Typical Shipping Prices โ€“ How Much Does It Cost?

  • Vehicle transport costs to the UK from the United States will most commonly be between $2,300 and $4,800.
  • Because there is a lot of cargo that flows between the US and UK, there are plenty of shipping options, which means you can sometimes find a slightly cheaper price.

This DOES NOT have to be an intimidating process!ย  Armed with the correct information, it can be done as smoothly as possible.ย  One of the best things about shipping your car to the UK is that there is NO language barrier, and therefore, information is seldom misconstrued or misunderstood.

To begin, you must ensure your vehicle meets a number of specific regulations, such as the Road Vehicle Regulations 1986 and the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989.ย  If you are importing the vehicle permanently, you must also provide proof that your car meets all environmental and safety regulations.ย  This can be done by using the Individual Vehicle Approval scheme.ย  Details on this process can be found on the UK governmentโ€™s website.ย

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To The United Kingdom

  • Bill of lading.
  • Proof of ownership (registration)
  • Certificate of insurance.
  • Passport.
  • Import document C104A.

Upon entry into the UK, you must pay duties and taxes, as with any import into a foreign county.ย  You may also be subject to VAT (Value Added Tax), but there are a number of scenarios in which this fee can be excused as detailed at.

In short, you may qualify to have duties and VAT waived if:

  • You are making a permanent move to the UK.
  • You are importing a previously exported UK vehicle.
  • You are a non-European Union member and you donโ€™t intend to stay longer than 6 months (also known as temporary admission relief)

If you do not fall into one of these categories, be prepared to pay all duties, taxes, and VAT upon the vehicle arriving in the UK.ย  It is also essential that you notify HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) that you will be importing a vehicle by completing the โ€œNotification of Vehicle Arrivalsโ€ service online at this link.ย  Once this process is completed, the total owed for the VAT will be sent to you by the HMRC and you will be instructed to pay immediately.ย  Penalties will be assessed if the VAT is not paid.

Before you import your vehicle, it would be extremely helpful to obtain a โ€œVehicle Import Packโ€ from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (henceforth referred to as DVLA), the UK equivalent of the US Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).ย  This can be accessed on the Department of Transport website.

There are certain restrictions placed on vehicles over 10 years old, so it would be in your best interest to contact the DVLA prior to attempting to ship a vehicle of that age (see this website).

Upon arrival, it is extremely important that you insure and register your vehicle as soon as possible.ย  It is highly recommended that you transport your car from the port to its final destination, because you are not allowed to drive the vehicle until it is both properly insured and registered.

Please remember that it is in your best interest to always keep copies, or originals, if available, of all documentation used throughout the process as these are the forms you will most likely need to present to secure proper registration.
