UK Car Imports

Our 4 steps Involved in Importing Cars to Ireland from the UK.

Step 1. Find the car you want:

It’s really simple, firstly choose the year, make and model, up to three colours of your choice and five important optional extras you cannot live without.

Our experienced team of buyers will immediately get to work for you and find your perfect match!

Step 2. Do a history check:

We ensure all background checks are thorough and precise for your peace of mind.

A HPI check is performed on your desired uk registered car from our shortlist which is the UK's system for checking a vehicles history. We only require the vehicle registration number OR Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) at this point.

The HPI Check will confirm the following details:

Vehicle Description:
Using the Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) our HPI Check will confirm the vehicle description registered with the DVLA. This will include the year of manufacture and date of first registration with the DVLA. In addition we will be advised of the number of previous owners registered and the date of last owner.

Vehicle Title:
Using the Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) our HPI Check will confirm the vehicle description registered with the DVLA. This will include the year of manufacture and date of first registration with the DVLA. In addition we will be advised of the number of previous owners registered and the date of last owner.

Using the Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) our HPI Check will identify whether this vehicle is subject to:

  • Any outstanding finance
  • Is of current police interest
  • Has been registered as an insurance write-off

  • Where the vehicle has undergone one or more registration plate changes, we will be advised of each previous registration plate and the date it was applied to the vehicle. Each previous plate will be checked for any current title interests as described above.

    Step 3. Get the car:

    Once you’ve confirmed your order, you’ll put down a deposit, depending on the value of the car by debit or credit card to secure your new car. You can choose to do this over the phone from the comfort of your home or visit our showroom - it’s up to you.

    We will then send you a receipt and a confirmed order form and will keep in touch until delivery or collection is due.

    We will fully manage the transport, perform a pre-inspection service and complete a full interior and exterior valet.

    Step 4. Register the car:

    We make an appointment to have your UK import inspected within 3 days of the vehicle entering the State in order to register and pay the VRT. The remainder of the balance is paid directly to us by bank transfer or bank draft upon collection of the car from our showroom in Sandyford. Any finance documents are signed at the same time.

    All that’s left for you is to sit back and wait for your shiny new car to arrive.
