Import duties for your household items

Though import duty relief is listed as being available for returning citizens - there’s no mention of expats or immigrants. Thus, whether duty exemption is available when relocating to Cape Verde isn’t clear - so contact customs to find out how your shipments will be handled (1).

Paperwork for your household items

Customs will need to see some documentation, before they’ll let your goods into the country. Your Residence Permit, passport and a full packing list must be included in your paperwork. You’ll also need two copies of either your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. An Entry Permit should be inside your passport, and you’ll need to show customs this as well (2).

Import duties for your vehicle

If you’ll be moving to Cape Verde in the near future, and are planning to ship your vehicle along for the ride - then you’re likely curious about import duties. If you are a technician, diplomat or cooperant - then duty-free importation of your personal vehicle is allowed. Otherwise, you’ll be required to pay the standard import taxes and duties. The precise rate is based upon the specifics of your vehicle - and you can contact your destination agent (or even customs) to learn more beforehand (3).

Paperwork for your vehicle

Before customs will clear your shipment, you’ll need to provide some paperwork. This includes your passport, Social Security card and a Power of Attorney. This last document gives your agent or shipping company (such as A1 Auto Transport), permission to help your shipment move through the clearance process. The title for the vehicle and proof of insurance coverage are also required. Finally, you’ll need to show customs a valid driver’s license (4).

It’s always prudent to speak both with customs and your destination agent, prior to shipping off your belongings to a faraway country. This ensures that you know all the applicable regulations and filing requirements - so you don’t miss any important steps along the way.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Even with a good moving company, international moves are not easy. Here are some tips to make your life easier during the moving process:

  • Only ship the things you can’t do without and do not fill up your bags with things you can purchase in Cape Verde.
  • Plan your move early so that you can have ample time to say goodbye to loved ones and to address any problems that might occur during the move.
  • A move to a new country will require you to produce some documents. Apply for these documents early and make sure that you have them within reach.
  • Read about all the entry requirements for moving to Cape Verde and check to ensure you are compliant with all of them.
  • Pick a moving company and make sure that it offers Cape Verde International Moving Services.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Although they are possible, DIY moves are extremely difficult to pull off when you are moving to a new country. You will need to be conversant with all sorts of rules that sometimes are given to you in a different language. To be safe, you should work with a professional moving company. Here are reasons why you should take this approach:

  • A professional moving company has managed moves to Cape Verde before and they know any pitfalls that you might find along the way.
  • They have built relationships with local authorities over the years and are therefore best placed to address any problems that might arise.
  • They have storage facilities to safely store your belongings before you arrive.
  • They come with their own specialized equipment to ensure that your move to Cape Verde does not leave any of your appliances damaged.

How to find the best international moving company

When choosing a moving company to move you to Cape Verde, it is easy to find yourself confused and unable to pick a company to work with because of the wide range of options available online. Here are some pointers on how to identify a good one:

  1. Check their certifications and make sure that your cargo is insured against any loss or damage during the move.
  2. Visit Yelp and read some of the reviews left there by past customers. You’ll be able to gauge what to expect once you hire them.
  3. Get a quote to make sure that the prices they charge are reasonable for the services you will get.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
