Ship Your Car To Or From Austria

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Having a car shipped to Austria usually costs from $2,500 to $4,500 (from the United States). Only a portion of that falls under actual shipping costs since there are also marine insurance, duties, and import taxes involved.
  • It’s important to note that vehicles imports are taxed based on their assessed value in Austria, so luxury cars are will have a higher duty.

Best Car Shipping Company Austria

Within the European Union

When importing/exporting a car into Austria from another country associated with the European Union, you will not have to pay duties on that vehicle because the European Union acts as a customs community. You will need to purchase transfer license plates and a short-term insurance policy for the duration of your stay in Austria.

If you plan to live there permanently, you will need to comply with Austrian licensing laws. You will also need to produce the following documents:

  • Proof of ownership and the bill of sale for your vehicle.
  • All registration fees and the NOVA tax.
  • A Certificate of Conformity that ensures the safety of the vehicle.

Outside the European Union

Austrian import/export regulations of vehicles from countries not affiliated with the EU are a little bit different. You will still need to produce documentation such as a proof of value for the car, a T1 consignment note, an import declaration, and in some cases, a proof of preferential origin to get a discounted customs rate.

However, in addition to the documents, you will also have to pay a duty in order to import it into Austria. A 10% duty on the value of the car, a 20% import turnover tax, and the standard consumption tax (NOVA) are all payable at the time of importation.

Note: For European countries not associated with the EU, the 10% value duty can be waived if preferential origin can be proven.

Specifics for Importing from the United States

In addition to the non-EU regulations, there are importation rules that are specific to the United States. For instance, before the car can be imported into Austria from the U.S., it will need to be converted to Austrian specifications. This process can be expensive and time-consuming. Austria has certain regulations for emissions, noise, lights, and other parts to the car that will need to be changed before moving the car from the U.S.

An additional road tax will also be administered depending on the amount of horsepower used by the vehicle. If it is less than 24 horsepower, though, the tax is exempt.

For more information regarding moving from the U.S. to Austria, please visit the Austrian Embassy website.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Austria

Need help shipping your oversized cargo to Austria? At A1 Auto Transport, we have the experience and access to state-of-the-art equipment to ship any type of heavy equipment overseas. Any cargo that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container is usually considered oversized unless its weight surpasses its size greatly. Some examples of oversized cargo include…

  • Farm Equipment
  • Industrial Equipment
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Dump Trucks
  • Large Trucks or Heavy Vehicles
  • Cranes
  • Engineering Equipment
  • Agricultural Equipment and more…

Not only can we ensure a safe delivery, but we will make sure your cargo is approved for export and import. Complying with import policies is perhaps the most confusing and difficult part of the entire overseas shipping process, especially for those unfamiliar with foreign import laws. With our assistance everything will go along as planned without hindrance.

Overseas Shipping Options

There are several overseas shipping options depending on the heavy equipment or oversized cargo you’d like to have shipped over from the U.S. to Austria. Some of these options are less expensive than others. Below are the shipping options we offer to those transporting equipment overseas.

  • Lift-On Lift-Off (LoLo) - This method of transport is mostly recommended to those shipping inoperable vehicles or crated heavy equipment. The oversized cargo is lifted with a crane and placed on the cargo ship. It is also removed from the ship in the same manner.
  • Roll-On Roll-Off (RoRo) - This is the least expensive overseas transport method. However, not all seaports permit imports shipped with this method so ground transport might also be necessary. With this shipping service, the motorized vehicle or heavy equipment is rolled onto and off of the ship.
  • Flat Rack - A flat rack is similar to the frame of a shipping container. However, the walls and ceiling are completely open and your equipment is secured to the rack itself. Since flat racks are typically the last to be loaded onto the ship, your equipment may be covered with shrink wrap for added protection from outside elements.
  • Container Shipping - This method is not always an option. Most heavy equipment and oversized cargo won’t fit into a 40ft container. Nonetheless, if your equipment is considerably heavy despite its ability to fit into a 40ft container, than you can use this shipping method. With the four walls and ceiling barricading it, this method of transport protects your cargo more than the other shipping methods offered.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
