    Hi Steve

    Haven't personally had any dealings with Powervehicles as far as i'm aware they are pretty reputable and have been around a while its worth nothing whilst most of the cars are heavily modified most of their vehicles are damage repaired or have had a "life" prior to export so i would always err on the side of caution like you would with any other car from Japan.

    Regarding the cost as a general rule of thumb you have the vehicle cost + RORO shipping this will be around 700-900 for an average sized vehicle like a JZX chassis, import duty & tax roughly come to around 30% the car cost and shipping combined. most ports will offer customs clearance services each port is different but they usually charge between £50-£100 for this service

    I imported my s15 from japan via JAPWESTMODS , they have been a wonderful bunch to deal with . I was intially considering powervehicles but the entire process this side of the world i felt may have become complicated should things not move smoothly .

    Our cost to do FOB for RORO is 80,000 Yen.

    But on the U.K side, yes using a agent who can the help on import/tax/reg is good to help you along.
