Ship Car To Dusseldorf
πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ Germany, (DE)

Capital of the North Rhine-Westphalia, Dusseldorf is the seventh largest city in Germany. It is the financial and international trade center while most of the trade and fashion fairs are held here.

Holding a prominent place in Germany and EU, the city hosts dozen of DA companies and many Fortune 500 companies have their offices here.

With good bilateral relations, it is simple to import your vehicle from USA to Germany. However, it will take filling out forms, getting the permits and scheduling freight shipping of the vehicle. Additionally, you might need assistance with the customs authorities and that is why A1 Auto Transport service can help you at every step. We have all information about the documentation to let you know what is needed and it is essential to be aware of the fact that if you have an USA made vehicle to import to Germany, you will be required to get modifications done to the headlights, emission, brakes and tires before your vehicle is shipped out to Dusseldorf.

Vehicle import rules and regulations.

Though it is easier to import to Germany due to similar regulations, there are plenty of import duties and taxes to pay and clear before you are authorized to legally drive it in the city. You need to pay 10% as standard import duty with over 20% as VAT. In case you are importing a motorcycle, the duty is 7% to 8%. Import duties are based on the price of the vehicle, insurance and freight charges. If you are looking for a short term import for traveling through Germany or are in Dusseldorf for less than 1 year, temporary import permits can be availed from Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) for a refundable deposit.

At A1 Auto Transport Company, we have shipped plenty of vehicles to Germany and assist you through the processes. There are other specifications that you have to cater to including having orange vests, first-aid box, warning sticker and fire extinguisher in the car. The vehicle is inspected for it before the clearances are given. There is other consideration which you might like to discuss with the shipping agent before the vehicle is exported from USA.

Tax exemption on import.

There is a provision for tax exemption when you import the vehicle. However, you need to be a returning citizen or want to settle down in Germany after renouncing your U.S citizenship. But you need to be a non-EU citizen who has lived broad for at least 12 months. Additionally you should have owned it for at least six months in your own name before you are importing it. You are eligible to use your U.S issued driving license for the first six months but you need to get the local driving license issued after that.

Documents needed for import.

Most imports require extensive documentation and you will be required to submit a set 72 hours in advance with the U.S Customs and another set with the German Customs Administration before the vehicle reaches the port in Germany. Some of the documents are:

  • Lien-free vehicle title.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Work visa/residence permit.
  • Proof of ownership.

Before you start driving your vehicle on the roads in Dusseldorf, it is important that you are conversant with the driving and traffic rules in Germany.Β  Other than that you need to pick and select the method of shipping to Dusseldorf. As this is going to affect the price, you have the option of choosing the cheaper shipping way of Roll-on/Roll-Off or the more expensive method of container shipping. Discuss it in detail with A1 Auto Transport service before you finalize the shipping method.

Satisfied Customers

“Shipping our CRV using A1 Auto Transport went great. They moved it to North Dakota within the promised 5 days despite it being the weekend. We did find a couple companies with slightly cheaper quotes online, but their reviews were really bad and felt pretty fishy. We decided to pay a little more and be safe. Since we had to ship a small SUV, the price was bound to be a bit higher anyway. Joe contacted us many time over text and kept us posted on the progress. We got our car back with no problems. It arrived in North Dakota on an open truck without so much as a scratch. Next time I need to ship something, I’ll definitely call again!”

“I had a great time transporting my car to California thanks A1 Auto Transport. Joe’s quote was reasonable and his reasoning and explanations were spot on. He couldn’t make it to the pickup, but he did call to make sure things were ok. The driver inspected my car, and I appreciated his professionalism. While it was on its way, Joe regularly sent me updates on its location through text. He estimated it would arrive in 5-6 days, and it was so. I was also given the contact information of my driver, so I could call both him and Joe if I ever felt the need to. My car got to Sacramento, California on the 5th day, and it was great to see it was well. There wasn’t any damage done to it during transit. This fact, Joe’s updates, and the fact that they met their deadline makes me recommend A1 Auto Transport as one of the best auto transport companies out there. It’s the 3rd company I’ve used to move a vehicle, and it will likely also be the 4th.”

“I had to get my daughter’s new Honda to South Dakota, so she wouldn’t have to drive it herself. I trust her driving skills, but not out of the city. I’m glad Joe was available to help. He promised to handle it with the utmost care and at a good price. The very next day, a truck arrived to take it. I could finally rest easy. By the time my daughter knew what was going on, it was already on its way. Thanks Joe! A1 Auto Transport is a truly reliable company. I’ll call again if I ever need to.”

“I shipped my Civic from to South Dakota using A1 Auto Transport. Stories of people losing their cars in transit or having to wait weeks for them when using other companies, made me a bit weary. But fortunately, my experience with A1 was the exact opposite. My car arrived 5 days after its departure, even faster than me. The process felt a bit informal when I got updated on the transport’s status via text message. I was a bit stressed, but Joe’s reassurances made it bearable. I found another company with slightly lower prices, but they just didn’t seem trustworthy, so I chose A1. I met the driver before the shipment, which was also reassuring. Somehow, they managed to keep my Civic for 3 days until I got to South Dakota to pick it up. I’m quite happy with my choice and I’ll give them a call when I go back home.”

“Joe really came through to get my car shipped. A1 Auto Transport is a transport company with a very good reputation. They answered every question I had and would always give a speedy reply to my texts or calls. I first sent them an email and their reply to it was fast also. On 04/12, the truck arrived to take my car, and it was estimated it would arrive at my new address in Texas a week later. However, it arrived 2 days early, on 04/17. There were a few misunderstandings due to its early arrival, but we thankfully got through them. My car arrived in great shape, no scratches or bumps. Joe took his time to make sure I was informed and ready to receive it.”
