Temporary vehicle import.

There are no import duties or taxes under this method. You require vehicle registration and submit proof of stay apart from paying an application fee of US$73. When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we will ensure that all custom procedures and documentation is done properly so there are no delays or issues. Some of the essential documents include:
- Title deed.

Permanent import of vehicles.
This is an important situation wherein you are required to register the vehicle within 2 weeks after the vehicle arrives in Copenhagen. It is important that the vehicle passes an inspection and valuation by the Danish Register of Motor Vehicles. You are allowed to drive legally after you keep the receipt of the inspection in the vehicle till the registration tax is paid. Based on the valuation of the vehicle, you are required to pay the registration tax and is payable at any motor registry offices. Then you are eligible to buy the license tags. It is important to check the current information as laws are constantly changing.
Cost of shipping.
All vehicles to Denmark are evaluated before the import duties are applicable. The base calculation is done on the cost of the vehicle, freight charges and the insurance. There might be other charges that are imposed based on the Danish Ministry of Taxation. We’ll update you on the current requirements to ensure that the custom requirements are met.
Ways to ship.
There are two main ways to ship your vehicle to Copenhagen, which includes Container shipping and Roll-On/Roll-Off. When you have personal items to ship along with the vehicle, container shipping works best. But if you are only shipping a vehicle, it is important to save costs by shipping by RORO where you have to pay for the space occupied by the vehicle.
