PostSubject: Land Rover Defenders for EVERYONE   Wed May 25, 2011 12:16 pm

So my friend who is in the Royal Army over in England just bought a '85 110 RHD 5spd with the bench seats in the back and soft top. We are trying to figure out how to get it over here and sorted out. If this works out and we line up a buyer, we can do this on demand. He is willing to pick them up and drive them to the seaport to have them loaded on the boat for a small fee. I know i'm going to get one for myself. All of these trucks are Ex-MOD.

The final cost after purchase of the truck, shipping, taxes at the port, registration of the vehicle to the US, and his fee should come out to about $8,000 - $10,000 depending on a few variable including shipping port location, cost of the vehicle etc. etc.

He is going to snap some pictures of the first truck when he picks it up this weekend.

Have you contacted Dividing Creek Imports? Doug has quite a bit of experience importing Defenders, and usually personally delivers them behind his D 130. Very Happy

Talk to Mongo on Dweb, he just brought in a 130. There's a shitload of forms to do, unless you pay an importer/exporter. Otherwise just drive it into a 20ft shipping container, easiest way.

If you want to see a real-life example in real time, this will give you a good idea.

as will this, which was imported just a few weeks ago. Starting on page 3 of a nice cheaply bought Defender from the UK and then imported over here. Both examples were through Doug...man he should start paying me for this! haha.

It's still a land rover - you're still going to have to put money into it.
