Can import duties be waived?

Customs does allow duty exemption in certain cases, but you must meet the required conditions. You must have a valid Certificate of Change of Residence, though a Certificate of Transfer (within your company) will also be sufficient. Whether these documents alone are enough for duty exemption isn’t specified - but you will certainly be required to pay duty without them (1).

If your shipment is assessed import duty, then expect to pay the Octroi de Mer - which literally translates as the “granting of sea” (2). This refers to dock duties on shipments, and French Guiana currently charges between 12% to 22%.

What paperwork does customs need?

Prior to releasing your goods for entry into the country, customs requires the proper documents to be filed. You must provide a Certificate of Property, along with your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. They also need to see proof of residency within the country, which comes in the form of a lease agreement, utility bill or the like (which should be dated no more than 3 months ago). A valid Certificate of Transfer or Certificate of Change of Residence is also required. You must have a full inventory on hand too, along with a separate packing list (3).

Can import duties on vehicles be waived?

The requirements for duty exemption on your vehicle, are identical to those listed for your household belongings. You’ll again need to show either a Certificate of Transfer or Certificate of Change of Residence. Whether there are additional requirements for exemption isn’t mentioned by knowledgeable sources - so you may want to confirm this with customs.

If you aren’t eligible to receive duty exemption, then the rate for vehicle importation is 22% (4).

What paperwork does customs need for vehicles?

You’ll have to show the vehicle’s registration, which was issued in your origin country. A certificate of insurance verifying that coverage is in place, is also required. Customs will also request a certified statement concerning the vehicle and a Non-Sale Certificate (5).

It’s quite possible that additional regulations or filing requirements apply, to both your household effects and vehicle. Also, customs policies are subject to change - so it’s best to confirm the latest information directly with them.

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!
