Car Shipping Port-au-Prince

Port-au-Prince is the largest city in Haiti with a population of nearly 4 million residents. The economy in the city has been steadily rising for the last 20 years and many people from around the world have relocated to Port-au-Prince for employment and business ventures. Traffic can be very congested especially during rush times when business in the lower districts are changing evening and early morning shifts, so when driving you will want to drive cautiously. Port-au-Prince has public transportation but it can be very unreliable and stops can be erratic. Driving your own motor vehicle while living in the city can be a great benefit as public transport is slow and will get expensive quickly. To have your car relocated to Port-au-Prince you will need to follow some specific customs regulations as well as have a reliable international automobile transport company move the car for you.

International Automobile Transport

When you contact the automobile transport company you will need to let them know the make, model and year of your car. They also need to know if you plan to ship the car by sea or by air, and if there have been any modifications to the car that will affect the weight or size of the car. Damage insurance is usually included in a total shipping quote, but if you have a classic or luxury car you may want to add extra coverage during shipment. Most people prefer to ship motor vehicles by sea instead of by air due to the high cost of air freight. Owners of luxury, expensive antique or exotic cars will often use air freight when shipping their car in order to have it delivered very fast. Your agent will discuss the various types of overseas shipping available with you. If you will not be able to deliver the car to shipping port in the United States, the agent will schedule convenient door to door pick-up to have your car transported by land to the port. You will need to give the company certain documents when scheduling transport. Those documents include:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Social Security Number.
  • Vehicle Title.

You will also need to sign a Power of Attorney statement that will give legal permission to the transporter to move your car both on land in the United States and overseas during shipment. When your car arrives at the shipping port in Port-au-Prince, the agent can also schedule delivery from the port to your new location.

How to Ship a Car Overseas

You will be given information from the auto transport agent about the types of international transport available for your car. There are two ways to ship by sea as well as transport by air. The most convenient ways to ship are:

Ship Your Car Port Au Prince
  • RORO- RORO is the easiest as well as the most common way to ship a car overseas. RORO is short for roll/on roll/off and it simply means cars are rolled onto the RORO vessel at the exit port, and then rolled off the vessel when it reaches the destination. RORO is by far the least expensive as well as the fastest way to ship a car internationally. RORO is an excellent way to ship the everyday driving vehicle including cars, trucks, vans, SUV’s and even buses. Cars must be clean and empty during transport with this method of transport.
  • Container- Container shipping, a form of enclosed transport, is usually preferred by those who have highly expensive automobiles. Containers are sealed to protect the contents from exposure to weather, flying debris (including birds) and other elements that could cause potential damage during transport. Many containers even offer padded walls or ceilings and climate controlled space. When shipping with container shipping, you can also load items inside of the car during transport making it convenient if you need to relocate everything at once when you ship the car.
  • Air Freight- Air freight is the fastest way, as well as the most expensive way to ship a car overseas. Shipping by air is convenient when you have a very expensive luxury or exotic car and want to have it in Port-au-Prince as quickly as possible.

Your transport agent will discuss the pros and cons of each type of transport with you and will assist you in deciding which one is best for your personal vehicle.

Customs Regulations

Customs regulations in Port-au-Prince are very strict and must be followed precisely to have your car imported. You must provide customs with specific documents to verify identity and vehicle ownership. Documents include the following:

  • Passport.
  • Driver’s License.
  • Motor Vehicle Title.
  • Commercial Invoice/Bill of Sale.
  • Packing List if you use container shipping.
  • Origin slip and destination slip.

All motor vehicles brought to Port-au-Prince for import are subject to taxation. Import duties and shipping tax must also be paid. If you will be staying temporarily in the city you will be required to pay a tourist tax on the vehicle at a rate of 10% on top of the standard taxes and duties. All people importing personal cars must pay the import duties, but for business owners in the private sector the duty taxes can be waived by contacting the Embassy of Haiti and filling out the exemption paperwork prior to import.

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!
