Somalia Customs Authority has rules and regulations that must be followed in order to successfully transport your vehicle from the United States to Mogadishu without any problems. South Africa may be strict with their importation rules and regulations, East Africa is not. You will need to provide the most common documentations such as

  • Vehicle registration.
  • Proof of insurance.
  • Proof of ownership.
  • Your license.
  • Your passport.
  • Title to your vehicle. 

There are also standard custom duties that will need to be paid for in advance of importing. You will have four different ports that you can choose from when you need your vehicle in Mogadishu.

Documentation and Import Costs

In addition to the documents needed above, you will need to pay your taxes due as well. You will be expected to pay between 3% and 70% Valorem duty too. The duty will run about 30%. If you have something non-essential or luxurious coming to port, you will be charged a higher rate. The government also will charge $1,300.00 when a luxury car is imported to Mogadishu. You will need to provide proof of residence, or a residence permit for Mogadishu when you fill out your paperwork for importing your vehicle.

Rules to Follow

You will need to remove any external parts before the vehicle can be shipped so there are no delays in shipping. You will need to clean out your vehicle inside and out before you can bring your car onto the ship with the Roll On/ Roll Off method. You will be required to steam clean your vehicle before it can leave the dock otherwise it will be quarantined. If you don't do this, your vehicle will be moved to a quarantined area, then a cleaning facility, and finally back to shipping. You will be charged for the labor to steam clean your vehicle.

Shipping Methods to Choose From

When you are shipping your vehicle to Somalia, you have two choices of transport: Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. The container shipping option is great for someone who may be shipping more than one vehicle or have household items to ship as well. Everything can fit into one container and then the container is closed up and moved to the deck of the ship by way of the crane.

The RORO method requires the vehicle to be rolled onto the deck of the ship and then strapped down for transport. The vehicle will need to be completely cleaned out and nothing left in it except for a spare tire, floor mats, extra keys and a car jack.

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!
