Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • For most vehicles, the cost of shipping to Denmark from the U.S. comes to roughly $2,000 to $4,400.
  • Because of its proximity to Western Europe, Denmark and other Scandinavian countries are fairly popular delivery routes that run frequently.

There are two different routes you can take if you would like to import your vehicle into Denmark.  Both of these options require a little research and, of course, the assistance of a reputable auto transport company.

  • The first option is to apply for permission to drive the vehicle in Denmark temporarily without paying any registration fees.
  • The second option is to permanently import the vehicle into Denmark and complete all steps to have it properly registered.
