Three Things You Should Know About Car Removals
Here’s a small check-list on International Car Removals
- Where To Start: Before you begin shipping your car abroad you must know exactly where you want the car to land. You should do a bit of research into what port is most convenient for you. The most convenient port for you is the one that is most accessible to you and is close to your new home.
- Importation Duties And Fees: Other than Transportation and roadworthiness, the fees and charges you face when shipping your car to another country will be influenced by some significant factors. Some prices may vary from country to country, for instance, if you have your car less than 12 months and wish to transport it to the UK it will attract additional fees. Cars that are a year of ownership may qualify as duty-free but can still have charges and tax added. You should contact your removals company for a free quote and get information an all costs.
- How Will The Car Be Transported: When it comes to automobile shipping you can have it shipped in a Container or Roll on Roll off (RORO) shipping. Both options can be used for car, motorcycle, vans, and many other vehicles. RORO is the simplest and cheapest method of shipping for automobiles. Cars are simply driven on to the RORO vessels and secured to the car decks and then transported. Once the destination is reached they are driven off. Transporting your car in a shipping container may be a safer method of removing your vehicle abroad. Cars are placed in larger steel shipping containers with a closed top and hinged doors. Shipping containers may be a better option for you, as many ports may give preference to containers.
