    The Import Oracle (?!)

  1. Have you applied for both in your husband's name? Might be best to contact me direct to discuss where you're up to. Don't respond to the department until you have.
  2. I think your partner has also sent an email enquiry to us, so I might be doubling up! As it stands, you could bring in two of the three vehicles, assuming you want to import the work van. Depending on which model the Ducati is, we may be able to do all three. All I will say is be very careful what you apply for initially - if the import approval for the Volvo is issued in his name, you won't be able to apply for the Ducati in yours if you don't have a motorbike licence.
  3. If you have been in Oz for less than 6 months, yes it's possible to bring it in as a personal import. You may actually be lucky with your particular car anyway, as it is eligible under SEVS too.

    Is it worth considering taking our car to SA

    A low mileage Cayman is almost certainly worth bringing over I'll be in touch
  5. You sit and wait, basically. If they need more information, they will ask.
  6. That should be sufficient. If you can show the house is on the market that should be fine.
  7. Hello and welcome! If you can fit your car and all your personal effects into the one container, then go for it. If you're going from a 20ft to a 40ft in order to accommodate the car, it might be worth checking the price difference. Feel free to email us for a cost breakdown
  8. It will be fine, you will just need to supply your marriage certificate as part of the documents. Your address on your driver's licence presumably matches your partner's address on the V5C, so you should be fine to bring both.
  9. My apologies, I didn't get a notification about your enquiry. It would be a bit of a unicorn in Australia because it's a manual, which may be a blessing or a curse come sale time. I'd love to have one personally. Servicing wouldn't be an issue. If you like shifting your own gears, definitely worth bringing over.
  10. Worth doing based on those numbers. Mileage is a touch on the high side, but still better than most Aussie delivered ones.

    Shipping a car to Australia

    Do you want to know about taxes? A valuation will bring the customs value (and therefore your tax bill) right down when compared to market value.
  12. As a general rule, shipping companies will ask for a clear HPI if they know the car is being exported permanently (for obvious reasons they don't want both car and owner disappearing). That being said, I love the Adam, but I am probably in a very small minority in Australia. Best to sell it off before you leave.
  13. Wow, cool. That would be a rare beast in the UK! Expect a conversion bill of someone around $30,000 on top of shipping and taxes, which changes the value proposition somewhat. Only consider it if you know the car well and want to keep it (and can afford the costs!), otherwise you might be better off selling it and buying one here already converted.
