Ship Car To Mecca

Ship Car To Mecca
🇸🇦 Saudi Arabia, (SA)

Car Shipping Mecca

Importing a motor vehicle to Mecca is a little different than importing to other cities in Saudi Arabia. While Mecca is one of the largest cities not only by population and land area, it is also a very commercially productive city. One very important thing you need to know about Mecca prior to having a motor vehicle imported is that you are only allowed in the city if you are Muslim. Non-Muslim people may not enter this holy city at all. If you will be staying in Mecca you will find that having your own personal motor vehicle will be very necessary as there is no public transit at all in Mecca except for taxi cabs. Taxis in Mecca can be expensive if you will need to use them daily. You will only be able to import your car if it is within five years of the manufacture date, has never been wrecked or used in a crime, and you will need a Certificate of Conformity issued by the Ministry of External Affairs to Saudi Arabia before the motor vehicle is even shipped from the United States. You will have to have all of the overseas shipping handled by a professional auto transport company.

You’ll have a lot of paperwork to get together not only for the transport company, but for customs in Saudi Arabia as well. For the transport company in the United States you will need basic documents like your license, social security card, motor vehicle title and a signed Power of Attorney statement. The statement will give the company access to transport your motor vehicle. They will also need you to fill out quite a bit of other mandatory shipping paperwork before the motor vehicle can be shipped. You will want to contact the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington, DC for complete information on what you will need for customs when the motor vehicle reaches Mecca. You will need to get a residence permit prior to shipping the motor vehicle as well. Customs will require you to have some of the following paperwork as well:

  • Sponsor Letter of Employment for your Work Visa.
  • Motor Vehicle Title.
  • Original Bill of Sale.
  • Passport .
  • Motor Vehicle Insurance valid in Mecca.
  • Saudi Driver’s License.

You need to make sure you have all necessary paperwork when you are with customs for clearance. If you do not have the correct documents customs can export your motor vehicle immediately back to the United States.

Shipping to Mecca.

In the United States it’s easy to ship a motor vehicle from one state to another by simply driving it or loading it onto a transport truck. Shipping overseas is far more complex than that but will be taken care of just as easily when you have the services of the international auto transport company. First you will need to get your motor vehicle to major U.S. shipping port that it will be exported out of. If you can’t deliver it to the port on your own you’ll need to have the transport company pick it up and deliver it for you on the shipping date. Once it arrives at the port, it will need to be loaded onto the cargo ship for transport internationally. During the time that you work with the international shipping company to prepare for shipping your vehicle, they will go into detail about the types of shipping you can choose from to transport your car. If you will need transport solely for your motor vehicle and nothing else, then the best route of transport will be Ro-Ro Shipping. This type of shipping is the most convenient way to ship a motor vehicle overseas and is used widely throughout the world for international shipping. Motor vehicles are driven onto a Ro-Ro ship, secured in place and then transported overseas. You can also use Container Shipping to transport your motor vehicle overseas. Containers are more secure when shipping by sea and protective from the salt water and wind on the ocean.

Your transport agent will work the details of how to transport your motor vehicle as you are making plans for shipping. You can contact U.S. Customs for information on export laws for the United States and to check on laws that may have been recently changed concerning shipping your motor vehicle to Mecca.

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!
