Move Car Nelson

Import your vehicle to Nelson from USA.

In case you are preparing a move to Nelson, New Zealand on a temporary basis or, for that matter, as a returning citizen or you simply want to reside within the country with a residency permit, having your personal vehicle is most certainly going to be beneficial. It is important that the car is allocated the NZTA-approved certificate which ensures that all of the standards of the country are abided by. The inspection is based on a few things which include:

  • Matching the minimal standardization for frontal impact.
  • The odometer should be working accurately.

You or the shipping service is responsible for getting this certification prior to the registration. For more detailed information you might want to check with the New Zealand Transport Agency. It doesn’t have an applicable tariff on the imported cars for personal use and that’s why it is pretty cheap to import a vehicle.

Of course, the rule does not cover motor-homes and they would have to pay a customs duty amounting to 10%. You would also have to pay $30 transaction fee and $17 entrance fee and that’s it. There is, however, a GST – Goods and Service Tax which is applied based on the value of the vehicle as well as insurance and freight charges. The GST is currently at 15% if you are going to move to Nelson on a permanent basis. However, you would also have to provide a lot of documents such as:

  • Returning visa or permit.
  • Valid residence, visa or permit.
  • Australian or NZ passport.
  • Valid working permit.
  • Current visa or permit.
Ship Your Car Nelson

Once the vehicle is in the country, the Ministry of Primary Industries is going to inspect it and once it gets the clearance you would have to get Customs clearance. There are two particular methods of shipping that you can choose – RORO and container shipping. These are both quick and cheap in comparison. However, there are also additional documents that you have to prepare:

  • Passport.
  • Title.
  • Registration.
  • Ocean Bill of Lading.
  • Odometer reading.
  • Commercial invoice.
  • Insurance Invoice.

You can also check the official page of the New Zealand Embassy for further information.

★★★★★ 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.

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.
