R34 import process and prices

Postby datechboss101 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 5:57 pm

I got some plans on importing an R34 soon to use as a weekend car, when the 25 year limit is up (in 4 years) and wanted to know whats the price after the entire process and what is the import process?

There's lots of information on this. Especially in the last few years as the R32 finally became importable. There's extra expense if you're in California, but the others states are all the same. Did you search the forum? Did you read the stickies at the top of the forums? The first one is "So you want to buy a Skyline in the US" and here's a link: so-you-want-to-buy-a-skyline-in-the-us-t159216.html

There are several importers you can work with as well as the option to buy one already imported.

I just did some Google search only, and haven't done any search on this forum at all, LOL :rotfl :facepalm: :inout:

Really informative video on this recently done by Donut Media about the complexities and price of this specific import if you're still trying to figure this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfdwPg8j8R8

As for shipping companies, I can suggest two I've used before from the UK. I've used http://cosdel.com/ and https://www.wcshipping.com/ and I can recommend both. Hope this helps!
