Pakistan International Moving Services

International moving is where you ship your goods from one country to another. Individuals or businesses may need to relocate and while it may be possible to do this independently, it may prove to be overwhelming. International moving services are availed by professional moving companies, who make the relocation process hassle-free for their clients. Such companies will assist you to ship your car, as well as any other valuables, to Pakistan.

Household goods and import duties

Pakistan is kind enough to extend duty exemption on your used household belongings, though there are a few caveats. These should be classified under a transfer of residence into the country, and you’re only permitted to bring in what customs considers to be a reasonable amount of items. Keep in mind that the duty exemption doesn’t cover any electronics, even used ones (1).

Also, you have just six months after moving to import your belongings without paying duty on them. Filling out a CBR booklet is also necessary to have duty waived. Finally, the International Association of Movers recommends that you leave out any paperwork that lists the monetary value of your belongings, when submitting documentation to customs. Otherwise, they warn that these figures may be used by customs, to justify charging you high duties during clearance (2).

Household goods and import paperwork

You must give customs a Transfer of Residence Certificate, as well as a Certificate of Employment. A full inventory and your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are also needed. A separate packing list that has purchase receipts for any new goods (or possibly goods less than a certain age) is required. Customs will also request your passport and visa (3).

A Work Permit may be mandatory too, along with a letter from the company you’ll be working for within Pakistan. This must confirm how long your work contract runs. Finally, customs Form A should be filled out and submitted with the rest of your paperwork (4).

Your vehicle and import duties

You may be disappointed to hear, that foreigners aren’t allowed to bring vehicles into Pakistan. Only those with diplomatic status and Pakistani citizens enjoy vehicle importation rights. If you do somehow manage to bring your vehicle with you while moving (perhaps by having a citizen import it for you, if this is legally permitted) - the import fees will be significant. The current import duties and taxes range from 100% to 350%. The exact rate you’ll pay is dependant on the value (including freight costs) and the engine displacement (5).

Your vehicle and import paperwork

If you end up importing a vehicle, then your passport and the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are required. A purchase receipt that lists the vehicle model, horsepower rating and the engine number is also necessary. A De-Registration Certificate and the vehicle’s title should be provided as well. If you don’t have the title, then a technical passport will likely be an acceptable substitute (6).

Be prepared to provide documents showing insurance coverage and a Certificate of Origin (7). The vehicle registration, a valid Import Permit and customs Form A round out the list of required documentation (8).

A significant number of additional regulations may apply to your shipments, as well as other fees or paperwork requirements. For this reason, it’s sensible to give customs a call before relocating. They’ll be able to supply the most up-to-date and comprehensive information, regarding the clearance process.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas is often perceived to be such a hassle but it can be stress-free, especially when you choose a moving company that does its job well. Preparation is important for your big move to be successful. Research on all that is required to ship or migrate to Pakistan and also make good use of the resources available online such as on the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) site.

So as to have a great experience and easy time relocating, you need to prepare your goods in a manner that will allow for easy packing and unpacking. You also need to prepare your documents so as to enable easy processing. Liaise with the moving company and let them know the necessary details. Communicate your expectations and provide the necessary documents so as to enable them deliver the service in a timely manner. Paying the moving company as soon as possible also ensures that you will have a swift move.

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!
