Hello I am Ross
« on: 14:40 17-Jul-2017 »
I live in England. I have not been to the Ukraine yet. I have been to Hungary as my brother lives in Budapest. I have joined the site to hopefully find some information about buying a used car in the Ukraine and importing it to the UK.

First off, Welcome... second, this is Ukraine we are not a river so "the" is not needed...... third, why would you want to buy a car here. A Lada run over by a transport here has more value than a new Bentley where you live. Why would you want to buy a car here?

Ross, stick with Germany if you really want to import a car to the UK. Ukrainian prices will damage your eyesight.

This is the best source - just enter Germany in the dropdown.

Ross, buying a used car in Ukraine and taking it to the UK is generally a bad idea.  Generally --

Price will be double if not triple.  Add in transport and other expenses.

Left-hand drive vs Right-hand drive.

Ukrainian cars often have fictitious Km and service records.

But maybe it's some Soviet speciality car you're after.   Don't know.  General advice.

Ross you're a boss.  Stay happy brother.
