You can’t possibly ship your car to Botswana overnight. There is a lot needed to assure a successful transport anywhere overseas.
Professional international shipping companies have all that they need to safely ship your car outside of the United States. When you find a transporter ask them about their shipping services or check out their website to see what they have to offer.
In most cases, the transporter will suggest two methods of delivery, container, and open air shipping. Among those two popular transport methods are a variety of optional services offered. They’re designed to make the process of shipping even less strenuous. A customer service representative for the international transporter will gladly help you choose the right services for your car’s transport across the ocean.
Optional Transport Services for a Stress-Free Delivery.
After deciding on what transport method to use, consider any other services that might help your shipping process. Make sure there is room in your budget, although shipping services are offered at low rates year round. You must also remember to pay the country’s import taxes before the car can lawfully cross the border. The Embassy of Botswana can give you the exact import rates when you call them to inquire about foreign import laws.
- Door to Door.
- Terminal to Terminal.
- Guaranteed Delivery.
- Expedited Delivery.
- Free Insurance Coverage.
- Free Real-Time Tracking Services.
- Custom Transport Solutions.
Of course, you’ll see a number of optional services as you scroll through each transporter’s website or call around inquiring. If you have any questions for the transporter, don’t hesitate to ask. Their knowledge of the industry and foreign law makes it easier for them to assist customers with no prior experience.
