Our process

Planning

We have to plan every step involved in getting the vehicle(s) on American soil from Germany. We walk through the entire process with our clients, starting by identifying the vehicle make, model, year of manufacture (also known as the vehicle profile) and from which warehouse itโ€™s coming from. The vehicleโ€™s particulars will determine a great deal how much the shipping is going to cost.

The means of transport is selected prior to the start of the process. While air freight is recommended for luxurious vehicles, ocean freight (in enclosed containers) is also an okay option. We offer both options to our clients, ensuring that the vehicle will be in perfect condition all through. While most car manufacturers will offer delivery services to a port or airport of the clientโ€™s choice, some require clients to make personal arrangements. Thatโ€™s why the location of the warehouse in Germany is important in order to plan to transport the vehicle to the most convenient German Port or Airport.

The planning also involves deciding which US port the vehicle is being shipped to and the mode of delivery to the client. We offer both door โ€“ door & terminal โ€“ terminal services.

Cost estimation

After the planning, we use our comprehensive cost calculator to give an estimated quote on how much it will cost to import vehicle into USA from Germany. The final figure is determined by the total distance covered during transportation, the vehicle profile, and of course, the taxes customs and duties that come with car shipping. Generally, air freight is more expensive in comparison to ocean freight. Have a look at these in more detail here. Remember, this figure is just an estimate, so allow room for variations.

Documentation

The vehicle(s) have to be cleared by German authorities before they can leave the port. This is done by taking care of all relevant documentation including customs, duties, taxes and any other fees as deemed fit by the German authorities. Also included in the documentation is a detailed pre-shipping car hauler inspection report which records the vehicleโ€™s profile and condition it is in at the moment our personnel receive it.

Shipping

Once the car is cleared, it starts making its way to you. A travel schedule is provided to the client so that they can be brought up to speed on the ETA. Transport by air normally takes several hours to a day while transport by ocean takes longer โ€“ a week or more.

Delivery

Upon arrival on US soil, the relevant documentation (customs, safety inspection, emissions checks, bill of lading, etc.) is taken care of and our team delivers the vehicle to you. Door-to-door delivery will see your vehicle delivered at the address you provide, while terminal-tot-terminal delivery involves dropping off your vehicle at a designated pick up point.
