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:

  • 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.

Roll On/ Roll Off shipping is another option that is most often chosen because it is the quickest way to ship to New Zealand and it is also the most affordable because you only pay for the parking slot your vehicle takes up on the deck of the transport ship. The vehicle will be driven onto the deck of the ship and secured for the transport. Once it reaches New Zealand, it will be driven off.

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.

You will not need to pay any tariff which can lessen the amount you will pay for importing your vehicle to NZ. Working with A1 Auto Transport will ensure that you have a smooth delivery and transit. You can find out more about transporting by contacting the Embassy of New Zealand.

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!
