If you are moving to Samoa, you might be interested in importing your own vehicle for the ease of travel on the island.

Although importing the vehicle to Apia isn’t complex, there are some restrictions that you will need to consider. As Apia is a large port of Samoa, delivery of the vehicle is quick. However, it is important that you work with a leading shipping service is that they can navigate through the freight shipping procedures and adhere to the various procedures that are needed.

Expected cost of shipping to Samoa.

The cost is calculated on the basis of price of vehicle, freight charges and the method of shipping you select apart from the insurance on the vehicle. However, you will need to take into account the surcharges and taxes payable at Apia. The VAT and Service tax on imported vehicle is about 15% and the Customs and excise taxes vary from nil to 20%. Thus, talk with one of the shipping service representatives for an actual cost of the shipping. There are additional considerations that you need to be aware of including:

  • Only right hand driven vehicles are allowed to be shipped.
  • Only less than 12 year old vehicles can be imported.

However, as with international shipping, you need to ensure that all the paperwork is done as per requirement. Some of the essential documents that you need to submit include:

  • Ocean Bill of Lading.
  • Car Title.
  • Registration documents.
  • Purchase invoice with details of the vehicle.
  • Proof of ownership.

Additionally, before you can select any of the shipping methods, you need to know more about the options available. Among all of the freight shipping options, the most commonly used methods include:

  • Roll on, Roll off: This is the most commonly used method as it is the cheapest.  The car is driven on board the ship, harnessed in the bay and then driven off at Apia. However, there are some associated limitations including no personal items or air conditioning gas within the car, steam clean the vehicle and the vehicle should be in an operable condition.
  • Container shipping: This is a safer but a more expensive method to ship to Samoa. However, as the vehicle is placed with a closed container measuring anywhere from 20 feet to 40 feet, you are allowed to keep your personal items and household goods alongside it.

Satisfied Customers

“Dear Tracey, I am in the high technology industry with lots and lots of global competition, so I fully appreciate competitive selling situation. In today's fast paced business environment, true customer service is becoming an exception rather than a standard practice. I maintain this fact as I sell to my global clients ranging from electronic giants like Samsung, Motorola to unknown smaller customers in Taiwan. I took notice of Nicole's exceptional professionalism on the phone and her empathy to an already fraustrated customer (dealing with another transport company). Her followup after my initial inquiry for a quote is truly the reason why I chose to do my business with A1 Auto Transport. If Nicole's Customer Service skills are mere routine practice in your firm, then Bravo to management; if not, Nicole deserves to be recognized. Best Wishes, Homin Paik”

“I was wondering how A1 Auto Transport manages its people. They are so polite over the phone, provide you with a lot of options (even payment cardless options), set your expectations, and most of all, they take real good care of your automobile. I made the right choice to hand my Camaro to A1. My vehicle was delivered just on time to Missouri for my sister's birthday celebration. It was a really pleasant surprise. My Camaro arrived in excellent condition, as if it just came out from my garage.”

“Considering some of the alternatives out there, I can safely say A1 Auto Transport is one of the best. I talked to several companies. Around 30 got back to me with such insistence, I had to block some of their numbers. It was only when I took initiative and called A1 that things finally turned for the better. Joe’s advice was the best, an extremely pleasant man. I received a text or a call once a day, while my car was being transported, notifying me of its location and status. The truck arrived on time, both at the pickup and the drop off points. When I checked it in Nevada, the car was as I left it, so I’m very happy with the service.”

“We had to move a car from Austin to Ohio, so we picked A1 Auto Transport to do it. Joe was fast to take our order and we were scheduled for transport immediately. I first talked to him on Monday, and the truck arrived on Thursday morning. I was also kept in the know throughout the move. I called several times, perhaps too many times, but they always answered promptly. The arrival was a bit troublesome. The car was supposed to arrive in Ohio between 10am and 3pm. Later, he called saying he’ll arrive an hour or 2 later due to traffic, so we had to spend some time waiting. But considering everything that can happen on the road these days, we’re glad it wasn’t delayed more. The car arrived as we sent it, clean and without a scratch. We double checked just in case.”

“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!”
