How It Works Importing a Motor Vehicle Shipping Tips

How It Works

You find a vehicle that you’d like to ship into New Zealand, and we do the rest – literally. Extreme Global manages shipping times and container sizes, not to mention the required customs and MPI border inspections on arrival to New Zealand, plus we can arrange pick-up from anywhere in the US or UK and deliver your new vehicle straight to your door in New Zealand.


Importing a Motor Vehicle

New Zealand allows the import of 'used' vehicles, provided the vehicle meets applicable standards, safety and emissions requirements. There must also be acceptable proof of ownership and standards compliance. These things are checked in the process known as entry certification. Entry certifiers are appointed by the NZ Transport Agency to carry out this task. 


Shipping Tips

In New Zealand, cars and trucks are duty-free, but caravans are subject to 5% duty. Motorhomes and RVs are subject to 10% duty. Ask us about duty charged on other potential purchases. All imports are subject to GST of 15% on the landed cost (the cost of goods plus the cost of freight and insurance). Left-hand drive vehicles over 20 years old do not need to be converted to right-hand drive. Original titles or ownership papers are required for all vehicles being imported from the United States. All vehicles imported into New Zealand are subject to strict regulations, ask us for more information.
