How can you import American Cars from USA to Australia
- Step1: Find your vehicle manufactured before 1989 which do not have any major modifications (modifications should be reported to the department of infrastructure to determine if approval will be granted)
- Step 2: Contact our expert team
- Step 3: Let us take care of the rest! We will import your car from USA to Australia without any stress
Please note: If your American car arrives without an import permit it cannot pass through the customs border and will be ordered for re-export or destruction. Shipping your car before gaining import approval is not recommended.
Importing Modern And New American Cars
New cars and any vehicle manufactured post-1989 that is not eligible for one of the other import permits available is required to get complied with Australian standards by a RAWS Workshop. The RAWS Workshop must issue you the Import permit and handle the conversation to Australian Standards. We deal with many different American car compliance companies around Australia and can recommend reputable approved companies.
Immigrating With Your Car From The USA To Australia
if you are migrating to Australia the government has put in place an Import permit specific to your situation. As long as you have lived overseas and owned your car for more than 12 months to be eligible under the Personal Import Scheme and you can only import one vehicle every 5 years.
Terms and Conditions – Australia – USA Free Trade Agreement (USFTA)
Australia and the USA have a free trade agreement that allows American manufactured products including cars and trucks to be imported into Australia and avoid paying any import duty.
Approved Offshore Biosecurity Treatment provider for Used Vehicles
Dazmac and our partners have the only approved offshore cleaning facility in the USA. Based in Los Angeles we offer regular consolidated containers for vehicles and motorbikes to Australia. Handling quarantine cleaning offshore saves money and removes the hidden cost associated with quarantine depots in Australia.
