Ship Car To Berlin

Ship Car To Berlin
🇩🇪 Germany, (DE)

Car Shipping Berlin

Berlin, the Capital City of Germany is a densely populated city that is filled with beautiful rivers, lakes and woodland areas. When you relocate to Berlin, you may find that hiring a rental car or taxi to complete your daily travel can become quite expensive and the best way to combat the excessive transportation fees as well as to enjoy your new home in Berlin is to have your own vehicle imported to the city for your use. While Germany has some strict import regulations for motor vehicles, your auto transport agent in the United States will be able to walk you through the steps to export your personal vehicle out of the U.S. and into Berlin as easily and quickly as possible. Your agent will require specific documents from you as well as financial and insurance obligations that will be discussed prior to shipping. Another important thing to consider is that Germany has important regulations for motor vehicles pertaining to the environment and there may be a chance that you will need to make modifications to your vehicle before it can be shipped.

Motor Vehicle Regulations for Customs

When you are importing your vehicle to Berlin from the United States you will have to adhere to many factors prior to bringing the car into the port. You will be required to pay VAT (Value Added Tax) and Import Duties on the vehicle. You can have this waived on a few conditions. Those conditions include:

  • You are planning on becoming a resident of Berlin
  • The vehicle is registered in your name
  • You have lived outside of the EU for the last twelve months
  • You have owned the vehicle for at least six months prior to shipping
  • You will either export the vehicle back to the U.S. or will sell it in Germany prior to leaving Berlin and returning to the U.S.

If you cannot prove the listed requirements to waive the taxes and duty fees, you will have to pay a duty fee equal to 10% of the total vehicle value as well as a 19% Import tax. The vehicle value will be determined by the customs agent by checking the U.S. manufacturer’s handbook. If you plan on registering your vehicle once it has cleared customs you will need to have the vehicle inspected at the local TUV office which is a technical inspection association. The inspection will verify that your vehicle passes all of the national safety standards. If it does not pass the inspection you will not be able to drive your vehicle. Once the vehicle passes the technical inspection you will then proceed to the Department of Motor Vehicles and will be able to apply to register the vehicle in Berlin. For more information on Customs requirements and Motor Vehicle Registration, you can contact the German Missions in the United States.

Prior to Shipping

Prior to shipping your vehicle to Berlin you need to decide the type of shipping that is best for your situation, pay your auto transport fees for local as well as international shipping and make sure you have a finalized quote showing what fees, if any, you will need to pay immediately upon the vehicle being delivered to Berlin. U.S. Customs will be able to provide you more information on export regulations when shipping vehicles or personal items from the U.S. to Berlin, Germany. Once all of the paperwork has been taken care of you will need to confirm that method of shipping you will be using and will need to pay your shipping fees. The ways you can ship to Berlin are:

Ro-Ro Shipping is preferred choice of shipping a vehicle to another country. With Ro-Ro Shipping, vehicles are driven directly on the carrier ship at the point of origin and driven off at the destination point. This is the quickest and least expensive way of shipping a vehicle to Berlin.

Your vehicle will be shipped inside of a container on a carrier ship from the United States to the closest port of Berlin. While Container Shipping is a bit more expensive than Ro-Ro Shipping due to the added cost of the container fee, it is a great value when you want to ship other items with your vehicle. You have an option of a 20ft or a 40ft container and can easily have your vehicle and other items shipped at the same time.

Air shipping is by far the fastest way of shipping a vehicle to Berlin, but it is also the most expensive of the three ways of transporting. Your transporter can give full details of the cost of air service when you speak to them.

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!
