Ship Car To Mbeya
🇹🇿 Tanzania, (TZ)

Situated in the south western Tanzania, the Mbeya region is mostly semi-urban while the city of Mbeya is developing at a faster pace. It is well-connected to the major cities in the country and in neighboring countries with the all-weather Great North road which navigates through Alexandria to Cape Town.

When you move here for work or for personal reasons, it helps to have your own car with you. It is expensive to buy a new vehicle here as most of the vehicles are imported from other countries. Thus, the most affordable option is to bring your car here from USA, if you intend staying here for an extended period. It is best to have the freedom to traverse the city on your own than to depend on public transportation.

However, there is a lot to know when you are planning on shipping your vehicle to Mbeya from a city in USA. It begins by working with an experienced international auto shipper such as A1 Auto Transport service. We have been shipping vehicles belonging to our clients to several African countries including Tanzania, for over 20 years and understand the procedures and Custom regulations which can be difficult to fathom on your own.

Cost of shipping.

Thus, it is best to talk with one of our shipping agents about the various tests that have to be completed after the vehicle reaches Mbeya.  One of the tests is the roadworthiness test which is done before you can drive it. If it fails to clear, it will undergo modifications as per the Tanzania’s Ministry of Transport requirements.

It is essential to know that there is about ten to twenty percent VAT and 25% fixed import duty on the imported vehicles especially used vehicles. And we ensure that your vehicle reaches safely. Importing vehicles commercially is one of the most flourishing businesses as there are multiple ports that offer high quality cargo and shipping services.

Verified documents.

It is important for the shipper to complete the submission of documents to the required Tanzania Revenue Authority, when you ship to Mbeya for the purpose of verification. These include:

  • Passport/driving license of shipper.
  • Original and 3 copies of car title deed.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Bill of purchase with details about VIN, make, year and model.

With most of the vehicle in Mbeya and other cities in Tanzania being imported, the rules accommodate imports with ease. However, you have to pay higher taxes and duties when the vehicle is over 10 years old. To get the final quote you will need to contact the shipping agent and select one of the freight cargo methods as cost to ship vehicles varies depending upon your choice.

Freight shipment options.

You have the option of choosing RORO or container shipping when you want to transport your vehicle to Mbeya. If you have a low budget, then Roll-on, Roll-Off works best and using this method, the vehicle is driven on the ship using ramps and harnessed in the bay that is allocated. When it reaches the last port to be offloaded, it is again driven off. Thus, your vehicle has to be in an operable condition and you need to keep the car jack, spare tire and keys in the vehicle.

Whereas when you plan on shipping a luxury vehicle that requires higher level of protection, container shipping works well. Additionally, you are allowed to ship your household goods along with it which makes it convenient when you have to relocate.
