Ship Car To Bwizibwera

🇺🇬 Uganda, (UG)

Ship Car To Bwizibwera
🇺🇬 Uganda, (UG)

The city of Bwizibwera is in the western region of Uganda. Bwizibwera means white water. Bwizibwera is about seventeen miles northwest of Mbarara City, which is the largest city located in the western region and approximately eight miles south of Rubindi town.

More Uganda citizens are purchasing cars as the country grows economically and in population. The most affordable way to purchase a car in Uganda is if the car is imported from another country, including the United States. Because of this, most of the vehicles in Uganda are imported.

There are current laws and regulations placed on importing a vehicle to Uganda and because of this, it's important to know what those laws are before you import your vehicle. If you intend staying here for an extended period, it helps to directly import your vehicle then buy a vehicle here. When you work with us, you can be sure that you are importing within the laws because A1 Auto Transport makes it easier for you.

What you need to know about Importing to Uganda.

You will find that importing to Uganda is not blocked by several rules that you cannot possibly follow. These rules are simple and within reason. Some of these rules and regulations include:

  • import a vehicle, regardless of how old/new it is.
  • can import a vehicle regardless of your age.
  • can import a vehicle that is driven on the left or right hand side.
  • A used vehicle will need to pass inspection for roadworthiness as well as emissions.

Commercial vehicles are normally imported from Japan while personal vehicles are imported mostly from the United States. Regardless of where your vehicle comes from, you will need to first have it inspected upon arrival to Uganda.

These inspection tests are necessary to ensure that the odometer readings are right and the emissions follow regulations. Your vehicle will need to be inspected before it leaves the United States. You will be issued a certificate if your vehicle passes. Make sure you have these certificates with you when you import the vehicle to show to customs. All paperwork needs to be submitted to the Uganda Revenue Authority. You will also need the following documents:

  • Car insurance.
  • Logbook of your vehicle.
  • Bill of purchase.
  • Written inventory.
  • Your original passport and driver's license.

Taxes and Duties to Pay for Importing.

Import duties are part of the general agreement on Trade and Tariffs, or GATT and the government of Ugandan. Taxes are set at the following:

  • 17% VAT.
  • 15% Import Duty.
  • 2% Import Communication.
  • 6% withholding tax.
  • 10% excise tax.

All of these will play a part in how much you pay for your import. However, the exact amount is based on CIF or cost of insurance, vehicle value, and shipping charges. Based on that the percentage of tax is levied which has to be paid to the Uganda Customs.

Uganda is landlocked so in order to import, you will need to make the Port of Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania your point of destination. You could also choose the Port of Mombasa in Kenya as well. You can pick up your vehicle once it clears customs. Working with A1 Auto Transport Service allows you the freedom to focus on other things while the transport service taxes care of the transportation process. You can find out more about importing to Uganda by contacting the Embassy of Uganda before you ship.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
