My Car Import are UK’s leading car importer from Dubai to the UK. Our expert team are on hand to deal with every type of vehicle, from supermini to supercar and with every element of the process, ensuring safe transit and a professional service in the UK.
My Car Import have a wealth of knowledge when it comes too importing cars from Dubai. Having an established contact base in Dubai allows us to effectively manage your import from the moment it leaves Dubai until it becomes a road-registered car here in the UK.
We have carefully selected car shipping specialists operating out of Dubai to handle our client’s cars. Our agents will guide you on the process of applying for export plates with the RTA and then receive the car at the loading warehouse. Our rates are for a shared container where we make a load with one other car destined for the UK. Our first priority is to ensure the security of your vehicle in transit but also we want to get your car shipped as quickly as possible to ensure the shortest times in the industry of getting you driving again in the UK. The other great advantage is the price as our rates are lower than even roll on roll off vessels but get to the UK in approximately 30 days rather than longer sailings for roll on roll of vessels.
Our contacts in Dubai will load your vehicle into a container prior to shipping to ensure its safety. It is insured for transit and a delivery inspection report is taken upon UK arrival. You can enjoy full peace of mind knowing that damage is covered up to the value of a total vehicle loss.
When importing a car from Dubai to the UK there are a number of tax and duty import liabilities when clearing customs in the UK:
Once customs cleared we unload the car from the container and arrange a vehicle transporter to collect the car and deliver it to our testing facility. Cars under 10 years old from Dubai will need an IVA test in order to be registered in the UK. We pre apply for your IVA test before the car arrives in the UK so on arrival our technical team do a pre test inspection and commence the preparation work required for the car to meet UK compliance rules. We are in the fortunate position of being the only company in the UK to own a privately run Government approved IVA testing facility which means we can normally test your vehicle within a week of arrival on site. Government run testing centres have had 12 weeks lead times for the majority of the past calendar year so it is a massive time save in getting your car legal to drive again in the UK.
We then MOT test the car which checks the general road fitness of the car and once passed we submit a postal registration application to our dedicated account manager at the DVLA who process the paperwork we submit and then issue us with your new UK registration number. Your plates are then made and fitted and your car can be collected or we can quote for onward delivery to your UK address. At this point you are required to arrange insurance prior to driving and the process is complete.
