In the early 20th century, Belgium was a leader in the automotive industry. Now many people want to import cars from Belgium because of the rarity of their classic vehicles. Moreover, almost all of the of the Belgium car manufacturers from this time period are no longer operating. This makes Belgium classic cars some of the rarest in the world.

How to Import a Car from Belgium
The process for how to import a car from Belgium can seem confusing to first time shippers. However with our guidance, importing cars can actually be pretty straightforward.
Eligibility for Import from Belgium
Belgium import cars need to be eligible for entry into the US. A returning US vehicle or a car built to US standards will pass, otherwise it needs to meet other criteria. In particular, if you are importing a Belgium classic car (over 25 years old) then it does not have to conform to regular standards.

Shipping from Belgium to the US
When exporting a car from Belgium, Schumacher offers two main shipping methods. Our network also gives us the ability to transport from all over Belgium to anywhere in the US.
- RoRo Shipping: Roll on Roll of shipping from Belgium starts with the car being rolled on in Belgium then rolled off in the USA. These cars are open on the ship and must be operational in order to move it on.
- Container Shipping: Unlike RoRo, container shipping has the vehicle loaded inside a container before moving onto the ship.
