Additionally, to validate the import as legal, the U.S Customs and Borer Protection service and the Austrian Customs Department need to vet the origin and ownership of the vehicle before it leaves/arrives at the port. We will help you obtain all the necessary documents for your import. These documents include:

Cost of Car Shipping
When you are preparing to have a car shipped, you will first want to consider how much it will cost. Generally, shipping a standard car will cost between $2500 and $4500 depending on what additional costs, taxes, and duties will be. Taxes are determined by Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance and import duties are based on the value of the vehicle, so the more luxurious the vehicle is, the higher the duty will be.

- Proof of ownership of the vehicle

If you are importing a vehicle from the United States to Austria, you will need to follow all non-European Union regulations. Your vehicle will need to pass the Austrian specifications and you may need to modify your vehicle in order to have it meet the specifications.
