Ship Car To York

Published by Joe Webster.

United Kingdom (GBR)

Auto Transport York

Car Shipping York

York is located in the United Kingdom, and is filled with historical events. York is a city that is surrounded by walls and is available to Ouse River and Foss River. It is located only twenty-one miles from Leeds.

If you want to ship your vehicle over to York from the United States, you will simply need to follow the rules and regulations that pertain to the Road Vehicle Regulations of 1989. Your vehicle must meet all areas listed in these regulations including safety, emissions, and environmental regulations as well. You will also need to pay VAT and import duties in order for your car to be released once it reaches York. You may be exempt from paying taxes and duties if:

  • You will be settling down in London on a permanent basis
  • You are part of a non-European Union member and are most likely not going to be there more than six months
  • You are importing a vehicle that was previously exported from the Uk
New Deals are now available for shipping all types vehicles using our vetted reliable shippers. Compare price estimates & Unlock up 25% off.

Taxes to Pay for Importing

If you are importing a vehicle, you will need to pay all import duty taxes including a 17.5 % tax and a 10% duty tax, if you have owned the vehicle for less than six months and bring proof of that and you want to keep your vehicle for at least one year after importing it. You will need to show proof that you have been living in the United States for at least six months and you have driven the car during that time. The vehicle has been licensed and insured while driving it in the U.S. You will be responsible for paying shipping insurance of 1.5% of the value of your car.

Paying Taxes

If you do not qualify for tax exemption, you will then be required to pay the taxes that are required to pay after your vehicle arrives in the United Kingdom. You will need to notify HM Revenue and Customs, HMRC. You will need to ensure that you have the Notification of Vehicle Arrivals form filled out, which you can get online. You will need to take care of this first and then your tax amount will be determined so you know what you need to pay. You will need to pay the VAT and if you don't, there are penalties that will be applied. You will need to provide the following information:

  • Bill of Lading.
  • Ownership proof.
  • Title to the vehicle that has no lien.
  • Vehicle purchase invoice.
  • Proof of ownership.
  • Inspection certification for emission and road safety.

You will need to get the vehicle import pack so you will know the mandatory rules and regulations. If your vehicle is over ten years, there will be additional rules and regulations to follow before importing. You can find out more information by contacting the DVLA. When hiring a shipping service like A1 Auto Transport Service, they can determine what forms you need to fill out and what rules and regulations apply to your importing situation so you follow them without any delays.

Once your vehicle arrives, you will be able to pick it up. You will want to register it immediately so you can begin driving it. The vehicle may need to be transported for you from the port to London so you can get it legal before it is driven. Always have your documents ready to hand over so you don't delay picking up your vehicle once it comes to port. You can learn more about the rules and regulations by contacting the Embassy of United Kingdom.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

Luis Rodriguez
You have my full support and recommendation!

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.
