A majority of cars in the Netherlands are imports because limited cars are produced domestically. This situation created a large center for cars in Holland from all over the world. Since there are strict regulations from the Netherlands Vehicle Authority (RDW), cars stay in improved condition over the years. Many people want to import classic cars like these into the states. No matter what the reason is, SCL is the best company to import a car from the Netherlands to the US.

How to Import a Car from the Netherlands
At first glance the import process could seem confusing. Some of this confusion stems from the many rules and regulations by different organizations. As a result, people think that this makes the process difficult to navigate. However with a full service shipping company like Schumacher, this process can actually be straightforward.
US Import Permission for Car from Netherlands
Prior to beginning your shipment, check if the car is eligible for importing from the Netherlands. If your car is a returning US vehicle then it passes, otherwise there are other criteria in order to pass. One of the most popular criteria is the classical exemption when the vehicle is over 25 years old. In this case, the vehicle does not need modification and can enter the country easily.

Shipping from the Netherlands to the US
SCL can easily complete your import whether you are shipping a car from Rotterdam, Amsterdam, or any other city in the Netherlands. We use two different shipping methods when importing cars from the Netherlands.
- For container shipping, we load cars into an enclosed container before shipping out. Multiple cars can be loaded into one container depending on the dimensions. We offer both 20 and 40 foot containers for a variety of shipping configurations.
Roll-on Roll-off Shipping (RoRo)
- For RoRo shipping, we roll cars onto the ship in Holland then roll them off in the USA. The car must be operable to be able to roll on to the vessel.
Most SCL customers choose to ship cars from Holland with container shipping. The benefits are that cars are more protected during transit and they can take insurance on the shipment as well. In essence, containers provide peace of mind when shipping valuable Dutch imports such as a car.
There are five warehouse locations to choose from when importing a car from the Netherlands. However, we also have the ability to deliver to any destination in the US once it arrives. This means we can accommodate your import no matter where you live in the United States. After that, the vehicle is yours and the import from the Netherlands was completed successfully.
