Importing used japanese vehicles to Ireland

Importing used Japanese vehicles from Japan has long been a niche market in Ireland, and we can supply unusual Japanese makes not available in Ireland as well as more famous Japanese sports cars such as the Nissan Skyline or the Lancer Evolution.

Importing into Ireland is easy. Please see below for more info:

Recommended ports

Dublin is the most convenient port for Ireland. Ships leave once a month and take about 4 weeks to get there.

Clearance and delivery from the destination port

We recommend that you use a customs clearance agent to clear your vehicle through customs. Please find a reliable agent at your local port. There will be several companies that specialize in the import of used Japanese vehicles.

Inspections and local regulations

There are no major restrictions regarding imports of used Japanese vehicles for Ireland, although you need to make sure you follow the correct procedure for registering your car. Your clearance agent will be able to assist you with this.

Why import used cars from Japan?

Importing from Japan can save you money, and generally you will get a higher spec vehicle than would be available in Ireland. This is particularly true for sports cars as Japanese models generally have better quality parts fitted giving higher performance. You can also get models that aren't available on the Irish market.
