Shipping Car To Romania
If you plan to move to Romania or for other reasons you need to ship a car there, you will have to hire a company that can transport your vehicle. First and foremost, you will have to get some shipping car to Romania quotes from the companies that can offer these services. We highly recommend that you get as many quotes as possible due to the reason that shipping a car overseas can be very expensive and you’ll definitely want to get the best deal available. You will have to ask the companies if they belong to the Better Business Bureau or the American Movers and Storage Association.
The most affordable type of shipping would have to be “roll on, roll off” (RORO). However, the boats that provide ROR leave the port less often in comparison to the container boats. These RORO boats leave every 10 days while container boats that leave every 7 days. Although the container method is more expensive, choosing this one will allow you to pack other goods in that container, along with the vehicle.
Before the shipping date occurs, you should take your car to a mechanic and get it inspected. The customs in Romania may refuse your vehicle if it is not Euro 5 or 6 compliant. You should know that Romania adheres to the EU guidelines regarding emissions, allowing a limit of up to 1,000 milligrams of CO2 / km from the beginning of this year until 2014. Starting with the following year, the EU standards will reduce that limit to only 500 g/km. For these reasons, you should do an emissions test of your car before shipping it.
Don’t forget about getting some insurance for the car, you never know what might happen during the transportation. This insurance will cover not only the damages that occur during the shipment, but also loss or theft.
When you set the date regarding the shipment of the car, talk to the shipping company about whether you want to come to the port and take the car or you want it to be delivered to a certain destination. The latter option will cost you more. You can also ask them to deliver it to the nearest drop-off, which in most cases would have to be the country’s capital – Bucharest.
