Before you plan to import your vehicle for easy commuting in and around Glasgow, the two major rules that govern imports of vehicles include:

It is essential that the vehicle that you intend importing from USA meets all of the safety and environmental policies of UK. As per the prevalent laws, your vehicle needs to be approved as per Individual Vehicle Approval scheme. With different UK custom duties and taxes that are applicable, after your vehicle is shipped to Glasgow, you need to ensure you have the relevant information about it. The car vehicle taxes are applicable by the emissions and engine size and where the vehicle has been registered. There is additional VAT which is applicable before the vehicle is shipped to USA. However, there are exemptions available so you will need to see whether you fall into the category including:

Auto Transport Glasgow
  • If you are moving to Edinburg on a permanent basis.
  • If you are bringing back a vehicle exported from Scotland.
  • Non-European member and are importing the vehicle temporarily for below 6 months.

You should be aware of the VAT that is owed even if you choose reputable international shipping services like A1 Auto Transport service to help you move. To see if you are exempt from paying some taxes visit HM Revenue and Customs and fill out the appropriate forms. The Department of Transport in the United Kingdom also requires you to complete the car import pack before proceeding. If you plan on exporting a car that is older than 10 years this is a must. Used older automobiles face restrictions and constraints in the United Kingdom and Scotland.

Regulations on importing a vehicle.

It is essential to have a few documents for exemptions which include European Certificate of Conformity and a Certificate of Mutual Recognition, if your car is left hand driven. It is important to inform the HM revenue and Customs through Notification of Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA) when you import a vehicle. If you are moving to Glasgow, you might not be required to pay VAT if you are eligible for Residence Relief which is needed for vehicles imported from USA and other countries outside the EU. However, it is imperative that you meet these conditions including:

  • You are moving to Scotland.
  • If you lived for at least 12 months outside EU.
  • You owned and used the vehicle for a minimum of 6 months in USA.
  • You purchased the vehicle and paid all taxes.
  • You intend using the vehicle for at least a year.

To file for the tax relief, you have to fill in the Form C104A and will need to submit it with the Customs and Excise department. As with any import, you will be required to submit the proof of identity as the owner, insurance of the vehicle and other related documents. Talk with A1 Auto Transport service to select the best method to ship your vehicle to Glasgow or contact the Embassy of United Kingdom to get the latest updates on import laws.

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.
