Previously imports needed cash payments to be made in full before the car had left its country of origin. Kenyan consumers can now buy their cars overseas and spread the cost of their import just as you would when using asset finance for a local purchase.

Global car importing is becoming more accessible and this should be celebrated, not halted.
Whilst the internet has made viewing cars easier, the explosion of car websites can make the experience overwhelming. With so many options and multitudes of suppliers, knowing where to begin is a tough. So we have created the MHH International stock list to give you the inside track on the best cars we find everyday in the UK. And the great news is most of them are 20% off the UK cost price.
