Many customers from Australia choose My Car Import to help them with the process. From start to finish we are here to ensure the safe shipment, modification, and registration of your vehicle.
But what exactly is the process, and what can you expect during the importation of your vehicle?
Your journey with My Car Import begins by filling in our quote form that is uniquely designed to gather all of the information we need about your Australian import to correctly quote you at any stage of the process.
You might have already shipped your car or perhaps you are moving soon to the United Kingdom. Whatever your circumstances we are here to assist with anything.
What are the next steps to get your car on
the road in the United Kingdom?
Once your car is checked in, if it requires modifications to be UK compliant, we will schedule time within our workshop to make the necessary changes. We will also schedule any relevant testing needed to show compliance and roadworthiness in the UK.
When importing a car from Australia to the UK that’s under ten years old, it will need to undergo the Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) process. This is a UK-specific scheme to ensure that imported cars meet the required safety and environmental standards.
We have the only privately owned IVA testing lane in the United Kingdom and also have the ability to conduct MSVA tests onsite along with MOT tests so your car will be onsite for the duration of this phase of the importation.
