Required Documents for Shipping a Vehicle to Togo
Togo has paved roadways that are easy to drive on, but it helps to have a SUV or larger vehicle to navigate through the roads during the rains. It’s important to have a collection of necessary documents needed in order to complete your transport. These documents include:
- A letter of authority from the South African Bureau of Standards
- IE462 Form completed
- Verify your employment within the country of Togo
- Vehicles registration
- Proof of residency documented
- Certificate of non-sale
- Bill of Lading
While it may seem like a lot of paperwork, it is certainly necessary in order to complete your request. Your vehicle will need to get through customs and the fastest way is to abide by the rules and regulations. Thus, it is best to contact the Embassy of Togo before the process of shipping begins.
Prior to Shipping
Before your vehicle can be sent to Togo, you will need to determine what method of shipping will work best for your needs. The most common is Roll On/ Roll Off and the second choice is container. Your shipping agent will be able to discuss the options and help you determine which one works best for your situation.
You will have a few ports in the United States to choose from when it comes to exporting out. Not all ports will travel to Africa. Only one port in Africa will accept imports from the United States.
