Ship Car To Zabbar

🇲🇹 Malta, (MT)

Ship Car To Zabbar
🇲🇹 Malta, (MT)

The sixth largest city in Malta, Zabbar is a panoramic destination and a popular tourist attraction in the country. If you are moving here permanently as a returning citizen or for a short period due to work or to study, importing your vehicle holds advantage. This is because public transportation isn’t as efficient as you want and hiring a car on a regular basis can be expensive.

Although you need to take the ferry to visit the adjoining islands, but driving around in Zabbar and other cities in Malta are a breeze with well-maintained roads.  With tropical weather all through the year, it is always pleasant to sightsee and drive around the country.

Before you actually ship to Malta, it is better to work with an international auto transport service that has experience in shipping to Malta and is conversant with the various regulations. At A1 Auto Transport service, we not only help you at every step of the shipping procedure but offer ‘door-to-door’ and ‘port-to-port’ services. This means that if you select door to door service, we pick your car from your door in US and deliver it to the address in Zabbar. While port to port is from US port to Zabbar port in Malta. Thereafter, the owner or an authorized representative has to collect it from the Maltese port. These services would be charged extra but you have the convenience of knowing that while you focus on other aspects of your move, we’ll be taking care of the vehicle for you. However, this is the list of documents that are needed:

  • Car insurance certificate.
  • Social security card.
  • Driver’s license.
  • Car title.
  • Proof of purchase and details of the engine/chassis number, model and make.
  • Signed power of attorney.

Additionally there are specific conditions that have to be fulfilled before you are allowed to import your vehicle. Some of these conditions include:

  • Live in Zabbar or any other city in Malta for minimum of 6 months before you can import.
  • You should own the vehicle in US for at least 6 months before you moved to Malta.

You have the choice of shipping your car by RORO or container shipping depending upon your budget and the type of vehicle you own. Expensive and luxury cars have an added lawyer of security when they are shipped within 20 feet or 40 feet sealed containers. The standard vehicles can be driven on and off the ship and harnessed in the bays on the deck. However, you can opt for any of these methods for your vehicle irrespective of the price. There are a couple of limitations associated with RORO that need to be adhered to.

Exemptions on custom taxes.

Though this is the eligibility criteria, there are certain exemptions on custom duty and related taxes that you can avail if you are returning citizen or one of the permanent residents who was living abroad and are coming back, you are exempt from import duties. However, you need to have:

  • Provide proof of Insurance at the time of importation.
  • Vehicle registration and repair log.
  • Arrange for an inspection with the Transport Malta Agency.

Only permanent imports are taxed while temporary import of vehicles doesn’t come under the purview of taxation or adherence of the laws on license plates and driving license. The inspection is an important aspect of importing the vehicle and has to be done within the first week of vehicle import. You have to fill out forms VEH01, VEH02, VEH03 and VEH04 to get the appointment. The Letter of Conformity to the emissions laws in Malta is needed. You will need to get the local driving license and license plate. The car registration is needed and the fee is based on the value of the vehicle. Emission regulations are highly regarded and there are types of emissions to conform to.

To know more about the import laws on vehicles and documentation that is needed, you can contact the Embassy of Malta.

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!
