Ship Car To Kampala
🇺🇬 Uganda, (UG)

The largest city and capital of Uganda, Kampala is the center of trade, commerce and culture in the country. With plenty of employment opportunities, better education and allure of coming back to the home country, there has been a rise in foreigners and returning citizens staying in Kampala for an extended period. Apart from that it is more cost effective to import a vehicle than buy it in Uganda.

That is one of the reasons that most of the vehicles plying in the city are imported. That is why the regulations on vehicle import are lax and few restrictions are placed. Thus, when you are importing your vehicle from USA, it won’t be difficult as adherence to regulations and documentation needs to be completed. Working with A1 Auto Transport service makes it easy.

Specific guidelines for vehicle import

However, irrespective of the fact that the regulations are few, they still need to be adhered to as per the laws of Uganda dealing with import of vehicles. Some of the key features include:

  • No age limit on the vehicles.
  • Both old and new cars can be imported.
  • Left and right-hand drive vehicles allowed.
  • Used vehicle has to clear roadworthiness and emission tests.

Though most of the vehicles that are commercially available are imported from Japan, but if you are looking to import your vehicle from USA, the regulations remain the same. It is important to get the inspection and certification for Roadworthiness and emissions completed in USA, before you ship out the vehicle from there.

The ‘Roadworthiness’ tests ensure that the odometer readings are correct and the emissions are in synch with the regulations. These inspections and tests need to be done in USA before you ship out the vehicle. The certificates need to be attached with the documents that need to be submitted, to the Uganda Revenue Authority along with these important documents:

  • Logbook of the vehicle.
  • Written inventory.
  • Original passport/driving license- proof of ownership.
  • Bill of car purchase.
  • Insurance of car.

Tax and duties

The import duties are set as per the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) and the Ugandan government has set the taxes as 17% VAT, 15% of import duty, 2% import communication and the 6% withholding tax and 10% excise tax. That is why it is important to add in the cost when the total cost is being calculated.

As Uganda is a landlocked country, you will need to reach the Port of Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania or the Port of Mombasa in Kenya to collect the vehicle and arrange for further transportation to Kampala. However, when you work with an international shipping service like A1 Auto Transport, we take care of the international logistics. Whether it is shipping the vehicle from US or land transporting t to Uganda from Tanzania or Kenya, we do it with ease as we have a strong network of shipping agents all over the world.

You can call us or contact the Embassy of Uganda to know more about the current laws and regulations.

Satisfied Customers

“Your sales office was most informative. They provided me with quick quote as well as followed up on my intended shipping date. I found the overall service outstanding. The pick up date was delayed once but the vehicle was promptly picked up on the second scheduled date. I was informed of the delay in good and timely manner. The vehicle arrived on time and in good condition. I did not use the satelite tracking but I would absolutely, should I ever find myself in need of auto transport services.”

“I don’t normally write reviews for practically anything, but I feel like I have to make an exception for A1 Auto Transport. I couldn’t recommend this company enough for such a job well done. My son and I run a small auto repair business, and we needed a client’s car moved to Arkansas in less than 2 days. We were so pressed for time that we even considered just going for the same transport people we worked with last spring, who weren’t so hot on the service and communications part of the deal. After many hours going through hundreds of calls and emails from all these companies offering ridiculous rates (not to mention somewhat suspicious reviews), we were about ready to give up. Finally, I got a call from one of the A1 staff named Joe. Virtually every person you speak with from this company is very polite, professional, and straightforward. They have a way of assuring you the process is not as complicated as you thought. Joe gave us a reasonable quote that he promised will not “mysteriously” change after the whole transaction is completed. He made sure to update us all the way to Arkansas. Talk about a job well done at a competitive price tag, plain and simple. Tell you the truth, that’s all you’d ever need to succeed in any kind of work. I’m definitely staying with A1 Auto Transport, no doubt about it.”

“Hi, Nicole: I just want to let you know how I am impressed with your company's efficiency in scheduling and customer service. The local transportation carrier just picked up my newly purchased car yesterday in Spring Lake, NJ and it is on the way to VA. I was told it will be a door-to-door delivery. Since I am still out of town and won't be back to Glen Allen, VA until 1/2/2006. I was wondering whether I may schedule the delivery date any time after 1/2. Thank you for the timely assistance from both you and Teresa, which made the transaction and delivery so smooth at the short notice in the holiday season. Your company's commitment to quality and customer satisfaction are really top-notched. Happy New Year and Regards.”

“Finding a good company to transport my Prius seemed a bit difficult, but I wanted to call a few of them anyway before going for a broker. I read a few reviews on A1 Auto Transport and decided on them. The experience was very satisfactory. A1 is awesome! Joe answered the phone the first time I called and was professional and very friendly. Communication was really easy throughout the move. Even my emails got answered within minutes, which really goes to show how on top of things he is. There was no damage to my car during transport, and it arrived in Hawaii on time. Great service!”

“I work for a large construction company in Connecticut, and let me tell you one thing about moving expensive heavy equipment and vehicles across the country: it can be challenging, and it takes more than one gutsy, smart guy to execute the job perfectly. You need an entire crew of intelligent, hardworking professionals that you can really trust, and A1 Auto Transport is precisely that. As a business person myself, I’ve set up a rigid standard over the years and I now look for certain details before making a critical business decision: competitive cost, quality of service, reputability, and extensive experience in the industry. We feel that we’ve made a truly wise decision in working with A1 Auto Transport. Their high quality service has contributed to the success of our own company, and they exceed our expectations every time.”
