Car Shipping Salima 

Ship Your Car To Or From Salima, Malawi

Located in the central region of Malawi, Salima is a beautiful place to visit. When you are moving to Salima to visit or to work, you will want to consider bringing your own vehicle from the USA, so you can get around when you want to. The freedom you have to go wherever you want to go whenever you want to is worth the transport fees. Additionally, as Malawi does not have indigenous auto industry, if you don’t have your own vehicle, buying an imported car might be exorbitantly expensive.

There are paved roads to drive around in Malawi so getting around means that you can go anywhere you want to go without the added stress of road conditions in unfamiliar territory however until you get used to driving here, it may be a good idea to take added precaution while traveling. The government is working constantly to make Malawi a better place to live, work, and visit.

Types of Shipping Options

Those shipping to Malawi will have two different shipping options to choose from:

Ship Your Car Salima
  • Container shipping is a good option when you have a vehicle that is more expensive or you want to protect from the weather on the sea. It is also a good option if you are interested in shipping over your personal items as well. You can choose from a 20 or 40-foot container so you can adjust your size according to your budget and your needs. As the container is sealed after everything is packed inside, it will only be opened at the port in Malawi within the presence of Customs officials.
  • Roll On/ Roll Off - RORO shipping is a more affordable option. Your car will need to be completely cleaned out, non-permanent accessories removed, while fuel and air conditioning gas need to be removed to minimize fire hazards. This is the cheapest option as you only pay for the parking bay.  Your vehicle will be placed in a bay on a deck of a cargo ship where it will ride until it reaches the port in Malawi.

You can learn more about importing your vehicle by visiting the Embassy of Malawi for further rules and regulations.

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!
