Zimbabwe Export


Exporting used cars to Zimbabwe

Beck Evans is a specialist in arranging shipment of vehicles from the UK to a range of locations globally, including Zimbabwe

You will find a fantastic selection of used cars and vans at our showroom in Kent and listed on our website. However, if we do not have the perfect model for you in stock, we will offer to source it for you within our network of dealers, traders, ex-fleet providers and manufacturers as part of our vehicle sourcing service.

If you wish to export commercial vehicles to Zimbabwe from the UK, we will tailor our service to your needs. Similarly, if you already have your eye on a motor at another retailer which does not export, we will still be able to arrange shipment and can help with VAT Reclaim.

We work with experienced shipping companies who we trust to deliver the vehicles that we provide in Zimbabwe on time and in the same excellent condition that we send them in. Any official documentation that you'll need will be sent before your vehicle arrives, so the only thing left to do will be to drive your motor home.

Our pre-export testing procedures are conducted by an expert team in our own workshop, where any bespoke vehicle work you request can also be done. The following are the optional additions that you can choose from: Privacy glass, Side steps, Paint work, Leather seats, Roof rails and Roof boxes. You can find out more about exporting a car from the UK here.
