Importing a car to the UK is a tricky experience but there is help available if you know where to look. This guide is intended for those permanently
importing a car to England. However, if you are planning on bring a car to the UK temporarily some of the following information may still be useful.
This site is the result of my practical experience of having imported a Ford Explorer from Texas to the UK in 1998 and a Ford Expedition in April 2004. It has also been updated with comments and feedback from people who have used this guide and provided more information, based on
their own experiences.
The sections on the left take you step by step through the process and provide hints, tips and useful links.
