The window to import a car older than 5 years is closing very fast. The deadline for 2012 – 2014 cars to be imported has been set as 1st July 2019. After then car imports must be 5 years or younger. So, if you have been planning on importing a 6 / 7 year old car, you have just this week to buy it from the UK or Japan to be sure the boat will reach Mombasa ahead of the deadline.

Getting the best deal for your money can feel like an overwhelming task when buying an import car. When importing your car, you have the world at your feet, but the work is very involved. These top tips will help you get the best deal on your car. 

  • Avoid importers who have stock. They are going to be targeted on selling you their cars rather than helping you to find the car you really want.
  • Talk to an importer who imports from the UK, Japan and Australia. They are genuinely motivated to find you the best worldwide deal for your dream car and familiar with the best countries for you to buy from.
  • Find a company who will do the work for you. A sourcing company will spend the time to find your perfect car, then you get the hard task of simply choosing which one.
  • Consider value rather than just price. If the car has been well cared for you will be buying well. If the car has been well cared for you will be buying well. Paying for expensive repairs will soon escalate, these key documents will tell you a lot about a car before you buy it. We recommend you insist on seeing them before you buy.

  • One clear price is essential. Make sure your pricing includes all costs, quality insurance, taxes and duties. No one likes surprises but they are often hidden by less reputable companies.
