Stress-free import service  

Are you struggling to find the horse truck you want here in New Zealand, or feel those that are available are not value for money and you know there are more choices overseas?  

This is why we now have a new division to our business.  European Horse Trucks.  Specialists in beautifully customised, high spec, luxury horse truck builds and imports for New Zealand clients.


Custom made Horse Trucks

Our speed of delivery sets us apart along with our use of quality UK coachbuilders with a range of style aesthetics and specifications.  We look forward to delivering the truck of your dreams, on time and on budget.

Pricing examples: we can supply a 7.5 tonne, new coach-built truck on a used chassis from $160,000 + GST and a 12 tonne, 4 horse truck from $215,000 + GST.

Remember to plan ahead, from design to delivery will take at least 9 months, so get in touch now to discuss exactly what you need from your next truck.    



COVID-19 has obviously hindered our overseas travel plans but motorhomes are more popular than ever to discover closer to home.   Stock is the major issue for 2022, with many dealers already having sold their 2022 and even 2023 allocations!  However if you are looking for a new motorhome and struggling to find one here, let us know exactly what you are after and will see how savings are stacking up for you.

How we can help you


Kiwis are used to doing things themselves.  But when it comes to complicated processes involved in importing a motorhome or Horse truck such as tax paperwork, shipping, customs, compliance, certifications and so on, why not leave it to us?  You have enough to do planning your adventures.  We work for you.  We provide a flexible service suited to your needs.  We have negotiated trade rates, proven processes and excellent suppliers you can benefit from directly.  For motorhomes we work for a service fee which is largely offset by our discounts and for horse trucks we will give you a fixed price to build and import your truck.  We pride ourselves on our level of service, our responsiveness and our transparent way of doing business.  If importing doesn’t make sense, we will tell you.

'UK Tax Free' purchases

We specialise in “UK tax free” purchases or “VAT qualifying” new or ex-demo motorhomes and horse trucks purchased through companies. As the UK equivalent of GST (VAT) is currently 20% that makes a big difference on your end costs.


We have a great list of preferred motorhome providers that we have worked with before and also quality UK coach builders we have met with in person and selected for you.  Let us know what you need and we will ensure we get you the best price from the best suppliers.


We have worked hard to build a strong relationship with our preferred shipping agent and have negotiated highly competitive shipping rates which you benefit from directly.  Whilst pricing may not be the cheapest in the market, we feel it is worth paying a little more for the best.


Compliance can be complicated.  Do you need a WOF or a COF?  Will your Motorhome comply with all the regulations here – and these rules change fast.  How do you go about getting the necessary certifications for gas and electricals?  Do you need an LT400 for your horse-truck?  Have you heard how hard they are to get now?  Leave it all to us.


We can even deliver your new Motorhome or horse truck to your home when it suits you.  No need to worry about how everything works when you collect it.  Figure it all out at home and at your own pace.  With horse trucks we will provide details videos showing you exactly how everything works.

Recent Testimonials

  • I first met Sally & Lincoln Roberts from European Horse Truck Imports in November 2019 at Equitana.
    I was so impressed with the quality of the build of the truck that they were selling that it gave me the confidence to ask them to facilitate a new build for me from scratch to my bespoke specification.
    Despite the challenges of 2020 with Covid19, nothing was too much trouble and at every stage of the build, Sally kept me informed with progress reports and photos.
    EHTI managed the full import process including customs clearance and compliance, ensuring a smooth handover of my beautiful horse truck.
    It was an amazing experience from start to finish, which was undertaken by Sally and Lincoln with professionalism and great enthusiasm.
    I cannot thank them enough for making my dream come true, and would highly recommend them to anyone considering either buying a horse truck from them or building from scratch.
    Thank you, Sally and Lincoln.
    Kind regards,
    Pauline Colclough

  • I was recommended European Car Imports and was glad of the advice. I thought buying my first motor-home was going to be a daunting task but after consultation with the seller via Sally half the job was done quite effortlessly. During the whole process of the motor-home being fitted out and exported I was kept right in the loop and was able to make changes at any time. On arrival in New Zealand everything was taken care of from documentation, electrical/gas (NZ) fit out warranty, registration, RUC to being picked up at the airport and taken to my motor-home which was ready to be driven away. I was also impressed with the immediate response to any queries I had throughout the process. Also, the money transfers were very simple and the company XE transfers (recommended by Sally) recently came out top by Consumer NZ as having the best rates.  I would use European Car Imports again and highly recommend them. Thank you.Kelvin Quinn, Dunedin. Autoroller 747 (2019)

  • Since getting our European Horse Trucks ‘Element’, we have been absolutely blown away with not only the quality, but also the extraordinary level of service we received. Sally and Lincoln went well above and beyond their required level of care and interest into what exactly I was looking for, and received my truck in record time. Would absolutely recommend these trucks to anyone looking.Eden Johnstone - EHT Element 12 tonne horse truck
  • I absolutely 100% recommend European Car Imports. The service we received from start to finish was impressive; communication is top notch and Sally is lovely to deal with (even with my million of questions I asked along the way). Sally helped source the vehicle we were after. We were limited with price and Sally negotiated a great deal for us. Our reason for importing was to save on cost, and using this particular service has saved us alot of $$. This is the first time we have done anything like this and Sally made the process seamless. Without hesitation, I definitely would use European Car Imports in the future.Katarina, Autoroller 747 (2019)
  • I have been involved in the Motor Trade for some 30 years, and in a former life I exported 180 cars from the USA while living there in the nineties, so I clearly understand the issues involved. I have now imported three cars and a Benimar Motorhome through European Car Imports, and I would have to say that the experience dealing with Melissa, Sally and Lincoln has been a delight. Their communication is prompt, honest and clear, and they have performed exactly as expected. I would not hesitate to recommend their service to anyone contemplating it, and given the low value of the GBP right now, there are significant cost savings to be had, not to mention the variety of choice and specification.Grant Aitken Motorsport, Queenstown.
