Importing your vehicle to New Zealand will take some planning but it can be done. Using the assistance of New Zealand Customer Service, you can find out the rules and regulations of the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA). If you want to move to Invercargill, New Zealand, you will need help with your import. You can visit Invercargill for a short period of time or you can move there for good. All vehicles will need to be inspected and approved by NZTA before they can be imported and able to drive. The inspection of your vehicle will include that your vehicle adheres to the minimal frontal impact standards and that the car has a working and accurate odometer.

The owner of the vehicle is responsible for obtaining the certificate which is required in order to get it legal in New Zealand. New Zealand doesn't have tariffs charged to importing vehicle as long as the vehicles are being used for personal use. However, this rule does not apply to motorhomes which mean that motorhomes will need to pay the customs duty of 10%. If a vehicle is more than one thousand, the owner of the vehicle will need to pay a minimum of thirty dollars and another seventeen dollars for the biosecurity system entrance fee.

Importing to Invercargill will mean that rules must be followed as set forth by the New Zealand Transport Rules and Regulations. You will need to pay a Goods and Service Tax (GST) which will depend on the value of your vehicle, as well as the freight charges and insurance placed on your vehicle. The current rate runs approximately 15% if you plan to move here on a permanent basis. You will need to have documentation to prove that your application information can be verified. Some documents to bring with you include:

Auto Transport Invercargill
  • Current New Zealand visitor visa or permit.
  • Returning residential visa or permit.
  • Valid New Zealand residence visa or permit,
  • Valid New Zealand work permit or visa.
  • Australian passport/ New Zealand passport.

Once the vehicle enters New Zealand, the Ministry of Primary Industries will inspect your vehicle and clear it from customs before you can have possession of it. You will have two shipping methods to choose from; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. Both of these options will offer you a safe transit time and faster deliveries.

Container shipping is the one most expensive method of shipping. It involves your vehicle being placed inside the container and then the container sealed up before being loaded onto the deck of the ship for transport. Container shipping allows you to load all your personal and household items in with the car before the container is sealed. You may also want to consider sharing a container with someone to save money if your items do not fill up the container.

Another popular choice is roll on/roll off shipping, which is both the quickest and cheapest way to get a car to New Zealand. This is because you simply pay for the space your vehicle occupies on the transport ship's deck. In order to move the car, it will be driven onto the ship's deck and secured there. It will be expelled from New Zealand whenever it arrives there.

It's important that you have copies of all your documents to save time throughout this process. You will need to make copies of the following:

  • Bill of Lading.
  • Insurance invoice.
  • Freight cost estimate.
  • Passport.
  • Commercial invoice with the date of purchase and total paid.
  • Title to the vehicle.
  • Registration.

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.
