Exporting a car?
« on: May 14, 2016, 07:47:34 am »
Hi

Has anyone bought a car here and exported to  sa e.g for family there?
A friend wants to do so and I would imagine it to be expensive and complicated.

Thanks

Hi there

Unfortunately, you will not be able to register that car in SA, unless it was owned for 1 year or more in NZ, and is going into the ownership of the same NZ owner in SA. This is usually the case for returning residents, and not really to send cars there for family members.

Thank u

You're welcome. Any chance you know what the shipping charge for a car from NZ to SA would be?
