Finding your dream car can be a challenge in the UK with most of the pristine examples spending their days in museums or in the hands of private collectors which often leads most to seek out vehicles outside of the UK.
We’re relatively lucky to be able to import vehicles into the UK from outside of the EU that are older than 30 years for a mere 5% VAT, which is a considerable saving when compared to potentially 20% VAT that is payable on newer vehicles, and that doesn’t include the hefty duty charges.
However, the registration process for older vehicles can be a little bit tricky as can the process of navigating the customs system. Luckily we have a wealth of experience registering older cars, tracing and piecing together all of the documentation required to get your classic dream car on the road and with dedicated contacts across the globe we make the process a little less frustrating for you.
My Car Import has a long-standing history in the UK market for the importation of classic vehicles, whether that be a £200,000 supercar or a transferring resident bringing across a sentimental classic they don’t want to leave behind.
You can rest assured that you are dealing with enthusiasts who are truly passionate about ensuring that every stage of your vehicles import journey is on par with our high standards. Over the years we have safely organised the collection, registration, and restoration of thousands of classic cars.
Given the heritage and value of classic cars, we’re only happy to ship with the best of the best, and we offer a bespoke vehicle moving service at all stages of the import to ensure your vehicle isn’t exposed to the elements.
On arrival, it’s taken inside for a full inspection and any potential remedial work is outlined to ensure roadworthiness. In the past, we have organised vehicles to have bodywork and maintenance to ensure your newly imported classic car is running on all cylinders.
With our dedicated account managers, we are able to process your registration whilst undertaking any remedial work as required, meaning you never wait longer than necessary for your classic car.
