Import Regulations in South Africa.

Abiding by strict lawful regulations is something that you’d have to consider and therefore hiring a professional agent like the A1 Auto Transport might be a good idea. When you hire the company, they’d ensure a hassle-free and fast shipping process without additional headaches. Some of the documents that you’d have to prepare include:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Title of vehicle.
  • Insurance policy.
  • Power of attorney if not present to pick up the car.
  • Social Security Number.

The company is there for you to make sure that everything goes as it should. The company is going to consult you on filling out the paperwork, choosing a shipping method and basically whatever you need. We could also pick up the vehicle from your home and deliver it to your location at Pietermaritzburg but this is going to cost you an additional fee. In any case, if you want to get any further information, it’s advisable that you contact the U.S. Customs or you can call Embassy of South Africa.

Specific Restrictions.

When it comes to the import, there are some restrictions regarding your vehicle such as:

  • Right-handed vehicles only.
  • One car per family or per individual.
  • Returning citizens are also subjected to taxes.
  • Immigrants can’t sell the car for two years.
  • Temporary residents have to present a temporary import permit and must pay taxes.
  • The diplomats are exempt from taxes but they have to show diplomacy certification.
  • The Import Permit is issues by the Embassy of South Africa so you have to take care of it prior to the process.

Furthermore, you are going to have to present the authorities in South Africa with the following documents when you ship your car:

  • 304A and P1.160 Forms in three separate copies.
  • Original Registration.
  • Title of vehicle.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • Import Permit.
  • Passport.
  • Temporary License.

Shipping Methods.

The main port in South Africa is Port Elizabeth. If you want to transport additional belongings with your car, you’re going to have to go with Container shipping. You have to get an estimate of the total price and a quote as well as other details before the process. In any case, the following are the available shipping methods to Port Elizabeth:

  • Container Shipping would allow you to transport other valuable belongings along with your car. This is why it’s a bit more expensive but you get more value out of it.
  • Roll-on/Roll-off Shipping would require you to drive the car on its wheels onto a shipping deck where it would be secured. It has to be completely empty and this is why it’s the cheapest way to go.

Satisfied Customers

“Awesome! I had just a couple of days to get my car on a truck after the last company I tried left me hanging. Joe didn’t mind the short notice and got it to New Hampshire in 3 days flat. It was in great condition, just like I left it. The price was good and I was glad to have him in charge of the transport. I rarely meet such a trustworthy and professional man, especially in this industry. The driver also proved he knew what he was doing, following standard procedure like he’d done it a million times. He explained all his actions and reassured me nothing will happen to my car. If you want to transport your car anywhere in the US or outside, I highly recommend A1 Auto Transport. They provide a very comfortable experience, I was never pressured into anything, and the transport ran at my pace.”

“I must say after looking at the Better Business Bureau prior to moving my vehicle with you I was aprehensive. I noticed 67 complaints in the last 12 months. When I called John in your office to discuss this he informed me that "Yes, we do have 67 complaints, but we moved over 13,000 vehicles last year and that is less than 1/2% complaint rate" Well John, you managed to exceed my expectations! The A1 team delivered on time and without a scratch. Thank you once again for all your help.”

“Hi A-1, Just a note to let you know how please I have been with your service. The car shipped out of Southern Ca. Tuesday and arrived in perfect condition Saturday in Tallahassee. The driver "Steve" was very nice and knowledgable. He called me on Friday to let me know he planned to be in Tallahassee Saturday afternoon. Then he called again Saturday about 2 hours out and again 20 minutes out. We met and offloaded the car. He went over the paperwork with me and we check out the car. It was in perfect condition. Just a perfect story of how nice it can be to buy a can on eBay and have it shipped by A-1 Auto Transport I recommeded your company highly to the Seller in Ca. Thanks again very much. ”

“After my dad’s passing, I decided to return to Rhode Island to support my mom. The last company I used to move a car was late by 3 days, so I went to the web once more and did my research. I went through several websites and asked for quotes, including A1 Auto Transport. It wasn’t the cheapest nor was it the most expensive company of the bunch, but I knew not to rely on price for these things. I’ve heard of quite a few scams from companies with really low rates. So, I called each one to get a better feel for them. To my questions, some of them got flustered, others didn’t know how to answer and said they’ll get back to me at a later date. One guy whom I pestered a bit too much simply hung up. But with A1 Auto Transport, it was a different story. Joe answered the first time and had no problem answering my questions. It was like he already knew I would ask them. His quote was also reasonable, so I asked him to arrange for a truck to pick up my car. My experience with A1 Auto Transport was a resounding success! Thank you Joe for the stellar service!”

“For one reason or another, shipping a car between states makes me a bit worried. Using another company prior to A1 Auto Transport which left a huge scratch on my car didn’t help ease my trust issues either. The quote Joe gave me wasn’t the lowest on my list (I did a ton of research this time), but I was less interested in getting a deal as I was in getting my car to Illinois safely. I paid a deposit after he picked up my car. By that point, it was in his hands. I was glad he called so much during transport. He must’ve felt I was stressed out by the whole experience. Fortunately, my worries were for nothing. This company pulled through and brought my car as I left it. Thank you Joe!”
