Car Import for a Permanent Stay.

If you plan to move to Rotorua, New Zealand on a temporary basis or if you plan to return to New Zealand as a resident after living abroad, you will want to know the best way to transport your vehicle. Your vehicle will need to be allocated with the certificate by NZTA approved certifier. This is a certificate that ensures the vehicle qualifies for the vehicle standards in New Zealand and it meets the minimal requirement for the type and age of the vehicle. This inspection is based on a variety of aspects of the car such as your vehicle needs to qualify for the minimal frontal impact standardization and have a working odometer.

You as the importer will hold the responsibility for getting the vehicle certified before you can register the vehicle. You will need to contact the New Zealand Transport Agency to do that. New Zealand will not offer tariff on imported vehicles as long as they are for personal use. This reduces the cost that you will have to pay.

Tariff on Motorhomes.

This rule is currently not applying to motorhomes because the owners of a motorhome will pay 10% customs duty on it. The vehicles will be evaluated and it is more than $1000 in value, you are required to pay about $30. If the biosecurity system is activated, they will pay another $17 as a tax. Additionally, there is 15% GST (Goods and Service Tax) that has to be cleared. If you want to move here permanently, then you will need to include the following documents with your application:

  • Valid NZ resident visa or permit.
  • Returning residential visa.
  • Australia passport/ New Zealand passport.
  • Valid New Zealand permit or visa.
  • Current New Zealand visa or permit.

Once your vehicle enters the Rotorua, Ministry Of Primary Industries will then inspect the vehicle and clear it. You will have two shipping methods to choose from RORO and container shipping. These two methods are the most secure and fastest way to ship. You will want to make sure that you have all the documentation ready when you begin the transport process. Paperwork includes:

  • Passport of the owner.
  • Registration and Title deed.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Odometer Reading.
  • Commercial invoice.
  • Insurance certificate.

★★★★★ 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.

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!

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.
