Our Services

Making sense of customs requirements, import taxes, compliance requirements, Australian Design Rules, Queensland transport is as easy as learning Chinese.

Our turn key service will save you from having to learn a new language. We will do all the leg work which start from when your vehicle is released from Customs until we hand you the keys to your vehicle, ready for you to take it for its first Australian trip.

Note: we are based in Queensland and will register your vehicle in Queensland. If you aren’t moving to Queensland, please contact us for a list of recommended companies like our in other states.

I rang customs, Queensland transport and couldn’t get a straight answer with regards to how to calculate the value of my car before shipping it. It was just getting into the too hard basket despite me having got the time to do all the steps.

Kent and Roxy made things so easy for me and saved me hours of wasted time and dollars.
