I don't know about the NZ market, but here in the US something like that would be all but impossible -- the licenced dealer system in the States is heavily entrenched and protected to the point that trying to make any money in cars is all but impossible, without being a licenced dealer.

The principal supply chain on new cars in the US is directly from the manufacturers, and of course this tends to be exclusively to authorised dealerships of the brands. For used cars, the main supplier is actually the trade-in market, with wholesale auctions following close behind. But of course to get into the wholesale auctions, one typically needs to be a licenced dealer or a guest of same.

Well this one is certainly something different lol

What you are essentially talking about is importing motor vehicles from the US, and yes you can of course do that as a private individual or as a business entity for resale.

I imported a mustang many years ago, although that was for personal use and it was relatively straight forward. I haven't been keeping up with the Kiwi dollar of late, but with the US economy in it's current form and the aussie dollar at it's peak against the Greenback, importing from the US into Australia is as popular as ever.

That's not just cars of course, it's pretty much across the board. I've been considering boats of late personally lol

There are people based in the US who will source products for you, namely cars, and arrange for the import of the vehicle to NZ, however these transactions are all up front cash, so you would need to bank-roll it.

You would also need to know the type of vehicles to import and know the market your end so you understand the value of what it is you would be importing.

That aside, then you need to be aware of your import taxes, and I would suggest retain a customs clearance agent to ensure all runs smooth.

If it's a market you don't understand, then I would strongly suggest staying clear, as you are taking about out-laying decent amount of cash.

In regards to if we have anyone in the directory that offers this type of service, I don 't personally know, but would highly doubt it, but these types of people aren't that hard to find if you know where to look.

Hi William,

Just by visiting the site I think Marc's right, the process is a bit complicated so be sure you truly understand the works of how you can import a car into NZ - Link hidden: Login to view

All the best!

Perhaps I didn't understand the OP, but William, if you're just looking for a Stateside party to act as a source on US cars to be shipped abroad, I actually can connect you with someone. We used to ship cars to Australia years ago, there was a gaping demand for Dodge Vipers and buyers were paying obscene premiums on the cars -- there was no real need for "wholesale" prices per se, since we were just buying them up as fast as we could get our hands on them and shipping them to Oz for immediate profit.

Oh god, now I'm all nostalgic and misty-eyed thinking of all that money. Sigh.

I thunk you understood Williams inquiry pretty well, I just broke it down to the bare essentials lol

Wipe away those misty eyes Frank, that market is still here and more alive than ever. With the dollar up against the Greenback and prices low your end, people are jumping in because they will never get a better time to buy.

Now if you have the know how that end and you are looking for an Australian end, hit me up, that's something I could seriously enjoy getting involved in : )
