Not everyone has experience with transporting an automobile overseas, but there are companies that make it possible. Find one with a great reputation and a history in the international shipping industry.
Then, book your car’s transport and begin preparing.
Make sure to document any damages to the vehicle and to leave the gas tank less than a ¼ full. Don’t forget to remove any valuables, and have the car serviced prior to its scheduled ship date. Certain documentation will need to be provided to Customs before the shipping process can occur. The Embassy of Angola can give you the current import policy regulations if you give them a call.
The First Steps to Having a Car Delivered in Angola.
- Contact a reputable automotive shipping service - The DOT database can provide information about the legitimacy of the company you are considering.
- Discuss a quote - Shipping services can determine how much transporting your vehicle will cost through information such as distance, weight and the type of vehicle.
- Prepare necessary documentation - In order for a shipping service to process a transaction, the customer must provide certain information. Your license, passport, registration, title and the exact dimensions of your vehicle are required.
Typically, shipping companies can ship a car to Angola in two ways. These ways include container shipping and the RO/RO method. A representative for the shipping company will be able to help you select a transport method that will best suit your needs. Larger vehicles might be subjected to an oversize fee.
Avoid contacting the shipping service on short notice because you will be subject much higher fees for deadline jobs. It’s recommended to reach the company at least two weeks in advance so that you not only save money but so you can prepare for the shipping process. You can expect a ship date at their earliest convenience but they will accommodate your schedule as much as possible.
