Shipping a new tax-free car to Cyprus

  

 

We will send you a tracking link once the vessel departs, but should point out that some services are currently taking 18 days to reach Limassol.

Cars are loaded into containers at our London depot

and transported to Felixstowe for shipping.

They are loaded 4 to a container using the renowned

R-Rak system, exclusive to our shipping agent, 

Cyprus Global Logistics, based in Limassol.

  

 

 

 

 

 

This system has an excellent record for not damaging vehicles in transit.

 

 

 

If you would like to contact Cyprus Global Logistics

for shipping your car back to the UK at the end of your

posting to Cyprus

Please email pricing@cyprusgloballogistics.com.

And why not include personal effects, free of charge?

NB The shipping agent doesn't charge for loading your vehicle with                    personal effects, but Cyprus Customs may charge, so please check first.

   
                                               
 

 

No need for you to visit Limassol Customs,

as we take care of it.

Nothing to pay when collecting your new car, either.

Your shipping quote covers almost* everything.

Even basic cover marine insurance is included - courtesy of our

Shipping Agent, Cyprus Global Logistics.

*What's not included: MoT, registration and Cyprus number plates,

which total €205 euros (plus road tax). This is paid to the

Transport Office Agent when he registers your car.

 

 

 

 

 

Then when advised by our Shipping Agent that we are

clear to do so, we head to the Bonded container

warehouse to collect your new car (again no charge,

we pay the first week's storage).

Finally we have it hand washed, if required, after

its long journey from the UK.

     All part of the service!

Here's some interesting articles from the Cyprus Mail, worth a read.

NEW POST-BREXIT RULES FOR IMPORTING USED CARS INTO CYPRUS

UPDATE ON 20 JAN 2021 RE: IMPORTING CARS OVER 5 YEARS  OLD

    

SO, TO SUMMARISE: THE COST OF IMPORTING A NEW, TAX-FREE VEHICLE FROM THE UK:

Shipping, Basic marine insurance*, Limassol Port charges and Clearing Agent's fees are all included in the shipping price quoted, (from February 2020), so there will be nothing for you to pay on collecting your new car.

*You can, if you wish, upgrade to all-risk marine insurance for 1% of the total price, car + shipping. Most customers, however, prefer not to pay the extra 1% and rely instead on the basic cover included in the quote, details of which can be seen by clicking here.

 

An MoT is €35, and all pre-registered vehicles entering Cyprus require one.

 

 

 

REGISTRATION FEE is €150 per vehicle.  You can pay by card if you prefer.

   

 

ROAD TAX:  New emissions-based charges, from 1 Jan 2020:

  Emissions of 0-120 g/km... €0.50 per gramme      

121-150 g/km.... €3.00 per gramme

                   151 - 180 g/km.....€6 per gramme

              Above 180 g/km it’s €12 per gramme.

         You can buy 3, 6, 9 or 12 months road tax.

 

After registration, you’ll need a set of Cyprus number plates, price €20, fitted.

 

You also need to buy two Registration stamps, but we will supply these to our customers, free of charge.
