    Default Dominican Aduanas Question for Car

    I have a group of friends that have identified a 2015 Toyota van they would like to purchase and subsequently donate to a needy family here in the Santiago area. I've agreed to help them in this process and have learned that it is a "rebuilt" title. I know "Salvage" titles are not allowed to be imported - but several at SeaBoard believe that "rebuilt" titles are indeed allowed into the country. Is this true (because I don't want to get into problems with Aduanas) and if so where could I find some documentation or law (etc.) on this online within Aduanas? Thanks in advance for your advice.

    That's a very nice gift for a "needy" family.

    Your friends are aware of the shipping costs and taxes and associated charges it will cost, right?

    Already got my popcorn.

    I'm guessing he's talking about a Sienna. Pretty sure the HiAce and the Lite aren't available up there.

    A 2015 Sienna has got to be around 25 grand, wouldn't it?

    BTW, Sorry for not addressing the "rebuilt" versus "salvage" but I'd be nervous about it.

    I'd be looking at locally available first before I'd import.

    Yes its a beautiful "rebuilt" red Sienna. The Sienna is being purchased "rebuilt" for $8,500 - a far cry from 25,000. And yes Im nervous about rebuilt - thus the reason I cam to dr1.com You guys are notorious for tracking down this type of information. Its not up to me to buy locally - far easier for me to do. It up to me to be grateful for them helping this family out.

    I imported a 40 passenger air conditioned diesel bus 2 years ago for a poor church in the Santiago area and Aduanas was gracious enough not to charge import taxes. Large is in the eye of the beholder I guess
