If you want to visit Palmerston for recreation, for school, or because of work, you will want to obtain a residency permit. This would allow you to import your vehicle and drive wherever you want to go whenever you want. Importing your vehicle into Palmerston is not a difficult process you need to know the facts about transporting and what can be expected as well as how much it will cost to do so. You may contact A1 Auto Transport service to know more about the process and cost. We have been shipping vehicles to New Zealand and other countries globally for over 20 years.

Get the Requisite Permit

To start with, your vehicle will need to have a certification from the New Zealand Transport Agency in order to transport a vehicle to New Zealand. This is a legal requirement and cannot be avoided. This certification will ensure that your vehicle meets at least the minimum vehicle standards which include the age of the vehicle and the type of vehicle it is. Before a certification can be issued, you will need a physical inspection of the vehicle performed by a professional who will be able to issue this certificate to you. Some of the things that will be checked during the inspection include:

  • A working and accurate odometer
  • Minimum front impact standard regulations

You will need to provide any proof that is asked of you in order to complete your certification. You can find out more about registering a vehicle in New Zealand by contacting the New Zealand Transport Agency. You will find that New Zealand does not impose a tariff duty on vehicles used for personal use. If you are registering a motor home, you will certainly be charged a 10% customs duty. If a vehicle cost more than $1,000, there is an import entry fee of $29.26 as well as a bio security system entry fee of $17.63.

Taxes and Duties

New Zealand also does not charge any goods and service tax based on the value of your vehicle. Instead, this fee is determined by the CIF, or the Cost + Insurance + Freight. It will then deduct whatever is needed for depreciation. There is currently a flat rate of 15% in effect. The GST can be forgiven if you plan to move to New Zealand instead of just visiting however you will need to show proof of residence prior to shipment of your vehicle. You will need:

  • Your current New Zealand residence permit/visa
  • Your current returning residence permit/visa
  • New Zealand passport
  • Australian passport
  • Current New Zealand Work visa or permit that has been issued for at least twelve months to three years

★★★★★

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.
