Move Car Rwanda

*Prices are for 1 car in a dedicated 20ft container. This is the safest and most reliable way to transport a vehicle internationally. Other items may be included in the container to help save you money when moving.

*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

Since 2010 Rwanda has been operating under a harmonized vehicle registration process with other EAC (East African Community) countries. The agreement creates a uniform set of rules that apply even across the region, making it easier to understand the process of relocating a vehicle to Rwanda.

For residents returning to Rwanda, there is a duty reduction that is available as long as the vehicle being imported is not a commercial vehicle.  Others who may qualify for a reduction are those who work with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government aid workers and foreign diplomats.

Contact us today if you need help exporting a car to Rwanda! All requests qualify for a FREE cost estimate and we’re happy to answer your questions. Get started by filling out the form to the right or calling us at the number at the top of the page!

There is no age limit on cars that are brought into Rwanda, though it should be noted that they only accept imports of left-hand driving vehicles. As with many countries, Toyotas are a good option if you’re concerned about finding replacement parts of getting your vehicle serviced while you’re in Rwanda. Parts for other types of vehicles can be found, but they may have to be ordered from elsewhere.

The roads in Rwanda can be rough, especially by U.S. standards. There are paved roads, but most are made of dirt and the level of smoothness varies widely, making it preferable to have a vehicle that has four-wheel drive. In between the main towns in the country, most of the roads are paved but do have occasional potholes.

How Will My Cargo Get To Rwanda?

There are a few methods of getting your oversized and/or heavy cargo to Rwanda and it depends mostly on the size and weight of your freight.  If your cargo is small enough then the use of a shipping container might be a solution for you.  Sized in 20 and 40 foot dimensions, containers aren’t usually ideal for oversized cargo except in the cases that they are collapsable.  Containers do provide the most security and protection from the elements and can fit many vehicles and supplies.

If you’re transporting cargo that can be self operated and on wheels, then shipping with a RoRo Vessel would be an excellent solution.  Designed specifically for self propelled operables, freight (as the name implies) rolls into the hull of the ship and then back out once in Rwanda.  Often times the least expensive form of shipping, RoRo is a safe and effective way to transport.

If your cargo is crated or non operable then using the LoLo shipping method would be right up your alley.  Standing for Lift On/Lift Off, LoLo vessels specialize in lifting and placing cargo onto a ship with the help of a crane operator

Lastly, your cargo can be shipped via a flat rack.  Either a flat slab with elevated corners or a framed shipping container sans walls, a flat rack is a very versatile shipping option.  Able to handle a wide variety of heavy and oversized freight due to the lack of wall constraints, flat racks are ideal for the most uniquely sized items.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
