Military Car Shipping to Germany
There is a lot of preparation involved in the shipping process of a military vehicle into Germany. Before your military car can gain access into any foreign country, you will need to make sure it meets the standards and stipulations of the country’s foreign import policy. You will also need to prepare the proper paperwork to ship your military car to the nation.
Unlike moving a car within the borders of the United States, shipping a car overseas is a whole different and more detailed process. Having your vehicle accessible to you is going to enrich your time spent in Germany by giving you the freedom to travel faster. It will also save you from having to deal with the chaos of public transport, currency issues and language barriers.
Some of the Documentation to Gather
- Driver’s License
- Proof of Insurance
- Original Title and Registration
- Original Purchase Invoice
- Import License
- Military Orders

Find the Right Military Car Shipping Company

Read customer reviews about the company and check out any ratings left. Look for credentials such as state licensing, BBB approval and US DOT registration. Local, state and federal certifications are also great for them to possess. By state law, all transporters must provide their customers with some insurance coverage. Pay close attention to all the details of the companies that offer military shipping services to Germany before you hastily hire one for the job.
