How It Works

  1. Call, Email or What's App message us regarding the vehicle you have selected, we can then give you information on loading, shipping and any other additional pictures or videos of the vehicle you would like to purchase
  2. After we have agreed the vehicle price and shipping information we will send you a proforma invoice with all vehicle details, our details and bank details for you to arrange a deposit or full payment to be made.
  3. As soon as your truck leaves the UK we will send you a shipped on board confirmation and approx. one week into sailing we send you all the documents ( V5 Registration Document and Bill of Lading) by DHL to the address you provide us and we will supply you with the tracking number.
  4. Once your truck arrives in the destined port you will need to arrange custom clearance and collection of your vehicle, we will help you with this by supplying you with a clearing agent or you can use one you know of.

PLEASE NOTE WE WILL ALLOW UPTO 30 DAYS FROM PROFORMA INVOICE DATE TO HOLD YOUR VEHICLE

ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON REFUNDABLE
