Procedures for import of vehicles
The fact is that if you want to move there you are going to need your own car with you. In order to do so you will need to contact a shipping agent. It is suggested that you get a 4-wheel drive vehicle because less than 10% of the roads are actually paved. If you decide to do so, you are going to have to gather all the required documentation and to fill out the appropriate forms required by the Customs. A1 Auto Transport service is going to inform you about the nearest export location. They will also provide help you pick up as well as to deliver the car if you aren’t able to pick it up yourself. You can get the information required by talking with us or by getting in touch with the US Customs and Border Protection Agency.

How to ship a car to the country of Burundi.
There are two general ways with which you may ship a car to Burundi from the States. These are the Roll-On/Roll-Off and Container Shipping.
RORO shipping is actually the cheapest and therefore the most preferred way. Ro-Ro is great for different types of cars as well as trucks, SUV’s and other forms of transportation. Your car is going to be rolled on a ramp on the carrier ship and it is going to be fastened with braces or brackets. Once the car reaches the receiving port in Burundi, it is going to be driven off the ship. However, you are going to remove all kinds of personal items and you will have to have it perfectly cleaned up prior to the process.
Container shipping on the other hand is one of the oldest means of shipping overseas. It is generally going to cost more than the Ro-Ro shipping but it gives you more value if you have to ship other belongings besides the car. You can place them inside the container and even inside the car. Nevertheless, the process is generally going to be slower because it would require more inspections by customs and other authorities. However, you are going to be able to rest assured that your car and your belongings are safely stored within a container.
