Ship Car To Kandahar

Car Shipping Kandahar

Kandahar is a densely populated and second-largest city in Afghanistan. There may be many reasons if you intend moving to Afghanistan for an extended period of time or even a few months. A landlocked country, Afghanistan has rugged terrain and unreliable public transportation, which is one of the reasons it would be worth having a personal vehicle here. You will be able to avoid the barriers of language and can travel with greater ease when you are in Kandahar.

Specific limitations on import.

There are limitations on vehicle import as the Afghan government only allows diplomats, and foreigners with work permits and resident visas to bring in vehicles. The Afghan Custom Department levies 25% of the vehicle’s value as import tax. Although most expatriates and foreign national have to pay it, the diplomats have immunity from import tax on personal vehicles.

Before you start the process of importing the vehicle, it is better to find a reliable international shipping service that has experience transporting vehicles to Afghanistan with ease.  And that is why A1 Auto Transport service is needed. We will help you submit the requisite documentations at the U.S Customs and Border Protection and then with the custom officials at Kandahar. These documents are:

  • Title deed.
  • Registration of the vehicle.
  • Detailed vehicle purchase bill.
  • Shipping documents and Insurance policy.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Ownership proof- passport.
  • U.S-issued driving license.

Eligibility for Exemption.

The diplomats are exempted from paying the custom duties and taxes levied by the government in Kandahar. However, to prove their eligibility, they have to show and submit a few documents. These are:

  • Tax exemption form.
  • Diplomat’s passport and copies.
  • Request letter for Customs clearances from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Finance.
  • Letter from Embassy.

Due to instability, red tape and political turmoil, delays are not uncommon and import clearances can take time. Additionally, regulations and laws change quickly and even diplomatic procedures take over a week.  This is one of the reasons that you need to work with us. We recommend that you submit the documents with us in advance, even before the shipment arrives in Kandahar as the processing time might take a long period and even if additional documents are needed, there will be time to arrange them. However your presence is important when the car arrives in the city.

Ways to transport the vehicle.

As Afghanistan is a landlocked nation, all sea faring freight goes through the ports in Pakistan or Iran and is then driven across to Afghanistan or is loaded on multi-carriers and transported over land to Kandahar. You can use barrage shipping through river Amu Darya. However, when you are shipping from USA, the most commonly used methods include:

  • Roll-on/Roll-Off (RORO): This is the most cost effective method and the car is not secured within a container but driven on the ship at the US port and driven off at the last port of destination in Pakistan or Iran, as specified. You are only allowed to keep a set of keys, jack and a spare tire while all personal items have to be removed. You will only pay for the space that the car was parked on.
  • Ship by container: The other method adds an extra layer of security as the vehicle is packed along with household goods within 20 feet or 40 feet container. This helps to protect the vehicle from the weather conditions and collision damage. You can put your personal items inside the container without any restrictions. However, this is expensive as you will have to pay for the container and the space occupied by it.

To know more about the import eligibility, details and the current laws, contact the Embassy of Afghanistan.

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!
