Crossing the border without a worry
Importing a car in France can be complicated. It requires understanding a bulk of necessary vehicle paperwork and then supplying it in the correct order to the relevant parties. Whilst everyone can import a car, it’s important to understand which path to take depending on the circumstances in which the car is imported.
