TAKING A CAR TO ADELAIDE
  • CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME TO BRING A 2010 CAR OVER TO ADELAIDE, IT NEEDS NO MODIFICATIONAS HAS ITS A STANDARD CAR. MANY THANKS
  • Take a look at this link:

    http://www.carshipping.co.uk/australia/auspack.pdf

    They estimate the actual shipping costs around £1600-£1800, plus insurance (£100-£300).

    But the taxes, inspection and possibly modification/compliance costs on the Aussie side will probably be higher than the shipping cost.

    eg. Duty (5% of customs value). GST (10%).

    Then there's a whole range of handling, inspection, quarantine, certification, etc. etc. charges that you could be hit for.. they're all listed in that doc.

    This is also a very informative page on the import rules:

  • Hi there.... is it possible to ship car from any part of Australia to another country..?
    & how much it will cost?
  • We brought my my husband ducati over It cost $3000 for the compulsory checks which took around two weeks to complete. The Ducati was worth it as they are very expensive here and it was paid for but cars unless it is a a vintage or particularly important car I wouldn't bother. Some makes aren't popular here and getting parts is hard and expensive.
