We know importing vehicles from other countries can be a difficult and stressful experience. Let our team of experts walk you through the process, or take care of the import process on our own.
If you are going to be importing in mass, we can also work directly with overseas manufacturers to educate them on the USA requirements for NHTSA, FMVSS, DOT, and local or state regulations. This will ensure smooth import across the borders.
Imported motor vehicles are subject to safety standards under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, revised under the Imported Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988; to bumper standards under the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act of 1972, which became effective in 1978; and to air pollution control standards under the Clean Air Act of 1968, as amended in 1977, and 1990.
If vehicles manufactured abroad conform to U.S. safety, bumper, and emission standards, it is because these vehicles are exported for sale in the United States. Therefore, it is unlikely that a vehicle obtained abroad meets all relevant standards. Be skeptical of claims by a foreign dealer or other seller that a vehicle meets these standards or can readily be brought into compliance. Vehicles entering the United States that do not conform with U.S. safety standards must be brought into compliance, exported, or destroyed.
We can explain the documentation, vehicle preparation process (including cleaning for the US Dept. of Agriculture to prevent transmission of dangerous pests and plants), emissions standards for the EPA, and dutiable equipment.
Even if your vehicle is not currently compliant, we have the knowledge, equipment, and manpower to modify the vehicle to meet US compliance standards.
