Ship Car To Hamilton
🇬🇧 United Kingdom, (GB)

A beautiful city in South Lanarkshire in Scotland, Hamilton is located in the Lowlands. It is the main hub of administration and trade in the council area and the city is counted as the 4th largest in the country.

Hamilton is about 12 miles from Glasgow and is scenically located on the banks of River Clyde.

Irrespective of the reason of your stay in Hamilton, the fact remains that using public transportation can add up to the cost of your stay apart from limiting movement to a certain extent. Thus whether you are a returning citizen or working here in Hamilton on a work permit, you can import your personal vehicle and enjoy the freedom to traverse the city. However, the first step is to hire the services of a reliable and experienced auto shipping company such as A1 Auto Transport service.

Cost of import to Scotland.

When you import a vehicle to Scotland, the tax and tariff depend upon the size of the engine, amount of emission and other technicalities while there is additional VAT which has to be paid. However, if there is a possibility that you are eligible for tax exemptions, we’ll be glad to help. The conditions for tax-free import include meeting the following conditions:

  • If you are relocating permanently ot Hamilton or any other city in Scotland/UK.
  • In case you are re-importing a vehicle that was exported to U.S.
  • If you only need the vehicle temporarily (for less than 6 months)

There are other specifications and regulations that have to be followed which includes that any vehicle over the age of 10 years, calculated from manufacturing year has to follow the laws laid down by the Department of Transport. Additionally, you are required to fill in the details at the Vehicle Import Pack. It is important to know that Scotland’s laws are strict and it is essential to follow all emissions laws and has to clear the relevant inspections or the vehicle will be quarantined at the port.

Documentation for import.

After the import process begins, you need to notify the HM Revenue and Customs by filling out the relevant forms. In case you are importing a left hand dive vehicle, you are required to submit the Certificate of Mutual Recognition, in addition to the European Certificate of Conformity which all import vehicle owners have to submit. For those moving here on a permanent basis, you are not required to pay VAT. However, you need to be eligible only if:

  • Moving to Hamilton on a more permanent basis.
  • Have been living abroad for over 12 months.
  • Owning the vehicle for over six months.
  • All liens and taxes need to be paid.
  • Cannot sell it for 1 year.

Some of the documents that need to be submitted to the Customs department in US and in Scotland include:

  • Registration certificate.
  • Title deed.
  • Ownership proof- passport/driving license.
  • Insurance.
  • Bill of Lading.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
