A1 Auto Transport service will assist you through the complete procedure so that there is no mistake or delay in shipping the vehicle.

Some of the documents that will be required include:

  • Customs bond.
  • Cash deposits/fees.
  • Listed vehicle inventory including details of the vehicle.

Vehicle Regulations in Trinidad.ย 

It is important that you have owned the vehicle for at least six months before you import it. Legal and registration documents to prove that you are the owner will have to be submitted. Additionally, specific regulations that have to be adhered to include:

  • Payment of all duties, taxes and VAT
  • Owners have to be present when the vehicle arrives
  • You are not allowed to sell the vehicle immediately, but have to retain the vehicle for 24 months after importing it
  • Returning citizens have to be show a minimum of 5 years of stay abroad
  • It is mandatory that import of vehicles has to be done within 2 months of your stay in San Fernando
  • Container shipments have to be extensively inspected before cleared

As one of the leading auto shipping services, we would like to give you a word of caution about the procedure that the procedures take a long time and that is why it is why it is essential to start the procedure early. You might need to begin the process and submission of proofs even before you move to Trinidad.

If you need a free quote from A1 Auto Transport service, weโ€™d like you to select the shipment method so that we can calculate the costs accordingly. You have the option of choosing from - Roll on/Roll Off (RORO) and Container shipping. Air shipping is another option but not many people prefer it as it is extremely expensive.

If there are budget considerations, then RORO works best. But you have to remove all personal items, movable accessories from the car, steam clean it and leave only a little fuel for it to be drive onboard/offload the ship. Conversely, container shipping is more expensive yet offers higher protection as the vehicle is sealed within large containers and is only opened at the port in Trinidad. Unlike RORO, in container shipping, you are allowed to ship your personal items and household goods.
