Step 7) Ship the Vehicle This will take 4 - 6 weeks. Please specify the destination port.
Step 8) Australian Customs Agent You will need to employ the services of an Australian customs agent to clear the vehicle through Australian customs, to pay import duty and process the vehicle through Australian Quarantine. Most vehicles are required to be steam cleaned at quarantine (an additional expense). We are happy to recommend our usual Customs Agent who is very efficient and reasonable.
Arrange a car carrier or tow truck to take your vehicle to the Compliance workshop to be complied. (It cannot be driven in Australia yet!)
Step 9) Transport to the Compliance Workshop
Step10) Comply your car This can be as quick as 10 -14 days and it can take longer eg if there is a shortage of plates, discussion items from DOTARS or the workshop is backed up. New tryes may be an additional cost to you not included in the compliance price.
Step 11) Register your car and drive it home! In most states a roadworthiness inspection must be completed before the car can be registered. This can usually be done by the workshop complying the car.
