Looking into exporting used cars to South Africa


I have an intrest in exporting used cars to Soth Africa, I have investigated the market for this service, and the viability of the venture has excellent prospects. I am looking for any information and direction as to achieve this ambition. I don’t have any experience in exporting so will be attentive to any and all persons of response.


UKTI can be of help in many ways.
Some are free and some are at a charge.
In order to better address your needs, i need to know where are you based and if your turnover is less or more than £25M?
Looking forward to hearing from you.

There Mohmed

Thanks for asking the question and I hope you are well.
So I can provide you with the best answer, please can you provide the following information;
– How old are the cars?
– How long have they been owned and who currently owns them?
– Can you provide a recent MOT or service to confirm they are not going for scrap?
– Can they be delivered with next to no fuel and disconnected from the battery?

Lots of questions, but with the answers we will be able to provide you with all the information you need.

If there is anything else I can do for you please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many Thanks and Kind Regards
