Temporary vehicle importation

The first thing you should consider is whether you are importing the vehicle temporarily or permanently. If you are importing a vehicle temporarily, the vehicle need not comply with the federal emissions standards. However, the vehicle can only stay within the US borders for a maximum period of 12 months. Temporary vehicle importation is for the purposes of repair, alteration, testing, and exhibition. For shipped vehicles, the customs offices require the filing of a temporary importation under bond (TIB). If you, the owner, accompanies the vehicle across the border, the bond is not necessary.

Permanent vehicle importation

If you plan to permanently import vehicle into USA from Norway, there are a lot of things to consider. The most important consideration is whether the vehicle you plan to import matches the US safety and bumper standards, and emissions standards set by the DOT and EPA respectively. If a vehicle that does not conform to these standards lands on the borders, it might be confiscated or exported back to the origin. Vehicle modification is an option, but an expensive one without guarantee of success. For these reasons, we always advise people in Norway planning to relocate to the US to always purchase vehicles manufactured for North America.

Exportation duty

Norwegian Customs require that you declare the vehicle at the customs offices before removing it out of the country. You can visit a Norwegian Customs office to obtain a clearance form. You can also electronically declare exportations using a clearance system called TVINN. If you are not in Norway, you can hire a forwarding agent to make the declaration and complete the clearance form on your behalf.

Vehicle registration tax refund

For a car to be registered in Norway, a one-off registration tax is paid. Before you export, you can claim a refund of a portion of the original registration tax. The refund amount should be equivalent to the registration tax one would pay at the time of export. In other words, a certain amount is deducted based on the age of the vehicle. The Norwegian Tax Administration calculates the refund amount. The tax refund can only be obtained if you present the tax administration with Norwegian Customs clearance form. Obtaining the refund means that you are deregistering the vehicle from the Norwegian vehicle registry. Deregistering is only a good option if you do not plan to come back to Norway with the vehicle. Visit this page for more on the registration tax refund.

How much does it cost to import vehicle into the US from Norway?

The total cost of importation is a sum of the customs duty and the shipping cost. Contact the relevant customs offices for more insight on the taxes you will be expected to pay. Also, research if you qualify for any duty exemptions.

The shipping costs vary depending on the distance, the method of shipping and method of delivery. Typically shipping from Norway to the US will cost anywhere from $2,000 to figures north of $6,000. As with any other shipment from European countries, it costs more to ship to the West Coast than it costs to ship to the East Coast.

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!
