International Removals Prices

Are duties charged on your household items?

You can often have the typical import duties waived, if you’ve owned and used these goods for at least the previous six months. You also need to have lived outside of the country, for a minimum of 12 months. If you are granted duty exemption on your shipment, you’re not allowed to sell any of these goods while in the Congo. You also need to get your paperwork to the destination agent, a minimum of 15 days before your shipment arrives.

You should also know, additional taxes apply (even for duty-exempt shipments). These include computer tax of 2%, Import Clearance Processing tax of 1% and assurance tax of 0.8% (1).

What paperwork does customs require?

When clearing your shipment at the point or port of entry, customs will request some documentation. You’ll need to show your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. A valid Work Permit from the Ministry of Labor is needed, along with your Work Visa. A comprehensive inventory that includes values is mandatory documentation as well. This should be written in French, and it should bear your signature and the date. Keep in mind that a packing list will also be required.

A Certificate of First Settlement from the Immigration Department must be filed. You’ll also need to submit a Fiche Electronique de Renseignements al I’Importation (or FERI for short) (2).

Are duties charged on your vehicle?

Unfortunately, duty exemption isn’t offered on vehicle imports - so you can expect to pay the full rate. This ranges from around 8% to 46%, and this is charged on the CIF value. Customs will determine the exact rate based upon your vehicle’s characteristics, such as its weight, year of manufacture and engine size (3).

Cross Relocation

What paperwork does customs require for your vehicle?

Appropriate documentation is needed for customs clearance, starting with your Freight Invoice. The vehicle’s title and registration from the origin country are also required. You also must confirm the purchase, and typically a purchase invoice is sufficient for this purpose. Your Original Bill of Lading, passport and driver’s license should also be provided - along with the receipt of paid taxes and duties (4).

While this is a good general overview of the process, other documents and regulations will pertain to your shipments. Thus, it’s important that you contact customs directly, to learn all of the requirements when moving to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

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!
