Vehicle export within EU/EEA

Whether a vehicle or machine sold at kvdpro.com can be exported from Sweden is stated in the object description on kvdpro.com. If the vehicle can be exported, different rules are applicable depending on the country to which you want to export it and whether you are exporting the vehicle as a company or a private individual. For all export purchases of vehicles with Swedish registration, the registration plates are removed. This means that the vehicle must be transported from Kvdpro’s plants with a forwarder or equipped with temporary registration plates.

We only sell to countries within the EU/EEA.

Deposit waiver

The deposit may be waived if, at the time of payment, the purchaser presents a signed Forwarder's Certificate, issued by a reputable freight forwarder, guaranteeing that the item is transported out of the country.

The Forwarder's Certificate must specify the party that has ordered the shipment, collection address, delivery address, labelling (chassis number of a registered vehicle), the forwarder's VAT number and the forwarder's signature.
