Can I trust your dealership?

We know it can be daunting to put your trust in any car dealership, let alone one in a different country. It may help to take a look at what our customers say about us on Google, Facebook, Autotrader and CarGurus, and make up your own mind. What we can guarantee is that your vehicle will have undergone multipoint safety and bodywork inspection plus an independent mileage verification check before it is put up for sale, and that any necessary servicing is undertaken beforehand.

What is the process?

We have been exporting cars to Ireland and other European countries for over 20 years now, so we have a great deal of experience. The process is simple - just browse through our website to select your vehicle and then give us a call on +44 (0) 20 8566 177. Alternatively you can chat to us online for more information.

Do you offer a Warranty for exported vehicles?

We can’t offer warranty on cars exported from the UK, but warranties can be bought separately in the country you’re exporting to. We check our cars thoroughly prior to sale and are always on hand to help.

Can I have more pictures?

We appreciate it can be difficult to make a decision when you’re unable to personally inspect the vehicle. We can help by doing a live video walk-around the vehicle where we show you all aspects of and you can ask any questions. We are also happy to provide any extra pictures to help you make your decision.

How do I pay?

Once you have decided on your purchase, we first email you a sales order and then a full invoice which includes our Euro account bank details for payment. Payment must be received in full before the vehicle is released for export.

Do you offer delivery, or do I need to collect?

We can organise transportation of your vehicle at an additional charge of £300 GBP. Alternatively, you may prefer to collect it in person. Our showroom is situated very close to Heathrow airport, about 15 minutes on the Piccadilly Line.

What paperwork do I need to complete?

In general, all vehicles brought into the Republic of Ireland are subject to Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) and must be registered with the Revenue Commissioners within 30 days of arrival in the country.

If you are moving to Ireland or are already living there and you are importing a vehicle, you must do 3 things before you can drive your vehicle in Ireland:

  • Pay VRT (unless you are exempt)
  • Have motor insurance
  • Pay motor tax
