Ship Car To Kathmandu
🇳🇵 Nepal, (NP)

The largest municipality and the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu holds the distinction of being the SAARC headquarters. One of the top tourist destinations in Asia, the city is well-connected by air and road transportation. Whether you intend being here for a short stay or on a more permanent basis, it can be an asset to have your own vehicle. Expatriates, diplomats and even foreign students prefer having their own car when they are here on a longer stay as public transportation facilities are poor.

However, as it is a mountainous region, importing a vehicle from US can be time consuming but not impossible. You can save a lot of stress by hiring A1 Auto Transport service, as we have immense experience shipping vehicle to land-locked countries.

About Nepal Customs and Eligibility

It is important to know that vehicles older than 5 years are not allowed into the country by Nepal Customs department, it is essential that the shipped vehicle complies with the latest Nepal Vehicle Mass Emission Standard. You don’t have to pay the custom tax and duties if you are importing the vehicle for less than six months, but it is better that you check with the Nepal Embassy, as rules keep changing or you can call in A1 Auto Transport service to know about the latest rules and regulations.

Essential documentation to submit

As with any import, there are plenty of documents to submit and here is the list of documentations that would be needed by the domestic U.S port authorities and the Nepal customs:

  • Purchase invoice of the vehicle with all pertinent information on chassis, model and engine number.
  • Ownership of the car proof.
  • Owners’ ID and passport.
  • Current insurance and title deed.

After your car has reached Kathmandu, you will need Custom’s clearance before it is delivered to you, as the owner. At A1 Auto Transport service, we ensure that we’ll get the needful done so that there is no delay in clearance. Although different countries have varied custom duties, in Nepal, the calculation is done on the value of the vehicle which includes the market price of the vehicle, insurance and freight charges that are applicable. Additionally, 13% VAT is also imposed and has to be paid before delivery of the vehicle.

However, diplomats and VIPs are exempt from paying these duties and custom taxes, on submission of the adequate documents to be eligible for exemption. You need to be aware that these duties and taxes are applicable when you are importing the vehicle permanently or for over 6 months in Kathmandu.

Ways to ship to vehicles to Kathmandu

As Kathmandu is in a landlocked country, all vehicles are shipped to Kolkata in India and then transported by road crossing the borders to Nepal. When you ship your car from USA, to Kolkata, you can use two methods, namely:

  • RORO: Your vehicle is driven on board the freight ship harnessed and secured on the deck and driven off at the port of delivery in Kolkata.  However to ensure a speedy clearance, you will need to adhere to specific rules including- steam cleaning the vehicle stripping it of all personal accessories, leaving only the spare tire, keys and quarter tank of fuel only. Air conditioning gas has to be removed before it is shipped.
  • Container Shipping: You can hire a 20 feet or 40 feet container and secure your vehicle along with other household or personal goods for transit. This is an expensive proposition as compared to RORO but your vehicle is sealed inside a container and only opened at the port of destination.

It is best to know all of the details on the latest regulations for import of vehicles to Nepal. You can check the Nepal Embassy website and get the details or call in A1 Auto Transport service today.

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!
