Import & Export Cars

Dolphin Shipping provides freight solutions for individual and regular vehicle importers in NZ. We offer multiple sailings a month from all main global ports. With a vast global network, we offer a door-to-door solution.

Prior to importing a vehicle, it’s important to check it meets all NZ road standards. An entry certifier like VINZ assesses whether a vehicle meets NZ road standards before registration. Once you have sourced a vehicle, speaking with an entry certifier is your first step. Next, would be contacting a freight forwarder like Dolphin Shipping, who imports thousands of vehicles each month.
