Importing Vehicles Into USA From The Netherlands

Vehicle exports took up 4.3% of the total global shipments from The Netherlands in 2016. The country, which exports a number of goods, has seen a rise in sales within the automotive industry as compared to previous years. The main reason for increase in vehicle exports is due to the elimination of tax obligations of goods bought from the country. Some of the well-known car brands in the country are Volvo and Mitsubishi which are quite affordable driving up the demand to import vehicle into USA from the Netherlands. To get your car shipped successfully into the US, you need to consider the following steps.

Buy from reputable sellers

The best way to get a good deal when buying a new or used car is to purchase it from a reputable seller. The seller can be an individual or a company depending on the type of vehicle you want to buy. It is important that you get correct documents of the new vehicle to prepare for export to the US. Some of the documents that you will receive from a genuine car seller include vehicle registration, odometer reading, and registration plates. Also, ensure that your car meets theΒ import regulations in the US to avoid any delays at the port or any need for modifications before entry is allowed.

Get Your Vehicle De-Registered

The process of deregistration in the Netherlands is important for cars that have to be shipped outside the country. Deregistration is done through The Dutch Vehicle Authority (RDW) for most cars within the country through submission of documents provided by the seller. The documents required for the process to be complete include Part I and II of the registration document as well as the transfer certificate. Also, you are required to have license plates as well as an identity paper in its original form. When the process of deregistration is complete, you will need to have a Dutch registration number plate on a temporary basis until new registration is done in USA.

Put Together Export Documents

When issued with a temporary plate number, you only have fourteen days to ship your car out of the country. During these days, it is important to prepare all the documents needed for exporting the vehicle. To import vehicle into USA from the Netherlands you will require additional documents beyond the basic ones you may be used to. That isbecause North America is not within the European Union. Some of these documents include EAD customs, export declaration, and export certificate. They are important for shipping companies and individuals looking to import vehicle into USA from the Netherlands and are stamped at the EU border. The official stamp is proof that export of the car actually took place.

Buy Insurance For Your Car

Once your car has been deregistered in The Netherlands, its insurance is no longer valid in the country. It is for this reason that vehicle owners are warned to keep off the road when arranging for shipment of the car. Permission to drive the car is only allowed when it gets to the destination country. Nevertheless, buying insurance is still important as it covers any damages that may take place during the shipment to the US. Make sure the preferred insurance package offers a cover for your vehicle depending on the specific mode of transportation, or a combination of transport options. Also, it is advisable to engage the services of an insurance company based in the USA or hand over the process to shipping agents.

Hire A Shipping Company

Finding anΒ international auto transport company is much easier with many of them putting up websites with information about their services. To successfully import a vehicle into USA from the Netherlands, you need to work with a reputable company that handles such shipping regularly. Ensure that they are licensed and have the equipment needed to load and offload the car from the point of origin to its destination. Apart from having the legal requirements to offer shipping services to clients, the shipping company should have great customer service to make the process much easier.

Register the Car In USA

Once the vehicle has arrived at the port in the US, you can decide to drive it home or have the transporter deliver it. However, you will first need to clear with customers by declaring information about the car and registering it without delay. On most occasions, the information to declare is readily available from RDW and includes the approval number, technical date and class of vehicle.

Satisfied Customers

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“Dear Tracey, I am in the high technology industry with lots and lots of global competition, so I fully appreciate competitive selling situation. In today's fast paced business environment, true customer service is becoming an exception rather than a standard practice. I maintain this fact as I sell to my global clients ranging from electronic giants like Samsung, Motorola to unknown smaller customers in Taiwan. I took notice of Nicole's exceptional professionalism on the phone and her empathy to an already fraustrated customer (dealing with another transport company). Her followup after my initial inquiry for a quote is truly the reason why I chose to do my business with A1 Auto Transport. If Nicole's Customer Service skills are mere routine practice in your firm, then Bravo to management; if not, Nicole deserves to be recognized. Best Wishes, Homin Paik”

“I had a great time transporting my car to California thanks A1 Auto Transport. Joe’s quote was reasonable and his reasoning and explanations were spot on. He couldn’t make it to the pickup, but he did call to make sure things were ok. The driver inspected my car, and I appreciated his professionalism. While it was on its way, Joe regularly sent me updates on its location through text. He estimated it would arrive in 5-6 days, and it was so. I was also given the contact information of my driver, so I could call both him and Joe if I ever felt the need to. My car got to Sacramento, California on the 5th day, and it was great to see it was well. There wasn’t any damage done to it during transit. This fact, Joe’s updates, and the fact that they met their deadline makes me recommend A1 Auto Transport as one of the best auto transport companies out there. It’s the 3rd company I’ve used to move a vehicle, and it will likely also be the 4th.”

“I had to be in Alabama to help my father through some tough times, so I could only give A1 Auto Transport a 2-day notice. To my amazement, a truck arrived the same day I made the call. I wanted my car in 5 days max, and they got it there in 3. Honestly, I was skeptical about using a transport service, with so many negative reviews online. A1 Auto Transport had a surprising lack of bad publicity, and I can now see why. The car got to Alabama in perfect condition. It’s a great company for beginners who don’t much about the industry and need to be guided through everything. Everyone was also super kind which is something I rarely see these days.”

“Mark, Thanks for your prompt reply and for the opportunity to present feedback. Lessons learned can be a powerfull tool when used correctly and judiciously. After purchasing my vehicle on Ebay, I Googled "auto transport" and began to look at several different choices. This is where my comments on A-1 begin: Webpage - 5 Star Rating - Your page was straight forward and simple to use. I was able to read customer comments (which is important to most consumers) and I was able to request an online quote. (not a feature offered by everyone) Quote - 5 Star Rating - Kudos to whoever is involved in developing your pricing structure. Very competitive. With three children in university at the same time, and an exwife with a good attorney, I have to be financially prudent. This was the largest single factor for my decision, followed closely by your customer feedback. Customer Service / Contracting & Payment - 5 Star Rating - Once I had determined to accept your offer, I decided to do it by phone. The process was quick, courteous, and professional. This was done on 03/04. Tracking # and GPS - 5 Star rating - Shortly after contracting and paying I received my tracking #. What a great use of leading edge technology. Very powerfull tool. (I am sure that this has helped cut down on the number of "nuisance" calls that you receive) Customer Service / Questions & Updates - 1 Star Rating - I am by nature a patient person, and am more than cognizant of outside influences on "schedule slip", so when it was determined that it would take longer than the original estimate of 10 - 14 days, I was not worried or upset. I had done my homework, had contracted a reputable company, and simply accepted the fact that it would take longer, no big deal. The ETD listed on the tracking page was 03/28. Early ( I am usually in the office by 05:30) that morning I could see that my vehicle was in Baytown, Tx., which is a suburb of Houston, Southeast of my home by approximately 20 miles. I knew that the tracking page noted that I would be notified 12 - 24 hours in advance of delivery. My problem was that I had scheduled meetings for most of the day and simply wanted to find out if I could get a bit more precise estimate of delivery time. I phoned that morning and the operator was quite courteous, but informed me "due to the high volume of calls, all customer service reps were busy", could I please call back. I called back a couple of hours later and was informed that "due to the high volume of calls, all customer service reps are busy", could I please call back in the afternoon. That afternoon, I called on two different occasions, with the same response (very polite), and on the last call was asked if I could call back in the morning. A little frustrating, but not the end of the world. We are now past the extended ETD. The next morning (03/29 - my vehicle had moved to the very edge of the city and very close to my office) I called and was informed that "due to the high volume''''''...). I told the operator that I would really prefer to just be put on hold and I would wait my turn, and she politely agreed to do so. During the next 30 minutes, she came back twice to politely check on me, which I found reassuring. I was feeling good about getting through right up to the point of being cut off. After being on hold for that length of time, no one wants to be cut off. Now I am a little frustrated. At this point I went online and sent a polite email to customer service, explaining my situation and frustration. The page noted that my mail would be answered within four hours, and by then it was lunch time, so I really thought I would not see my car on 03/29 either, if the 12-24 rule really applied. Customer Service / E-mail - 5 Star Rating - In less than an hour I had an e-mail back from Mark apoligizing for the confusion and promising find out what was happening. Before I could respond to the e-mail, Kevin called and asked if it would be possible to deliver my vehicle that afternoon. Customer Service / Delivery - 5 Star Rating - Within 5 hours of being contacted by phone my vehicle was dropped in front of my house. I was notified not only that the delivery would be made, but also when the driver got close to the house. Very courteous and professional. Customer Service / Post Delivery - 5 Star Rating - Mark has followed up with e-mails and a phone call to make sure that the matter had been resolved and even asked for feedback. (This last item is something that all good companies want, regardless if it is good, bad, or ugly) In summary, I am quite pleased with my overall experience with A-1 and will use you again. I would like to note that if the customer service agents are truly that busy, it is not the operators fault. I know very little about your industry, and don't know if this is a seasonal thing or what. I can only think of two ways to mitigate this problem. 1) Advise all clients that all communication post-contract will be through e-mail (less than an attractive option) or, 2) hire more customer service reps. (this is also a signal that business is good'''''smile). Thanks for your time and attention.”
