Upon arrival in the US, all vehicles must be cleared through US Customs.
Most importers are required to pay an import tax, usually 2.5%. In addition, a customs entry bond equal to the vehicle value, as well as a DOT conformance bond equal to 1.5 times the vehicle value, must be posted. These bonds are included in our conversion agreements along with the required DOT eligibility fee.
Mesa Auto Wholesalers coordinates the entry with a broker and oversees the filing of all necessary DOT declaration forms with customs.
After customs has released the vehicle, Mesa Auto Wholesalers makes the arrangements to transport the vehicle from customs to our facility.
All charges related to the issues discussed above are included in the "Import and Carriage Agreement"
