Welcome to New Zealand Country Page

New Zealand restricts import of used vehicles under the special rule. Please refer to the following for more details.

Vehicles which can be imported into New Zealand
  • Vehicles with 3 digit Emission codes
    "Emission code" is stated as "Model Number" on each unit.
    The letters before hyphen must be 3 digits, like "DBA-DY3W".
  • Vehicles which are older than 20 years (2000) from its first registration
    Vehicles which are older than 20 years can also be imported into New Zealand as a classic car.

The ports we can ship in NZ are Auckland, Wellington, Lyttelton, Nelson. It usually takes about 3-4 weeks from Japan to New Zealand.

We understand the compliance in New Zealand is very strict and recent issues for vehicle imports. Importers need to care about unexpected extra repair cost if the vehicle fails compliance.

Our well trained professional inspector does inspect every single vehicle to pass the strict compliance inspection along standard of NZTA (New Zealand Transport Agency) prior to shipping. All vehicles are inspected for structural/rust damages under the hoist/ramp in our garage.

We always advise you about the compliance rule so you can always proceed safely with the transaction and import compliant vehicles from Japan. Most of Japanese suppliers take the vehicles from Auction to loading port without any checks, but only Autorec can supply you the full underbody inspection services.

D2D Service and Pre-Shipment Inspection
We mainly ship vehicles to New Zealand using D2D service.

Our D2D service(Door Delivering Service) includes below;

  1. Ocean Freight
  2. Marine Insurance
  3. Odometer Inspection
  4. MAF Inspection
  5. Pre-shipment inspection (NZTA)
  6. Transport cost in NZ

The company provides this D2D service;
Company name : Moana Blue

Their D2D service includes the Pre-shipment Inspection (NZTA) for the rust and structural damage on all the vehicles using their D2D service. It is like a "Pre-compliance Inspection" which can be conducted while the vehicle is here in Nagoya. If there are any matters that would prevent the vehicle from passing the compliance in NZ, they will report prior to departure.
