Requirements for Importing your Vehicle

KRA, or Kenya Revenue Authority uses retail/selling prices and clearing and forwarding agents to assist in determine the duties charges. The vehicle's model is not always the same year the car was registered. The duty will be calculated using the time the vehicle was registered. According to Kenya Bureau of Standards, you cannot import a vehicle that is eight years old and older.

Engine capacity will help to determine customs. The larger the engine is, the more duty you will pay. Excise duty is also determined. If the vehicle is less than three years, you are charged nearly Ksh 150,000. If a car is more than three years old, it is charged Ksh 200,000. The Value Added Tax or VAT is also added to duty. This tax is at 16%. You will be responsible for getting your vehicle licensed before you can import it to Kenya. The Import Declaration fee is normally charged at a rate of 25% of the CIF value. This charge is not associated with customs duties.

Tax exemptions for returning citizens

If you are coming back to Kenya after being abroad for a while, you will be able to bring back one vehicle duty free. This does not include a bus or a mini bus. The following rules will apply:

  • vehicle must not be more than eight years old.
  • must be at least eighteen years old.
  • must be not have obtained permission from exemption before.
  • must have been living outside of Kenya for at least two years .
  • must be returning with their own vehicle that they have owned for at least twelve months.

When preparing for shipment, you will need to have the following documents with you:

  • Proof of residency in the country.
  • Proof of auto insurance.
  • Invoice for duties that have been paid.
  • License.
  • Passport.
  • Title of the vehicle.
  • Registration of the vehicle.

Shipping Methods to Nairobi

There are two different shipping methods to choose from when coming to Kenya. You can choose either the roll on roll off method or the container shipping. The most cost effective way to import a vehicle is through the Roll on/Roll Off method. You will only be allowed to have floor mats, car jack, and a spare tire in your vehicle at the time of transport.

The container shipping is more expensive but you can also share the container with another person who may be importing items as well. You will have a choice between two sizes of the container; 20 and 40 foot. You will need to make a list of items that are in your container to give to Kenya customs upon arrival.

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!
