SHIPPING AND TRANSPORT CUSTOMS VAT + IMPORT DUTY IVA/SVA CONVERSIONS/TESTING VEHICLE REGISTRATION

The first question to ask yourself is why are you considering buying a car from another country in Europe?

Have you spotted a make/model that isn’t available to buy in the UK? Is the car you are interested in cheaper to buy overseas and have it shipped over, than to actually buy it in the UK? Does the car have modifications that aren’t generally available in the UK market? Or perhaps you are a collector and you have your eye on a vintage classic that you want here in the UK?

Whatever your reasons for buying a car abroad, there are some important things to consider and check before signing on the dotted line.

Importing a car to the UK can seem a daunting prospect as it a complex process that involves a lot of documentation which must comply with Customs VAT and UK Import Duty legislation. You will need to also get the vehicle registered for use on UK roads.

Specialised Shipping imports cars and trucks to the UK from all over the world, and our dedicated and highly experienced team ensure that all the i’s and t’s are dotted and crossed so your vehicle arrives safely into the UK as planned.
