Ship Car To Bahir Dar
🇪🇹 Ethiopia, (ET)

Bahir Dar is located north-west of Ethiopia. It is also the capital of Amhara Region. Bahir Dar is considered a special zone which is specially designated charter city and a first-tier division.

If you plan to travel and stay for an extended period in Ethiopia soon, you will want to bring your personal vehicle with you so you can travel around on your own time. You can have the freedom to go when and where you need to without relying on public transportation, currency issues or language barriers.

If you plan to have your vehicle transported from the United States, you will find that the process is not that complicated though it is tedious and time consuming. There are rules and regulations for shipping a vehicle that must be followed. If you want to stay in Bahir Dar for a little while, you will benefit from importing your vehicle when you do.

Technicalities of importing a car to Ethiopia.

When you transport your vehicle to Bahir Dar from USA, you will need to have the right documentation with you and presented well in advance to Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority before the scheduled import. Presenting the documentation throughout the process will ensure that you are not importing it illegally but validate the procedure and authenticates that the vehicle actually belongs to you. You will need:

  • Your driver's license.
  • Vehicle title and registration.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Proof of Insurance.
  • Proof of Residency in Ethiopia.

Calculate the Cost of Shipping.

A1 Auto Transport will help you determine the amount of money you will pay for importing a vehicle. You will also be charged foreign customs duty, offloading fees, and more. When paying your shipping fees, you will need to use either a credit card or cashier's check as personal checks will not be accepted in most cases.

The transporting fees will be determined mostly by the weight of the vehicle as well as the shipping method you choose. You can choose to ship a vehicle in a container or on an open vessel. Container shipping is the more expensive as compared to RORO because of the additional loading and offloading fees involved. You must also consider additional things that will affect your total cost such as leaking battery, leaking oil or coolant inside the container.

Available shipping options.

You will have different shipping options to choose from when shipping a vehicle. Container shipping is one of the most common shipping methods. You will get to choose the size you want from either a 20 foot or 40 foot container. The Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping is the most commonly chosen way of shipping a vehicle because it is the most affordable.

If you want to send your household items over to Ethiopia, you can use the container shipping which allows you to fill up the container with your items after your vehicle is loaded inside. The Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping requires that the vehicle is completely empty when shipping. With this method, your vehicle is driven onto the deck of the ship and rolled off of the ship once it reaches the port. Call the Ethiopian Consulate to get further details on the tax and current laws.

How to Prepare for Export.

When your vehicle import date is approaching, you will need to prepare your vehicle. Look over your vehicle with an A1 Auto Transport Service agent and note any damages already on your vehicle. Remove all personal items from the vehicle except for a spare tire, a car jack, and floor mats. Be sure to pay all additional fees and taxes associated with your import.

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!
