll On/ Roll Off method. This is the most affordable way to ship your vehicle but your vehicle will be exposed to the elements of weather during transport because there is nothing to protect it. The vehicle is strapped down to the deck once it has been placed in an outdoor bay. Your vehicle will be rolled onto the ship for transport and rolled off once it reaches Tallinn.
The second choice is the container shipping method. This method is more expensive but it provides protection for your vehicle and all your personal possessions that you want to send. You can choose from two sizes of containers; the 20 foot container and the 40 foot container. If you have an expensive car or a classic, the container method may be the best method for you.
