Ship Your Car To Or From Bassar, Togo
Bassar is a town located in the Bassar Prefecture within the Kara Region in Togo. It is situated west of the city of Kara but is fast developing with enhanced agrarian activities and trade. Togo is a part of West Africa and the climate is tropical while the people there depend mainly on agriculture. Public transport is particularly scarce and having your car is without a doubt the less strenuous option of traveling. Thus, if you intend moving here, it is best to ship your car here from the US.

However, you need to know that it will cost you between $2,300 and $6,400 but it is cheaper than buying another imported vehicle here. Import taxes for the cars which are brought in the country could get to as much as 50% of the market value so it’s important to keep this in mind.
However, shipping car from USA to Togo can take a lot of planning but if you work with A1 Auto Transport service, things fall in place quickly. There are quite a few things that you will have to take into account while the majority of the laws aren’t going to make a lot of sense to most of the US citizens.
The Documents Required to Ship a Car to Togo
- You need to fill out an IE462 document
- You need to get an authorization letter from the South Africa Bureau of Standards
- Any vehicle which is second-hand, vintage, race car or inherited needs to abide by quite a lot of stringent restrictions.
- You need proof of passport
- You need to verify your employment and its length
- A copy of your registration for the vehicle
- Proof and documents for your residency in Togo
- Proof for studying in Togo if you will be doing it
- Certificate of non-sale
- Bill of Lading
As you can see, there are a lot of things that you need to ensure before you get going. This is why we said that shipping to any African country is rather complicated. The roadways in the country are paved and you shouldn’t have to worry about getting a 4-wheel drive. However, keep in mind that holes in the roads fill up with water when it rains and this might lead to some issues.
Issue with Public Transportation
The public transportation in the country is just scarce. There are buses and taxis but they aren’t as bountiful and it’s definitely something problematic if you intend on using these services periodically. Before you ship your car to Togo, you need to be on site when the vehicle arrives if you get your car shipped with RORO or Container shipping. There are only a few ports in the USA which will accept exportation to Togo. This is something that you have to keep in mind. Thus, it is best to talk with one of our shipping agents and ensure that the complete transit and other procedures are chalked out in detail.
