Are you looking to buy a European Cars from auction, privately or through a buyer's agent? Before you send any money overseas and attempt to be importing cars to australia from UK we recommend:

  • Ensure the exact European car is listed on the SEVS register . You must match the full brand, model, variant and year range. 
  • Understand all your costs before you buy, including compliance costs.
  • Never ship before you have a vehicle import approval
  • Review photos thoroughly 
  • Check for significant rusting of the chassis - European cars are exposed to wild winters full of snow, and roads are typically salted to reduce ice build up. This combination of salt and water can splash up underneath the car and create corrosion.

Using a car sales equivilent website are a great starting point for reviewing car stock available.

Once you found the ideal car and want to clear any doubts about its legitimacy and ownership you should perform a vehicle check with AA.
