Car importer in the USA: opt for peace of mind!

To find the American car you want, the best way is to scour the various online classified ad sites. If you are vigilant to avoid scams, you will find what you are looking for in just a few clicks. But transporting your new vehicle to Europe is a different story! You are bound to need the help of a car importer in the USA. If you don’t know where to turn, follow the guide. 

You dreamed of it, you did it! You’ve finally bought the American car you’ve been obsessed with since you were a kid. Now all you have to do is find the best way to import it to Europe. And for that, you will necessarily need the help of a specialized company. Indeed, unless you are an expert in the field, importing an American car to Europe is a real headache. In addition to all the costs to be taken into account (transport, customs duties, homologation procedures), you will have to face a whole host of logistical and administrative issues. This is why we strongly advise you to use a car importer in the USA, such as Easy Import Auto whose headquarters are located in Florida.

Keys to Avoiding Fraudulent Importers

The U.S. car market is a veritable gold mine for enthusiasts. There are an infinite number of models that are as spectacular as they are affordable. But you have to be careful, because you can very quickly find yourself confronted with scammers. A large number of companies that specialize in importing vehicles to Europe are really just internet storefronts baiting their customers with incredible selections of vehicles at rock-bottom prices. But in reality, most of the time, it’s just beautiful facades created by ghost companies. To avoid stumbling upon this type of business, make sure that the importer you have identified has a physical address, as well as a working phone number. On top of that, try to collect all the information you can about the company, to avoid any unpleasant surprises. If you can’t find anything online that can prove the importer’s honesty, that’s a bad sign. We advise you to move on.

Stumbling upon a fraudulent importer can lead to a whole bunch of problems, each thorny one more than the last. Some do not hesitate to disguise rust, or to provide false expert reports that are supposed to prove the good condition of a vehicle. Others go even further by exporting heavily damaged cars that they have refurbished without notifying the buyer. The risk is great, because some of these vehicles will never be able to be registered in Europe… And even if these hidden defects are not discovered, you risk putting your physical integrity at stake by getting behind the wheel of this type of car!

We’ve identified three clues that should definitely put you on alert when browsing automotive classifieds sites:

  • The seller cannot be reached on the phone : for a purchase of several thousand euros, it is normal to want to speak in person with the seller. If you can’t do it despite your insistence, it’s suspicious.
  • Extremely low rate: without wanting to spoil your joy, if the deal seems too good to be true, it’s probably a scam or a way to bait you into offering you another model. In any case, beware.
  • Import fees included in the price of the car: this kind of maneuver has no other purpose than to make the transaction as opaque as possible, which is never a good sign. Be careful if you are offered this type of service.

How to choose a car importer in the USA?

If you don’t do very well in English, we strongly advise you to use a French-speaking importer. But make sure that they are based in the United States, otherwise they will have no way to check the condition of your vehicle before it is transported to Europe. If you choose to use Easy Import Auto, the company will be able to dispatch its experts to the site before the purchase of the vehicle, to ensure that it is perfectly compliant with the advertisement. They will also be able to negotiate with the seller on your behalf, and even proceed with the payment to save you additional fees.

For peace of mind, we advise you to opt for an importer who has the resources to carry out the entire import process in-house. This is because some companies outsource most, if not all, of their business. In this case, even if they are acting in good faith, they will not be able to control all the steps of the import, which can be detrimental. That’s why Easy Import Auto has chosen not to outsource anything, in order to keep control of each step of the import, from the seller’s garage to your doorstep.

Another very important criterion to consider when choosing a car importer in the USA is the absence of hidden fees. Indeed, the buyer must be able to demand total transparency from the importer, in order to know from the outset the amount he will have to pay to make his dream come true. Easy Import Auto customers benefit from fully transparent pricing right from the start, with the guarantee of buying a car at the US market price with complete peace of mind.

If you think you’ve found the perfect importer, we recommend one last check: take a look at the reviews left by their customers. Be careful, though, as some companies resort to fake comments and reviews. If you have any doubts, we advise you to go to specialized forums to read or ask for feedback from real customers. When you’re willing to shell out thousands of dollars to make a dream come true, you can never be too careful!
