Pickup and delivery considerations (i.e. door to door or port to port delivery) are an additional transport and budget consideration. Where the hire of a shipping container is required, shippers commonly opt to drop-off the vehicle at an agreed packing location for onward delivery to port. Similar considerations are required at destination.
Transport timeframes can vary from just a few days (between New Zealand and Australia) to a month (New Zealand to Europe) depending on origin and destination, service availability and transshipment requirements (transfer cargo from one ship to another at port for onward sailing).
Some tax exemptions are available depending on the country. For example, in New Zealand non-commercial vehicle importers may be asked to sign a deed agreeing not to sell the vehicle for at least two years to avoid Goods and Services Tax (GST).
