Guide to Vehicle Transport to France & From France

Remember, if you’re planning to be in France for more than six months, it is essential that you register your vehicle with The Préfecture (the administrative headquarters in France). Ensure you know where your nearest location is so that you can register in good time.

Car shipping to France is generally duty-free, as long as VAT has been paid in the UK and the vehicle is at least 6 months old when moving to France. The vehicle must also have done at least 6000km because we conduct your car transport to France. If your car is newer than 6 months, then it is likely you’ll have to pay French VAT, unless you can prove that VAT has already been paid on the vehicle. Vehicles older than 4 years will have to undergo an MOT test before the car shipping to France, in order to ensure that the car meets French criteria.

In preparation for your motorcycle or car transport to France, we recommend you do the following:

  • Take Photographs - Taking photographs prior to transportation is good to take note of the vehicle’s condition. This will also help you check for damage after transport, but also provide evidence in the unlikely event that your car or motorbike is damaged.
  • Wash your vehicle - it may seem odd to wash your car or bike before such a long journey, but we recommend this for a number of reasons. It lessens the likelihood of damage as a result of scratches from dirt, but also allows you to take better note of its condition prior to travel.
  • MOTs & Servicing - We’d also recommend ensuring your vehicle is roadworthy prior to travel, whether you plan to drive it immediately or not. This is to ensure that in the event you have to drive it, the vehicle is completely compliant and ready to drive.
