Ship Car To Johannesburg
🇿🇦 South Africa, (ZA)

When you move to the scenic State of Johannesburg in South Africa, you may want to import your car so you will be able to drive to work or to go for a night out with coworkers or friends. Having to hire a car can be very expensive financially and you will find that you can actually save money when you have your car shipped overseas to Johannesburg. Johannesburg, which residents also call Jozi, has the most decadent weather of any State in South Africa. Keep in mind that seasons in Johannesburg are opposite to those in the U.S. The warmer months are the ones that are typically winter in the U.S. The roads are well developed through the area and there is an abundance of man-made forestry to enjoy while traveling.

You’ll want to have an auto shipping agency situated in the United States ship your car to Johannesburg. The company will be able to arrange to pick your car up in the U.S. and deliver it to the port for you. They can also have the car picked up in Johannesburg if you are not able to personally drive it to your destination. You will have to give the shipping agent specific paperwork and documents before your car is able to be shipped overseas. The legal documents will include your driver’s license, social security number, insurance paperwork and a signed Power of Attorney form. Your agent will discuss in detail any other necessary paperwork or specifics concerning your car shipment as well as thoroughly go over the cost of shipping and other details that you will need to be aware of.

How can I ship to Johannesburg?

Once you have hired the transport company, your agent will fully explain all shipping information and will assist you with explaining the different types of available shipping from the U.S. to Johannesburg. Your choices will most likely be Roro , Container or Air Shipping to transport to Johannesburg. RORO Shipping lets your car be rolled directly onto the cargo ship and then tightly tethered onto the cargo dock for shipping. When the ship gets to the port in Johannesburg, the car is then rolled off the ship and you will be able to drive it through the customs check area. Roro is the most utilized way to ship cars overseas. Container Shipping makes it possible to ship items other than your car when you need to ship overseas. It’s a little bit more expensive than shipping by Roro but is nice to use when you need to completely relocate and need your household moved along with your car. For those who need to ship a classic or luxury car or may need their car in a more rapid amount of time, air shipping is also available. Shipping by air is the fastest way to ship internationally. Your agent will discuss the variables in each type of shipping and will be able to provide you with a detailed quote showing the total cost to ship your car to Johannesburg from the United States.

For more information on shipping abroad, export and import laws and regulations worldwide and important documents and safety tips for traveling internationally you can contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency.

Satisfied Customers

“I had a great time transporting my car to California thanks A1 Auto Transport. Joe’s quote was reasonable and his reasoning and explanations were spot on. He couldn’t make it to the pickup, but he did call to make sure things were ok. The driver inspected my car, and I appreciated his professionalism. While it was on its way, Joe regularly sent me updates on its location through text. He estimated it would arrive in 5-6 days, and it was so. I was also given the contact information of my driver, so I could call both him and Joe if I ever felt the need to. My car got to Sacramento, California on the 5th day, and it was great to see it was well. There wasn’t any damage done to it during transit. This fact, Joe’s updates, and the fact that they met their deadline makes me recommend A1 Auto Transport as one of the best auto transport companies out there. It’s the 3rd company I’ve used to move a vehicle, and it will likely also be the 4th.”

“I got a ton of quotes from companies and brokers until I got to A1 Auto Transport. Brokers were quite sneaky. The rate was good, but it wasn’t the actual quote. They mentioned the driver or their commission only, so there was bound to be more I had to pay down the line. I got just one decent quote, but the timing wasn’t right. He could only pick up my car on Monday, and I needed it to leave for Georgia on Friday. After this company, I tried A1 Auto Transport. I called Joe on Tuesday, and he answered promptly. He agreed to pick my car on Friday and offered to do it sooner. But since I needed it until then, I insisted on my date and he did as I wanted. The driver got it delivered on Saturday, as promised, but 20 minutes early. I’ve heard stories of car transports being delayed for several days due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, so I was glad this did not happen to me. I’m very happy with the service, and although I don’t have any other cars to move in the foreseeable future, I’ll remember A1 Auto Transport just in case.”

“This is the first time I have moved my vehicle this way. I was kind of scared at first not knowing much about how it works. I ended up working with John and he expalined in detail how it all works, My car was delivered a little late (2 days) but the team more than made up for it with their communication. Thanks again.”

“Actually received a call from the driver about an hour after I sent the message and the car was delivered that night. The service and speed I received was unbelievable! To place an order on Saturday and receive my car on Tuesday from Arkansas to Michigan is just awesome. Best shipping I have experienced and I have shipped a few cars in the past. Thanks a bunch, K. Wesley Lehman, Bertram, Wesley, Inc.”

“I gave a broker a full month to find me a carrier before I found Joe on my own. Just in time, as I had 5 days left for the transport. My car arrived in Wisconsin in good condition and on time. Joe brought me peace of mind and made a potentially nightmarish process surprisingly simple. I can’t thank you enough for being so reliable and trustworthy. Since then, I’ve recommended A1 to a couple of acquaintances, and they were all impressed with the service. They all found Joe a pleasure to talk to and the drivers prompt and professional.”
