As part of the European Union, Belgium has entered into a common trade agreement with all the other countries within the EU. That being said, importing cars from one of these other EU countries into Belgium is less regulated and less expensive than importing from a non-EU country. Regardless of where the imported car comes from, there are a few things you will need to recognize before importing/exporting into Belgium.

Importing from Outside the European Union

Unfortunately, when importing a car from countries that fall outside the purview of the European Union, you will often find it to be a lengthier process. For that reason, many people choose not to do so. However, if you do choose to import your vehicle, there are some things you need to know.

First off, if you import your vehicle for personal reasons or as part of a household item, then you may find that you are exempt from certain customs duties and the VAT. However, these exemptions are only valid under the following conditions:

  • The owner must have lived outside of the EU for at least twelve consecutive months preceding the importation of the vehicle
  • The car must have been purchased outside the EU and have been driven for at least six months prior to arrival in Belgium
  • The owner must have already paid the VAT or equivalent prior to the car’s entrance into Belgium
  • The owner must keep the vehicle for at least twelve months following import.

Note: All of these conditions must be met in order to have the possibility of exemption from duties and taxes.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Belgium

In order to clear customs with your vehicle, you must have the following documents upon arrival:

  1. Letter requesting exemption from duties and taxes.
  2. The bill of sale for the vehicle.
  3. The title for the vehicle.
  4. Receipt or proof of payment for the VAT or its equivalent.
  5. Receipt of insurance for six months prior to import.
  6. Proof of residency outside the EU for at least twelve months prior to import.
  7. Shipping document for personal items.

Note: If the vehicle does not meet the requirements for import duty exemption, the owner will be liable for any duties and VATs in accordance with the market value of the car.


Once your car is imported/exported into Belgium, it will need to be officially registered with the Belgian authorities. This can be a lengthy process, but it is necessary to complete it within six months of the importation of your vehicle. It must be completed after you have received customs clearance.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Belgium

It takes experience, access to durable shipping equipment and haulers, and careful planning to successfully ship heavy equipment or oversized cargo overseas to another nation. That’s why A1 Auto Transport is here to help. We will handle your cargo’s transport from the U.S. to Belgium so it’s guaranteed to get delivered safely.

At A1, we’re able to ship basically any type of heavy equipment. In our history with the industry, some of this cargo includes but isn’t limited to, farm equipment, mining equipment, cranes, RVs, backhoes, pavers, construction equipment, excavators, industrial machinery, large vehicles, and more. Of course due to weight and size, oversized cargo and heavy equipment shipping services tend to cost slightly more than standard auto transport services. Generally, any piece of equipment or vehicle that is of substantial weight or that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container is considered to meet these standards.

We do offer insurance coverage to each of our shipping customers for their transport. However, with heavy equipment and overseas transports, it’s wise to have the full value of your equipment or cargo covered. For those that wish for full coverage, we offer additional insurance protection.

International Transport Options for Oversized Cargo and Heavy Equipment

The international transport methods available to you will depend on the type of cargo you’re planning to ship to Belgium. Nevertheless, we have four overseas transport methods available overall. In most cases, these shipping methods are accompanied by ground transport services. Our transport specialists will help you make any decisions and will carefully plan the safest and most efficient way to ship your cargo. Here are the four transport methods we offer to our customers:

  • Flat Rack Transport- your cargo is secured to a large metal rack before being placed on the ship for its delivery to Belgium.
  • Container Shipping- the safest transport method and also the most expensive. Your cargo is placed within a 40ft shipping container so that is protected from potential outside hazards as it makes its way to the delivery address.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping- RoRo shipping is the most affordable since it’s a simple open air service that requires your large vehicle or heavy equipment to be operable so that it can roll on and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping- this shipping method is also referred to as LoLo shipping. It is highly recommended to those with broken down equipment and large vehicles. A crane is used to lift inoperable vehicles and crated equipment onto the ship carefully. THe cargo is removed from the ship in the same manner.

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!
