Requirements and Restrictions for Importing.

You can contact the Uganda Revenue Authority to learn more about the rules and regulations that you will need to follow. You will need to fill out and send your application for importing to them. You will then need to clear customs before you can claim it once it reaches Mbala. The rules and regulations are not stringent yet it's important that you follow them just the same. You can only import a vehicle that is new or used, and most vehicles are imported commercially from Japan. One of the important inspections includes the โ€œroadworthiness testโ€ which is conducted by the Japanese Export Vehicle Inspection Center (JEVIC). This validates that the vehicle is in good condition and emissions are within the requirements.ย  When the vehicle is imported from USA, pre-inspections need to be conducted before it is accepted in Uganda.

How to Prepare your Vehicle to Import.

You will need to prepare your vehicle while it is still in the U.S. There are certain rules and regulations that need to be followed to prepare your vehicle for shipping to avoid any delays. You need to fill out all exporting applications and paperwork and submit them to the customs department in both the countries. You will need to have the following documentation available when you submit your application:

  • Permission from the lien holder if there is a lien against your vehicle.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Ownership proofs.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • All information about your vehicle; the make, model, engine number, and chassis.
  • Custom clearance certificate.

All paperwork will need to be turned in as quickly as possible. If you hire A1 Auto Transport Service, you can ensure that all paperwork is filled out and delivered to the customs as required and everything is provided as needed. A1 Auto Transport Service will even come and get your vehicle if you are running low on time. If you need an authorization letter, A1 can obtain that letter for you as well.ย Additionally, there are taxes that need to be paid before the vehicle is delivered to the owners. The taxes include 15% import duty, 17% VAT, 6% withholding taxes and 10% excise duty. This is approved by the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT).

Shipping Options Available.

You will have two different shipping options when you are inquiring about shipping to Uganda. You can choose the Roll On/ Roll Off method or container shipping.

With the Roll On/ Roll Off method, or RORO, your vehicle will be rolled onto the deck of the ship where it is parked in a bay and secured before the ship departs. Your vehicle will only be allowed on the deck of the ship if it is completely cleaned out and only contains the floor mats and the car jack inside. You will be responsible for removing the air conditioning gas before you have it placed on the deck of the ship. If you don't remove the gas before your vehicle departs, it will be quarantined.

Container shipping is another option for shipping your vehicle. This method is the most expensive way to ship your vehicle to Uganda. There are two sizes of containers to choose from; 20 foot or 40 foot. The best part of choosing containers is that you can place all your personal household items inside the container once you place the vehicle inside. Once you have your container loaded up, it will be secured and loaded onto the deck of the ship with a crane.ย If you have any questions regarding importing your vehicle, you can contact the Ugandan Embassy in the United States.

Satisfied Customers

“Mark, I'm gratified when companies take customer service seriously. Please feel free to share the important fact that my experience with A-1 was not particularly extraordinary'and that is the whole point! Things happened the way they were supposed to happen, no muss, no fuss. A friendly driver and courteous pick up folks. Picked up right on schedule. The ability to track my car was great because I could 'guesstimate' when it might arrive and plan accordingly. Now then, you should also know that I chose A-1 because of E-Bay. Never underestimate the power of positive feedback. I did not purchase the service through E-Bay, but I darn sure checked out your feedbacks! And they were very good. In addition, your web site is very user friendly and made my reservations a breeze. Plus, my car arrived in perfect condition. You and your entire staff are to be commended for making my experience routine. That's the goal! Thanks again everybody. Bob C. -ย Greenville, South Carolina”

“Cherie, My wife Jo and I really appreciated the rapid and pick up and delivery of her 430 CLK from San Francisco to Boston. The whole process went much smoother and faster than we anticipated. Your responses to our questions and availability by phone during the process were a significant part of this good experience. Accordingly, we will use A1 to ship her car back to the Bay Area this month. We will call you directly and are looking forward to an equally smooth return journey for the car. Sincerely, Don & Jo Sellers”

“Our car was delivered here in New York just eight days after it was picked up in Palo Alto, California. This is its second transcontinental trip with A-1 and I think you've done a terrific job. Thank you, Howard Epstein, NYC”

“I rarely leave comments whenever I avail services from anyone. This one is an exception. I have been working as a Supervisor in a supermarket here in Hawaii, and Iโ€™ve always reminded my staff to be at their best when they assist our customers. This company provided the quality of service I was expecting and more. The moment I called them, somebody picked up the phone. I must admit I become agitated when I spend too much time on the phone. But, I only spent 5 minutes to book my details. I did not even have to repeat myself. Another experience I will not forget is I did not even have to use a credit card to get reservation for the services since I told them I was having issues with it. Most transport companies would require that as an assurance, but it was an exception in my case. I give them a big 10 out of 10 for delivering a great service, and I would recommend them to my friends and colleagues for all the efforts they did!”

“Not sure what to do? Then, definitely go for A1 Auto Transport. I tried over 15 transportation companies and brokers to get my car going to New Mexico. I wasnโ€™t exactly a pro at this, so yea, I was skeptical. It tempted me to avoid A1 Auto Transport to save some cash, but after I found out what that brought some of my friends, I chose otherwise. I trusted my instinct, and I was right! It should have taken about 3 days for my car to be picked up according to the contract, but they were at my doorstep after just 1. My Honda was also supposed to arrive in New Mexico in about 10 days, and I got it in 8. Kudos to the driver! He updated us all the time and always answered the phone. Great service!”
