Car Shipping Porto-Novo

Porto-Novo is the capital of Benin and is a large port at the start of the Gulf of Guinea. It is the second largest city and one of the populated regions of the country.

A1 Autotransport you best choice

Though the infrastructure and roads are not the best, as you might be used to in USA, they are drivable and that is why it helps to have your vehicle with you when you move here. It is essential to drive carefully as the traffic rules are lax and many roads are unpaved.

However moving your vehicle here requires following rules and staying within the limitations. You are required to file the requisite documents so that there is no delay in shipping and clearances by the Benin Customs Department. To ensure that your vehicle meets the required eligibility criteria, it is best to hire the services of A1 Auto Transport service as we have shipped vehicles here in the past and understand the regulations apart from being with you at every step.

Motor vehicle regulations.

There are some specific requirements in Benin that have to be adhered to. Make sure that you discuss the details with the shipping service, including:

  • All imported vehicles are taxed including new and old cars and other vehicles. The applicable tax is calculated on the basis of the car’s value. 
  • Purchase invoice of the car with all details mentioned – weight, length, engine and chassis number, VIN, make and model.
  • Only one car can be imported per individual.

Paperwork to be consider

As per motor vehicle regulations in Benin, submission of the right documents is pre-requisite for quick clearances and legality of importing the vehicle.  These include:

  • Owner Signed Non-Sale Certificate.
  • Title deed.
  • Registration documents.
  • S vehicle insurance proof.
  • Bill of purchase of vehicle.
  • Ocean Bill of Lading.
  • Freight invoice for shipping.

It is best to contact the Embassy of Benin in USA to know more about the documents and details needed for a faster access and clearances in Porto-Novo. It is essential that you select the method of shipment before the final quote can be provided. Both U.S Customs and Border Protection and Benin Customs require submission of the documents pertaining to the import at least 72 hours before the vehicle ships out/arrives at the port.

Methods to ship.

Additionally, it is best that you get the vehicle cleaned, empty out the air conditioning gas and leave only a little fuel in the tank. If you intend shipping by Roll-On/Roll-Off method then, you will need to leave the floor mats, spare tire and an extra set of keys within the vehicle. You are not allowed to keep anything inside the vehicle.

And if you are going to opt for Container shipping, you need to know that the cost will be more than RORO. It is good if you have an expensive vehicle to ship or other household goods that have to be moved to Benin. Everything is packed within the container and then shipped. It offers higher safety.

It is best to discuss the details of your shipping requirements with A1 Auto Transport service or contact the Embassy of Benin to be updated on the latest clauses for vehicle imports.

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!
