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

Once your vehicle is off the ship and enters into Auckland, it will be inspected by the Ministry for Primary Industries, (MPI). They will inspect the vehicle and then clean it before transferring it over to customs for clearance. It is there that you will be required to provide the following documentation:

  • Your current passport
  • Commercial invoice which lists the price you paid for the vehicle and when you purchased it
  • Title to the vehicle
  • Bill of Lading
  • Current Registration
  • Freight cost
  • Insurance proof
  • Odometer reading

You will not be charged a tariff so importing your vehicle will certainly cost less than shipping to other countries. You will need to work with A1 Auto Transport Service to successfully transport your vehicle and handle all the issues that could arrive or normally arises with importing a vehicle.

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!
