Importing From Holland

Discussion in 'Buying a VW Camper' started by Gazaloid, Sep 10, 2014.

  1. So after years of hand wringing, looking and working out exactly what we wanted, we've finally committed and bought our first bus. I'm bricking it - nervous and excited in equal measure!!!!

    Our next obstacle is getting the bus into the UK from Holland. I'm sure a lot of you have been down this route and although I've searched the site, I was wondering if anyone has any advice they can offer on:

    - import considerations - the bus has already been formally imported into the EU and the duty paid but he's still on US plates
    - shipping - couple of options here - either I fly over and drive back or we get it shipped to the UK (and preferably the north). Any gotchas?

    He's not perfect (can't believe I'm already referring to it as a "he") but that's part of the fun (hmm, really?).

    I have to say that it probably wouldn't have been as straightforward without the raft of advice I've read on here, so a big thanks to the forum.

  2. Okay so I've taken a good look at this now and rather than type it all out here, if anyone needs any info on importing from within the EU, gimme a shout and I'll hopefully be able to point you in the right direction.
