Zaragoza is a beautiful city on the Ebro River in Spain. From the immaculate beauty of the landscapes that range from desert-like to the spacious meadows and wildlife, Zaragoza is one of the most extraordinary cities in Spain to live in. When you need to relocate your vehicle to Zaragoza from the Unites States, there are a few things about the city that you should be aware of. While Zaragoza is very beautiful, traffic can also be quite dense during the rush hour daily. You will want to drive slowly and cautiously during heavier traffic times. When you’re ready to relocate your vehicle, you’ll need to make sure that you have the proper paperwork filled out and all of the necessary documents to accommodate the international shipping preparations and customs regulations.
You will need to provide a few documents to the international auto transport company when you are making your shipping arrangements. A few of the standard required documents are:
- Driver’s License
- Social Security Card
- Proof of Insurance
- Power of Attorney (Signed)
- Vehicle Title and Registration

Prior to Shipping Your Vehicle
Prior to shipping your vehicle, you will need to make sure that you have a finalized quote from the transport agency that will detail the type of shipping you have chosen, all paperwork and documents that will be required, and what you will need to do to prepare your vehicle for shipping. The agent will also go over the different types of shipping available for the area that you are relocating the vehicle to, and the specifics on what you need to do to prepare your vehicle to be shipped as well as the cost of shipping and delivery if you need the vehicle to be picked up at your location or delivered when it reaches Zaragoza. For more information on required customs paperwork and documents that you will need when shipping a vehicle to Zaragoza, you can speak to your transport agent, or you can contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency.
Types of Shipping
Ro-Ro Shipping- Roll-On Roll-Off Shipping is the least expensive as well as the fastest way to ship overseas by carrier ship. Your vehicle will be driven directly onto the carrier ship and secured in place, and then driven off when it reaches the destination port in Zaragoza.
Container Shipping- With container shipping your vehicle will be loaded into a container and then loaded onto the carrier ship. Container shipping is a great service for those who may have personal items they need to have shipped along with their vehicle.
Air Cargo Shipping- Shipping by air is the fastest way to have your vehicle shipped to Zaragoza. While shipping a car by air is the more expensive route to go, for those who may have a classic or luxury car, air shipping is not only the quickest way to have your vehicle delivered but is also the safest way to ship.
