Car Shipping Abomey-Calavi

A major city, Abomey-Calavi has its location in the Atlantique district of Benin. It is  Cotonou suburb which has its closest point about 18 km from the center of the city. In case you are planning to move on a long term basis or permanently for work or other reasons, having your personal vehicle can be an asset.

There are certain things that you have to be aware of if you are going to export a vehicle from the US to the country of Benin. The traffic can be rather unpredictable. Most of the main roads are going to be paved but the secondary ones are definitely not. You are going to have the accurate paperwork filled out when you are ready to relocate the car.

Motor Vehicle laws in Benin.

Apart from having the required paperwork and documentation you would also have to be familiar with the Vehicle Regulations in the country in order to import your vehicle. These are as follows:

  • Taxes have to be paid on all of the new vehicles. The cost of shipping is based on the value of the vehicle, the model and make, the year as well as the size and the accessories.
  • You would have to possess the original Bill of Sale which shows the weight in kilograms as well as the numbers of the engine and the chassis, the size of the engine.
  • Each person can import only one vehicle

In order to get approval you are going to present the following documentation:

  • Undersigned non-sale certificate which states that you are not going to sell the car to anyone else.
  • Original Title and registration.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • Invoice of Freight from A1 Auto Transport service.

For any further documentation and information you can contact the Embassy ofBenin located in Washington DC.

Before you ship the vehicle.

Before you ship or export your vehicle you will need a quote from the shipping agency regarding the chosen method of transportation. You are going to have the required paperwork ready and you would have to prepare the car itself for the shipping. The agent is also supposed to go over the types of shipping in regard to your final destination. He would also have to inform you about the specifics regarding the things you would need to do in order to prepare the car for shipping. Other arrangements for picking the car up are also required. For any further information or documentation you can speak directly to your transport agent or you can get in touch with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency.

Methods of shipping.

  • Container shipping – this particular way entails that your car is going to be loaded into a particular container and loaded on to the ship. This is a great option if you have any personal items which need to be shipped in addition to your car. You are also able to share a container or you can use one on your own.
  • Ro-Ro Shipping, or also known as Roll-on/Roll-Off shipping is the cheapest way to go and it is also the fastest way to get your car overseas. The vehicle is going to be practically driven onto the carrier ship and fastened into one place. It is then going to be driven off once the ship reaches the exit port.

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!
