When you are making your plans to get your car shipped here, you need to find an experienced transportation company in the USA that understands the import needs of Saudi Arabia. That is why working with A-1 Auto Transport service makes sense. You would also need to make sure that you comply with all the legislations and Customs regulations in Saudi Arabia.
You should check out the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website for additional insight on the matter in order to ensure that everything is handled properly. You will need to work very closely with A-1 Auto Transport as we are going to prepare the entire order. We will provide you with information on the cost for shipping your car to Abha as well as the various other ancillary services like door-to-door service that you can take advantage of in order to ship it conveniently.
Documentation for Car Import
We will assist you with the paperwork which included identifying paperwork such as:
- Social security number
- Driver’s licenses
- Title of the car
- Insurance on the vehicle
- Work or residence permit for Saudi Arabia
- Passport of the vehicle owner
- Car registration documents and purchase invoice
If you need the vehicle transported to the port, we offer terminal to terminal and door to door delivery and assistance. You will need to give us a permission to transport your car in the USA, if you need it delivered to some of the major ports. However, that would be an additional cost.
How Should You Ship Your Car?
Once you’ve gone through all of the preliminary requisites with the representative of the transport company, you need to decide the type of transport that you want to use in order to get your car shipped. There are quite a few different options to ship your car overseas from the USA to ABHA. You can ship by air as well but that’s way too expensive.
Roll on/Roll off or Ro-Ro method is the one which is most commonly preferred because it’s the cheapest way to do so. You have to drive your car on and off a shipping deck on a freight carrier on its own wheels – hence rolling. This is the quickest sea-bound freight shipping method but you can’t ship any personal belongings. If that’s what you want to do you need to go for container shipping – it’s convenient and allows you to ship as many belongings as they can fit in the container.
Checking with the Customs
Once you are through with those decisions, you need to prepare for the checkpoint at the customs in Abha. They won’t clear it if it has been involved in an accident or if it has any types of damage to the body. You aren’t allowed to have any external modifications as well, unless they are from the manufacturer and can’t be reversed. In any case, make sure to bring your personal documents and check with the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, DC for any further information.
