How to get left hand drive buyers UK?
Both new and used cars are expensive in Portugal, and in other European countries like Spain and France for that matter – so people buy LHD cars in the UK and import them to Portugal to save money.
There are advantages to this, like buying a second-hand LHD car in the UK is cheaper than in Portugal. While there are specialist LHD dealers in England, it’s still a pretty niche market. Expats and continental Europeans move to the UK for work, which accounts for a lot of LHD cars coming into the UK. In both cases, the sellers are usually trying to sell the car so that they can buy a right-hand drive.
A downside, though, is the difficulty (and cost) of importing the car. You can read more about this in another article, but the main point here is you should consider how much it would cost to import a car vs. buying one in Portugal.
Why buying in the UK is good for you?
There are more advantages if you don’t want to use tongs in France and choose to buy a left hand drive car before moving there. First, there’s the financial part: you can usually trade in your RHD for a left-hand drive in UK dealerships. As a result, my 2 and 3 in my list above might preclude this because it’s pretty unlikely you’ll be able to sell your RHD car to a French dealer since their customers are French and not used to driving RHDs.
There’s also a cost involved when buying from a UK dealer and having the car delivered instead of driving it. It’s probably more than £500.
What to look for when buying an LHD vehicle in the UK
