Ship Car To Volos

🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Ship Car To Volos
🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Volos is a port city in Thessaly which is located on the mainland of Greece, north of the capital Athens and about 326 kilometers away. This is the newest port city and it has the largest portion of modern buildings with a strong economy based on services, tourism and manufacturing.

If you plan on making a longer visit to the country, you may want to export your car to Greece from USA for a maximum period of about six months. There are no taxes applicable if the import is for this period. You won’t be allowed to sell the car or to let anyone else outside your family to drive it. Once that the vehicle enters Greece, you are going to be required to show proof of insurance as well as updated registration and license plate tags from the home country. If the tags expire you are going to need to visit the customs office to get temporary replacements.

Relocating to Greece.

People that are going to move to Volos in Greece permanently may consider importing a car, which is going to be considered a part of the household goods. This will not attract any tax provided you have residency permit prior to entering the country. You may apply for this while in USA. This is available for people of Greek descent and anyone who is married to a Greek citizen as well as for people who have work permit for a permanent job in the country. You must maintain the permanent residence abroad, for at least two years if you are to qualify for those conditions.

In order to be eligible for this procedure you must send a description of the car to the Greek consulate in USA. You must have purchased the vehicle 6 months prior to importing it. You will have to pay VAT even if exempted from import duties. You are also going to have to pay registration fees as well as those for the license plates. If you take advantage of the duty free option you won’t be allowed to sell the car for at least one year or you will have to pay the duty. Only you and your family members will be allowed to drive it.


There are a lot of documents that need handling prior to bringing the car in the country. It is considered to be a part of your household goods and you have to prove the residency outside of the country for 2 years. The documents you are going to need are:

  • Income tax returns.
  • Property tax or rent receipts.
  • Past employment proof.
  • Bills for utility.
  • Passports of all members which are going to resettle in Greece.
  • Proof of Greek citizenship as well as residency or a work permit.
  • Driver’s License, insurance plate and vehicle registration.

Tax ID Card.

You will need an AFM card with you in order to pick your car up when it arrives. You are going to need to open a bank account or to pay taxes and you can apply for the AFM card. This is relatively easy to be done. You have to take your passport and your birth certificate in order to fill out certain forms to apply. You will be given a print out with your particular AFM number stamped on it and you must take it with you when you go to pick up your car.


Once your car is released by authorities it is going to have to be inspected. There are three different inspections:

  • For emissions.
  • General inspection.
  • For Noise.

Once you are through with them all you can apply for registration and Greek license plates. Every vehicle that is transported for personal use cannot be sold or you will have to pay the taxes that have been waived. Call in the Embassy of Greece to know more about shipping and import of vehicles in Volos.

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!
