Besides being one of the largest tourist hubs of West Indies, it acts as crucial informatics, financial, and convention center. The location of Barbados is in Caribbean Islands, somewhere above the continent of South America.

Restrictions and delivery specifications

Though we will help you navigate the customs at US port and at Bridgetown it is important to understand the specific restrictions over importing vehicles to Barbados. These are:

  • Your car has to be less than 4 years old
  • Mileage showing on the odometer needs to be below 50,000 km
  • Carry the vehicle ownership documents
  • Insurance on the car
  • Bill of Lading
  • Import permit
  • Vehicle purchase invoice/receipt

There are other custom duties and taxations that are applicable before you are given the delivery of the vehicle. Usually the duty on cars is 45% of the value of the car. Additionally, you are obligated to deposit $4000 as ecological tax. If the car is new and less used, the VAT is about 17.5% and the tax is lowered to three hundred dollars. Apart from this, there are FAS port charges while the excise tax will depend upon engine capacity. While the cars with 1800-cc engine are considered under the luxury category and for those vehicles the excise tax can range from 60% to 120%, depending upon the weight of the vehicle. Our experienced transporters will ensure that all aspects are met and will ensure you are delivered the vehicle in Bridgetown.

Easy shipment options

With different methods of shipping available, you can either ship your car through RORO method or in an enclosed 20 ft. or 40 ft. container. In the container shipping method, even though it is more expensive than RORO, you are sure of transporting your car securely along with the rest of the goods within a sealed container. However, in the ROT method, the car is driven up a ramp and harnessed t limit movement during transit. At the port of destination, it is driven off the ship with equal ease. However, you cannot put anything in it except the floor mats and spare tire.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
