Car Shipping Abu Dhabi

Ship Your Car To Or From Abu Dhabi.

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.

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.

...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.

★★★★★

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
