Shipping A Car To Bangladesh
Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?
- Rates for shipping a car to Bangladesh start at $2,000 and go as high as $4,200 (less for smaller cars like sedans, more for SUVs, trucks and larger vehicles).
- It’s also more cost-effective if departing from the East Coast of the U.S., such as ports in Baltimore, Norfolk, or New York.
When transporting a vehicle to Bangladesh, certain requirements and specifications must be met in order for a successful transaction to occur. As with shipments to any other country, there is paperwork to be filled out, documents to send in, and fees to be taken care of.
It is also important to take into account the weather conditions of the country. Bangladesh can get quite warm with humidity, and the low-lying country is prone to experiencing the worst effects that cyclones and flooding have to offer.
Still, there are ways to navigate through such a country to ensure a lucrative transportation business with Bangladesh. It would be beneficial to gain knowledge regarding weather patterns of the country to understand any shipping/exporting delays that may occur.
Bangladesh is quickly growing to be a country that prides itself on its excellent work ethic and foreign business relations. Onshore and offshore gas reserves have created possibilities for lucrative work opportunities in the country. Bangladesh is benefitting from a steady increase of new imported citizens and goods, so their customs and laws regarding moving and shipping/exporting to the country have strengthened and become more efficient in recent years.
Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Bangladesh
In preparing to ship a vehicle to Bangladesh, certain paperwork must be taken care of.
Essential documents for transporting your vehicle to Bangladesh include:
- Registration from country of origin
- Vehicle purchase invoice
- Proof of ownership
- Residence permit
Visit the Bangladesh Customs Page for more information regarding this matter.
Furthermore, be sure to steam-clean the inside of your vehicle prior to departure so that your vehicle will not be quarantined before being shipped. This will speed up the delivery process.
Remove all air-conditioning gases from your vehicle as well.
If you are unsure about the eligibility of your vehicle’s shipping/importing status, refer to Title 19 of the U.S. Code Of Federal Regulations.
Upon Arrival In Bangladesh
Once you arrive at your final destination, there are certain procedures that need to be taken care of regarding the arrival of your vehicle into the country.
- Pay the appropriate customs duty as well as all taxes and fees associated with the shipment.
- Have modifications applied and tested if necessary.
- Apply for identification plate registration and approval with the Bangladeshi government.
Automobile Transportation Methods To Bangladesh
- Roll On/Roll Off/Ro-Ro Shipping: This is the most common method of transportation that the majority of countries choose. This is a method of sea shipping where vehicles are driven on and off carrier ships using their own wheels. Ro-Ro sea vessels are equipped with ramps that aid in the process of driving vehicles on and off the ship. It is the most convenient and cost-effective way of getting your vehicle to Bangladesh.
- Container Car Shipping: This is a popular shipping method choice for those who want to send some of their personal items along with their cars to Bangladesh. The vehicle is either collected at one’s home or is delivered to a depot. Depending on whichever price point is more desirable, customers can choose private containers, which usually run 20ft or 40ft in size, and use the leftover space to pack personal items in, or customers may choose to share containers with someone else’s vehicle. This is a slightly more expensive method, as more safety efforts are guaranteed.
- Car Transportation: This is a land-based, land-locked method of shipping, so it generally takes the greatest amount of time. Cars are insured and routinely inspected throughout the trip, but they must wait for a pending shipping date to Bangladesh before they begin their journey.
