BUYING A USED CAR IN GERMANY6 Replies
Hello there, I really found the information on your website very useful. I am currently on a study/research assignment here in Germany and I intend to buy a used car that I can use while here for my research assignment. However, I also intend to ship the car home to Africa after my studies in Frankfurt. But as a woman and a new comer, I really do not know how the system works here in terms of : 1. how to get a good use car at a good price (some people are of the opinion that buying off a car from a private owner is cheaper than from a car dealer) 2. secondly people have advised me to buy a car at Hamburg since it is closer to the sea port and will facilitate easy shipping of the vehicle after purchase 3. How much does shipping /exporting a used car cost? and can the shipping price be reduced if one is shipping more than one used car? 4. Secondly I would appreciate if you can put me in contact with any car dealer in Hamburg who can offer a good price for either an Audi 2007 A4 or a Mercedes Benz Could you please provide me with details on how exporting used cars work here in Germany in terms of waivers of VAT and duties?
