*Prices are for 1 car in a dedicated 20ft container. This is the safest and most reliable way to transport a vehicle internationally. Other items may be included in the container to help save you money when moving.

When heading to the Democratic Republic of the Congo for an extended stay or residence, consider having a personal vehicle shipped/exported. This will only prove to be a valuable asset out in the Congo and will allow the freedom of travel. With so much to do and see, an automobile will prove to be helpful.

Water transportation is the most used form of public transit in the Congo. The harsh climates make it hard to maintain railways and roadways, yet without roads, reaching all regions of the Congo would be nearly impossible. So, if vehicle shipment is a possibility, make sure the vehicle is in great shape and can withstand the harsh climate and rough roadways.

About the Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is located in Central Africa. It is the 11th largest country in the world. It consists mostly of rainforest and many come there to study the wildlife.

The rainfall is heavy and thunderstorms are persistent, making the Congo full of endangered species and wildlife. Gorillas, elephants, and hippopotamus are just a few of the species that can be found roaming the mountains and rough terrains.

The Methods of Shipping from the U.S.

There are various automobile shipping/importing methods that can be chosen from. Regardless of the type of vehicle being shipped/imported, there are two main forms of shipping that people tend to use for international vehicle shipping.

The RO/RO shipping method is the cheapest. The car must be completely empty. Only a car jack, floor mats and a spare tire may be included in the vehicle. The car will then roll onto the ship and roll off of it when it reaches the port. The owner must be present when it arrives.

The container method is a bit pricier, but it allows a person to ship other belongings with the vehicle. The automobile can be filled with property as well as the container. There are several containers to select from and they can be split with another individual. This will help to ease the costs.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To The Congo

When shipping/exporting a vehicle to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, make sure to have the following documentation on hand:

  1. Original title and vehicle registration (registration card)
  2. Bill of lading
  3. Packing (freight) invoice
  4. Receipt of duties and taxes paid
  5. Passport and picture ID or license
  6. Proof of purchase

Contact the Embassy of the Democratic Republic of the Congo for current information in regards to vehicle shipment. Also, make sure that there is transportation prepared on the day that the vehicle is due to arrive in Congo. The vehicle owner will need to be there for its pickup.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To the Democratic Republic of the Congo

You might assume that shipping your heavy equipment or oversized cargo out of the U.S. and to the Democratic Republic of the Congo is too much of a challenge. By hiring longstanding transporters to tend to the transport, you can relax knowing your cargo is in good hands. Luckily, at A1 Auto Transport we have access to all the best transport equipment and technology. We know we can ship your cargo affordably and safely to the Congo without any concern. Here are some types of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we’ve shipped internationally in the past…

  • Tractors
  • Road Rollers
  • Asphalt Pavers
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Dump Trucks
  • RV’s
  • Bulldozers
  • Scrapers
  • Excavators
  • Cranes
  • Engines
  • Pile Drivers and more…

The way your heavy equipment or oversized equipment is shipped overseas depends on the type of cargo it is. Even so, no matter the details of your international transport services, you will receive free insurance coverage. This coverage may not protect the entire value of your equipment but we do have additional insurance options if you’re concerned for the security of your cargo during its travels overseas.

Transporting Your Cargo Overseas

When you call in to schedule your transport and talk over your options, our representatives will help you make any decisions regarding your future shipping process. To provide you with a little information concerning our different shipping options, continue reading below.

  • The Lift On/Lift Off method of transport is also referred to as LoLo. It is an affordable shipping service that requires the use of a crane to lift your inoperable or crated cargo onto the ship.
  • The Roll On/Roll Off shipping method is also called RoRo shipping and it is our most popular and affordable option. This particular open air service requires your vehicle to have the ability to roll onto and off of the ship with the help of a ramp.
  • The Flat Rack shipping method secures your cargo to an open rack or metal frame. It is then carefully placed aboard the ship.
  • Container shipping is for heavy cargo that can fit into a 40ft shipping container. Since this method is the most secure form of transport, it tends to be pricier than the other transport options available.

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!

Testimonial by Cristine Benoit

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!
