First, find and purchase a vehicle in Germany with or without CarTurf. We can guide you through the process, help with the sales agreement, and finalize the sale, if our assistance is required.

Second, get your vehicle insured. CarTurf uses a partner insurance company to insure vehicles if you don’t have your own Germany insurance company.

Note that most European insurance companies will not insure your vehicle if you don’t have an address in Europe. That’s why most customers opt for our Autopilot plan.

Third, we’ll schedule a safety and emissions inspection (TUV) for your vehicle, which will be valid for two years (if not yet completed).

Lastly, we’ll register your vehicle, obtain new license plates, and handle all paperwork at the DMV.

Once your vehicle is insured, TÜV-approved, and registered, it’s ready to drive. You inform us of your arrival location in Germany or Europe, and we’ll deliver the car, sparing you bureaucratic hassles.
