A friend of mine shipped a trojan over recently which was approx 1600-1800 sterling but unfortunately the rules changed literally a few days before it left UK ,and was refused it's entry into TRNC as it was deemed a commercial vehicle, so even if he could have paid duty on it he would'nt be allowed as it was for his own use, ie not commercial. So he had to send it back. It was a double cab by the way. So make sure on rules before you send

Taff if you are talking specifically about the cost of the shipping alone then we paid 1050 last July to ship a car in a container from Felixstowe to Famagusta including insurance. We had been quoted 525 a couple of months before but all the prices went up due to the rise in the cost of oil. It would be interesting to know if the price has since decreased. We used Euromed who can also do the customs clearance for you so make sure you ask for a price for this also. We delivered the car to Felixstowe ourselves and I think it took about 25 days to arrive.

I would not advice you to bring such a vehicle to TRNC it's expensive to ship expensive to tax and run here and if you really want a freelander you would be better of buying it here there 2 a penny or new you can push for a good discount at present.

Failing that buy one from the south all you need is a PO box number from south nicosia central post office.

Out of interest, how do they establish 'value' for Vehicle Import Tax in NC?



Is it a 'wet finger in air', or from confirmed documented purchase price?



New cars are now available in the UK at up to 40% discount. Some Main Dealers even offering a BOGOF!

It is supposedly based on the Glass's Guide so in theory it wouldn't matter what discount you got in the UK if the Guide says it is worth X. I think in reality they riffle through an old Glass's Guide from 1998 then move onto 'wet finger in the air', treble it and charge 60% plus KDV. They then calculate the TL equivalent using an exchange rate of 4TL to the .

yes jo

that is exactly what they do. they don't have glass's guide, which is for the uk trade prices.

i think they look at what they think you are worth and charge accordingly.

i would also advise not to do it, unless you have just won the lottery.

our double cab cost us 100% duty.
