Thread: How long to get a VRT quote when not on the calculator

    How long to get a VRT quote when not on the calculator

    Hi guys, wondering if anyone has experience on getting quotes for a car not on the calculator.

    It's the first car I've brought in not on a calculator and I haven't got a quote yet, I've been waiting over a week so far.

    Also wondering how people go about appeals, considering I've never seen one for sale in Ireland in the past.

    3 to 4 weeks if it's something unusual. They don't care how tight that leaves you to running over the 30 days; that's your problem. The appeal process is well documented on the revenue site. You pay the VRT they quote you, and then you write a letter (yes, a fuccking letter on paper) to them asking for some of it back, outlining why you believe the OMSP was wrong, along with supporting information. It's fairly straightforward, just laborious. Don't expect reason or logic to prevail. Set your expectations low.

    Thanks for that, guess I'll just prepare to get screwed so.

    I'd start writing it out now, rather than putting it on the long finger.

    Ha, Whilst talk of not seeing one on the Irish market makes it seem exotic it's fairly pedestrian, just haven't seen the same trim and engine combo over here.

    Ah you might be ok so. It’ll still take a while as they are busy but quote wont be a million miles from what you’re expecting.

    They seem to be processing VRT inspections quite quickly now. I presented a specialist car ( Aston Martin DBS ) for VRT inspection on Sep 23rd. I went online on 11th and that was the soonest date I could get. They were back to me on 27th with a number..mind you the number was/is painful!!

    Can't get a figure in my head myself, theirs the one I'm afraid of, the one I think is fair and the one I'll be happy with

    That was a very quick turnaround on a proper specialist car, wonder why mine is taking so long. It's a 1 series coupe with a 35i engine but thinking back the person behind the desk wrote M Sport all over the sheet, hope I don't get a 1M quote now I think my number will be easier to stomach than yours...hopefully
