Car Shipping Durban

Shipping a car to Durban can be a very simple process as long as you know what needs to be taken care of before you make the shipping arrangements. Durban is one of the leading manufacturing hubs in all of South Africa as well as a hot spot for tourists from around the globe. With the beautiful oceanic scenery and tropical climate, it is a prime area for those who want to relocate to South Africa.

You will need to hire a professional international auto transport company to handle all of your car shipping needs from the United States to Durban. Your shipping agent will fully explain all of the regulations required by customs officials as well as necessary paperwork that is required to ship internationally. You will need to provide your driver’s license, social security number, car title, auto insurance policy and a signed Power of Attorney to the auto transport company prior to shipping.

Documents required prior to Shipping

When shipping a car to any country internationally, including   Durban, there are documents that you will need to have filled out prior to being able to ship. These are the required documents that you will need to have:

  • Driver’s License
  • Original Bill of Sale
  • Social Security Card
  • Signed Power of Attorney warrant if you will not be with the car at the port of exit

If other paperwork is needed prior to shipping, the transport agent will be able to go over all of that information with you in detail. The transport agent will also be able to go over the port nearest your home to take the car to for shipping as well as the port of entry in Durban. Before you export your car from the U.S. you need to make sure you get a final quote from the agent that includes the cost of shipping, container fee is you choose to ship by container, pick-up and delivery fee if they will need to pick-up and drop-off your car for you. The agent will also go over the different methods of shipping and the cost of each type.

Methods of Shipping Cars

RoRo Shipping- RoRo is the least inexpensive method of shipping your car to Durban. RoRo ships deliver cars, trucks, vans and other wheeled vehicles. Cars are safely driven aboard at the exit port and driven off at the entry port in Durban.

Container Shipping- Container shipping simply means you can have your car shipped inside of a container for international shipping purposes. Container shipping takes a little longer than RoRo Shipping because customs will have to inspect the containers. When you ship via container you can also ship personal and household goods along with your car internationally.

Air Shipping- Shipping by air is the fastest way to have your car shipped internationally. The car is loaded onto a cargo plane and flown to the Durban/King Skanska International Airport in Durban.

To find out more about the documents you will need prior to shipping your car, and other useful information on shipping and customs regulations when traveling internationally you can contact the U.S. Customs office for exportation laws in the U.S. and import regulations for Durban, South Africa as well as other cities and countries around the world.

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!
