Ship Car To Lira
🇺🇬 Uganda, (UG)

One of the larger cities in Uganda, Lira is situated about 200 miles from Kampala, the capital of the country. As the center of the Lira district, the city of Lira is the administrative cultural, commercial hub of the region.

There may be many reasons to move to Lira but the fact remains that if you are moving from USA, it is good to know about the driving conditions and requirements in Uganda, before you import your vehicle here. With constant development in the country over the last few years, more people look forward to owning vehicles, but find it easier to buy imported cars than buying it in Uganda. To keep up with the demand, the import regulations are easy so if you hire A1 Auto Transport service, the pioneers in international shipping industry, you can have your vehicle with you in a few weeks.

However, even though the rules are lax, there are many procedures and documents that you need to consider. We will help you at every step to ensure that there are no logistics issue that arises as Uganda is a landlocked country and the closest ports are in Kenya and Tanzania. Irrespective of the location of the port you pick, we will not only take the delivery but transport it across the border to Lira with the assistance of our local shipping agents.

Requirements and documentation.

With easy going rules, most of the cars for commercial purposes are imported from Japan but the rules for personal import remain the same. You are allowed to import both left hand driven vehicle and right hand driven as both are in use on the roads. Additionally, Uganda laws allow both new and old vehicles to be imported and there are no age restrictions to adhere to. However, used vehicles have to clear the pre-shipping inspections from the country of origination i.e. USA in your case. The two essential certifications accompanying the rest of the documents include:

  • Emission certificate.
  • Roadworthiness certificate.

These tests ensure that the vehicle adheres to the environment regulations of Uganda and the odometer readings are accurate. It is a guarantee that the vehicle is operable and in good condition.

Taxes and duties.

As per the method of tax evaluation on the imported vehicles, it comes under the purview of General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT). That is why the cost of the vehicle, insurance and freight charges are considered. Depending on these variables, the taxes include:

  • 15%import duty.
  • 17% VAT.
  • 2% import commission.
  • 6% Withholding tax.
  • Additional 10% excise duty (in some cases only)

However, before the vehicle can reach Uganda, there are plenty of documents that have to be submitted to ensure the complete process is legal. Some of the documents that have to be submitted to U.S Customs, at least 72 hours before the vehicle leave the U.S port and minimum of 10 days before it reaches Lira; the Uganda Revenue Authority needs these:

  • Bill of Lading.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Proof  of ownership- passport/license.
  • Purchase invoice of the vehicle.
  • Logbook of the vehicle .

To know more about the process, import regulations and current updates on the custom duties, contact the Embassy of Uganda.

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!
