  1. I was looking through this forum and someone mentioned a DEFRA permit to export dogs. I already have my aqis permit for my dog but have never come across this DEFRA permit anywhere.:confused: We are living in Greece and exporting my little buster (sad eh!) from here so was wondering if it was only required in UK? Does anyone know? We are getting buster his 30 days prior to export vaccinations very soon as are looking to move end of feb. thanks anyone who knows anything!
  2. I've seen the daft prices of cars when in Aus and I've read the threads on PIO. I know about the tax on ordinary and luxury cars when exporting to Aus. There must be a cut off point on price that makes is it worth buying a car (or two) over here and shipping across. Has anybody done the sums? Does anyone have any advice? Cheers John
  3. mporting my van with my tools and clothes etc inside? Hi there, great forum I've been reading through a few threads which have been very informative, but i have a specific question. i would like to export my 2004 Ford Transit Connect SWB ( value £3500 ) from England to Aus with my work tools and my clothes, computer, books etc inside the van. My thinking is that i can turn up in Aus with everything i need to live and start work. I know about the modifications that may be necessary to the van and the cleaning of the tools etc and i'm not bothered if it costs me as much as buying the van in Aus So my question is, am i allowed to put my belongings in the van ( in crates ) and export it? Connect's seem rare in Aus and i think it would be unique and eyecatching once sign written plus it's a diesel ( most vans are petrol in Aus ) so would be much better on fuel, also commercial vehicles only attract 5% tax or so i'm led to believe A good plan? Or not? It doesn't have aircon but my mates car doesn't either and he lives in Sydney. Thanks, Aaron.

    Vehicle exporting to Australia

    Hi All, Just wondering if any one has any advice on shipping a car to Australia to save buying one when there. I was not even considering this option, but it seems that there are not many good 2nd hand bargains to be found in Oz. I have a 2001 model BMW which I bought for £4k, for the same amount of money in Australia it seems I will have to drop down to a car manufactured in and around 1995. I know that shipping will cost me as well as paying for customs inspections, roadworthiness inspections and import tax as it is considered a luxury brand, but does anyone have any ball park figures or advice on doing this? Thanks in advance, Glen.
  7. Has anyone got any advice re: exporting a porsche - classic car - is there a certain age it has to be deemed tax exempt or free from Luxury Car Tax etc etc - any ideas?? :jimlad:

    Exporting my dog

    I am taking my dog (once she has cleared all the blood tests etc). Could anyone who used Eastern Creek, Sydney quarantine station, tell me about their experience and any useful tips. ie nearby b&b accommodation (so I can visit her), whether you can pay extra for kennel maid to excercise her. Im thinking of using Air Pets to do the arrangements, has anyone used them? Im so stressed as I had her annual vaccination done in March so hoping she will be clear by October to travel. Not going to buy my ticket till she has cleared. Any advice gratefully accepted. This is my first posting, so please excuse any errors. Veronica
  9. Hello again guys Following on from my previous thread about car insurance, I have been looking at the cost of buying a motor in Australia compared to England at a rate of 2.25 I think that you pay a lot more in Aus for a car compared to the UK. So i am now looking into exporting a car from the UK. But I have to factor in the associated costs to see if it would be worth while or not. Can any who has gone through this experience give me a guide as to the costs associated along with time scales Thanks in advance Mark
  10. My OH has a 4ft aquarium. Pickfords said that if it goes in the container when it gets to Oz customs will disinfect it which means it can't be used again. Are Pickfords correct? He has tried to sell it but had no luck and does not really want to give it away. Just wondered if anyone might have any answers? Thank you Claire (god, I love these glitter things)
