Importing a car

Recommended Posts

I might be able to come into possession of a Right Hand Drive 2003 VW Golf for free.

We leave Switzerland for Perth in December and I'm checking whether it would fit into our container.  The question is, would a it be worth our while?  We wouldn't have owned it for the "12 months" the Aussie authorities ask for, however the transaction would be free with the current owners, so how could they levy duties etc?

Would like to know people's thoughts on whether it's worthwhile pursuing or not.

Many thanks.

I'm not 100% sure it's worth it, too many hoops and taxes.  I see you've started a thread on our sister site PIO which has had some helpful replies.
