Ship Car To Kitwe

🇿🇲 Zambia, (ZM)

Ship Car To Kitwe
🇿🇲 Zambia, (ZM)

The second largest city in Zambia is Kitwe. It is the most commercially developed as well as the industrial areas in the entire nation. Kitwe has many mines that are located on the North Western side of the country.

If you want to come to Kitwe, you may want to bring your vehicle over while you are there. You will be able to travel and go wherever you want to while you are staying there. This will avoid language barriers as well as currency issues trying to pay for a taxi. When dealing with public transportation it's not always easy in Zambia so having your own vehicle will pay off.

Driving in Zambia.

There are five major roads traveled in Zambia and they are all narrow. There are other roadways in the Zambia but they are not in the best shape. All roads lead to all destinations that this country is well known for. The main way to get around in Zambia is the railway. Having a vehicle here in Zambia during your stay will be a great idea.

It's not very easy to get a vehicle imported to Zambia. There are currently strict laws about importing vehicles that will include a Letter of Authority. You will also need an import permit. You can contact the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) for more information about what will be needed when transporting in order to get your vehicle into the country. If you are a diplomat coming to Zambia, you will need to allow at least twenty days for obtaining the correct documentation. In order to get through Zambia Revenue Authority quicker, you may want to make arrangements so you can have everything ready for your arrival in Zambia to avoid any delays.

Documentation Needed for Shipping to Kitwe.

If your vehicle is over twenty five years old, it will not be allowed into Zambia. In order to present your vehicle for shipment, you will need to have the following documentation prepared:

  • Proof of ownership.
  • Customs release notification form.
  • Letter of Authority.
  • Title and Registration.
  • Invoice of the vehicle where you purchased it.
  • Import Permit.

Left handed motor vehicles are not allowed to be imported into Zambia. You can only ship one vehicle into Zambia. You will be expected to pay any taxes which are based on the value of your car, if the value of your car is more than $5,000 and the number of miles on it is high. If the vehicle you are shipping to Zambia is new, you will need to pay taxes of 25% of the value of the vehicle and 17.5% VAT. You will also need to provide all the invoices and documentation of the vehicle as well.

Methods of Shipping a Vehicle to Zambia.

You can choose any of the following shipping methods:

  • Air shipping - This is a very costly method of shipping to Zambia and is not always the shipping method most chosen
  • Roll On/ Roll Off - This type of shipping method involves your vehicle being driven onto the ship and then rolled off the ship. Nothing can be in the vehicle except for the spare tire, the floor mats, and the car jack.
  • Container shipping is another option for importing a vehicle. You can fill a container with anything that you want to ship including your car. You can reduce the cost of shipping by sharing the container with someone else.

There are no direct sea ports to Zambia because it is landlocked. You will need have your vehicles shipped to the closest port in Tanzania and have A1 Auto Transport take care of the logistics.

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!
