Moving To Chad

🇹🇩 Chad, (TD)

Chad International Moving Services

Although moving to a new home can be challenging, an overseas move is a similar but totally different experience. In addition to the normal moving challenges like moving pets to a new environment, leaving old friends and having to make new ones, an international move will require you to deal with immigration, customs, new electrical signals for home appliances and sometimes even a new language.

Duties when shipping your household items to Chad

If you’ve owned and used your household belongings for at least the last six months - and lived outside of Chad for the last 12 months - then you can import your shipment free of any duty. If you do obtain duty exemption, then you’re required to keep the items in your possession during your stay (you aren’t even permitted to let others borrow them).

You also must turn in all paperwork pertaining to your shipment, a full 2 weeks before your goods arrive. Last but not least, a Certificate of Free Entry must be obtained from the head customs office in Chad (1).

Documents when shipping your household items to Chad

Various forms and paperwork is required, when importing goods into the country. You’ll need a Move Certificate (Certificat de Demenagement), and this can be obtained from either the local police station or city hall in the municipality where you’ll be living. Your Resident Permit, Work Permit or a Letter of Employment are also required.

Customs will also need to see your Non-Sale Certificate, verifying that you won’t sell your belongings inside Chad’s borders. A full packing list and a separate inventory should also be provided. Be sure to sign and date this inventory, include monetary values on it and write it out in French (2).

Duties when shipping your vehicle to Chad

If you’ll be importing your used vehicle into the country, you won’t be required to pay any duty. Import duties are only levied on new vehicles - which makes the import process significantly more affordable for most people. One reputable source does mention import tax, however. Whether this is a separate charge isn’t clear - so confirm what fees will apply to your shipment by speaking with customs (3).

Regulations when shipping your vehicle to Chad

Though used vehicles have the typical import duty waived, only vehicles less than 3 years old can be brought into Chad. Also, your Original Bill of Lading is required to list the chassis and engine numbers, make, model, year and engine volume for your vehicle (4).

Documents when shipping your vehicle to Chad

Before customs will authorize your vehicle for entry, you must submit some paperwork. This includes your driver’s license, and the vehicle’s title and registration. The Bill of Sale or purchase invoice are also needed. Your Social Security card and a Certificate of Non-Sale (verifying you won’t sell the vehicle within Chad) are mandatory as well. If the vehicle you’ll be importing is new, then an Import License must also be provided. Finally, if a third-party will be handling the clearance process for you - then a valid Power of Attorney is required (5).

Additional paperwork and regulations may be pertinent - so confirm all the necessary requirements for both your household goods and vehicle with customs.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

We know that moving overseas is never easy so we have compiled a list of tips that will help make your life easier as you plan that move. Here they are:

  • Don’t fill your luggage with items that you don’t need. Only carry the items that you can’t do without and those that can’t be bought in Chad.
  • Start working on the immigration documents early. Some documents will take days or weeks before you are cleared and this could easily end up causing delays if you don’t leave sufficient time for them.
  • Research on visa requirements and customs restrictions to avoid unpleasant surprises at border control.
  • Pick a moving company that offers all the Chad International Moving Services that you require within your budget.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

There are two ways you can go about relocating to a new county. There is the DIY route which while cheaper will require much more from you. Then there is the professional way which may cost more but offers greater peace of mind. Here’s why:

  • Experience: Professional moving companies have done hundreds of moves in the past so they are armed with the necessary experience to handle the entire process.
  • Connections: In the years they have been in business, moving companies have built good relationships with local authorities in both countries hence they are best placed to fix any problems that might arise.
  • Storage Facilities: Should your shipment arrive in Chad before you, moving companies will store it in secure warehouses as they await your arrival.
  • Equipment: From loading appliances to trucks to packing supplies for fragile items, shipping companies have invested in the right equipment for the job.

How to find the best international moving company

With all that said, it’s important to note that you will only be able to get these benefits when you choose the right company. Here’s how to go about that:

  1. Talk to friends who have had to move to a new country in the past or read company reviews on websites like Yelp.
  2. Ask about their certifications. A good company should be licensed and insured.
  3. Get a quote to know exactly what you will be getting and roughly how much it will cost.

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!
