Ship Car To Munich

Car Shipping Munich

Munich has been called the world’s best place to live. It’s the epicenter for publishing and many other business ventures around the globe today. When you move to Munich you realize quickly that having your own car to drive will be a valuable time and money saver. Hiring a car can be very costly after a while. The good thing about importing your car to Munich is that Munich is a fairly easy State to import to in Germany. Once you hire the auto transport company to transport your car internationally you will need to provide them with necessary documents, arrange for pick-up and delivery to the major shipping port nearest your location that ships to Munich, and make sure your car has been modified to be able to drive on the roadways in Munich. Cars in Germany have to pass a technical inspection and if you have an American car, you will most likely need to modify your headlights, brakes, emissions, and tires. Your transport agent will be able to give you in-depth details on what types of modifications you may need depending on the type of car you own.

Customs Clearance and Driving in Munich

When your car is being checked by the Customs agent in Munich, they will complete a full inspection of the car to ensure that it is roadworthy. They will also require you to pay taxes and import duties on the car at the time of the customs check. You are able to waive the taxes and duties if you can prove the following:

  • The car is registered in your name
  • You plan on residing in Germany as a resident
  • You have lived outside of the EU for the last year
  • You have owned the car for the last 6 months
  • You agree to either export the car back to the U.S. or sell it in Germany prior to leaving the country

Once your car has been cleared through customs you will have six months to register it in Munich and obtain a German Driver’s License. If you will not be in Germany longer than one year, you will be given permission to drive your car while in Munich for up to 12 months. You must have a registration document that has a German translation attached to it and must carry that in your car when you are driving. If you will be in Germany for more than a year, you will be required to register your car at the local Kfz-Zulassungsstelle and your car must pass a technical inspection. Once you are driving in Munich, be aware that the German Autobahn has much higher speed limits than what you may be used to in the U.S. Drive with caution and don’t drive slow as to not cause an auto accident. In more congested areas of the Autobahn, traffic speeds do slow down due to the posted limits. For more information on importing your car to Munich, you can contact the German Missions office in Washington, DC.

Methods of Shipping and Cost

There are two ways that you can ship your car internationally to Munich by sea. You can use RoRo Shipping, which is the preferred way to ship a car overseas and has been used worldwide for many decades. It’s the most efficient and quickest way to transport a car overseas. Your car is driven onto the ship at the U.S. port and secured into place and then simply driven off the ship when it reaches the entry port for Munich. You’ll need to clear all personal belongings out of the car when using RoRo to transport the car. You can also utilize a container in either a 20 or 40-foot size and go with Container Shipping. With a container, you’ll be able to ship your car as well as any personal items you may need to ship along with it. Your agent will walk you through the different types of shipping available for your shipping needs. The agent will also provide you with an itemized quote showing the total cost of shipping and what you will need to pay prior to as well as after the car is transported to Munich. If you need someone to pick your car up and deliver it, the agent will help you take care of that as well. If you would like more information on exportation laws in the United States, you can contact the U.S. Customs office and they can direct you to the information you may need.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

Luis Rodriguez
You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
