Ship Car To Francistown

🇧🇼 Botswana, (BW)

Ship Car To Francistown
🇧🇼 Botswana, (BW)

Car Shipping Francistown

The second largest city in Botswana, Francistown is 250 miles away from Gaborone, the capital of Botswana. Scenically located at the confluence of Inchwe and Tati rivers, the city is a hub of economic activities and has a number of employment opportunities.

A1 Auto Transport makes your shipment easier

Shipping your vehicle from USA to Francistown is comparatively easy as there are few regulations and there aren’t restrictions on importing vehicles. However, you need to be aware that the roadways are rugged and unpaved in most parts of the city and only about quarter of the roads might be paved. Thus, it makes sense to import SUVs or 4-wheel drives, which can traverse over the rugged terrain.

Additionally, it is import to discuss all aspects of the shipping requirements with the international shipping agents at A1 Auto Transport service. From picking the nearest port in USA to the method of shipping and calculating the total cost, they will do it all. Additionally, you will need to decide whether to pay extra and opt for ‘door to port’ service, where the shipping service will pick your vehicle from the doorstep and deliver it to the domestic US port or you want to save more by driving it on your own.

Botswana Motor vehicle regulations.

With little restrictions and flexible laws on import of vehicles, you need to ensure that you adhere to the motor vehicle requirements and documentation which include:

  • Proof of owning the vehicle for 1 year before import.
  • Submit the Form IC.2.
  • Import permit authorized by Committee of Commerce.
  • Original Bill of Sale.
  • Two copies of the Form CE101.
  • Current and valid passport/driving license of owner.
  • Certificate of Clearance from the police.

Apart from the duties and import tax, there is a National Road Safety Fund tax of around US$5 that has to be paid by all imported vehicles annually in December. Contact the Botswana Embassy for further details on the latest regulations.

As there are no ports in Botswana, you are required to ship your vehicle to Durban in South Africa and then have the vehicle driven across to Francistown. Although this adds to the freight charges, there isn’t any other option. Thus, it is best to get the assistance of A1 Auto Transport service in ensuring that all rules and regulations are followed for safe transit and quick delivery of the vehicle in Francistown. It is essential that you get the interior of the car cleaned completely and it is transported to the port of USA when there are no personal items within the car, especially if you are shipping by RORO.

Cost and methods of freight shipping.

The cost of the shipping will be calculated based on the methods of shipping, freight insurance and the price on the vehicle. The shipping company representatives will be able to help you with the details. There are two basic methods to freight ship your vehicle namely:

  • Container shipping: Your vehicle is put within a large 20 feet or 40 feet container and if you are moving to Botswana you can put your household goods along with the vehicle. This method works well when you have an expensive vehicle to ship as it protects the car from the ravages of weather while in transit.
  • RORO: This is the most common method of shipping to Francistown and rest of the cities in Botswana. Your car is driven on board the ship’s deck and secured for transit. At the last port of destination, the vehicle is driven off the deck using ramps. As the vehicle has to be transported on the open deck, it is devoid of any personal items, and only minimum fuel is allowed in the tank.

Additionally, make sure that all of the documents are completed before you ship so that there are no delays at the U.S port or at the Botswana border.  You can contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency and the Botswana Embassy for more details.

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!
