Import a Car from the Netherlands to the USA

Import Car from Netherlands

A majority of cars in the Netherlands are imports because limited cars are produced domestically. This situation formed 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 back into the states. No matter what the reason is, SCL is the best company to import a car from the Netherlands to the US.

Schumacher Cargo Logistics has over 40 years of experience shipping cars to and from the Netherlands. Additionally, our experience has built a network where we can import a car from anywhere in the country. With SCL, you can be confident that your transport is in good hands.

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.

Shipping Methods:

Container Shipping

  • For container shipping, we load cars into an enclosed container before shipping out. Up to three cars can be loaded into one container depending on the dimensions.

Roll-on Roll-off Shipping (RoRo)

  • For RoRo shipping, we roll cars onto the ship then roll them off at the destination. The car must be operable for this service.

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.

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.
