Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • The cost of shipping a to standard-sized car to Abu Dhabi from the United States ranges from $1,500 up to $7,000, depending on the type of vehicle and where in the U.S. it’s being shipped from. 
  • Larger cars, trucks, and SUVs will cost slightly more.) Customs are generally assessed at 4-5% of the value of the vehicle.

Exporting a vehicle to Abu Dhabi (or anywhere in the United Arab Emirates, for that matter) is no easy task and it’s important to understand the restrictions, limitations and required documents when doing so.

One of the main concerns when importing a car to Abu Dhabi is whether it can handle the extreme heat, with temperatures often exceeding 100 degrees during the summer months. The weather can wreak havoc on air conditioning systems and radiators, to the point that fire extinguishers are now required in vehicles in Abu Dhabi.

Car parts can be more difficult to find for less popular models as well. Toyotas are a popular make and easier to find parts for, but even then, you’ll have a hard time finding a mechanic to help you if you’re driving a manual transmission (stick shift) rather than an automatic.  Cars with tinted windows may not be brought into Abu Dhabi and you may not import more than one car per year unless you have a commercial license to do so. Paperwork can also be a hassle, especially if you don’t have the assistance of an Arab to help you with the process.

Abu Dhabi uses street cameras to catch speeding motorists and you might not know you’ve been ticketed until well after the fact. It’s often not until you pay yearly registration fees that you find out you’ve been ticketed, which can cause confusion with unfamiliar drivers. You can use the Abu Dhabi police’s online portal to inquire about a ticket or fine.

  1. Registration from country of origin.
  2. Vehicle purchase invoice.
  3. Title.

Auto Transport Methods For Abu Dhabi.

  • RoRo (Roll on, Roll off) - RORO auto transport to Abu Dhabi is the most popular method of vehicle transport. The car must be operable since it is driven up a ramp onto a ship, which then travels to the local port for delivery. Vehicles are securely held in place during RoRo transport and then driven off the shipping vessel upon arrival. Items may not be stored in the vehicle when using roll-on/roll-off transport.
  • Container Shipping - Containerized shipping is another option and it’s the best choice if you need goods or personal items shipped along with your vehicle. As with RORO, the vehicle is securely held in place during transit, but you are allowed to include other items in the container and often, in the car itself.

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!
