Your client should be made aware that obtaining a free import permit is a time consuming matter. Unfortunately, your client will have to allow at least 2 – 6 weeks, from date of handing over above mentioned document to customs, to have the free import permit issued.
In order to import cars / motorcycles free of any duties / taxes into The Netherlands it should be part of a household shipment and should have been owned and used for at least six months prior to actual shipping out. The owner should also have stayed outside The Netherlands for at least one year.
Dutch customs also requires the full and complete chassis number of car / motorcycle to be hammered on framework of car / motorcycle. A small metal plate just beneath the win screen (like US cars are having) will not be authorized. In case no chassis number has been hammered in at all, we can have it done at additional charges.
