Located in Netherlands, Breda is situated on the southern side and has a history of being of a military and political center of the country. When moving to Breda, there are so many things that you can do and see.
Bringing your own vehicle with you here is always a good idea so you can go when you want to. Before you begin the process of importing your vehicle, you need to hire A1 Auto Transport Service so they can assist with international shipping.
Shipping to Breda is not easy on your own as navigating through complete paperwork and procedures take time, and that is why A1 Auto Transport Service can assist you in every step of the way. You will first need to come up with the documentation needed in order to import; your driver's license, auto insurance proof, and your social security card as well as the title to your vehicle.
Import regulations in Netherlands.
There are strict importation laws for Netherlands. Customs will be very thorough when it comes to importing your vehicle. If you plan to move to Breda permanently, you will need to register your vehicle with the RDW office and obtain a license plate and vehicle registration for Breda. If you plan to be in Breda for a short period of time, you will be able to keep your U.S license plate and registration during your stay.
If you have been living in Breda for at least one year, you will be able to apply for exemption from duty and taxes on your import. Otherwise, you will need to pay those duties and taxes when you import. You will need to have owned your vehicle for at least six months prior to importing it. You can find out more about the regulations of importing by contacting the Netherlands Embassy located in Washington, DC. Value Added Tax and Green Tax will be charged as well as other import duty during import.
You can only ship your vehicle by freight ships or can get the vehicle air shipped. Though air shipping is extremely expensive, it is the fastest way of having your vehicle with you in Netherlands. However, as it is out of the budget of most customers, it is best to select from any of these two methods:
Roll On/ Roll Off Shipping: When you choose this shipping method, you are able to ship your personal vehicle efficiently by way of sea. Your vehicle will need to be emptied during transport and the exterior of your vehicle will need to be cleaned. You won't be able to keep exterior parts on such as ground lights or antennas during travel.
Container shipping: When you have a vehicle you want to keep inside a container during shipping, this is the method for you. Container shipping allows you the room to ship household goods as well. A1 Auto Transport Service will go over all these shipping regulations and charges before you ship.
