I have looked into the cost of doing this myself and found that it is not worth it in terms of cost (after you have paid for shipping and all the import taxes).



You are almost certainly better off purchasing a car in the TRNC

Our car is en-route from Felixstowe now expected to arrive sometime this week. We have shipped with Euromed in a container total cost 950 + insurance. A couple of months ago we were quoted under 600 but fuel costs have driven prices up dramatically. We delivered the car to Felixstowe and it will arrive into Famagusta.

This thread must be a repeat.



There you are, probably over 1,000 to bring here then over 60% of Glasses Guide value in taxes.



Is it really worth it. Even a semi decent car is probably going to cost 5k in taxes. So sell it in UK, save tax and transport cost and buy a decent vehicle here. Use any reasonable cost benefit analysis to work it out.



Little tale recently of a person who bought a cheap 4x4 in UK. When he got it here his taxes were 12000 compared to 8000 actually paid for vehicle.



It is not what you think value is but the value of the day at cutoms.

Hello Roger

I will Email you with the latest regulations so you can make up your own mind. I'm not going to post them on the forum as the last time I did that they'd changed the rules before my posting reached page 2 !

Kind regards

Jo Valentine

Rogerdodger it's definitely a buyers market here because there are literally thousands of cars on forecourts all over the North. You just need to be prepared to drive a hard bargain.
