So I'm looking at importing a car here from Australia (Australian designed & manufactured). Little unsure how to go about it though as I've never privately imported a car before, so was wondering if anyone has done it before and how it went, if theres someone who can handle it for you, etc. I've done a little research on the subject of compliance and NZ Customs requirements and found;
-Having an Australian Design Rules plaque stamped on the vehicle somewhere is valid evidence it complies with NZ crash standards & emissions regulations.
-Not having owned the car in Australia for at least 12 months would make GST and other fees on it payable to NZ Customs & MPI etc
-Documents showing sale of the car (Deregistration papers, Bill of Sale, etc)
Based on the above I think it is doable, but as I said keen to hear from anyone who has done it.
