Ship Your Car to Norway

For the last 10 years, we have worked with local and international customers to ship their vehicles from the United States to Norway. Our shipping process is extremely simple. You get an instant online quote using our car shipping calculator below, and then you fill out our online shipping form. Then we begin to make arrangements to collect the vehicle and submit documentation to US customs for export. Once the cars arrive at one of our loading facilities in California, New York, or Florida, we begin to load the vehicle into a container. The cheapest port for shipping cars to Norway are currently Oslo and Fredrikstad. Prices range from $1,200 to $4,950 per vehicle.

Car Shipping Cost to Norway

Shipping a car from the USA to Norway costs around $1,200 to $4,950 in a container. The container is shipped from either New York, California, or Florida and arrives in the port of Oslo or Fredrikstad. It takes 28 days from departure in New York to arrive in Norway, and 49 days from California.


When shipping anything overseas, Cargo Damage Protection is always an option. It is calculated based on the vehicle's value. 

Car Import Tax in Norway

The current import tax on vehicles imported to Norway is 25% VAT based on the customs value which is calculated as vehicle purchase cost + shipping. If you are importing any fully electric vehicle you are exempt from paying import VAT. 

Right now, fully electric vehicles are exempt from paying any import duties. The same rule applies to the so-called veteran cars which are 20 years or older. Cars between 10 and 20 years of age get a discount of 90% on import duties. For younger vehicles, they depend on the engine, weight, and more factors.

There are no taxes or duties due if you meet the following conditions when importing a car to Norway:

  • Temporary car import
  • The car will keep its US plates and registration
  • You are importing as a non-Norwegian resident, who will use the car for a short period as a tourist

Documents Required for Export

Shipping your car from the United States requires the clearance of US customs. This step requires a few documents to be submitted to prove to the US government that you own the car. Here are the documents required:

  • Bill of Sale for the vehicle

  • Original Vehicle Title - if it currently has a lien on it, you must also provide a lien release letter

  • Power of Attorney form

  • Completed online shipping form

  • Copy of Passport (if you are an international citizen without a US passport)

  • Copy of EIN letter if you are a US citizen

Contact us if you have any questions about the documents required to ship your car overseas to Georgia.

Shipping Options


By using a container for shipping, we can load anywhere from 1 to 6 cars (depending on size), the vehicles can either run and drive or be project cars. We offer consolidation when shipping to the port, saving you money by shipping your vehicles along with other cars in the same container. When shipping high-value vehicles, we can load them in their own dedicated 20ft or 40ft containers.


Shipping via Roll-on/Roll-off is another option when shipping cars overseas. However, unlike containerized car shipping, you cannot ship anything inside of your vehicle, and the car is in run-and-drive condition to be able to drive on and off the ship. The ports which support RoRo vary widely, and so do the rates.


If you require your vehicle overseas as quickly as possible, we recommend shipping the car via Air-Freight service. Compared to lengthy shipping times and possible port delays when shipping in a container or via RoRo, shipping your car by Air is the quickest shipping option. Transit time is estimated at around 3 to 10 days, depending on the documentation and customs requirements.


Motorcycle Shipping Overseas
How Motorcycles Are Shipped Overseas

Motorcycles are a popular import from the US, and most customers use a container. You can fit up to 8 motorcycles in a 20ft container and up to 16 in a 40ft container. They are securely strapped and braced. This makes it the perfect solution for wholesale buyers and dealers. Use the shipping calculator on this page to get a quote, or contact us.

Another option is shipping your motorcycle via air freight to any international airport. It's a more expensive option, and it requires a custom crate to be built around the bike. However, air freight will minimize transit time.
