Important paperwork.

To validate and verify the import to France, to start with the U. S Customs have to be notified about the impending procedure. The documents that you will need to provide include:

  • Driving license.
  • Lien-free title deed.
  • Registration documents.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Social security number.

One of our business representatives will give you a free quote so that you can estimate the cost of transporting the vehicle from U.S to Le Havre in France. There are various aspects that have to be considered which includes the method of shipment that you choose. They will inform you about the extra procedures or documents that will be needed.

Vehicle regulations in France.

Although the vehicle regulations are not as strict as those in other parts of the country, there are plenty of regulations to adhere to. Your vehicle needs to adhere to the French Customs procedures which have to be followed to ensure no delays. If the vehicle adheres to the inspections and EU emission control, there is no problem but in case there are modifications needed, you need to get them done before the vehicle is shipped.

You need to pay a VAT of 19.5% and have to provide the French Customs with commercial invoice and registration documents. The total amount of tax that you will pay will depend upon the valuation of the vehicle, as assessed during the inspection. After the vehicle has been cleared by the French Customs department, you are required to get the registration done and have French license tags within 4 months of the French vehicle registration.

Shipping costs.

As it is a large port, shipping is comparatively easy. However, you have two options of freight ship the vehicle, which includes RORO and Enclosed container shipping.

Roll-on/Roll-Off or RORO is the cheapest way to move your vehicle to France. The vehicle is driven on the ship’s deck, harnessed in the bay and then driven down the ramp at Le Havre. Your vehicle has to be empty of all personal items, and devoid of air conditioning gas.

Container shipping is another option, if you need to ship your vehicle and personal items together, this is the best option. In case you have a luxury vehicle, this works better because protection is higher. All of the goods and vehicle are loaded within the 20 feet or 40 feet container, and then sealed.

The total cost of the shipping will depend upon the weight of the cargo, shipping and freight charges, and the fees of shipping agents. To get further details about the process and latest updates on law, contact the Embassy of France.
