Ship Car To Mombasa
🇰🇪 Kenya, (KE)

Being a coastal city in Kenya, Mombasa is the second largest city. It’s also a cultural as well as economic center and it has an extra-large port and an international airport. Mombasa has a tactical situation on the coast of the Indian Ocean which has made the city a trading center of Kenya. Throughout history, the city has been controlled by an abundance of countries because of that strategic location.

For most people moving here, having your own vehicle is incredibly convenient as you can enjoy the freedom of moment. You can move without worrying about public transportation and you’d also bypass the need for understanding the language. Understanding this, the A1 Auto Transport service is going to make all the necessary arrangements in order to help you with the shipping process and ensure a hassle-free transportation. We have over two decades worth of professional shipping experience of exporting vehicles from USA.

Specific Requirements for Importing your Vehicle

Now, your shipping agent is going to determine the quote based on information published by the Kenya Revenue Authority. You have to understand that the manufacturing year is not necessarily the same as the date of registration. The import duty, however, is using that second date as a stand point. You also have to know that it is currently illegal to import vehicles which are older than 8 years as per the regulations set forth by the Bureau of Standards of Kenya.

  • Capacity of the engine: the larger your capacity of the engine is, the higher the duty of import will be.
  • Excise Duty: Pursuant to the Excise Duty Act of 2015 it is currently KSh150,000 for vehicles less than 3 years old and for those which are over that mark = KSh200,000.
  • VAT: The VAT is amounted to 16% of the value of the car and it’s collected by the Kenya Revenue Authority. The importer is also obligated to get a license before he imports the good in the country. There is an import fee of about 25% of the CIF value of all the goods. This is basically separate from any other taxes and you have to pay it additionally.

If you are a returning citizen you are allowed to bring in one motor vehicle for free in the country amongst other valuable goods. However, you have to meet the following conditions:

  • The returning citizen is obligated to have resided in the country for at least 2 years and he mustn’t have visited Kenya for more than 90 days during that time.
  • The citizen must have owned the vehicle for at least 12 months prior to the shipment.
  • The car must not be more than 8 years of age.
  • The citizen has to be at least 18 years old.
  • The citizen must not have obtained a similar exemption before.

There are also quite a lot of documents to be prepared when importing the vehicle.

  • Registration and Title.
  • Purchase proof.
  • Passport and license ID.
  • Invoice for the paid duties.
  • Insurance proof.
  • Proof of Kenyan residency.

You have to make sure that you are present when the vehicle arrives. There are three ports to which you can ship – Mombasa, Lamu and Malindi. We’ll work with you to ensure that the vehicle reaches safely.

Shipping Methods

Ro/Ro shipping is the most inexpensive way to ship to Kenya and it’s also the most convenient if you have no personal belongings to transport. That’s because the car has to be completely emptied out and you should leave nothing but the car jack, spare tire and the floor mats.

The container shipping is your next option.  This would allow you to ship other personal belongings alongside your car. It’s a bit more expensive but you can share it with another person to split the costs in two. Your car is much more protected which is the greatest asset of this method.

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!
