New Zealand motor vehicle regulations.

It is essential that any vehicle imported to New Zealand passes all legal requirements and is awarded the clearance certificate by the NZTA-approved certifier. This is a standard assurance that vehicle meets or exceeds the quality standards as per the age and type of vehicle. It is a surety that the vehicle has an proper functioning odometer and the front impact requirements are met, apart from other requirements. This certification is necessary for the vehicle registration. If you want to know more about the process of shipping and registration of an imported vehicle, log onto New Zealand Transport Agency.

Tax exemptions and other costs.

It is crucial to know that there are no taxes on vehicles being shipped to Dunedin for private usage. Importing a motorhome, however, will incur a charge of around 10%. There is a $18 price to enter the biosecurity system and another $30 to enter the country with a vehicle worth more than $1000. Insurance premiums, shipping fees and the purchase price of the vehicle are all subject to a 15% Goods and Service Tax.

The GST is waived if you are permanently moving to Dunedin and can show the proof of residence in New Zealand. The documents that you need to submit include:

  • Valid New Zealand work permit/resident visa.
  • Returning residence permit.
  • Proof of ownership- NZ passport/Australian passport.
  • New Zealand work permit for a minimum of 1 year.
  • NZ visitors permit for 3 years.

As soon as the vehicle arrives in Dunedin, it is inspected and evaluated by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). After that the Custom clearances are given. To ensure that the whole process of import is legal, you need to submit these specific documents:

  • Passport of the owner.
  • Vehicle purchase invoice.
  • Title deed and vehicle registration.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Odometer Reading.
Auto Transport Dunedin

It is cheaper to ship to New Zealand as there are no tariff duties. It is essential that you ship your vehicle after clarifying with the shipping service. When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we take care of the logistics on all levels.

There are two main methods of shipping to Dunedin. These include RORO wherein the vehicle has to be shipped empty and is drive on the deck secured in place and driven off at Dunedin. The other method includes container shipping where the vehicle along with other household items are packed within large containers and sealed. It is only opened when it reaches Dunedin. Container shipping is more expensive than RORO so talk with the shipping service about the best method.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
