Why Should I Have My Auto Transported?
While purchasing a vehicle of any sort is possible in Antananarivo, if you already own a vehicle and wish to keep it, transporting it to your location isn’t an issue. This will allow you to further avoid any currency issues, as well as any potential language barriers. It will also give you the freedom to travel quickly and hastily to anywhere you need to go without having to use public transport in the country which can become confusing if you aren’t native to the area.
Rules and Regulations for Transport.
Motorcycles, automobiles and other types of private vehicles all have the same rules and regulations to heed to. These are always subject to change. Contacting Customs well in advance is always a wise decision before shipping the auto. That will assure that all aspects are addressed appropriately and the transport of the auto will go along smoothly.
- License and Passport.
- Proof of Insurance.
- Title and Registration.
- Receipts for Duties and Tariffs.
The above, as well as other documents will more than likely be needed for presentation at Customs. The ports will also ask you to present documentation such as your license and title. This is usually stuff that you already have within your grasp.
