Get Your Car On Island Time

  • You will need a tax registration number to transport anything into Jamaica. In order to get this, apply via the Jamaican Tax Administration. This has to be done before you can even properly book auto transport to Jamaica, even if you are working through a company.
  • Like any form of international travel, knowing where you are traveling is the key to staying safe. Stick with the well-known areas of the country as crime is rampant on this tiny island nation. Major cities are best, as are tourist-friendly resort areas if you are just visiting.
  • If you are planning to sell your vehicle in Jamaica, then you are in for a wait. Jamaican law prohibits the sale of a newly exported vehicle in-country for at least a year; if it is damaged before, during or directly after shipping, then you must wait at least three years before selling it.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping is one of the most common ways to export a vehicle to Jamaica. With this method, the car is rolled onto the boat and then rolled off upon its final arrival. The risk is greater with this type of shipping; however, the payoff is that the car does not have to be prepped to be in a container and the auto shipping handlers can better keep an eye on it during transport.

Experienced Auto Shipping to Jamaica

Situated in the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica is a large island that many people think: more than 4,000 miles to be exact. The Port of Kingston is the biggest in this country and is where most, if not all, of auto transport shipping to Jamaica takes place. Prior to arriving in the country, there are several key documents that you must have: your passport, a license to import vehicles, the vehicle title, a bill of sale and a tax compliance certificate.

The Jamaican Customs division has its own rules and regulations for bringing a vehicle into the country. From obtaining the proper tax certificates to the additional paperwork needed, checking this site before embarking on a trip to Jamaica with the car not far behind is prudent to be sure you are following all of the rules properly.

The Financials of Island Shipping

Prepare to pay a decent tax for your vehicle upon going through Customs when you arrive in Jamaica. The auto shipping company will negotiate this for you when you book, but be prepared: you may have to pay up to 67% of the value of the vehicle as a duty upon arriving in the country. As the size of the motor in the car rises, the cost generally tends to get higher.

Shipping A Car To Jamaica

If you are planning to ship your vehicle to Jamaica, it cannot be more than four years old. If you are a resident of this island country and have been away for a few years, then you are allowed to bring back with you two vehicles during a three-year period. However, even in this instance, you would need to have the appropriate paperwork.

Your driver’s license is valid upon arriving in Jamaica and you can drive your newly transported vehicle for one year. After that point, the law requires that you get a Jamaican driver’s license.

You need insurance in Jamaica. This is something to check with your chosen auto transport company, as you are not going to be permitted to drive away from Customs until you are able to provide proof of insurance with a Jamaican company.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Jamaica

Hiring international transporters with years of experience and all the proper credentials is the greatest way to have your heavy equipment or oversized cargo shipped to Jamaica. When you hire a reliable shipping company such as A1 Auto Transport, you can expect that your cargo will be delivered safe and sound with very little concerns. With connections to the highest quality shipping equipment and most current shipping technologies, we are positive that we can ship your oversized cargo to another nation successfully.

Fulfilling all the import requirements of Jamaica may be the toughest part of the transport process for many. Luckily, at A1 we have an understanding of these laws and what taxes must be paid before you can earn the certificate of import approval from Customs.

International Shipping Methods for Oversized Cargo and Heavy Equipment

The methods offered to you through A1 for your transport to Jamaica will be determined after you give our representatives a little information regarding the type of cargo you have to ship. However, to give you more insight, here are the four shipping options we have to offer...

  • Flat Rack Shipping
  • Container Shipping
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping

RoRo, LoLo and flat rack are all safe overseas, open air shipping methods. Although your cargo is left open to outside elements such as inclement weather during its transport, we do add on free insurance coverage to each of our customers’ shipping service packages. If our coverage doesn’t protect the full value of your heavy equipment, we do offer extra insurance protection plans at additional costs. Container shipping is our service that provides the most protection. Nevertheless, this is only available to those with heavy equipment that can fit inside a 40ft container.

Satisfied Customers

“Mark, I'm gratified when companies take customer service seriously. Please feel free to share the important fact that my experience with A-1 was not particularly extraordinary'and that is the whole point! Things happened the way they were supposed to happen, no muss, no fuss. A friendly driver and courteous pick up folks. Picked up right on schedule. The ability to track my car was great because I could 'guesstimate' when it might arrive and plan accordingly. Now then, you should also know that I chose A-1 because of E-Bay. Never underestimate the power of positive feedback. I did not purchase the service through E-Bay, but I darn sure checked out your feedbacks! And they were very good. In addition, your web site is very user friendly and made my reservations a breeze. Plus, my car arrived in perfect condition. You and your entire staff are to be commended for making my experience routine. That's the goal! Thanks again everybody. Bob C. -Β Greenville, South Carolina”

“It was good experience with your sales and custumer service department.Β I used the UPS tracking online service & I would use your service again. Thanks!”

“I called over 5 companies and a bunch of people on uship with no success. I found A1 Auto Transport first, and after a lot more unnecessary research, I stuck with it. I found talking to Joe simple and straight forward. He presented a summary of the process, answered the few questions I had with ease, and offered several transportation options for me to choose from. The driver arrived at 10 am as promised, though I was half an hour late. I apologized and he understood. However, from his face I could tell he was tired. After asking him about it, he explained he had another transport the day before and had to drive until 4 am. I was a bit worried, but he reassured me nothing will happen to my car. He seemed experienced, so I let it be. After going around it several time, looking at every nook and cranny and taking several pictures, he requested I remove the spoiler, so it wouldn’t fly into another car during transport. He grabbed a toolbox from his truck and helped with this as well. He arrived in Florida in the morning, 2 days later. Since the time window was 3-5 days, I was a bit unprepared, yet happy to get it sooner. I picked it up from la parking lot nearby, and it was in perfect condition. Thank you Joe!”

“Thank you so much for the quick and painless transport of our 2002 Honda Civic. We dropped it off in California, forgot about it in the hustle and bustle of moving to Texas, then tracked it "for fun" once we arrived. The car arrived within the stated timeframe and everyone involved was courteous and professional. Great decision, excellent pricing! Regards, Robert P.”

“I recently contacted your company regarding the transport of a car I had purchased in South Dakota and needed brought to Okalahoma. First of all your quoted price was half that of your nearest competition, secondly the actual transport took only a few days and finally your driver couldn't have been more professional. Thanks for the value and quality of service. If you ever need a reference I'm your guy. Regards, Walt Thompson”
