Any stage in the process of import or export can be done single-handedly by any person. You do not have to employ a customs broker. Having said that, it’s not recommendable to do it on your own. In most cases it will end up being more expensive, and the chances that mistakes occur on the way are greater and they might be costly. It is advisable to hire a licensed customs broker that is acquainted with the bureaucracy and the relevant regulations in every case. A customs broker will know what it takes to bring you your shipment (in this case a private car for you), speedily and legally and without any damages. In order to import a car, beyond the freight aspect, you need to attain a private import license from the Ministry of Transport before ordering the car.
