Moving to Germany - is the area you are moving to one that you and your family are going to enjoy living in?

When moving your vehicle from the UK to your new home in Europe, it is often easiest to drive it to your destination. For stays of longer than six months, you will need to register the vehicle with the relevant authorities in order to legally import it. We have put together guides below for importing your car to France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. These contain specific information on the rules pertaining to each country. For information on moving your vehicles to other European destinations please contact the Hamiltons European removals department.

What does the vehicle shipping quotation include?

Hamiltons’ vehicle shipping quotations are fully inclusive and cover all aspects of the move from your current home to the destination port. They include:
  • Receiving the vehicle at our depot or loading it at your home if the container is being packed there.
  • Completion of a Pre-Shipment Condition Report, for standard liability purposes.
  • Loading and securing your vehicle in the container.
  • Container haulage to the port of departure.
  • Export customs formalities.
  • UK and destination port charges.

When should vehicle removals be arranged - how far in advance of the move?

In general, we require two weeks notice in order to satisfy the formalities required in moving a vehicle overseas. We normally like to provide all the necessary documentation to our destination agents prior to the loading of the container to ensure that there will be no issues when the shipment arrives. Please contact one of our European coordinators to discuss your move in more detail:
