UK Import Specialists
As a BIFA member, we are committed to upholding the industry’s highest standards and have undergone thorough auditing to ensure that we meet all of the relevant entry criteria. In addition to our membership, we are proud to have a team of experienced professionals who are dedicated to providing fast, safe, and reliable vehicle relocation and shipping services. We also carry freight forwarder liability insurance to protect our clients and their vehicles. All of these factors combine to make us one of the most trusted and respected vehicle shipping companies in the industry.
Importing a vehicle into the UK can be a complex process, especially when it comes to customs clearance. It’s important to work with an agent who is knowledgeable about tariff codes and can ensure that you only pay the taxes that you are legally required to pay. This can save you time and money, and make the import process go more smoothly.
When choosing an agent to handle your customs clearance, be sure to ask about their experience and expertise in this area, and make sure that they are familiar with the latest rules and regulations.
If you are shipping the car as part of a Transfer of Residence, that may well mean you do not have to pay any tax or duty. If in doubt, get in touch and we will be happy to talk you through everything.
At all times whilst shipping your car, it will be handled by the best in the industry and with the most comprehensive insurance policies in place at all times.
Our UK based workshops allow us to keep the process of testing & registering your vehicle all in-house to ensure levels of quality are kept at a level we are proud of.
With dedicated account managers at the DVLA and DVSA we can ensure your vehicle is allocated a test slot as quickly as possible, with all the correct forms completed for IVA bookings well in advance of UK arrival where possible.
The DVLA process can be one of the longest parts of the entire car shipping journey, with our dedicated account manager we can liaise directly with them on any queries they may have in regards to your specific application.
