Central African Republic International Moving Services

Despite being landlocked and covering only 240,000 square miles of land, the Central African Republic is rich in precious minerals like gold and diamond. It also has oil and uranium deposits, making it an important mining hub.

The political challenges experienced in this region in the past have made it quite tricky for foreigners to move here. As a result, it’s very important that if you have to move here, you get the help of a moving company that knows and understands the region. This is where A-1 Auto Transport comes in.

Duties when importing your belongings

You can bring your items into the country without paying duty, as long as you’ve owned and used them for at least the last six months. You also must have lived outside the Central African Republic for a minimum of the last 12 months.

If you do receive duty exemption on your shipment, then you’re not allowed to sell, let others borrow or get rid of these goods while in the country. You also have to turn in all paperwork 2 weeks before importing your items. Finally, you’ll need to have a Certificate of Free Entry from the head customs office, if you want import duty to be waived on your shipment (1).

Additional charges when importing your belongings

It appears that even for duty-exempt shipments, you’ll still be required to pay a 1% import tax. Also, you should be aware, that certain items are not eligible for exemption, including computers, alcohol, tobacco and new appliances. See here for the specific duty rates you’ll be charged on these items (2).

Paperwork when importing your belongings

Customs will need to see a packing list, as well as a separate inventory that includes values. This inventory should be written in French, and bear your signature and the date. If your shipment contains any electrical goods that are newer than 6 months - you’ll need to include invoices or receipts for these items. Your Residence Permit, Work Permit or a valid Employment Letter are also required.

You must also include your passport, Personal Identification Number and cargo tracking note (CTN). A Non-Sale Certificate is also needed, and this states that you won’t sell your belongings inside the country. Finally, your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill should be provided (3).

Duties when importing your vehicle

Unfortunately, duty exemption for vehicles imported on a permanent basis isn’t available. You can, however, receive duty exemption for temporary vehicle imports. Keep in mind that if you import a luxury vehicle, then a separate duty of 77.5% will apply (4).

Paperwork when importing your vehicle

Before your vehicle can enter the country, you’ll need to submit some paperwork to customs. They’ll request your Social Security card, driver’s license and the vehicle’s title. An Insurance Certificate verifying coverage is in place, is also required documentation. Finally, if you’re using a third-party or moving company (like A1 Auto Transport) to deliver the vehicle after it’s processed - then you must file a Power of Attorney (5).

The above lists are not comprehensive, and other paperwork and regulatory requirements apply to your shipments. Get in touch with customs for a more complete picture - to ensure you don’t overlook any necessary steps in the process.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Whether you are moving temporarily for a few months or on a more permanent basis, international moves are never easy. Here are some things that you can do to make your work easier:

  • Find out if your electronics and appliances will work in the Central African Republic. Instead of carrying your television and end up having to buy adapters and converters to make it work, you are better off selling it and buying one that works in the new region.
  • Start the immigration process early. It is usually full of formalities that could result in delays as you wait to be cleared.
  • Review important information for foreigners moving to the Central African Republic.
  • Choose a moving company that meets your needs and your budget and find out how their process works.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Moving to a new home often brings with it some challenges, but moving abroad is a totally different animal. This is because in addition to the usual difficulties, you will also need to deal with customs, immigration, new electrical signals, new TV signals and sometimes you’ll even have to learn a new language.

Although hiring a professional moving company won’t make all the trouble go away, it will certainly make it more bearable. Here are a few reasons why you should hire one:

  • Professional moving companies have been there before and done what you are trying to do now so they know how to avoid common mistakes.
  • When problems occur, you can leverage the relationships that the company has built with local authorities.
  • You’ll have access to safe storage facilities for your belongings before you arrive.
  • The professional moving company will have specialized equipment for moving and loading your appliances on the trucks so nothing will get damaged.

How to find the best international moving company

There are many moving companies that offer Central African Republic International Moving Services. Here’s how you identify the best company for your move:

  1. Get recommendations from friends who have moved before. If you can’t find someone in your circles, read reviews from websites like Yelp.
  2. Check if they are licensed to operate a moving company in your area and don’t forget to check if they are insured.
  3. Get a quote for the move and compare the services offered with the prices charged.

Satisfied Customers

“Dear Tracey, I'd like to tell you how impressed I am with my interaction with Teresa. What could have meant rescheduling of travel plans was averted by her. She basically jumped through hoops to ensure that one of our corporate cards would be picked up tomorrow. She is certainly an asset to your corporation. Sincerely yours, Catherine Sullivan”

“Hiring A1 Auto Transport was far cheaper than I thought it would be. I’ve always imagined auto transport services to be expensive as hell. It was easy to get in touch with them and the pickup was scheduled for the very next day. Despite being in Bucharest at the time, I was able to arrange for its travel from Atlanta to Indiana without much of a fuss. I really appreciated the driver’s efforts to keep me in the know and loved how understanding and helpful the staff was overall. My car got to Indiana on the promised day within the time frame they estimated. It was in good condition, with no damage suffered during transport. I heard open transport often gets vehicles scratched by the weather or from pebbles on the road, but nothing happened to mine. I’ll get back to you guys when I go back to Atlanta.”

“I am super happy with my choice of A1 Auto Shipping. The other company I worked with was super difficult, though it did teach me a bit about the industry. Some brokers underbid by a lot, so they’ll get your contract, even if there are no carriers who will ever want to take on a job at such a price. Because of this, after signing the contract, they may leave you hanging endlessly. I had to get my car to Kentucky and had no time for pointless waiting. The other company asked me to pay $800 upfront. I didn’t know at the time this wasn’t standard practice. By paying upfront, I basically had no choice but to wait on them till a truck finally offered to take my car. A1 Auto Transport, for example, only asks for a deposit amounting to a fraction of the total cost when picking up your vehicle. You only pay the full sum after the job is done. The broker, whose name I won’t mention, was supposed to get a truck to my doorstep on the 5th of September. I put my order in 10 days prior, so there was plenty of time to find one. When I called them, they told me the 5th was actually the earliest estimate, and the actual pickup date could be quite long time away. After “accidentally” charging another $700 for my transportation, I was in tears. I had to move in less than a week, and I couldn’t afford to leave my car behind. So, I gave up on those guys and opted for A1 Auto Transport. I spoke with Joe and he got my car on a truck the following day. I am so grateful! The arrival time was estimated at 6-8 days, and it got to Kentucky on the 7th. This saved me a ton of money I would have had to spend on transport to search for an apartment. Joe called a day earlier to let me know of the time and place it would arrive. I asked if it could be delivered to another nearby location, and he was nice enough to do it. He was very helpful and straight forward. Thank you!”

“My vehicle beat me across the country! Thanks for the incredible service!”

“If you’re trying to get a car moved, you’re more likely to encounter brokers than auto transporters. They get you in touch with the actual people who move your car. But every so often, you stumble directly over an auto transport company, and even rarer, you find a great one! I called Joe last spring to transport a newly bought car to Oklahoma. He was calm, patient, and gave me good answers. I’m glad everything worked out. He called regularly to updated me on the transport. The pickup and delivery was within schedule, and there were no issues to mention. The truck driver too was a pleasure to work with.”
