    How do I import a car from Southern Ireland?

    I've tried googling this one but am even more confused now, seems a mine field!
    I want to import a relatives car from Southern Ireland to the UK, it's only a run of the mill 8 year old car but as this person doesn't want it any more they said I could have it.
    I've been trying to find out how to go about it so I've got all the necessary paperwork but am getting completely lost...
    I know the car is in good condition and insured but the tax has run out.
    Any advice much appreciated.

    As the car is under 10 years old you'll need an ]SVA, not sure on prices but my brother did the same a couple of years back and it cost him about £300 after a garage did some prep work for him. Spur of the moment with him, thinking he could just drive it over on the ferry lol

    Oh, plus then you need to register it for tax, pay import vat and insure it of course. Then he popped back over after it was all done and drove it home

    Thanks for that, I don't think the car is worth more thanbout £1500 any idea how much all the things involved would cost?
