Import Car Models from North America

April 1, 2012 the Ministry of Transportation in Israel expanded the admissible import car models criteria to include vehicles meeting American standards. Included also will be US standard compliant cars that are manufactured outside North America.

The US is a large and lucrative market; therefore vehicles manufactured outside its borders, for instance Japan, are sold in the US cheaper than in their country of origin. You may now take advantage of this savings here in Israel.

For the Record

Nationally new car sales in Israel, including personal imports, rose 4% in 2011 according to a 15-4-2012 report in Globes. We believe this legislation change will enable personal import car models to increase its market share percentage of new car sales in the months and years to come. In fact July 2012 Ianglo experienced a 92% increase of American import orders over last year.

Word is getting out, there is money to be saved and importing is not as complicated as some would have you believe; now you can easily help a car make Aliyah too.

What Makes iAnglo's Program Different?

If you request a consultation iAnglo will first make sure that you are a good candidate for importing, not everyone or every car is. A lot information out there, especially information pertaining to Aliyah benefits, is incorrect regarding importing; many times its preferable to buy or lease locally. If it becomes evident that importing is right for you then we will put you in touch with the service providers who can make it happen. Here are a couple videos from customers who came to us for guidance.

Pay as You Go

If you need to buy a car to import, you will work one on one with a buyer in the US who understands what cars can and cannot come into Israel, and the charge for this acquisition assistance is $999 per vehicle. This way you know exactly what you are paying for the car just as if you were there at the dealership. Once you have chosen a car and the inspections have been finished you will pay the selling dealer directly. The service provider for the purchase, can help you with new or used cars, including estimations on your taxes.

The buyers that will assist you are active in the car business in both dealer franchises and the independent wholesale market. You will not be limited to east coast purchases where most cars that are imported by local Israeli companies come from. Some of the buyers are in Texas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, and Florida. If you already own the car that you want to import this step is eliminated; but you too will need help in the next phase, shipping and customs clearing.

Here in Israel you will work directly with the customs clearance provider. They will assist you in arranging the shipping and of course assist you in getting the car cleared and ready to drive; you will be guided all the way to the end of arranging the security system your insurance company will require -- it's called "keys in hand."

They also will accompany you to the tax offices where the final amount of taxes owed will be assessed and you will pay this directly to the customs clearer. We believe this to be the most transparent way so you know where every shekel goes.
