Importing a classic car

Do you want to import a classic? Then a world is opening up for you. Importing a car can be a complicated process. Regulations are sometimes complex and vary from country to country. We will be happy to explain how it works, so that you know where you stand and how we can help you.
Importing classic cars older than 30 years to the Netherlands and Belgium is fiscally very attractive because you do not pay import duties. An additional advantage is that we have warehouses in Belgium and the Netherlands, so you pay 9% VAT in the Netherlands and only 6% VAT in Belgium, at no extra cost. This allows us to offer very competitive rates for the import of your classic car.

Our services

We can take the import of a classic car completely out of your hands. We can pick up the car in almost any destination in the world. We then ensure that it is taken to the right port and shipped safely and quickly to the country of destination. If desired, the car will be delivered to your home. Have you already arranged transport to the port yourself? No problem for us. We always look at how we can best help you with your transport. Our transport specialists are at your service. So that in all cases, you can look forward to the moment your classic car is delivered without worry.


When importing a car, in addition to transport costs, you have to take destination costs into account.  These include import duties, taxes, unloading and delivery costs. These costs differ per country and per vehicle. Thanks to our years of experience in importing and exporting cars and other goods, our knowledge of regulations and our international partner network, we can guarantee competitive rates.

Additional services

If you make use of our services, we will do everything we can to get your vehicle to the desired location safely and quickly. However, it may still be desirable to insure your valuable goods. Or you may prefer transporting your car by air freight. Air freight is generally faster than shipping a car. Our transport specialists can advise you on this.
