Classic Car Shipping FAQs
Here are answers to the most common questions we get asked about vintage vehicle shipping services to New Zealand
Can you ship vehicle that is inoperable?
Yes – our team works with all classic and vintage vehicles individually, so if not operating then we will simply manage them by hand. To avoid any damages or issues, we do not use fork hoists on vehicles.
Which parts of the US do you ship from?
Is original registration paperwork required to export vehicles?
What if my classic car is from a state that does not issue titles?
There are some states that did not issue titles for classic cars. These states are:
- New Hampshire
- New York
If your vehicle originates from any of the above states and was never issued a title, you must provide a notarised bill of sale.
Can you arrange a collection of my vehicle from the seller?
Can FPS arrange insurance?
What is Escrow Service?
This ensures additional security for overseas buyers, knowing the vehicle and all details are as advised to them by the seller.
I haven’t imported before, can FPS assist to arrange all clearances on arrival?
Do I need to pay Tax & Duty on arrival? Who to?
GST is applicable on all imported classic vehicles arriving into NZ at 15% of the Cost of the vehicle, plus freight, plus insurance. Duty is not applicable on vehicles, but some parts do attract duty. GST & Duty is paid to NZ Customs by FPS on your behalf, and this will be included in your final invoice.
Does FPS complete compliance also?
No, FPS completes all border formalities, including the New Zealand Transport Agency Border Check (verifying the VIN number of the vehicle). Vehicle compliance needs to be completed by an Entry Certifier, contact your local representative to discuss this further.
