With a new and well-developed road network, Bahrain is a popular place to own a car. Those relocating to the country should consider importing their own vehicle, as Bahrain’s government has made the process particularly easy for Americans – going as far as to waive customs duty. With a busy port at Manama and frequent departures from the USA, shipping is an easy and economical choice.

Port of Arrival

The major port in Bahrain is located in the capital city of Manama, a populous metropolis and ideal spot to enter the country. This harbor offers Ro/Ro (roll on/roll off) facilities for auto shipping.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Bahrain

Before you can ship a car out of the US, you’ll need to obtain a few documents:

  1. Proof of ownership / original title.
  2. Consent to ship (if vehicle is under lien)
  3. Bill of sale.
  4. Bill of lading.
  5. Insurance.

Import Regulations

Bahrain permits the relatively easy import of American vehicles – in fact, vehicles originating in the USA are exempt from tariffs. Note, however, that the country does not allow importation of cars that are more than eight years old. Some paperwork will be required for a quick Customs clearance – important for avoiding cost delays at the port or elsewhere. You’ll need to submit:

  • A Customs Declaration Form
  • Traffic Technical Inspection (with included Clearance Certificate)
  • Inspection License Plate from the Traffic Department of Manama.
  • Export License Plate.
  • Vehicle details (prepared by the Customs Port)
  • Identification Card.
  • Vehicle insurance documents.
  • Delivery order.
  • Bill of lading.
  • Clearance certificate.

Note that vehicles can be collected at the destination only by the owner, or by an authorized representative.

Types of Shipping

Once you have decided to ship your car to Bahrain, you’ll next need to decide on the mode of transport. Ro/Ro (roll on/roll off) is the more economical option, in which the vehicle is simply driven onto a ship and then off again at the destination. However, should your vehicle be an antique or otherwise particularly valuable, consider the additional protection offered by container shipping.

Preparing Your Car for Shipping

Proper preparation of the vehicle is necessary to ensure a smooth transportation process. Before shipping/exporting, be sure to:

  • Remove all personal belongings from the car.
  • Clean it thoroughly, inside and out, to avoid quarantine delays.
  • Make note of all dents and scratches along with the shipping representative, and obtain a signed form attesting to the condition of the vehicle.
  • Leave only a quarter tank of fuel in the car.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Bahrain

Transporting heavy equipment and oversized cargo to another country can be done when you hire experienced professional transporters. With the help of A1 Auto Transport you won’t have to worry about the logistics of the shipping process. We have access to durable, high quality transport equipment and extreme knowledge of foreign import laws. Your heavy equipment is guaranteed to arrive in the nation safe and sound.

Whether it’s farming, industrial, paving or mining equipment, a large vehicle, heavy machinery, or an RV, we have the ability to ship it overseas. There are several ways to ship heavy equipment and oversized cargo. The transport methods you’re able to take advantage of depend on what kind of cargo you’re trying to ship to Bahrain. Typically, any piece of equipment that can’t fit into a 40ft shipping container or of excessive weight is considered as heavy equipment or oversized cargo. When you call in to schedule your international transport, we’ll help you make any decisions regarding the transport method and shipping services.

International Transport Methods for Heavy Equipment

Before you call in to A1, we’ve figured we’d give you a little run down of the shipping methods we have to offer to those wanting to ship heavy equipment to another country. Of course, the methods and services you’re able to purchase will depend on your cargo. Nevertheless, here are the four overseas transport methods we have available…

  • Flat Rack Shipping
  • Lift On/Lift Off (LoLo) Shipping
  • Roll On/Roll Off (RoRo) Shipping
  • Container Shipping

Some of the transport methods listed are more expensive than others. For example, container shipping is the most expensive way to ship heavy equipment overseas. Since your equipment is placed inside of a container, it is given the ultimate protection from outside elements such as inclement weather conditions.

The cheapest option available is RoRo shipping. This form of transport includes rolling your equipment or vehicle onto the ship and off of the ship so it must be operable to take advantage of this method. LoLo shipping is another inexpensive option that includes lifting your equipment with a crane to place it on the ship as well as to take it off the ship. This shipping method is usually recommended to those with crated equipment or large inoperable vehicles.

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!
