Estimate on Auto Shipment

If you want to send your vehicle over to Kenya, you will need to learn the rules and regulations for importing a vehicle. The cost of importing from the United States will start at $4000 and can go as high as $7200. There are many factors that will play a role in the final cost of importing, availability of transport carriers, and current cost of fuel, type of vehicle, shipping method, and more. If you want to stay in Kenya on a permanent basis or if you plan on attending school, this price is going to be worth it in the long run, giving you the freedom to do what you want, when you want. The roads in Kenya are paved as well as unpaved.

Requirements for Importing Your Vehicle

The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) determines the prices to charge for taxes and duties based on the model of the vehicle and when it was registered. No vehicle can be imported to Kenya, if it is more than eight years old.

The larger the engine, the more you will pay in duty. Another tax you will need to pay is the excise duty. If the vehicle is under three years of age, you will be charged approximately Ksh 150,000. If the vehicle is more than three years, it will be charged Ksh 200,000. All imports are charged a Value Added Tax, or VAT at 16%. Licensing your vehicle is also an expense that must be figured in. The average CIF of a vehicle is 25%. This charge has nothing to do with customs duties.

Tax Exemptions for Returning Citizens

If you have been living abroad for more than a year you can bring one vehicle back without being charged duty and taxes when you return, with the exception of mini buses and regular sized buses. There are rules that must be adhered to. These rules are:

  • You must be at least 18 to import a vehicle
  • The vehicle you are importing cannot be more than eight years old
  • You must not have requested an exemption prior to this import request
  • You must have been living outside of Kenya for a minimum of two years
  • You must be requesting import on your own vehicle
  • You must show proof that the vehicle has been yours for a minimum of 12 months

Preparing Your Vehicle for Shipment

Your vehicle will need to be prepared prior to shipping it. Hiring A-1 Auto Transport Service is the best solution to this. Your shipping agent will know what is required, what to expect, and how to prepare your vehicle so there are no delays once the process begins. When shipping a vehicle, it is important that you find and submit a copy of the following documents along with your request:

  • Proof of your residency in Kenya
  • Proof of your auto insurance
  • Any invoice that states you have paid duties
  • License
  • Passport
  • Title to your vehicle
  • Registration of your vehicle

The vehicle owner will need to be present to pick up the vehicle at the port in Kenya. You can choose from any of these three ports: Port of Lamu, Port of Mombasa, and Port of Malindi.

Methods of Vehicle Shipment to Kenya

Roll On/ Roll Off shipping and container are the most efficient way to ship your vehicle across waters. Both have their good points and bad so you must decide which method would work best for you based on your needs.  The Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is accepted at all three ports. It is the most affordable way to ship a vehicle. If you choose this method, your vehicle will need to be completely empty with only the spare tire, the car jack, and the floor mats inside. Your vehicle be driven by its own power onto the deck of a carrier ship and harnessed down in a bay for transport.

Container shipping method is a little more expensive but you can cut your cost by sharing the container with someone else. With this method, you can load your vehicle and all your household goods inside the 20 feet or 40 feet container before it is sealed. The vehicle will be safely protected during shipment. The regulations dealing with vehicle import keeps changing, it is best to contact the Embassy of Kenya to know more about it.

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!
