The fourth largest city in United Kingdom, Leeds is ranked by Globalization and World Cities Research Network, as the Gamma World City. Situated in West Yorkshire, it is one of the major financial, economic and cultural centers of the country. If you are moving here to study or work, it might be more comfortable to bring over your car or vehicle from USA to enjoy traveling all over England.

The best aspect of importing to Leeds is that there are no language barriers and the laws are laid down and followed perfectly. This helps to plan the vehicle relocation with ease. When you coordinate and work with A1 Auto Transport Company, we ensure that all aspects of the move are planned and executed perfectly so there are no delays in importing the car to Leeds.

Import laws in UK.

It is important that the vehicle that is being imported meets all of the eligibility criteria which have been laid down in the Road Vehicle Regulations 1986  and the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989. Additionally, it is of importance that the vehicle meets the requisite standards of safety and emission control. To know more about the eligibility criterion of the vehicles, browse Individual Vehicle Approval scheme. It will give you the details about taxes and duties which have to be cleared before the imported vehicle is allowed to legally drive on the roads.

Left hand driven vehicles.

However, only right hand drive vehicles are allowed, though you need special permission to import left hand driven vehicle.  It is essential to pay taxes on any imported vehicle that is over six months old and has 3, 750 miles on the odometer. You are only allowed to register the vehicle if you are importing the vehicle permanently. Additionally, you need to get the headlamp adapters installed on these vehicles before you are allowed to drive it. You might need special permission, if you are bringing in a car that is older than 10 years. All permanently imported vehicles need to have the local insurance before they can be driven so you might want to contact A1 Auto Transport service.

Tax exemptions.

We know that there are many eligibility criterions that if you meet, you are allowed to import the vehicle without paying any taxes. Check if your car is eligible under the exemptions. Some of the conditions include:

  • Permanently moving to United Kingdom.
  • Again importing a vehicle back to UK that was exported before.
  • If the vehicle is being imported temporarily i.e. less than 6 months.

In case you do not quality under these conditions, you are liable to pay VAT and all the taxes to import the vehicle.  HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have to be informed about the import of the vehicle and you are required to fill in the “Notification of Vehicle Arrivals” and submit it. Then you are allowed to pay the VAT on the car.

Documentation for the import.

  • Proof of ownership- passport, driving license.
  • Title deed.
  • Emission and safety certificates.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Registration certificate and documents.

We will help you get through the processes so that your vehicle gets the clearances, for faster delivery. Container shipping and Roll-on/Roll-Off is the two methods that are used to ship the vehicle from USA to UK. If you are on a budget, and only need to ship your vehicle, then RORO works best. The vehicle is driven on, secured on the deck and at the Port of Bristol; it is driven off the ship. If you need to relocate and want to move your household goods, along with the vehicle, then container shipping works best.

Contact the Embassy of United Kingdom in USA to get the extra details on the current laws and regulations on imported vehicles.

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!
