Why Import Cars from the UK?

The UK’s automotive market is renowned for its range of classic, luxury, and high-performance vehicles, offering Australian enthusiasts and collectors access to models that may not be readily available or are considered rare in the Australian market. From iconic British sports cars to classic vintage models, the diversity of the UK car market provides a compelling reason for Australians to look overseas for their next automotive treasure.

Fastlane Forwarding simplifies the import process with a streamlined and customer-focused approach. Our process begins with a consultation to understand your specific needs and preferences.

Australia customs Regulations

Before importing a motor vehicle into Australia, it’s crucial to obtain approval from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts. The process requires one of several types of approvals, such as vehicle type approval or concessional RAV entry approval, and it’s an offense to import without these approvals. 

Importers must also consider various costs like pre-shipment, freight, customs duties, and biosecurity requirements. Vehicles must be clean and free of biosecurity concerns upon arrival. For more detailed information, it’s best to review the guidelines directly on the Australian Border Force’s website: Australian Border Force.
