Importing your own Car, like this Lamborghini Gallardo SE, is made easy with Fabcar.

Fabcar has been importing cars from around the world for over 40 years!
Using our efficient systematic process combined with long established contacts – we are able to assist with as much or as little required when looking to bring in your own vehicle.

We have gained a vast wealth of knowledge over the years and provide a number of import options to the general public:

  • – Importing eligible vehicles on the SEVS register through our RAWS workshops – 
  • – Importing of all pre- 1989 build vehicles – 
  • – Assisting with personal imports for people migrating to Australia –
  • – Hosting of import workshops in preparation for the anticipated future changes in regulations –

Our RAWS workshop specialises with the importation and compliance of:

  • – Lamborghini Gallardo & Murcielago
  • – Ferrari 360 (Modena, Spider & Challenge Stradale)
  • – Maserati Coupe (4200, Spider, Gransport)
  • – Mazda RX-7
  • – Mitsubishi EVO VIII
  • – Infiniti Vehicles (pre 2012)
  • – Nissan Skyline GTR (R32 & R34)
  • – Toyota Vellfire & Alphard

Fabcar has summarised this process into 7 simple steps…..


The first step is the most important one – which car do you desire? From deciding off the list of eligible cars, we can assist with everything from sourcing your new vehicle to handing over the keys on collection day ready to drive away.


Now we need to establish further details such as desired colour(s), transmission, options, mileage and of course budget.


We conduct an initial preliminary search contacting our contacts globally and start looking for potential vehicles that fit your requirements.
Keeping you up to date along the way we send through any details and pictures of suitable vehicles.


It’s around this stage we seek a deposit to secure your interest and commitment in purchasing a vehicle from us. This is of course fully refundable if we do not successfully find a suitable vehicle!

At the time of receiving a deposit, we also provide you with a contractual agreement explaining the full process to provide a level of cover and assurance for both parties.

What we quote is the final cost! No hidden figures, everything in black and white, so you know exactly what your in for!


After finding the right car for you, we arrange to have it checked prior to purchase before proceeding to book the transport and shipping to Perth. We cover all of the costs from here and just require balance of payment prior to collection

From this point, all you have to do is relax and leave the rest to us!

  • Fabcar will deal with all the import and customs paperwork, quarantine inspections, collection of your new vehicle and transferring back to our headquarters.
  • We sort all further paperwork, carry out the compliance process and get the car inspected and registered with number plates ready for handing over the keys.
  • Typical lead time from finding your car to you receiving it, is around 8-10 weeks. This of course can be a little less or more depending on the variables throughout the process.
  • If you’d like to view your vehicle when it has arrived at the Fabcar yard then just get in touch to arrange a viewing!
  • We’ll keep you updated throughout the whole process, so you know how everything is going with your import


Collection day has almost arrived and it usually comes around a lot sooner then you’d expect!
This is the stage that we ask for remainder of balance to be settled.


THE BIG DAY! Congratulations! You have successfully imported your own car!
It’s now time to collect the keys and enjoy your first drive into the Perth streets in your very own Fabcar!


Importing a vehicle through Fabcar not only saves you both time and money but also eliminates the associated hassles and risk involved when importing from overseas. We appreciate it can be quite a daunting task but its one we are very use to and execute on a monthly basis!
