Moving abroad and not sure if you should take your automobile and household goods with you? K International Transport is able to assist with international automobile shipping from the United States to your new home. Overseas vehicle shipping and household goods shipping to Europe and other worldwide destinations can be a daunting task. There are a number of international car transport issues our customers have dealt with when they have relocated to another country.
First, if you are shipping your car from the United States to Europe most European countries require at the time of importation that you have residence in the country. In order to import your car and household goods without paying any taxes or VAT, some European countries will require ownership of at least six (6) months prior to shipping. To find out the laws and regulations of that country you can visit the local foreign consulate or foreign chamber of commerce in the United States.
The next issue you must deal with when considering international car shipping is local car insurance. Before you can register and drive your car, your new home country may require that you fully insure the car beforehand. You should utilize a European insurance company. You should also check that your car meets the local emissions standards or if you will need to reconfigure your automobile to meet the requirements.
Planning to ship your household goods and your automobile overseas? Consider international container shipping so you can pack your household goods and car together and deal with import customs clearance only once.
Professional international shipping companies such as K International will assist you in your international move and make sure your overseas car transport goes as smoothly as possible. If planning to move abroad avoid unlicensed moving companies who may offer a cheap price in the beginning and then hit you with very expensive fees when your car or household goods arrive at the destination.
