Car Shipping Obock

A port city in Djibouti, Obock is situated on the shores of the Gulf of Tadjoura and has a flourishing trade. It is one of the important cities in the country.

There are plenty of reasons for moving to the city and to ensure that you have the ease of mobility, consider importing your vehicle from USA. The poor connectivity of public transportation can render you stuck within the city if you don’t have access to a personal car.  That is why it is important to plan on importing your vehicle soon after you come to stay on a temporary or permanent basis.

Nuances of vehicle import to Djibouti.

As laws keep changing, it is imperative to contact the Djibouti Customs Authority and know about the current requirements. If you do not adhere to the regulations there may be a delay in shipment. Before you start the process of shipment, it is important to get the documents in order. You are required to submit all of these documents with the U.S Customs and at the port in Djibouti, including:

  • Ownership proof - passport.
  • Insurance.
  • Work permit/Residence visa.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • Lien-free title deed.
  • EIN letter.
  • Car shipping form (international).
  • Import permit.

You need to be aware that Djibouti only imports left hand drive vehicles but most of the regulations are not strict so A1 Auto Transport service can assist you through it. As per the tax policies, the engine capacity is the main criteria for fixing up the import duty.

Vehicles with engine capacity of less than 1300cc have to pay 30% tax while those vehicles with engines of 1300cc to 1800 cc are charged 60%. Vehicles with high engine capacity have to pay 100% duty on the vehicles. Thus, additional taxes depend upon the evaluated value of the vehicle, insurance and shipping charges. If you are looking for a quote on the cost of the shipping, A1 Auto Transport can only provide it when you select the mode of shipping for your vehicle.

Although air shipping is the fastest way to import your car to Obock in Djibouti, it would be too expensive to do that. That is one of the reasons that people prefer Roll-on/Roll-Off and Container shipping method. RORO is extremely affordable and is perfect when you are looking to ship only the vehicle as it has to be shipped empty. Other limitations associated with this method include shipping only after getting the car interiors steam cleaned, disabling all alarms, and removing the air conditioning gas completely. These are done to ensure that there is no fire hazard during transit. The Container shipping method is good if you have to ship an expensive vehicle that needs extra protection or have to move your personal belongings to Obock.

It is best to discuss the whole vehicle shipping with A1 Auto Transport service and get the free quote on it. To get the latest facts on the regulations, contact the Embassy of Djibouti.

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!
