Whenever you need to ship a car to another country, the immediate thought that goes through your mind is the price. Shipping a car from the U.S. to another country is actually reasonable and very cost effective.
So, if you need to ship a car to Bangladesh, there’s only one way to find out the exact cost. You must get a quote from a reliable international transport company by providing them with specific information.
There are certain things that are taken into consideration when you go to receive a quote from a shipping company. The car, the weight being transported, the shipping services being used, and the distance of travel are all major factors that affect the cost of shipping. Not to mention, you will also have taxes and duties owed to Bangladesh before the car can even gain import approval from Customs.
Import Duties and Taxes.
The import duties and taxes for Bangladesh aren’t nearly as high as they could be. The import duty rate is determined by engine capacity and a private car with a 1500cc is held at 25%. The VAT is 15% and luxury vehicle taxes may be as high as 33%. Contact the Embassy of Bangladesh to find out what the current import rates are set at. Also, ask about vehicle restrictions in the import policy. The embassy can be very helpful.
Shipping Service Costs.
The cost of shipping services varies, but it is known that some services are cheaper than others. Although there is a difference in the costs of these services, all of them are secure forms of transport. RO/RO shipping is an open air service that is less expensive than its alternative, container shipping. When you purchase shipping services, your car is protected under the transporter’s insurance policy, assuring its safe delivery.
