The center of commerce and finance in Malawi is located at Blantyre, the 2nd largest city here. While the political capital is Lilongwe, Blantyre is easily the thriving commercial capital. Besides this, it is the capital of the southern regions of the country and of District Blantyre as well. Within some years, there has been significant growth in traffic movement. This is the result of economic liberation and overall development of the country. An important change is that on roads public transport has given way to presence of minibusses and private cars.

There is a 9,601-mile stretch of road network in Malawi with almost half of these paved. So, driving your personal vehicle here seems like a practical thing to do. Whether paved or unpaved, the government here is trying its best to improve road conditions as much as possible. So, this is the best time to import your car from the US to Blantyre. You can drive not only across Blantyre and other cities in Malawi but to neighboring countries too with ease. This, in turn, will ensure higher savings in travel expenses.

Shipping requirements that you should know.

Anyone who is interested in settling in Malawi from USA can import their cars to the country without problems. You will not require many standard documents or face much restriction during the process. Some of the requirements though include minimum one-year ownership of the vehicle, and only single vehicles are permitted per family. You must keep documents:

  • Ownership proof.
  • Purchase proof.
  • Registration certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Insurance.
  • Car title.

You must remember that the value of your vehicle should not exceed 500 kwacha or 500k, the Malawi currency. This is essential. However, when you have A1 Auto Transport service working with you, there isn’t much that you need to do. Just leave it to use and collect your vehicle and drive away.

You can leave everything related to shipping to us, your international auto transport agent. We will make everything smooth help you clear the US customs and pay the levy at the Malawi port. We know which documents to produce and will keep everything ready for the customs to verify. You must make sure that you are there to receive your car once it reaches Malawi port. After it is approved by the Malawi Transport Directorate, you are free to use the car in the city.

Shipping method to choose.

You can choose any of the popular shipping methods in this regard, namely RORO method and container shipping. In the first process, your vehicle will drive up the ramp and go down the same using its own wheels. Here, you will not be able to keep anything inside your vehicle. You must ensure to remove air-conditioning gases and steam clean the interiors for hassle-free shipment.

Those who are shipping luxury vehicles should choose container shipping instead as in this method your car will be secured inside a container to the port. This ensures additional protection for the sophisticated and expensive four-wheeler.

As laws keep changing, if you have questions or want to read more at Embassy of Malawi it would help you get more information about it.
