What Is Involved with the Process of Shipping a Car from the USA to New Zealand?
🇳🇿 New Zealand, (NZ)

Through international auto transport services near your home in the U.S., your car enters the country of New Zealand safely.

Of course, there will be requirements demanded by the country, but an international shipping company with years of experience in the industry is usually keen on the stipulations involved with auto import laws.

With New Zealand being a widely traveled country, many U.S. citizens go there for vacation. Some decide to pack up and move there. If you ship a car to New Zealand, you can freely travel the beauty of the country without any hesitation or struggle. Public transport in a foreign country is often too hard to understand and use when language and currency cause limitations.

The Best Overseas Shipping Services.

  • RO/RO (roll-on/roll-off) Shipping.
  • Container Shipping.
  • Guaranteed Delivery.
  • Expedited Delivery.
  • Satellite Tracking Services.
  • Insurance Coverage.
  • Custom Solutions.

After picking what services and features are best for your needs in regards to shipping your car to the country, it is time to start preparing for the big day. Not only will you have to contact the Embassy of New Zealand for the requirements on vehicle import, but you will need to get the car ready. This entails washing it and removing all items that weren’t manufactured with the vehicle. The fluids and tire pressure must also be checked, while the fuel tank shouldn’t read above ¼ full. Batteries and alarms will need to be disabled.

RO/RO shipping methods require the automobile to be completely empty with the exception of floor mats, a spare tire and a car jack. Container shipping methods allow belongings to be in the car during the shipping process as long as they are in compliance with import laws.
