Shipping your car to Austria

So, what are the logistics of shipping your car to Austria? For one, it is a landlocked country. Visit our information page for more hints.  You will not be able to directly ship your car to Austria by sea. We choose Germany or Italy port which we think is the best bet for international shipment. Having it arrive through Italy would have a shorter travel distance on land, but getting to a port in Germany may be more complicated. If your starting point is not a country that borders either the Mediterranean Sea or the Tyrrhenian Sea, you will have to have your car shipped through the Gibraltar Strait that is between Spain and Morocco.

The strait is what connects the North Atlantic Ocean to the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is a very important international shipping channel. Your car shipped to Germany and then transported to Austria, it will be ferried across either the Baltic Sea or the North Sea. The Baltic Sea borders many European countries including Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, and Russia. The North Sea, on the other hand, connects to Norway, the Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom via the English Channel. This sea is your link to the North Atlantic Ocean, so it is your best option for shipping your car to Austria internationally from across the ocean. If you live anywhere in Canada, the United States of America, or any other country in North or South America.

RoRo shipping method

How exactly do you ship your car by sea to another country, including Austria? Well the most popular method we use is RoRo Shipping, or Roll On Roll Off shipping. In addition, we drive your car onto a boat, taken we take it across the sea, and we drive it off the boat at your destination. Your Vehicle will be loaded onto a truck or driven to its final destination, after your vehicle arrives in either Italy or Germany. Further more it is the quickest and most reliable option. We will be glad to help you get your vehicle shipped to where it needs to go. Above all do not worry about the details, clearing customs, or figuring out the quickest and least expensive route – let us handle that for you! We wish you the best of luck on your trip to Austria, and hope you have a great time.
