Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Standard shipping costs from the USA to Afghanistan run between $1,100 and $5,000.
  • Since Afghanistan has no seaports of its own, vehicles shipped there go through Pakistan using either RORO (roll on, roll off) or containerized shipping.

*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

If you intend on going to Afghanistan for any extended length of time, consider having your vehicle shipped over too. Whether you are there for employment or study, Afghanistan is a place where having your own vehicle will definitely be worth your while.

With everything going on over in Afghanistan, going there to stay a while will be challenging. Having your own vehicle will make it so that you can travel freely and avoid language barriers and other challenges that come along with moving to a foreign country.

The Variety of Shipping Methods Available

After contacting the Embassy of Afghanistan for the most current information in regards to vehicle shipment from the United States, consider the variety of shipping/exporting methods available to you. There are three methods available for vehicle shipping/exporting. However, one of these methods is rarely ever used.

The cheapest form of vehicle shipment is RO/RO shipping. This shipping/exporting method will require that the vehicle remain empty with a few exceptions. Only floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire are allowed inside the vehicle at the time of shipment. The vehicle will need to be rolled onto the ship and off of the ship.

Another common shipping method is the container method. This method will allow you to fill the vehicle and the container with other belongings. The containers usually come in two sizes. They can also be shared with someone else. The costs can then be split.

Air shipping is another method for vehicle shipment. This method is great for landlocked countries, yet it is so expensive that not many people can afford to have a vehicle shipped this way.

Keep in mind, that not all ports accept the RO/RO shipping method. Make sure there is one that does somewhere near you so that you can easily retrieve your vehicle when it arrives or is imported. A port will not hold a vehicle for the owner. You must be present the day that it arrives at port.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Afghanistan

  2. Packing list & waybill
  3. Copy of invoice
  4. Valid visa
  5. Proof of purchase (if less than 6 months old)
  6. Customs clearance

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Afghanistan

Shipping oversized cargo and heavy equipment to another country isn’t easy to do without anything you may need such as haulers or the right shipping materials and equipment. Not to mention, you’ll need to abide by foreign import policies which isn’t usually easy for someone without prior understanding and knowledge. Luckily, A1 Auto Transport can help.

Ideally, any cargo that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container is considered as over-sized. However, if your cargo fits into a shipping container yet exceeds the standard weight limits, it may also be considered heavy equipment. Here are some examples of the heavy and oversized equipment we’re able to have shipped overseas:

  • Tractors, combines & other farm equipment
  • Backhoes and excavators
  • RVs and motorhomes
  • Industrial equipment
  • Bulldozers, dump trucks and forklifts
  • Hydraulic equipment
  • Oversized engines
  • Pile drivers
  • Cranes
  • Large trucks & heavy vehicles
  • Engineering & agricultural equipment

At A1 Auto Transport, we ensure a safe transport of your heavy equipment from the United States to Afghanistan. We will even make sure you comply with foreign policies so that your cargo isn’t denied access into the nation. Throughout the entire shipping process you will benefit from our guidance while having the ability to monitor your cargo’s whereabouts through satellite tracking services.

The Shipping Options We Have Available

Depending on your cargo and the route that must be taken to carry out the delivery, there are several shipping methods that we have available. Some of these options offer more security than others and some of them are much less expensive than others. Our professionals can help you to decide but here’s a little further insight first…

  • LoLo Shipping or Lift On/Lift Off - Using a crane, we will safely lift your cargo onto the ship. Once the cargo reaches the port nearest Afghanistan, it will be lifted off the ship in the same manner. This shipping service applies primarily to non-op vehicles and crated heavy equipment.
  • RoRo Shipping or Roll On/Roll Off - Although not all sea ports except cargo shipped through this method of transport, it is the cheapest option available. With this shipping method, the motorized piece of equipment or vehicle is rolled onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • Container Shipping - This method tends to cost a bit more yet it isn’t available to all those shipping heavy equipment. If your heavy cargo fits into the container than you’re likely able to request this method of transport. The walls and ceiling of the container provide the ultimate protection during your cargo’s travels.
  • Flat Rack Shipping - This shipping method uses what appears to be the frame of a shipping container. Lacking walls or a ceiling, your cargo is secured to the frame for its transport. The frame with your cargo secured, is placed atop the ship for its delivery. Depending on the weather conditions, your cargo may be wrapped and protected by shrink wrap or plastic sheeting.

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!
