Laws and Regulation.

Cost of transportation.

If you are looking to get estimation on the cost of the vehicle shipping, it is important to ensure that you have proper information on the taxes and duties. You can expect to pay the 5% on older vehicles and up to 110% on newer vehicles. The taxes based on the make, year, and engine size of your vehicle will determine how much you will pay for your vehicle. When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we offer a free quote on the services.

Shipping your vehicle will require that you decide between container shipping and Roll on/ Roll Off shipping. If you choose the container shipping, you will be able to load your vehicle plus clothing and personal items inside the container before it is loaded onto the ship and strapped down for support. Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping is another option. With this method, your vehicle is rolled or driven onto the deck of the ship where it will be strapped down for import. Once it reaches the destination, it will then be driven off. Find out more about shipping to Sierra Leona when you contact A1 Auto Transport Service.
