We specialise in the sale of vehicles within the EU. Each week, several vehicles are sent out to customers across the whole EU. Thanks to our extensive experience, we have collected a great deal of information regarding the sale of vehicles within the EU which we would like to share with you here.

Our processes are optimised in such a way that the sale of vehicles goes ahead in as simple and uncomplicated a way as possible.

If you wish, we would be happy to look after the entire process.

You can get in touch with us in German and English.

All vehicles have at least a 2-year warranty from the day of initial registration.

Important for you: All warranties are valid throughout the whole of the EU. If you have problems of any kind, you can see an authorised dealer in your country.

Please select whether you are a private or commercial buyer. Based on your choice, different conditions come into effect, or there are various possibilities.

Private purchase:

For a private purchase, German sales tax applies.

Further information

Commercial purchase/independent with VAT ID number.

As a commercial buyer with a valid VAT ID number, you have the possibility to buy the vehicle without sales tax (net).

Further information


Private buyers

The transaction for a private purchase is simple and uncomplicated. For a private purchase, the VAT is always paid in Germany. Your advantage: At 19%, Germany has one of the most favourable VAT rates in the EU. All excellent prices already include VAT.

For import to your country, you require the following documents which you will of course receive in full from us:

  • Approval notification parts I and II (these are the German vehicle documents)

  • COC document

  • An invoice identifying the VAT

You have the possibility of paying for the car either in cash or by bank transfer.

If you have any further questions, we would be happy to help you.

Vehicle purchase transaction

For the vehicle purchase, we offer two options:

Get an impression of the vehicle on site in our showroom. It is possible to purchase then directly on site.

Alternatively, you may purchase via email or telephone. Already half of our customers use this option. Many buyers have even rated this purchase option favourably at mobile.de and Autoscout 24.de.

For online purchases, we can advise you in great detail via telephone, this means that we can explain the condition and the history of the vehicle to you. If you finally decide to purchase the vehicle, we are happy to send you a sales order. With the sales order, a small initial payment of €1,000 is due. You may pay the rest easily once you pick it up.

Vehicle transport:

For vehicle transport, we offer two options:

  • Customs plates: With these plates you can drive the car around the world unrestricted, These plates are available with a validity of 15 or 30 days. To produce this plate, we require a copy of your identity document and a proxy form with your original signature.

The customs plates cost €199 for 15 days and €249 for 30 days. All costs including insurance, taxes and the plates are included in the price. There are no further costs to you.

  • You are also welcome to pick up the car using a forwarding agency and have it delivered. Unfortunately, we are not able to organise pick-up for you. For this, we recommend the services provided by Shiply.com. There, you will receive uncomplicated appropriate transportation quotations. Some of our customers have already had positive experiences there.

If you have any further questions, we would be happy to help you.


Commercial purchase

We would be happy to give you the opportunity to purchase the vehicle net, which means without VAT.

Due to legal regulations, after delivery, we require a confirmation from the buyer that the vehicle has arrived in your country (confirmation of arrival and/or CMR bill of freightt). Without this confirmation, net purchase is not possible.

For net purchase, we can offer you two options:

Option 1:

Upon purchase, you use the VAT as a security deposit. After delivery of the vehicle and the confirmation of arrival (see above), you will have the VAT refunded to you from us. In most cases, a permit is not necessary.

There are already many positive ratings on mobile.de and Autoscout 24 which are proof of our professional and serious transactions. Our tip: For net purchases, always ensure you are using a serious dealer. Dubious providers sometimes do not return your deposit. We are happy to produce all documents necessary for confirmation (confirmation of arrival). As soon as the vehicle has arrived, you only have to sign and stamp the confirmation. Then, return the confirmation to us with your bank details and we will return your VAT immediately (provided we have all necessary documents with all necessary signatures)

Option 2:

You pay a reduced deposit of €1,000. In return, the vehicle documents remain with us until we have received the corresponding confirmation. Only then will we return the deposit (minus a processing fee of €50 for sending the vehicle documents by express post) and send your documents to you. This arrangement is only accepted if your company is at least three years old and has its own homepage.

Which documents do we require from you?

  • Trade register excerpt and/or business registration

  • A copy of the managing director’s/owner’s identity document

  • Your VAT ID

  • The address of your website, if applicable.

Please send these documents to export@autozentrum-schmitz.de.

As soon as we have checked your documents, we will send you a contract of sale which must be signed by you. Please be aware that all documents may only be signed by the company owner/managing director. If there are several authorised persons, all documents must always be signed by the same person.
