Importing a vehicle is heavily regulated to ensure that all rules and regulations are followed by all involved. You can begin to understand the process by obtaining a list of rules and requirements with the Australian Customs.
You will also need to take the following steps in order to import your vehicle:
- File an import declaration, pay all customs duties, and taxes.
- File for a quarantine inspection and set up your appointment for inspection.
- Have modifications done and documentation of all tests or modifications done to ensure that your vehicle is up to code.
Details of Shipping.
You should discuss your shipping needs with A1 Auto Transport service. They can help you prepare your vehicle and choose whether you want to use the Roll On/ Roll Off method or container shipping. If you choose the Roll On/Roll-Off shipping method, your vehicle will be placed on the ship by way of driving. If you choose container shipping, your shipping total will be higher. However, you will have a protected way to ship your vehicle and protect it from the elements at sea. The price your shipping agent quotes you will depend on what type of shipping method you choose, the time of year you are shipping, the size of your vehicle being shipped, any insurance you take out on your vehicle, and if you need your vehicle picked up at your home or office and then driven to the port your vehicle will be exiting from.
Before your Vehicle Ships.
There is always something that needs to be done when preparing for a shipment, especially a vehicle to another country. You will need to prepare your vehicle by doing the following:
- Have your vehicle steam cleaned both inside and outside in order to avoid quarantine. If you don’t, the vehicle will go into quarantine and sent to professionals who will clean your vehicle both inside and out and then charge you for this procedure. Your vehicle could experience a long delay.
- Have a professional remove all the air conditioning gasses before your ship out date.
- Be certain that your vehicle is ready to be shipped out and meets all laws that determine the eligibility. You can find these regulations by reading the Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
- If you have a lien against your vehicle, you will need the proper documentation that gives you permission to take the vehicle out of the country.
- You can file your paperwork with S. Customs and Border Protection. You will need to have the request for shipment at least seventy-two hours in advance of shipping.
