How to Import a Car from Denmark
With our guidance on how to import a car from Denmark, you should be able to navigate your shipment with ease. The first place to start is to see if your car is eligible to ship from Denmark to the US.
Denmark Vehicle Import Restrictions
When shipping a car from Denmark, the eligibility of the vehicle must be checked before beginning. There are strict rules for importing cars into the country and not all vehicles can enter. Due to this, making sure your car can enter before you ship is very important. Returning US vehicles or ones already built to US specifications enter without issue. Other than that they need to have special exemption. Luckily one of the easiest ones is if the car is over 25 years old which falls under a classic car exemption.
Use our Auto Import Tool to see if your car can enter the US.

Exporting a Car from Denmark
The import process starts with exporting the car from Denmark. The car export can be started from anywhere in the country. Our network also allows us to offer a variety of shipping options and services to fit your budget and time frame.
- RoRo shipping consists of rolling the car onto the ship in Denmark, then rolling the car off of the ship in the states. This is the cheaper of the two shipping options. In this case, the vehicle will be open to the elements, must be operable, and can only have total loss insurance.
- With individual container shipping, the process begins with loading the car in a container. In contrast to RoRo, the container keeps the vehicle further protected during the voyage. Furthermore, full coverage insurance and adding goods inside becomes an option as well.
Export Ports in Denmark
The main ports to ship cars in Denmark are Aarhus and Copenhagen. Once the vehicle is ready, we can organize the car transport to these ports. However, you can also organize your own transport to the nearest port if preferred. After the car is loaded onto the shipping vessel, it is ready to ship from Denmark to the USA.
