Reading through this section you can easily get an idea of the “mandatory expenses” needed to address the export/import of a vehicle from the States. However, it is our normal procedure to prepare specific quotations for each customer.
SHIPMENTS WITHIN THE U.S.A.
Shipment quotes – from the place where the vehicle chosen/bought to the warehouse of our carrier/port – are calculated for each specific case, always without any mark up by A&M Garage, as well as all the other mandatory expenses (like transports, duties, etc.).
Through the specialized freight company with whom we work, an indication of the costs for the ocean transport – into a shared container, preparation of vehicles, cargo, and US port fee included – to us are, for example:
HOUSTON, TX – ROTTERDAM / AMSTERDAM, NL: starting from 1,000 USD per car; NY/NJ – ROTTERDAM / AMSTERDAM, NL: starting from 800 USD per car; LOS ANGELES, CA – ROTTERDAM / AMSTERDAM, NL: starting from 1,200 USD per car; MIAMI, FL – ROTTERDAM / AMSTERDAM, NL: starting from 1,000 USD per car; Motorcycles: starting from 450 USD (each)
NOTE: The costs of all shipments (including those for parts, pallets or whole containers) are always evaluated specifically, on a case-by-case basis. At any time and independently of us, the above prices may be subject to change. A&M Garage LLC is not responsible for any sudden changes in quotations.
Normally, the vehicles are loaded in sealed containers (shared with other cars and / or motorcycles). We do not carry direct shipments to Italy anymore, because of the high costs and long transport time. We do not recommend shipping transports by RO/RO (“bridge spot”) – option to be agreed.
In the Netherlands – where, for min. 30 years old vehicles, facility on import taxes exists – our European agents and partners will take care of every aspect of the import on behalf of our clients, if it’s possible and if it’s requested, registration offer can be included. (We recommend you to visit the sections dedicated to these topics!)
INLAND TRANSPORTATION FROM HOLLAND
Every inland transportation from Holland starts from one of the two our collaborators locations, to reach directly the address supplied by our customers, anywhere in EU, by “open truck”. A standard rate starting from 0,80 Euro/Km applies except in “packaged areas”, like Italy and Switzerland, where the cost will be set according to the freight company’s quotes.
Switzerland, “flat rate” North: 600 Euro; South (Italian border): 750 Euro. Italy: “flat rate” for North, centre-North (South and centre Italy to be evaluated) – for instance Milan/North IT area: 850 Euro; Florence: 950 Euro.
Possibility of shipment by “enclosed” truck on demand.
Exact freight cost and time for delivery will be communicated and agreed upon with the customer via e-mail in each case. Costs may change from above quotes in the future.
NOTE: Once the customer has fulfilled payment for the “EU part”, we will send, by express courier: original Title or the European documents (see our dedicated section); duties paid bill; receipt of duty clearance for the nationalization of the vehicle.
