About International Auto Transport.
Countless businesses and individuals use auto shipping services every day. Anyone involved in the sale, trade or manufacturing of motor vehicles knows that the safest and most cost efficient way to ship a car is through a reliable transport company. They’re the only ones with the vessels and equipment to deliver the cars across the ocean. They also have a strong comprehension of foreign laws and will help you gather the right paperwork to gain import approval from Customs.
The Netherlands has always kept fairly relaxed auto import laws. Only temporary visitors are allowed to have a vehicle imported for personal use. The car may enter the country tax-free if it is approved for a permit. Apply for the permit through the Customs office. You may also want to contact the Embassy of the Netherlands to gain knowledge of the latest import regulations and tax rates. Take notes as you have them on the phone.
After the car’s trip to the Netherlands is set up and you’ve attained the certificate for import approval, it’s time to get the vehicle looking its best. Clean the inside and outside. For those who chose open air services, clean the car out entirely so there’s no extra weight. For anyone who chose container shipping, make sure all possessions are allowed into the nation before they are transported with the car. Check all fluids in the car and only leave ¼ tank of gas or less. Finally, take pictures of the car and note any preexisting damages.
