International auto transport companies are situated nearly everywhere in the world. Any reputable transporter with experience in the industry will have a great understanding of foreign import policies.
As a transport service for automobiles, they’ll also have the equipment and ships necessary to haul the car safely across the water to reach its destination.
Not everyone thinks to call up a certified shipping company to transport your car to Somalia during their relocation because they’re usually afraid of the costs. Auto transport services are cost effective and very reasonably priced. It’s in your best interest to hire professionals to supervise the transport.
What Is the Cheapest Way to Ship My Car to Somalia?
The least expensive way to ship a car to Somalia is through open air transport services. The term more commonly used for open air shipping is RO/RO transport. 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 in and near the nation accept RO/RO transport services. If not, your shipping professionals will have other suggestions or they’ll have the car retrieved at the port and hauled by land to its destination.
Pay Import Duties and Tariffs.
Professional auto shipping services are inexpensive, but what can easily increase the cost of your transport are the import tariffs and duties charged by the country the car is delivered to. Each country sets their tax rates as they do their import regulations. Reach the Embassy of Somalia by phone to learn what rates you must pay to have your car exported from the United States.
