Beni Mellal is a very important city for manufacturing petrochemicals and textiles for export from Morocco to nations throughout the world. When driving a car in Beni Mellal you will want to drive very defensively due to heavy traffic, lack of traffic lights and road signs and no lighting on the roads at night. It is usually recommended to try to stay on the main roads when driving in Beni Mellal due to the inconsistencies with signage and traffic on the secondary roadways. When you’re making plans to have your personal car transported to Beni Mellal you will need to hire an auto transporter who is knowledgeable with transporting cars internationally. You cannot use a transporter who only transports within the United States. You will also need to study a little on overseas shipping information as well as customs regulations for the country of Morocco. You may want to contact the Embassy of Morocco for information on driving regulations for Beni Mellal and local customs information.
One of the first things the auto transport company will do will be to gather your personal information such as address, driver’s license, social security number and vehicle identification. They will most likely also have you sign a Power of Attorney that will give them permission to transport your car. If you need to have delivery to the sea port in order for it to ship out, the transport company will help with that as well. If you plan on remaining in Beni Mellal as a permanent resident and will need your car in the city permanently you will want to contact the Consulate General of Morocco that is located in New York for information on changing your resident status as well as the permanent relocation for your personal car. You will need to discuss how you will ship the car, the cost of shipping and rules for export with the transport company prior to shipping.

It is very important to carefully decide which type of shipping you prefer for your car. The shipping company will take into account whether the car will be shipped by itself or if you need to ship your household goods at the same time. If you will just be shipping the car alone, you can use Ro-Ro Shipping which is designed specifically for the transport of motor vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Anything from a bike to a bus can be shipped on Ro-Ro transport ships. This has been the most preferential way to ship a motor vehicle for many years and is the quickest way by sea route to have the car reach the entry port for Beni Mellal. If you will be shipping anything inside of the car or you just want some added protection during the overseas transport then Container Shipping is a highly suggested so that your car and any valuables that need shipped may be shipped at the same time. Everything will be loaded into a shipping container and then transported by cargo ship overseas to the local entry port where you may pick it up and take it through customs for clearance. Bear in mind that when having a car imported to Beni Mellal you have to be physically present at the port when the car arrives. You will need to work closely with the transport company to make sure the timing of the car shipment coincides with your arrival in the country or that you will already be there prior to the car arriving.
Beni Mellal Customs Clearance.
Customs in Beni Mellal have regulations set just as every other country in the world has. Taxes and import duties will need to be paid on every motor vehicle imported to the city and those fees can range from 30% up to 70% of the value of the car as well as the cost, insurance and freight fees. Before the car has been shipped from the United States you will want to make sure you check with the transport company for information on whether anything on your car may need to be modified to ensure it is up to par with the motor vehicle regulations of Morocco. Customs agents will inspect the car from top to bottom to certify that everything is in working order and complies with the road standards. They will also collect some paperwork from you which may include your passport, motor vehicle title, import permit and sales invoice. You will want to check prior to shipping to make sure that all important paperwork has been put together so you will have it at the time of the arrival of your car to the entry port as lacking any of the mandatory documents may prevent your car from being allowed clearance from customs.
