Import Regulations in South Africa.

You would have to abide by strict legal regulations of the customs and as well of the auto transport company when shipping by A1 Auto Transport service, as they understand the requirements of South Africa. When you hire us to take care of the process, you would have to provide certain documentation prior to the shipping. These include:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Social Security Number.
  • Vehicle’s Title.
  • Certificate of Insurance.
  • Power of attorney if you won’t be present to pick your car up.

We are going to make sure that everything with the process goes as intended. Our experienced international shipping company is going to inform you about the different methods, paperwork which you would need to fill as well as the preparation process. Depending on the type of shipping, we would also tell you whether or not you can send other items with the car. If you want us to pick up your car from your home and deliver it to your location at Pretoria, there are going to be extra charges. However, the whole process of shipping becomes hassle-free. If you need any further information, you can contact the U.S. Customs.

Vehicle Provisions.

Pretoria is a city which has implemented strict regulations on the import of vehicles and some of the specifications on it include:

  • Only right-handed driving cars are permitted.
  • One car per family or individual is allowed.
  • Returning citizens have to pay the full taxes to the customs.
  • Immigrants are not allowed to sell the vehicle in the next 2 years.
  • Temporary residents are also required to pay full taxes and they must present a temporary import permit.
  • The diplomats of foreign countries are exempt from taxes but they have to provide the certificate of diplomacy.
  • An Import Permit is provided by the Embassy of South Africa, so you have to take care of this prior to the process.

On top of that, you are also required to provide the officials with the following documentation once the car reaches the clearance checkpoint in South africa:

  • Temporary License.
  • Passport.
  • Permit for import.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • Title of the car.
  • Original Registration.
  • A 304A as well as P1.160 forms in three copies.

You can contact the South African Embassy in the Washington, DC if you have any further questions.

Shipment Methods.

You are going to have several ways to get your car shipped to Port Elizabeth, the main port of South Africa. If you want to transport other household items with your car you will need to choose Container shipping. Make sure to get the price quote as well as other details such as the pick-up and delivery dates as well as any other fees, prior to the shipping. However, these are the methods that you can go for when shipping a car to Port Elizabeth:

  • Roll-on/Roll-Off Shipping requires your car to be driven onto the deck of the carrier ship where it’s going to be securely harnessed in the parking bay. Once it arrives at the Port Elizabeth, it’s going to be driven off. You are not allowed to ship any personal items with the vehicles. This is the most preferred and cheapest way to get your car shipped overseas.
  • Container Shipping on the other hand is the best method if you have any other household goods or personal belongings that you want shipped. It is going to cost a bit more but it would allow you to easily transfer all of your household goods conveniently.

Satisfied Customers

“How to start? A1 Auto Transport is a blessing! Joe is a gentleman! A couple days ago, I was getting ready to move to Wyoming. I looked everywhere for a good auto transport company, but their reviews were just terrible. It felt like I was going nowhere and would be stuck driving the car myself or having to sell it. Finally and thankfully, I came across A1 Auto Transport. Most reviews were very positive, so I took a chance on them. Joe spent half an hour explaining the whole shipping process, to the point where I truly understood what to expect and what I needed to do. He covered the legal aspects and the quotes, and whenever I didn’t understand something, he took the time to explain and clarify it. On a Wednesday, the truck arrived at a location nearby (where it would fit), and I sent my car on its way. The driver inspected it and took several photographs. He made it feel like standard procedure, so I simply observed. He took note of the eventual dents and scratches, in case I’d try to sue the company for damages he didn’t cause (not that I planned to). The time estimate for my vehicle’s arrival was 7 to 10 days. It arrived on the 8th in the exact same condition it left. Thank you A1 Auto Transport for a job well done! You’ve kept your promise, and I couldn’t be happier. If anybody I know ever needs to ship a car, I’ll refer you immediately, and I hope this review helps you get many more clients.”

“I had to be in Alabama to help my father through some tough times, so I could only give A1 Auto Transport a 2-day notice. To my amazement, a truck arrived the same day I made the call. I wanted my car in 5 days max, and they got it there in 3. Honestly, I was skeptical about using a transport service, with so many negative reviews online. A1 Auto Transport had a surprising lack of bad publicity, and I can now see why. The car got to Alabama in perfect condition. It’s a great company for beginners who don’t much about the industry and need to be guided through everything. Everyone was also super kind which is something I rarely see these days.”

“I called A1 Auto Transport to bring home an Austin Healey I bought recently. They wanted to come on Tuesday, but the seller was out of town, so we postponed it for one day later. On Wednesday we completed the paperwork, and it was on its way to Tennessee. The estimated time of arrival was Saturday, and it arrived on Friday. Really fast this company! The car didn’t get damaged during transport, and there weren’t any unexpected events or problems to speak of. Also, I received 1 update via text or phone call from the driver each day, letting me know of his progress. Very professional.”

“Finding a good company to transport my Prius seemed a bit difficult, but I wanted to call a few of them anyway before going for a broker. I read a few reviews on A1 Auto Transport and decided on them. The experience was very satisfactory. A1 is awesome! Joe answered the phone the first time I called and was professional and very friendly. Communication was really easy throughout the move. Even my emails got answered within minutes, which really goes to show how on top of things he is. There was no damage to my car during transport, and it arrived in Hawaii on time. Great service!”

“We had to move a car from Austin to Ohio, so we picked A1 Auto Transport to do it. Joe was fast to take our order and we were scheduled for transport immediately. I first talked to him on Monday, and the truck arrived on Thursday morning. I was also kept in the know throughout the move. I called several times, perhaps too many times, but they always answered promptly. The arrival was a bit troublesome. The car was supposed to arrive in Ohio between 10am and 3pm. Later, he called saying he’ll arrive an hour or 2 later due to traffic, so we had to spend some time waiting. But considering everything that can happen on the road these days, we’re glad it wasn’t delayed more. The car arrived as we sent it, clean and without a scratch. We double checked just in case.”
