There are many valid justifications to take your US vehicle back to the UK first and foremost, assuming that you have possessed the vehicle for over a half year and lived in the US for over one year, you won’t have any expense/obligation to pay on appearance in the UK.
American vehicles in the UK have an enormous following and the right vehicle can sell for generally excellent cash, for instance a Shelby GT500, even two or three years of age, actually can sell for £30k – HM customs expect that you save the vehicle for basically a year in the UK before you sell it in the event that you settled no expense/obligation.
The Left Hand Drive market in the UK is 미국배송대행 areas of strength for likewise, purchasers rolling in from Europe to exploit the feeble pound and buy a LHD vehicle to reclaim. When a vehicle is tried and enlisted in the UK, it is extremely simple for them to then re-register on the mainland.
The US market here is huge enough that experts are all around the nation and parts are not difficult to obtain
So there are the monetary reasons, yet there is likewise one enormous factor….. fun! Nothing here comes anyplace near the eliteness of an American vehicle – our Horses definitely stand out and ‘road cred’ than any Ferrari/Lamborghini – how much Ferrari proprietors we have irritated with shows by drawing a bigger group is enormous J
Thus, how would you approach doing this…..
Indeed, I’ll tell the truth, it’s difficult in the event that you are doing it without anyone’s help – here is a rundown of things to remember:
US Transport – Ensure you utilize a believed transporter who is protected to take your vehicle to the port and manage all the desk work – your unique title should be shipped off your delivery specialist
Delivering – In the present market there isn’t such a cost contrast between ‘roll-on-roll-off’ (like a vehicle ship) or containerised – but I would continuously suggest containerised – your vehicle is securely lashed and chocked into a holder which no one approaches. Need all your belongings taken and your vehicle headed to the boat excitedly? Then use Roll-on-Roll-off and save yourself a couple of dollars, I wouldn’t suggest it though…….
Marine Protection – Ensure you guarantee the vehicle for knocks and scratches as well as for absolute vehicle misfortune should the most awful happen….
UK Dumping and Organization Expenses – But you decide to send, your vehicle must be dumped from the boat, this isn’t something you can do yourself thus you want a UK freedom specialist, they will likewise present your documentation to customs for you
Customs Values – in the event that you have claimed the vehicle for over a half year and lived in the US for more than one year, there is no Tank/Obligation to pay, generally it’s 10% for vehicles and 22% for trucks and afterward 17.5% Tank – except if your vehicle is an European constructed vehicle, for example, a Puma in which case it is simply £50 obligation and afterward the Tank on top
UK transport – Don’t anticipate turning up at port and drive your vehicle away. You will lose your decent new UK driving permit before you even hit the M25 (a motorway around London – you will encounter it and you won’t appreciate it;) ) – You want a reasonable vehicle organization to convey the vehicle to whichever carport is doing your changes, ensure they can convey legitimately the heaviness of your American vehicle, many can’t and they are not safeguarded
IVA Testing – Officially the SVA test, however renamed at enormous expense for the ‘IVA Test’ yet basically something very similar – this is certainly not a simple test to traverse, the vehicles lighting framework should be changed which on current vehicles should be done appropriately by a prepared IVA engineer, even European vehicles imported from the US are a genuine aggravation to overcome this test as relatively few have the vital E’Markings that VOSA reviewers love so much…. There are different prerequisites, for example, sharp edges, exhaust commotion and so on that you likewise should conform to. Can be a genuine migraine and expensive in the event that you are not knowledgeable about it
Witticism Testing – Another test to get past – the Saying examines any vehicle three years of age for roadworthiness, things like worn tires/brakes/suspension – some of the time assuming that you dread your vehicle might come up short, best to purchase extras and put them in your vehicle prior to transportation from US (provided that delivery by holder for wellbeing)
DVLA Enrollment – An enormous piece of my life has been spent in a nearby DVLA office thus could a huge piece of yours in the event that you don’t fill in the right structures and give the right documentation – you will as of now need UK protection which you want an insurance agency able to guarantee the vehicle on a frame number as you won’t have an enlistment number yet
DVLA Investigation – Some of the time you need to take the vehicle to the DVLA for them to check out – once more, utilize a reasonable vehicle organization
Number plates – Ensure you fit decent looking UK/US measured plates to suit the appearance of your vehicle
Clearly the option is to utilize someone to deal with the whole cycle for you, somebody like us maybe…
