Cost of transporting a car from USA to France: the detailed invoice

If you are looking to treat yourself to a beautiful American one, the best solution is to import it from the United States. Not only is the offer incomparably rich, but the prices on the other side of the Atlantic are particularly interesting. And contrary to popular belief, the cost of transporting a USA-France car is anything but astronomical… To find out the detailed invoice, follow the guide!

You only have to browse the classifieds sites to see that the prices of cars sold in the United States defy all competition. But if you want to import a vehicle, do not forget that you will have to add to the invoice the cost of transporting a USA-France car to know its real cost price. To help you estimate the object of all your desires, here are some examples.

How much does it cost to transport a classic car?

Cars that are more than 30 years old have undeniable advantages when importing. Indeed, they are only taxed at 5.5% in terms of VAT and they are exempt from customs duties.

To give you an idea of the cost of transporting a classic car from the USA to France, let’s take the example of importing a 1966 Ford Mustang bought for 12,096 euros.

Here’s the quote you’d get through Easy Import Auto:

  • Management fees, transaction with the seller, vehicle verification: 350 euros
  • Cost of repatriation by truck to the Port of Miami: 998 euros
  • Sea transport by container: €1,390
  • Cost of marine insurance (3.02% of the purchase price): 365 euros
  • Provision of the vehicle at the port of Le Havre: 400 euros
  • Customs file: 90 euros
  • Import tax (5.5% VAT): 665 euros
  • File from the French Federation of Vintage Vehicles (FFVE) for registration: 110 euros

TOTAL : 16 364 euros

Easy Import Auto offers optional services for a hassle-free purchase:

  • Detailed inspection of the vehicle by experts: 600 euros
  • Home delivery of the car: €0.90 per kilometre from the port of Le Havre

Note that the cost of repatriating the vehicle to the Port of Miami depends on the distance to be covered by truck. The farther away it is from Florida, the higher the price. That’s why Easy Import Auto can help you find the model of your dreams as close as possible to Miami, to help you save on the bill.

How much does it cost to transport a modern vehicle?

For vehicles less than 30 years old, 20% VAT applies. To this must be added the customs duties which amount to 10% of the price of the car.
