Ship Car To Lubumbashi
🇨🇩 Democratic Republic of the Congo, (CD)

The second-largest city of Congo, Lubumbashi is a hub of mining industry and some of the biggest mining companies have a headquarters here. If you are coming to stay on a long term basis, or are a returning citizen or plan on staying for a couple of years, importing your vehicle from USA makes sense.

With poor public transportation and communication issues that you might face, having your own vehicle will give you the freedom of movement.

Hiring the services of international shipping services such as A1 Auto Transport service can be beneficial as we understand all aspects of working with the Democratic Republic of Congo Customs and will ensure that your vehicle clears the procedures quickly.

Specific import requirements in Congo

The regulations of Congo don’t allow any vehicle over the age of 10 years to be imported into the country. It is essential that all vehicles and cars being imported are left hand driven and those that have 10 or more seats need to be less than 7 years old.

If you need more information on the taxes as applicable on imported vehicles, you need to know that there is standard tax of 22.5% under the Import Declaration Fee, which is applicable on all new and used vehicles. The total amount varies as per the evaluated value of the vehicle. Additionally, there are custom and excise taxes based on the cost of freight charges, value of the vehicle and insurance on it. These are usually 8% - 46% while additional VAT is 8% - 13% is charged on all imported vehicles. One of our shipping agents will be happy to assist you through the custom calculation for your shipping requirements.


As with any vehicle import internationally, there are many procedures and documentation that has to be completed. Although A1 Auto Transport service is with you at every step, it is essential that you submit all of the documents so that we can submit it at least 72 hours before to the U.S Customs and Border Protection and at the Congolese Customs Department. These include:

  • Inspection and emission certificate.
  • Vehicle title and registration documents.
  • Ownership proof.
  • Receipts of taxes.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Vehicle insurance.

Ways of transporting the vehicle

Though freight shipping is the only option, apart from air transportation, you have a choice of opting for Container shipping or RORO. If you need to ship an empty car at the cheapest possible prices, opt for RORO but if you have an expensive car and other personal belongings that need to be transported to Congo, it is best to pay for container shipping.

The Port of Matadi accepts both RORO and Container shipping but you will need to be present when the shipment arrives. If you cannot be there, give a signed Power of Attorney to A1 Auto Transport service and we will complete the legal formalities.

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!
