Re: Business registration plates for imported van?

Re: Business registration plates for imported van?

Your dead right with that Warwick .. dealers generally don't register cars until they have a buyer 12 years ago ...when I bought our truck , I test drove it on trade plates as it had no greek papers or number plates 'cos the dealer had bought it in Germany . I paid a deposit and agreed a time to mee...

Re: Business registration plates for imported van?

I was asked for twelve thousand euros for my old but still in good nick Volvo estate when I tried to import 12 years ago ....have the rules changed ? I was also told then that yo...

Re: Business registration plates for imported van?

I would get the dealer to do the paperwork for you as the importation of vehicles into Greece can be a minefield.. ,you get so many conflicting reports from different sources...Have the import duties been paid?.....
