Car Shipping Import UK

Clearing a vehicle into the UK is now a complicated process, even if shipping from Europe, you need to make sure the agent you assign to carry out your customs clearance uses the correct tariff codes to ensure you only pay the amount of taxes you are legally required to do so.

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.
