Import regulations

Tanzania has very flexible laws on importing vehicles and there is no age limit on the used vehicles. However, there are higher percentage of duties and taxes applicable, if the vehicle is over 10 years.  Thus, ensure that you discuss the details of the export/import with the shipping service that is taking care of the transportation of the vehicle. Additionally, there are roadworthiness tests that need to be cleared before the car can be driven publically. If the vehicle fails the test then it will have to undergo modifications and clear it again before the Ministry of Transport in Tanzania allows it on the road.

There is a 25% import duty on all used cars and 10% to 20% VAT on all cars that are imported to Dar es Salaam. With plenty of ports in Tanzania, freight shipping is a profitable business and when you work with a reliable shipping service that specializes in international transportation such as A1 Auto Transport service, it helps to smoothen out the process.

Submission of documents

There are plenty of documents that are needed when you are shipping to Tanzania. You will need to submit these:

  • Valid driving license.
  • Original car title deed.
  • Insurance documents.
  • Passport of the owner.
  • Original bill of purchase.

Additionally the cost of the shipping will depend upon the method of shipping you select. You can choose from RORO or container shipping. When you compare the cost of both, RORO is cheaper as you only pay for the space occupied by the vehicle. In this method of shipping, you are not allowed to keep your personal things in the vehicle but only the spare tire, floor mats and car jack are allowed. While in container shipping, you have to hire the complete 20 feet or 40 feet container to secure the vehicle and transport other goods that need to be sent to Dar es Salaam.

You can contact Tanzania Revenue Authority and find the taxes and duties that are currently applicable. It will help you plan the shipping and import of vehicle better.

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!
