Customs and Quarantine Clearance

New Zealand’s customs is a complex and involved process, but not one that we are unfamiliar with. In fact, it is one of our specialities. Cars entering New Zealand are subject to a physical inspection by MAF Bio security (MAF), which is why it is important that your vehicle is thoroughly cleaned before leaving the UK paying close attention to wheel arches, the underside and engine compartment, and interior passenger and boot compartments.

Let Unsworth manage the whole process for you, for a hassle-free experience. For an instant, all-inclusive quotation try our online tool, Cargocost. For further information regarding our car shipping services please email or for immediate assistance call +44 (0)20 8539 8899.
