You want to purchase a rare vehicle
Let’s face it, America is home to some of the world’s most iconic vehicles. If you’ve got your eye on a car that you can’t find anywhere in Australia, importing direct from the USA is your best bet. You’re bound to find the exact car with many more sellers to choose from.
The local cost is too high
You might be surprised to learn that it can be cheaper to import than purchase locally. In some cases, buying a rare make and model could cost a fortune compared to importing from another country. This is more common with luxury and hard-to-find vehicles.
You need a specific feature or option
Considering the low stock of most American cars in Australia, it can be virtually impossible to find some models with specific features. If this is the case, shipping a car from the USA to Australia might be the only way to get your hands on a specific engine type or aftermarket modification.
The car is a classic or vintage model
While finding a certain classic American car in Australia can take an age or cost a fortune, some of these vintage models are widely available in the USA. You might find that importing your car of choice to Australia is easier and cheaper than other options.
WHAT IS THE COST OF SHIPPING A CAR FROM THE USA TO AUSTRALIA?
If you’re considering shipping a car from the USA to Australia, it’s important to be aware of the potential cost involved. The experts at VSA are experienced with numerous shipping options, ensuring you can find the right choice for your budget and needs.
Perhaps the most important cost consideration is the mode of transport you select. Air freight is generally the most expensive option, while sea freight can be more economical but takes longer. You’ll need to weigh up the relative costs and timeframes to decide which option is best for you.
Another key cost factor is the size and weight of your vehicle. Larger vehicles will incur higher shipping costs due to their greater size and weight. Similarly, if your vehicle is carrying extra cargo or equipment, this will also add to the overall cost.
Finally, it’s also worth considering the administrative cost of importing an American vehicle into Australia. You’ll need to pay import duty, GST and other fees on arrival, so be sure to factor these additional costs into your budget.
By planning ahead and doing your research, you can ensure that you ship your car without breaking the bank. You can speak directly with our team at VSA for more information on our American car imports into Melbourne and wider Australia by calling 07 3862 4788.
