The city of Awasa is located on the shores of the Awasa Lake in the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia. It has its location about 285 kilometers away from Addis Ababa through the Debre Zeit road and is just over 70 km north of Dilla.

If you plan to stay in the city or in the country for a prolonged period of time, having your vehicle is definitely beneficial. You would have the freedom to travel whenever you need to without having to be burdened with the public transportation, currency issues, and language barriers.

Having your own vehicle transported from the USA isn’t as difficult as it might sound. Shipping a vehicle to Ethiopia is fairly easy unlike shipping to South Africa. The regulations are different throughout the entire continent and having your car with you in Awasa is going to pose a lot of advantages.

Shipping requirements.

There are different requirements for transporting your vehicle to Awasa. Even though the regulations set forth by the Ethiopian Customs Authority would usually vary, you would want to be prepared for some changes as they might occur occasionally. The documents that you need to deliver include:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Title.
  • Registration.
  • Seaway Bill.
  • Insurance and proof of residency.

How are the taxes determined?

A1 Auto Transport service will provide you with a quote over the phone for their services. Other taxes, however, such as offloading fees and customs duties are going to differ and they have to be paid upon arrival. Usually, the Ethiopian customs wouldn’t allow payment with credit cards so be careful about it.

We will determine the overall price based on the type of the transportation that’s chosen and the weight of the vehicle. You could use a container to ship the vehicle. The latter is more expensive and is also subjected to some offloading charges. You can contact the Embassy of Ethiopia and get the details.

Shipping methods.

There are different methods of shipping your car to Awasa. RO/RO or the Roll-on/Roll-off method is usually the overly preferred one as it’s more convenient, cheaper and faster. However, you need to know that you won’t be allowed to ship any additional belongings and your vehicle is going to be exposed to the elements at any given moment due to the fact that it is being shipped on a deck. The car will be driven on the ship and later driven off using its own wheels.

Container shipping is the second option in front of you. You would be able to choose between a 20ft and a 40ft private container. Your car would be loaded in it along with any personal belongings that you might want to get transported. There are no limitations in this particular regard but the service is generally slower and more expensive than the RO/RO method.
