American Car Import Specialists

Since 2006 we have assisted thousands of people to import a US car into the UK including the shipping, testing and registration processes.

We have built up a network of US hauliers who can safely move your vehicle across states to our closest port facility.

We ship enough cars from the USA to be full container load shippers, we use R-Raks to ensure safe loading of your car into a container and ensure a speedy departure through US customs and inbound to the UK.

Car Import UK

Having handled the import of so many US imported vehicles, we are experts in the required conversion process, the testing procedures with the DVSA and the quickest way to register your American import with the DVLA.

We understand the complicated nature of modifying an American car for use on UK roads including, for example, the seperation of brakes from indicators and addition of side repeater indicators
