Shipping A Car To Madagascar

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Shipping a car to Madagascar from the United States isn’t cheap, with most transport costs falling between $3,000 and $6,100. 
  • There are not a ton of direct shipment routes to the area from the U.S., which is partly why the cost is slightly higher than some more common shipping destinations.

In order to ensure that your vehicle arrives in Madagascar without any complications, it's important to adhere to each of the international shipping requirements at both the port of origin in the United States and the port of destination in Madagascar.

Due to the complexity of the process, it's highly recommended that you choose a company that specializes in international shipping in order to prevent delays, avoid any unforeseen fees, and to make sure that every legal requirements and documentations are fully completed. As a company that has been shipping vehicles through the world for over 20 years, A-1 Auto has the demonstrated expertise and impeccable reputation that will make this process as seamless as possible.

Located in the Western Indian Ocean, Madagascar is an island nation that has a population of approximately 22 million. Though known for its stunning beauty and diverse wildlife, it's a nation in which close to 80 percent of its population is considered to be living in poverty.

Despite receiving generous economic support from such prominent organizations as the IMF and the World Bank in 2006, it soon faced political upheaval in March of 2009, in which a coup that the army helped back lead to a transitional government being established that still is in power today.

Not recognized officially by the international community, this has led to a major decline in both its annual growth rate and economic conditions. In fact, one of the main criticisms of the current de facto regime is that it has not done enough to live up to the eligibility requirements that are listed as part of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) in terms of its ability to maintain order and a sense of law enforcement.

Import Recommendations

Given its tumultuous political, economic, and legal environment, importing to Madagascar requires a distributor that has localized and in-depth experience in dealing with their customs agents. A-1 Auto has local agents in Madagascar that have been able to utilize their relationships with local authorities and agents to help make sure that there aren't any unforeseen circumstances and minimal delays. Furthermore, as a dual-language speaking nation, all locally employed agents are equally fluent in both Malagasy and French.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Madagascar

  1. A Valid Driver's License
  2. International Car Insurance
  3. The Original Purchase or Commercial Invoice
  4. Employment certificate
  5. Title
  6. Bill of lading

You must also prepare your vehicle to be shipped, which means:

  • Emptying the car of all gasoline and other flammable liquids
  • Removing the car battery
  • Taking out all personal items that may be contained in the vehicle, including in the trunk

Furthermore, you should also be aware of certain regulations, as not following them can result in higher than necessary expenses, which are:

  • All automobiles can be taxed and made to pay duties based upon the particular vehicle's make, model, cost, year, and upgrade.
  • The automobile will be charged 118 % of its CIF value (Cost, Insurance, Freight) if it has been registered for less than a year.
  • If registered under the name of the person importing the vehicle for at least one year, then there are no required duties.

Shipping Methods

The two main ways to export your car to Madagascar are:

  • Roll-On and Roll-Off Service: For this method of shipping, the automobile will be placed directly on the freight ship in which it is usually surrounded by other vehicles and protected by barriers around the deck. This is the cheapest method available, though it's also quite effective.
  • Container Service: When choosing this method, the automobile is still placed on a freight ship, with the difference being that it is put inside of a special container. It is a much more secure method, especially for luxury vehicles.

Main Port of Arrivals

The two main ports in Madagascar can be found at Toamasina and Mahajanga. Other ports are located at Antananarivo, Morondava, and Toliaraa.

All have directly linked rail service to various parts of the country, but it's important to understand that many of the roads in Madagascar aren't paved or developed. During the wet season, this can cause great difficulties in transportation. However, there are many paved roads that connect much of the major areas and cities together, which can be accessed from the ports.

Due to the cumbersome process of ground transportation once the vehicle has arrived, researching the location of the final destination of the vehicle within Madagascar is important, as a port that is closest to that destination can be chosen. This will speed up the process and potentially save plenty of expenses along the way.

Contact A-1 Auto today and start the process! You'll be surprised at how we can make the complex seem completely simple.

A1’s Overseas Transport Services

The international transport services offered to you will depend on the type of cargo you’re shipping. However, we have four great shipping solutions in total. Our shipping services include the following…

  • Lift On/Lift Off (LoLo) Shipping- This method of open air transport is recommended to those with inoperable vehicles or crated equipment. A crane is used to lift the cargo onto and off of the ship carefully.
  • Roll On/Roll Off (RoRo) Shipping- This open air service is the least expensive shipping method available through A1 and is only offered to those with operable equipment and vehicles that can use a ramp to drive onto and off of the boat. RoRo transports are not accepted by all seaports so ground transport methods may also be necessary to fulfill the delivery.
  • Container Transport- This more protective form of overseas transport is also the most expensive. Your cargo is protected from poor weather conditions by the walls and ceiling of the container.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- Your cargo is secured to a metal frame or flat rack then placed atop the ship. In case of inclement weather, your cargo my get shrink wrapped for further security.

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!
