Proper documentation.

Knowledge about the customs regulations and procedures along with the requisite documentation is essential and that is where A1 Auto Transport steps in. We have been shipping automobiles to Angola for years and understand the internal working of the customs department, ensuring faster deliveries and quick clearances. It is best to have the documents in order so there is no reason for delay. We will need you to submit:

  • Proof of ownership.
  • Cartao de Contribuinte (tax card).
  • Car title deed.
  • Purchase invoice for the vehicle.
  • Valid insurance policy.
  • PIP number allocated to the importer.
  • CNCA certificate.
  • Visa/work permit.
  • Bill of Lading.

Specific vehicle regulations.

Among few of the African countries, Angola government requires that the pre-shipping inspections are done, before the vehicle is shipped out of USA. You can get the information at Angola Consulate. Only after the Certificate of Inspection has been provided, the vehicle can be shipped for Lobito. As we have prior experience with these aspects, we’ll take care of the requirements. However, the documents are required by the U.S Customs and Border Protection service before the vehicle is shipped. All requisite fees are to be paid before you ship it out from U.S and at the port of Lobito when the car arrives there. To get further information about the shipment and related costs, contact the Angola Consulate.

Vehicles that are older than three years can be imported to Lobito which the vehicles on a temporary permit are allowed to be driven for 2 years with a bond deposit of 45% based on the cost of the vehicle, shipping and freight charges. However, vehicles that are permanently imported have to pay 40% to 45% tax and 10% VAT. It is best to know that the method of shipping that you choose will add to the cost. We offer door to door and port to door services which mean if you cannot be available in Angola, we will complete the customs formalities and drop off your car to the address in Lobito. We offer door to port services as part of our added services and this takes away the stress from you to deliver it to the nearest port. However, the charges are added to the final invoice.

Methods of shipping

Though there are three methods of shipment, air shipping is usually not a preferred choice because of the high price and that is why Roll-on/Roll-Off and enclosed container shipment are usually the norms. The car is driven on and off the ship and during transit, it is harnessed on the deck. This is RORO method while in Container shipment; your vehicle is put inside a large shipping container and sealed. This protects it better. But it is more expensive as your personal items are allowed to be shipped along with the car. It is best to clean the car completely, remove the fire hazards of air conditioning gas and fuel from the vehicle and disable all alarms before the vehicle is shipped from USA.

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!
