      Category A! It ain't sexy, but it's worth importing based on those figures :)

      Ok I've been having a tinker with this for a little while and think I've got it pretty close. I've developed an Excel spreadsheet that provides an estimate of whether or not your car is

      Category A: definitely worth bringing, you'll do nicely out of it when the time comes to sell
      Category B: only worth bringing if you love the car and/or plan to keep it for a while
      Category C: not worth the aggro, you're better off selling it in the UK

      *Disclaimers* - the estimates are based on the following:

      1) using my services at AUD990 (it's set up for my customers, obviously!)
      2) using RORO shipping from Southampton (does not include transport to get your car to the port)
      3) the current GBP/AUD exchange rate
      4) a customs value at 75% of the normal market value
      5) includes customs duty and GST
      5) a set figure for dock charges (which I've deliberately set higher than what they normally come in at)
      6) includes the cost of a valuation and transport to the workshop once cleared
      7) includes $1000 for minor modifications needed for registration
      8) does NOT include registration costs (because you pay that on all cars, whether they're imported or bought here in Australia)

      As you can see, I've tried to be as upfront about the costs of getting the vehicle to Australia, and I have actually over-allowed on what many bills come in at. There are a heap of variables in here and each car is different, so don't be disheartened if you get a category C - the calculator isn't meant to be the ultimate authority, but it will give you a fair guide.

      What I need from you:


      1) Year/make/model/mileage/aircon or no aircon
      2) Market value in the UK (be realistic!)
      3) Market value in Australia (search via www.redbook.com.au and make sure you click right through to the description to get the correct price ranges - if you don't chances are you're looking at the price it was sold at when it was new)


      Let's test it out

      Hi,

      I also have my own calculator, something I put together as I was gathering info about taxes and other things. Does yours take into account of Luxury car tax? Anyway, these are my car details. Just out of interest, your service 990AUD - what is this all about?

      2006/Mercedes/C180/40K/aircon
      UK Market value - 7K
      Aus Market Value - $19K

      thx

      Hello mate ,

      cant find the equivilant in os , well spec wise anyway .

      Transit sport van , midnight blue ( 2010 ) 10K miles , aircon , leather ,blue tooth ,cruise control etc etc , all the options except the sat nav ( doubt the heated seats will be of use )

      UK 13K value , standard SWB van in oz around 30-35k ( however it still owes me and would need to settle finance first)

      i mentioned it on your other thread but i think it'll be the only transit sport van in Oz , made for european market only ( possibly UK only ) they made 400 in 2010 all midnight blue ( the colour denotes year , 2011 was red , 2012 silver etc )

      last question , could i load the back up with my stuff or does the " vehicle" have to be shipped empty ???

      as Iron Chef's pricing is based on shipping ro/ro you cannot load your stuff in the back. And it would get nicked anyway.

      Hi, we are having the discussion now about whether it is worth bringing our car over. It is a Volvo XC90, petrol 80,000 miles on the clock, with air con, worth around 9,000 in the UK and between 16,900 and 19,500 in Aus. Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hi Iron chef we have a 2007 range Rover sport, 2.7d, with air con 60,000 miles. worth approx 20,000. In the red book it said for the same model $87,900. are you able to help us with the cost we would incur to import. We might look to sell when we are in oz is it harder to sell imports.
