Can anyone tell me their experience of shipping a car to Israel? I will be working there for 2 years. What do I need to know?
Jaschase replied on July 02, 2015 with:
Well, for one, it's not easy or cheap. Even for a 6 month temporary stay, I think you still end up paying a massive tax on the vehicle so make it's worth your time and money to do it. This page has some relevant information that you may find helpful https://www.a1autotransport.com/ship-car-to-israel.php Ultimately, you'll need to contact a shipper to have your questions answered anyway, so you may as well start. Contact several before committing to one and never pay for an estimate.

Hi, I would like to bring a car with me to Israel during my summer vacation. Does anyone knows how to do it? Must i have an Israeli driver's license to do it? What about Insurance? How long can i leave it in Israel for? Whom is allowed to drive the car? Many thanks
Jaschase replied on July 02, 2015 with:
I agree with this. You're better off just renting something if it's a short term stay.

Hi, If you are coming to Israel for the summer vacation only, leave your car behind and get a rental car instead. Happy holidays.

Hello, I'm the segment producer a new television series for Travel Channel tentatively titled “Relocated.” It follows the stories of people who are looking to relocate from the US to another country (most likely due to a new job, job transfer, etc.). We're currently shooting an episode in Buenos Aires and Budapest, but we would also like to find people moving to Tel Aviv, Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, We are open to people who are moving to any International city, preferably a non-English speaking city! We are looking to find a couple or family who is considering moving to a new country from the US. We would fly them RT for a “scout trip” where they would meet a relocations expert who will show them the city and several of its unique neighborhoods. I am trying to get the word out about this opportunity to find a couple/family who may be relocationg. This would obviously be great exposure for the city and would speak directly to those looking to relocate. Please get in touch with- Christine Hammersley Segment Producer Relocated, Travel Channel US – christine@karga7.com (213) 926-6456

Expat Report Moving to R''aanana, Israel was published
Moving-to-R''aanana
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

I would be very reluctant to move into a home that I bought without having some real experience in the country and the city. It is too significant a purchase to make without a serious study of what the specific neighborhood, let alone the city is like. Walking through a neighborhood is insufficient.

Here is an article that I wrote in the Wall Street Journal that gives more detail on moving to Israel.
