Advise VAT charges importing car

I am thinking of importing a 2008 or 2009 1.8l toyota. For those who imported their car, I need your advise. Generally how did you go about it and was it worth compared to buying locally? Which dealer can you recommend? What was percentage increase in price after paying VAT?

I’d recommend some chap I used called @wheelz. Stress free imports.


What was your experience

Just look for duty calculator online

Thank you, that is good cash worth saving

“shaka”,my two cents though,when u import unasave a 100 to 150k,

Toyota wish it’s not a long lasting car,if it’s a family car that u are looking for endea the new shape Nissan wing road,it’s so much better & it will cost u less money in comparison to wish,

If u decide to import,tafuta a 2009 model,

Value ya wish nitakupa kesho


hate cars but i would avoid the importation hassle cost and vat notwithstanding.
just go to the local dealers and check out a nice ride depending on how much you know about cars
