Complete assistance for importing a car to Gran Canaria is essential.
Shipping a car to Gran Canaria and all the documents and costs related to the import of your car in Gran Canaria is a complex practice that requires a guide.
Are you wondering if it behoves to ship your car?
Consider that evaluating the purchase of second-hand cars in Gran Canaria may not always be the most economical solution. Hence it can often be cheaper to ship your car, even if there are many costs when you import a car to Gran Canaria.
.. and so, how to understand which is the best choice?
First of all,
It is good to consider carefully these costs. In particular, the first thing to know is that when you import goods to Gran Canaria, they are not considered part of Spain. Hence its importance for import taxes.
In Spain, for some goods, it is not necessary to pay import taxes. But for Gran Canaria, there are different rules in force. They vary depending on the value of the car and your residence at the time of the request.
Most noteworthy, If you live in Gran Canaria, you can import the goods without paying the import tax. However, you will need to present documentation to the local authority to show that you are not a tourist but a resident.
This, together with the documents required for customs clearance, will allow you to obtain an exemption from the import tax.
And after shipping?
Once your car is imported, you must remember that you are authorized to drive it for up to 6 months. Before changing it to Spanish licence plates.
If the licence plates are not changed within 6 months, as a result, you will have to pay additional costs.
Also for the new registration, there are additional costs such as the revisión through the ITV.
N.B. Please note that once the car has been registered in Gran Canaria, it is necessary to remember to cancel the old plate to avoid paying a double property tax.
