5. Return Home

Meet your BMW at your home.  At the conclusion of your trip, drop your car off at one of twelve sites located within the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Austria or Switzerland.

The cost of transportation, customs clearance and duty and marine insurance are all included in the purchase price of all vehicles sold through the European Delivery program.  Every vehicle departs from Bremerhaven, Germany and will take approximately 6-8 weeks to the East coast and 8-10 weeks to the West Coast from drop off date to arrive at your local BMW center for final delivery. Be aware that dropping your car at any other location than Germany will extend arrival time.  Remove all personal items and accessories (such as the first aid kit and hazard warning sign) upon drop off. These items are not covered by insurance since only the spare tire, jack, and tools are allowed to be shipped with the car. It is recommended that the exterior of your vehicle is cleaned before you initiate shipment to the U.S. The Department of Agriculture requires vehicles entering the U. S. to be clean so you may want to visit a car wash prior to dropping off your car, especially if you have traveled long distances in Europe.

Your Client Advisor will notify you of your vehicle's arrival in the United States.

Please note that all European Delivery vehicles must be cleared by U.S. Customs and the Department of Agriculture and are subject to Customs exams upon arrival into the U.S. U.S. Customs has the right to inspect all vehicles which are imported into the U.S. at their discretion. You should be aware that release of the vehicle may be delayed if it is selected for exam by U.S. Customs. BMWNA, as well as our contracted broker, monitor this activity daily and communicate with U.S. Customs where necessary in an effort to expedite exams and the release of the vehicles. BMWNA does not recommend that our customers contact U.S. Customs directly and making correspondence with the agency will not speed up the release of your vehicle.

Upon U.S. Customs clearance, your vehicle will be processed at our Vehicle Processing Center. Please keep in mind that if you noted any damage on the condition report and your vehicle requires repair, it may delay the re-delivery of your vehicle. BMW will make every effort to have your vehicle re-delivered within the time lines noted above.

If you requested more than 2 months (3, 4 or 5 months) of insurance, you are required to drop off your vehicle at any of the German drop off locations. European Customs regulations mandate that the exportation process must start in the country of vehicle delivery, in your case Germany.

All drop-off locations require 4 days advance notice to schedule a drop off appointment either by phone or email. Drop off locations are open Monday to Friday only. All locations are closed on Saturdays (with the exception in Munich) Sundays, German holidays and scheduled holidays. If you are planning to drop off outside of Germany, please check that country's tourist website for their specific holidays.
