It is mandatory to ensure that the vehicles adheres to specified regulations, like the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989 and the Road Vehicle Regulations 1986. In case, you are planning to import your vehicle on a permanent basis, your car must meet the present safety, emission and environmental regulations. You can do it with the help of Individual Vehicle Approval Scheme. As with any import, you are required to clear the VAT and import duties before the vehicle can be driven around in the city legally. But there are various eligibility criteria for tax exemptions on the vehicles which are:

  • Settling permanently in London.
  • You are part of the non-European Union member and are not likely to stay for more than six months, also termed as temporary admission.

If you are importing a previously exported vehicle of UK.

Payment of taxes.

In case, you are not eligible for exemption on the taxes, then you are required by law to pay your taxes, duties and VAT after your car arrives in the UK. You have to notify the services of HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and ensure that your vehicle completes the form of ‘Notification of Vehicle Arrivals’ online. After this procedure is has been done, you will be asked to pay the complete VAT as applicable. If VAT is not paid, penalties are liable to be applied. However, to legalize the procedure, you need to submit the relevant documents including:

  • Lien-free car title deed.
  • Car insurance.
  • Purchase invoice of vehicle.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Ownership proof.
  • Inspection certificates for emission and road safety.

Before importing your vehicle, it is mandatory to get the ‘Vehicle Import Pack’ so you will need to contact the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. There are some restrictions, which are placed on any vehicle of over ten years. Thus, if you are importing an older vehicle, clarify if it can be imported. Contact an agent from DVLA before planning to ship any vehicle of this age.

You have the option of shipping your vehicle by container shipping or RORO. Based on the requirement, A1 Auto Transport service will be able to advice you on the best method.

After arrival, it is best to register your vehicle immediately. You might have to transport the vehicle directly from port to London, as you are not allowed to drive your car unless you have it registered. It is important to keep the original and copied documents handy throughout the transit procedures. You will be required to submit the copies when you get the vehicle registered. To get more information about importing vehicles from USA, contact the Embassy of United Kingdom.

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!
