Car Shipping FAQs 

Here are answers to the most common questions we get asked about our car shipping services.

What are the Regulations for importing cars to NZ?

The regulations for importing a vehicle into NZ are governed by the New Zealand Transport Agency. To find out the up to date regulations, please visit www.nzta.govt.nz.

How can I find out info on what the Duty/GST costs will be for importing into New Zealand?

GST is payable at 15% on the landed value, which is the value of the vehicle, plus freight, plus insurance. Otherwise known as the CIF (Cost + Insurance + Freight) price. If you are to be exempt from paying GST you need to meet the following conditions:

  • Be a first-time immigrant or a returning New Zealand citizen.
  • If a returning citizen, you must have been out of New Zealand for over 21 months.
  • Be prepared to sign a deed where you agree not to sell the vehicle for at least 2 years.
  • The vehicle must have been owned and used for the last 12 months.
