We assist hundreds of customers each month to register their cars with a CoC. It is one of the most popular routes to registration but not always the best depending on the car.

Once you fill out a quote form we will provide you with the cheapest way to register your car. If you need help simply ordering the CoC then we can help solely with that.

But as a full service import company we are here to take the hassle out registering your car so don’t hesitate to get in touch as we can take care of your import at any point of the process (even if you are yet to transport it to the United Kingdom).

We like to say no two cars are alike so getting a quote is the best way to know for certain!


We love the wide variety of Abarths and can assist in a plethora of ways and with an IVA lane we can assist regardless of your route to registration.

With the recent changes due to Brexit, we are also well versed in the importation of cars post Brexit if you are struggling to get your Abarth into the United Kingdom.

During the process of registration we take care of the paperwork with DVLA too.
