Pick Put Your Vehicle
Browse through our vast range of vehicle and choose a car for you. If you want one not found there, let us know and our team will scour the UK vehicle market, find one with a similar make and model and contact you.
Viewing the Selection
When we have sourced a vehicle for your will showcase it using images and we will present all the relevant documents of the vehicle for your perusal. You can ask our team any question about our process and about the vehicle during this time.
Confirm the Purchase
Once there is an agreement on the CNF price we will reserve the vehicle and send you a Proforma Invoice (P/I). You can use this to proceed with the payment until then the vehicle will be put on hold and will be taken off the market.
How the Payment Works
We prefer the Letter of Credit method for payments. This way a local bank will hold the payment until you receive the car. Once you have the LC, email us the payment proof. Afterward, we will prepare the car for export.
The Shipping Process
Once we get the LC proof, we will email you an official commercial invoice confirming this. Then we will pack your vehicle on a ship bound for South Africa, using either the RO-RO method or container method. Once the ship leaves the UK we will email notifying you.
The Final Step
The customs clearing process is the last hurdle that you have to cross before getting your car to your hand. You can use one of our agents to help you with it if you require it. Once the clearing process is over and you get your hands on the car, the bank will release the LC payment to us.
