Requirements for Temporary import.

Tourists that want to visit Whangarei on a temporary basis will want to bring their car with them. You can import temporarily for up to twelve months. While there, you will need to keep track of time and make sure you don't go over your time. You can keep your existing plates on your vehicle and you won't be required to pay any import taxes or VAT.

However, the vehicle will need to be certified by New Zealand Transport Authority and you must have all the legal requirements met in order to import your vehicle here. This certification ensures that your vehicle meets all certain vehicle standards required by New Zealand authorities. The physical inspection of a vehicle can take a while because it verifies a few different factors:

The owner of the imported vehicle must always obtain proof that all these certifications are met before registering the vehicle. You can find out more about the requirements by contacting the New Zealand Transport Agency. The New Zealand is only one of few countries that do not require a tariff duty on vehicles that are for personal use. There are some exceptions, such as the 10% customs duty charge, transaction fees of $29.96 on vehicles that value more than $1000, and an entry levy biosecurity system of $17.63.

New Zealand also charges goods and service tax which customs calculates on the basis of the value of your vehicle plus insurance plus freight. Then you can subtract any deductions for the depreciation. There is currently a flat percentage tax of 15%. GST is waived in a case that you are moving to New Zealand on a permanent basis and you are able to provide proof of residence. You will need to verify residency by providing any of the following documents:

  • NZ/Australian passport.
  • Valid New Zealand residence permit or visa.
  • New Zealand visitor's visa or permit, which can be issued for at least three years.
  • Valid NZ works visa or permit, which can be issued for at least twelve months.

Once your vehicle enters the Whangarei port, it will be inspected by the Ministry for Primary Industries for both inspection and cleaning. It will then be transferred to NZ customs in order to be cleared. You will need to have the following documentation with you to proceed:

  • Passport.
  • The commercial invoice which shows the amount paid and the date you purchased it.
  • Certificate of Title.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Current registration.
  • Freight costs and insurance invoice.
  • Odometer reading.

There are no extra tariffs in New Zealand so the importing your vehicle will not cost as much when compared to other countries. You will need to hire A1 Auto Transport Service to handle the transporting needs and ensure that everything goes smooth. To find out more, contact the New Zealand Embassy for more information.

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!
