Ship Car To Jinja

🇺🇬 Uganda, (UG)

Ship Car To Jinja
🇺🇬 Uganda, (UG)

The third largest city, Jinja in Uganda is situated about 50 miles from the capital city of Kampala. It is located at the shore of Lake Victoria, which is the source of the beautiful White Nile. With better development and urbanization, most people in the city need a vehicle, and find it cheaper to buy an imported vehicle than buying it in Uganda. With a constant influx of vehicles in the country, there are little restrictions placed on auto imports.

Thus, if you are moving to Jinja, it helps to have your own vehicle imported from USA. Though there is no age limit on imported vehicle, it is important that the vehicle adheres to the emission standards and can run with ease on the roads.

Motor vehicle regulations.

Apart from flexible import rules, the vehicle that you import can be new or old and can be left hand driven and right hand driven as the Uganda Custom laws allow for both side driven vehicles. Additionally, there are some regulations that have to be followed:

  • Road worthiness inspection has to be followed and the certificate issued from USA.
  • Complete inspection of the vehicle.
  • Odometer proof of the accurate reading.
  • Emission test certificate.

You will need these certificates from USA as pre-shipping inspections, before the vehicle is shipped out from the U.S port.

Documentation, Tariff and import duties.

The duty imposed on vehicles being imported is fixed by the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT). The value of the vehicle, freight and insurance charges are calculated and then the 15% import duty is levied. Additionally, there is a 17% VAT, 6% withholding charges and 2% and there is an excise duty of 10% on luxury vehicles.

As with any import, it has to be verified and ensured that it is legal. That is why there are a host of documents that have to be submitted at the U.S Customs and at the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA). When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we take care of the details. However, we will need the listed documents so that they can be submitted as needed:

  • Shipping permissions, including Bill of Lading.
  • 3 copies of inventory of the shipment.
  • Original passport of the owner.
  • Purchase invoice of the vehicle.
  • Car logbook.
  • Car insurance.
  • Title deed.
  • Registration documents.

Your vehicle will be shipped from the domestic U.S port to the port of Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania or the Port of Mombasa in Kenya, as Uganda is a landlocked country. However, A1 Auto Transport Company will take care of all requirements and ensue that your vehicle is transported by land to Jinja. To know more about the import requirements, please contact the Embassy of Uganda.

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!
