Can I really buy from Japan or the UK today?
You are no longer restricted to buying the cars from the local forecourts. MHH International will find your dream car by searching across our UK and Japanese trade network of trusted suppliers. We will scrutinise both markets to find you the best options available giving you the confidence that you are choosing from the best selection of cars possible. Once the bank have given you their loan pre-approval, all you need a 20% deposit to secure your car. No additional security is required. And once you’ve completed your payments on your loan, the car is completely yours.
Can I use my current bank?
We have two premier finance partnerships with whom we work very closely: NIC and The Co-operative Bank. We also have agreements in place with many additional major banks to offer asset finance for your purchase. These include CFC, I&M & CBA Dtb. Simply call us to enquire about your preferred bank if they are not mentioned here.

Your Questions Answered.
How long does it take to import a car from the UK?
A typical purchase takes 60 days from the day that the deposit is received to you receiving your keys. Approximately half of this time is the shipping time for the boat to reach Mombasa. The remainder allows for your car to be fully inspected and prepared prior to shipment and then cleared through customs on arrival and transported and prepared for your collection.
Can I buy a car from another supplier and still get my finance from my local Kenyan Bank?
MHH International is happy for you to locate your car from another UK supplier. MHH will then inspect and purchase the vehicle on your behalf, ensuring that your car is of the highest quality, prior to shipping it to Kenya. For Japanese purchases, we would refer your request to our agent to ensure the car you have found meets our quality control standards.
How do I know that I can trust MHH International?
MHH International has been importing vehicles to Kenya for over 5 years. We have now been selected by a number of leading Kenyan banks to be their sole UK importer of vehicles owing to the consistency in the quality of our cars, the reliability of the service and the expertise of our team.
Who do I contact to get my car purchase started?
Simply enquire via the MHH form on our website. One of the sales team will be in touch very quickly to discuss your needs. Your bank will require their usual paperwork to approve your asset finance application once you've shortlisted a car with MHH.
What if MHH does not have an agreement with my preferred bank?
Please call us and we can discuss this with you. We're always willing to approach your bank to find out if they would be willing to support the UK import market.
When do I start paying interest on my loan?
When the final loan agreement paperwork is completed between you and your bank. This is typically 2-3 days prior to you receiving your car.
When do I start to repay my loan?
Your bank will discuss this with you and arrange your preferred loan repayment date.
When does the deposit get paid?
The deposit is required to secure your vehicle from being sold to another customer. Typically MHH International will require the deposit once a suitable vehicle has been chosen and the loan offer letter has been issued by your bank.
Who do I pay the deposit to?
Deposits are payable to the MHH International bank account held with your bank.
Who is the registered owner of the vehicle?
Your vehicle is jointly registered in both your name and your bank's until the loan is paid off in full. Once you have completed all loan payments, the vehicle is transferred to you as the sole owner.
Do MHH have an office in Kenya?
Yes we do. Please come and meet our team in Westlands, Nairobi. We would be delighted to meet you and help you to import your next car. Our address is: 4th Floor, The Pavilion, Lower Kabete Road, Nairobi.
How can I be confident that the mileage on my car has not been tampered with?
All MHH International cars must pass our independent inspections. One of which is a check against the national mileage register or mileage certificate to identify any irregularities against a vehicle.
Do I have a warranty on my car?
MHH gives 3 months warranty on all cars purchased using asset finance.
Am I required to have a tracker on the vehicle?
Yes. The bank requires you to have a tracker installed. This is arranged automatically as part of the service and is invoiced to you separately to the car. Prices start at KSh 45,000.
