We collect your vehicle from your dealer, regardless of it's location. And on the way to our warehouse !
We transport it by adapting the transport methods, according to the size of the vehicle, its ability to drive, etc

We transport your vehicle to an enclosed and secured warehouse where it will wait to be put in a container while our local correspondent takes care of the export formalities.
Depending on the size and your choice, the vehicle can be transported alone in a dedicated container, in a shared container, on a ro-ro ship (RoRo = Roll-On, Roll-Off), by air, etc.

The formalities completed, the vehicle is loaded alone or grouped in a sealed container before being towed to the port terminal of the loading port. The shipping conditions are met so that your vehicle does not suffer any damage, a detailed receiving report is established during the pick-up with pictures being taken.

The container is then loaded onto a ship before arriving at the port of Le Havre. The maritime transit time depends in particular on the port of departure (NY, Savannah, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, SF/Oakland, Vancouver, Montreal, Dubai ... any other port in the world on request).

The vehicle can also be shipped by air. 

When the container arrives to Le Havre, we take care of the next steps to recover it from the port. The container is then trucked to our warehouse, where it will be stripped.
The vehicle will be secured in an enclosed warehouse to allow us to clear it through customs and issue the 846A necessary for its further French registration.

When the vehicle is in our warehouse, we undertake the administrative formalities allowing you to use your vehicle:
• Customs clearance
• Homologation
• Temporary Registration supply + corresponding WW plates
• Final French Registration + plates

When the vehicle meets all the regulatory requirements, it can then be delivered to your home.
