Import Vehicle Into USA From Denmark

🇩🇰 Denmark, (DK)

Importing Vehicles Into USA From Denmark

International car shipping between America and European countries is common. Americans often have to go to the European nation of Denmark for work and business purposes. Similarly, people in this Nordic European nation relocate temporarily or permanently to the US. As a result, these travelers at some point import vehicles into the USA from Denmark.

Importing From Denmark

Unfortunately, seas separate Europe and America. So, to import vehicle into USA from Denmark, you need air or water transport. An International car carrier can help with the transport. Read on to find out what the importation process involves.

Consider the US regulation on vehicle importation

The US Customs Border protection has strict regulations governing the importation of vehicles into the US. These are the emissions standards set by the EPA and the safety and bumper standards set by the Department of Transport (DOT). Foreign vehicles not specifically manufactured for sale in the North American market hardly ever conform to the set standards. While modifications can be done before entry at the US ports, the process is extremely expensive and does not work for all vehicles. If not modified, such vehicles can only be imported temporarily. In other cases they are exported back or destroyed.

There are exceptions to the strict EPA and DOT vehicle importation guidelines. For example, vehicles older than 25 years old need not comply with all the emissions standards. For more information on the vehicle importation guidelines, visit the US Customs and Border Protection website.

Export requirements in Denmark

When you export a vehicle from Denmark, it is deregistered from the Danish Register of Motor Vehicles. Once it is deregistered, you can claim a refund on part of the original tax registration. To do so, follow the following steps;

  • The first step of this process is having your car inspected by SKAT.
  • Then request a valuation from SKAT. Note that, for you to request a valuation, the inspections must have been done in the past four weeks.
  • Return the number plates to a plates provider or motor registry office.
  • Submit documentation of the export acquired in the second step.

SKAT refunds the vehicle registration tax in about three weeks. Submit the proof of vehicle ownership if you are not in the Danish Register of Motor Vehicles. If the vehicle is bought in connection with the export: submit an invoice, a purchase agreement or a sale note.

Carefully choose a shipping company

When it comes to international shipping, you have to be careful with whom you entrust your vehicle. You do not want a situation where you wave off a vehicle from the port and that becomes the last you see of it. Look for shippers that have a solid track record, that are trustworthy, professional, and most of all, have experience transporting vehicles from Denmark to the USA.

US-based companies who provide the service are your best option. They are familiar with the US customs regulations. Also, they have better shipping equipment and have transport routes all over the country. That is, they can transport your car from the port to your doorstep or a ware house near you.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you import vehicle into USA from Denmark. We have established vehicle shipping routes from Copenhagen, Frederiksberg, Aalborg, Randers, Kolding, and other major cities in Denmark to all major cities in all 50 states in the US.

Cost of importing vehicle into USA from Denmark

The cost of importing from Denmark into the USA is dependent on several factors, e.g. import and export duty. The customs duty you pay is dependent on the amount paid or payable for the car. To know the exact amount, you are expected to pay, contact the customs offices in both countries.

The next addition to the total cost is the shipping cost. The cost of shipping is determined by;

  • Ports on the west coast (Pacific Ocean) are farther away from Denmark compared to ports on the east coast (Atlantic Ocean).
  • Method of shipping. Shipping can either be via air or water. The most affordable shipping means of transport is When you choose water transport, the options are between container shipping or RORO shipping. Generally, container shipping is more expensive and considered more secure. However, RORO shipping is equally as secure, convenient and cheap. The vehicles are rolled into the vessel and tightly secured on the decks. These vessels are water-tight and air-tight. So, the cars are protected from harsh weather conditions.

That is what you need to know to import vehicle into USA from Denmark. Understanding the importation regulations is a crucial part. Hiring a professional shipping company is equally important. Visit this page, or call us for an instant quote.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
