Export Or Import A Car In The UK
Are you based in the UK ?
If you are located in the UK and looking to purchase either an imported Left Hand Drive (LHD) model or even export a Right Hand Drive (RHD) model out of the UK, then you have just visited the right web site here.
We are able to import brand new LHD models into the UK, to register on UK plates, for your use in the UK or elsewhere. To obtain a fully costed quotation, please contact one of our helpful Export Consultants to discuss your specific requirements especially if you know which specific model you are looking to import. Please visit our MAKE AN ENQUIRY section to be in touch.
If you are looking to export a RHD vehicle from the UK to another country, then we can also assist buyers with this task. We advise that you contact us to discuss your export requirements as our costing will include the tax-free vehicle price and insured shipping to your destination country.
Option 1 :
Do you want to import a Left Hand Drive (LHD) car into the UK ?
Importing and registering a new Left Hand Drive (LHD) car from mainland Europe, for use in the UK and the EU, can be a daunting task. Buyers may, for example, have the need to benefit from a vehicle that can be driven in the UK but the majority of driving will be on EU roads, so an LHD vehicle is a preferred choice. We are only able to supply brand new marques to buyers in the UK so please contact us to discuss your import requirements.
Our procurement and registration package will include the following to get you 'on the road':
- Full DVLA required modifications.
- Registration cost including applicable UK Road Fund License.
- Inland UK Transport Costs
(In all cases, 20% VAT will be payable at current UK rate)
Option 2 :
Exporting a new Right-Hand Drive (RHD) car to another country from the UK:
You may be deciding to leave the UK and would like an RHD or LHD car delivered in your chosen destination country when you get there or you may have a family member or friend wanting a car exported from the UK to their chosen country. We can assist with the new car purchase and handle the export process of the vehicle for you direct to your destination country.
Our quotations will cover all costs to get the vehicle purchased and exported using our insured global shipping routes.
(Please note the vehicle registration arrangements in the destination country will be the responsibility of the buyer with the exception of New Zealand where we have an actual physical presence so can assist with local compliance and registration).
Please view the Car Imports section and select a vehicle or simply fill in your contact details on our Contact page.

For buyers wanting to import an RHD car into the UK where the intention is to beat the local UK dealer pricing levels, we strongly advise that we are NOT in a position to assist. Many years ago, importing an RHD car from Europe was big business as many imported cars were simply thousands of pounds cheaper than the local UK cars being sold in franchise showrooms up and down the country.
This was mainly due to the fact that exchange rates were much more favourable and also many UK dealers were not discounting their cars to customers thus creating demand from other sources. Now, due to exchange rate changes and more competitive local dealer pricing this option is no longer viable. Our advice is to approach your local UK dealer and haggle well!
