Ship Car To Lira
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฌ 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.
  • Proofย  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.

Satisfied Customers

“I would just like to thank you for an excellent job in moving my car cross country. I will be using you again in the future, and have recommended you to others that will be moving cars shortly. Once again it was a pleasure to do business with you, and thanks again.”

“I was asked by my partner to call A1 Auto Transport, though I was hesitant to speak with call center agents since I had bad experiences with them. Believe me, I find it really stressful to deal with them. Some would even tell you things you want to hear just to make you get off the phone, but they won't fulfil their promises. When I spoke with A1 about getting a car to Idaho, I was thinking it was going to be the same experience, but I was surprised. Their way of communication was entirely different. It was a seamless process. This made me think being a valued client can still be felt. My partner even thanked me since all his requests were processed the way he wanted. He thought I was assertive enough, since his requests were so specific. A1 Auto Transport made it easy for me. Can't think of any complaints.”

“My vehicle beat me across the country! Thanks for the incredible service!”

“The only thing I can say about A1 Auto Transport and Joe is theyโ€™re the only transport company youโ€™ll ever need. They moved our vehicle to Virginia in February and the car got there on the exact day they promised. The driver notified us all throughout the transport. After a couple months, we had to go back to Rhode Island thanks to work. I found someone cheaper and figured Iโ€™d save a couple bucks. Big mistake. The driver was 10 hours late. He arrived at 2 am, woke up our kids, then yelled at us for complaining about it. I showed him the finger and he took off, leaving our cars stuck in the driveway. We had to catch a flight in 4 days. I called Joe. He was on vacation, and he still made it 1 day before our flight to pick up our cars. The driver was excellent, professional, and super friendly. Transportation went smoothly and we got our vehicles back 6 hours early. We met Joe once more when picking them up, and it was just perfect. As far as weโ€™re concerned, theyโ€™re the perfect company.”

“For one reason or another, shipping a car between states makes me a bit worried. Using another company prior to A1 Auto Transport which left a huge scratch on my car didnโ€™t help ease my trust issues either. The quote Joe gave me wasnโ€™t the lowest on my list (I did a ton of research this time), but I was less interested in getting a deal as I was in getting my car to Illinois safely. I paid a deposit after he picked up my car. By that point, it was in his hands. I was glad he called so much during transport. He mustโ€™ve felt I was stressed out by the whole experience. Fortunately, my worries were for nothing. This company pulled through and brought my car as I left it. Thank you Joe!”
