Transporting a car from the United States to Mali isn’t at all that difficult. International auto transport companies exist all throughout the nation. Any reputable transporter will have experience in the industry and a great understanding of foreign import laws.
They will also have all of the equipment needed for a safe delivery, as well as the vessel to secure the cars aboard as they ship off to Mali.
Since the country of Mali has lenient import policies, there is nothing to really worry about. Not everyone thinks to call up a professional shipping company for a vehicle transport because they’re afraid of what it might cost. Auto transport services are cost effective and very reasonably priced. If the vehicle is to ship overseas or even across the country, it is almost always to your greatest advantage to hiring professionals.
What Is the Cheapest Way to Ship My Car to Mali?
The absolute cheapest way to ship a car to Mali is through open air shipping services. The term more commonly used for open air transport is RO/RO shipping. This means that the car essentially rolls onto and off of the ship it boards for its delivery. Of course, the car is secured during its journey with the transport company.
Although RO/RO transport leaves the car open to the possibility of poor weather conditions, this shipping method is known for its reliability. With the transporter’s insurance coverage, you can rest assured that your vehicle is protected no matter what. Before buying open air services, make sure the ports near Mali accept imports this way.
Import Duties and Tariffs.
Professional auto shipping services are inexpensive, but what can ring up the cost of shipping are the import taxes charged by the country the car is delivered to. Some countries aren’t as demanding on the pocketbook. Unless you are a diplomat in Mali, expect to pay at least 40% of the vehicle’s value in import duties. Call the Embassy of Mali to find out what the precise rates are at the time of your car’s transport.
