The sixth largest city in Denmark, Randers is situated at the Jutland peninsula in the Central Demark Region. It is about 140 miles from Copenhagen. Whether you are returning citizen, student or keen on working here, the fact is that having your own transportation can help you avoid language barriers and currency conversions, which are a part of public transportation.
You have two options when importing your car to Denmark which are temporary import and permanently importing the vehicle. However, you need more information and assistance from A1 Auto Transport Company to ensure that the move is seamless and hassle-free. That is because we have over two decades of experience in the international auto shipping industry and have shipped innumerable vehicles to Europe, including Denmark.
You have the option of importing the vehicle for a short period on a temporary permit. This does not require you to pay any import duties as the vehicle will go back to USA within the said duration. Other than that you have the choice of importing the vehicle permanently. This is liable to be more expensive as you have to pay all of the taxes and duties, get the vehicle registered in Randers and buy the license plates.
For getting the temporary permit, you will need to fill out the temporary permit form. This is applicable if you are sure you only need the vehicle for a short time. This permit is given for a maximum of 185 days for non-Danish individuals. You are required to submit these documents:
- Copy of work visa/residence permit.
- Vehicle registration documents.
- Receipt of DKK 400 fee.
- Car owner’s CPR number.
However, permanent import is lot more common yet complex as there are various stages that have to be covered. It is important to know that you have to get your vehicle registered with the Danish Register of Motor Vehicles within 2 weeks of the import. The taxes are decided on the basis of the inspection and evaluation of the car’s value though shipping costs are considered. The vehicle has to undergo an extensive inspection for registration by the approved Danish vehicle inspection center. The receipt that you receive will be like a temporary registration allowing you to drive till the whole process has been completed. After the complete registration fee has been paid, you are eligible to buy the license plates in Denmark.
It is essential that you get the latest information of the current laws and changes in the rules before you export the vehicle from USA. You have the option of choosing RORO and Container shipping to transport the vehicle to Randers. Talk with A1 Auto Transport service to get further details.
