Shipping Overseas from the US.
You will need to prepare your car for shipping. This could take at least a week in advance of the time you estimate your car to leave port. Once your car reaches port, it will be inspected before it can be loaded. The entire procedure will need to follow rules and regulation in order to avoid any delays or rejections. You will need to determine which port you will be shipping to; Port of Bolama or Port of Bissau. Hiring A1 Auto Transport Service will ensure that your vehicle will be ready for transport on time and will go to the best port available.
You will need to have the following documents in your hand in order to keep this process on track.
- Title to your vehicle.
- Vehicle Export Declaration – This must come from U.S Customs and will need to be issued before your ship out date.
- Photo ID.
- Social Security Number.
Shipping Method Options.
When you are shipping to Bissau, you will need to decide on the right shipping option for you. Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is one of the most chosen shipping options because of its cost and it is easier. In order to ship using the RO/RO method, you will need to have:
* A quarter of a tank of gas in your tank.
* Have all the documentation in a secure place in your vehicle.
* No personal items inside the car except for a spare tire, floor mats, and a set of keys.
Container shipping method is also an option for shipping a vehicle. While this option is more expensive, you can send more over at one time. This option is good if you want to send an expensive vehicle or if you are moving.
Your vehicle will need to be rolled onto the ship deck where it will be strapped down for safety during the trip. If you don’t provide all the detailed documentation, you will cause delays. Cars are always the last to be loaded onto the ship. Whoever brings in your vehicle will be responsible for bracing your car for safety on the ship. If you choose a container, you will need to make sure that the door is shut and secure.
Once the car is in Bissau, you will need to pay all import duties as well as other fees associated with your import. You will need to have a driver’s license for this country and register your vehicle there too. If you have any questions, you can contact the Embassy of Guinea – Bissau located in the U.S.
