Can you help with classic car imports or vehicles from America that are already in the United Kingdom?
Absolutely. We work with a number of classic cars and for the large majority of vehicles that are already in the United Kingdom, we can assist.
Depending on your vehicle we will alter our quotations accordingly depending on what the route to registration is.
Can you help with American lighting conversions?
Absolutely. We have worked with countless American vehicles and can offer a like-for-like manufacture-level finish.
We understand that so much of the appeal comes from those big indicators that are sequential. Which is why for most vehicles we will offer a very bespoke process.
The truth is, no two cars are alike. We modify cars to maintain that look and feel but also make them road legal.
We have developed a lot of different methods that are in some cases unique to us. For example, some companies will choose to break apart lighting modules when they can to change your indicators over to amber. This is something that we do in the worse case scenario, but a lot of vehicles can be modified with a like for like effect without damaging the integrity of the vehicles lighting units.
Can you help with importing motorbikes from America?
We have worked with a wide variety of vehicles from America and motorbikes are no exception. There are so many fantastic examples of motorbikes that come from America (although they are usually always Harley’s) we can understand why sometimes owners import them.
For motorbikes, we work with some of the best motorbike transporters in the industry to ensure there are no issues.

If you are moving from America to the United Kingdom then you might be using the ToR relief scheme to bring your possessions with you to the UK. Whilst we can’t complete your ToR1 form, we can provide assistance with any queries that you have.
We help a number of customers each year to move from the United States to the UK.
Please note that if you would like to use your vehicle as a way to transport your possessions we are more than happy for you to do so. We understand that you are wanting to make the most of the space when paying for shipping and you can save a great deal of money by doing so.
Do you offer a buying service for American vehicles?
If there is a car of particular interest to you that you haven’t purchased yet – don’t hesitate to get in touch.
With years of experience buying cars abroad, we can offer impartial guidance on the process and take over the importation of the car once you have purchased it.
We can also assist in some cases with the sourcing cars that might be hard to find or obtain. Please note this is not a service we offer for all cars and is intended for serious buyers only.
Can you help with paying for a vehicle in America?
If you haven’t actually purchased the car you intend to import – where do you even start.
Take the time whether or not the car is actually genuine. It’s worth working with dealers who specialise and have a good reputation in the motor trade. However, if you are already in America and are purchasing at face value, then you can be a little more liberal with who the car is purchased from. But if you are purchasing the car from overseas? Use a trusted car dealer.
Look over the car and don’t be afraid to scrutinise the fine details of it all. Don’t feel pressured to make the purchase then and there – as there could be a history of damage to the car that might catch you out. Once you’re happy with the American car – it can be tricky to get the best price due to fluctuations in the exchange rates. For everyday purchases, it can make a very minor difference to the overall figure but in regards to large capital purchases? It can be a big difference. There are many companies that act as brokers which will often provide a reasonable and above market exchange rate than say, your high street bank.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss the purchasing of a car.
Can we help with any additional modifications or remedial work?
Depending on the age of your vehicle there could be remedial work required to get it ready for the roads and safe.

We always like to think it’s a great time to take advantage of not having your vehicle – whilst its with us, you can have any work done that you might want undertaking before you pick up the vehicle.
So don’t hesitate to get in touch with any special requirements.
Can we help to import unique vehicles?
