Best Car Shipping Company Saudi Arabia

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Saudi Arabia

  1. Importer authorization.
  2. Proof of ownership (verified by the Saudi Embassy or the US Chamber of Commerce)
  3. Export Declaration from United States Customs.
  4. Police clearance.
  5. Conformity Certificate.
  6. Bill of lading.
  7. Passport & entry visa.

How to Calculate Custom Taxes

The value of the vehicle is based on the price list issued by the manufacturer, and taking into account depreciation rates based on the age of the vehicle

  • A vehicle 6 months or newer is considered new and no deduction is taken.
  • A vehicle older than 6 months, but less than a year, is granted a monthly deduction rate of 2%
  • A vehicle 2 years to 5 years old will be granted a monthly deduction rate of 1%
  • The value of the vehicle (as calculated above) plus the cost of the freight and insurance is how the customs tax is calculated.
  • The customs duty rate is a flat rate of 5% for regular cars and 12% for trucks.


It is in your best interest to first contact the Saudi Arabia Embassy in the US to double check and verify that all the rules are still the same before making plans to ship your vehicle.  With a competent auto transport company on your side, the route to Saudi Arabia for your vehicle can be a smooth one. 

Auto Transport Saudi Arabia

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Saudi Arabia

A myriad of factors play into picking a shipping company to get your heavy equipment and oversized cargo overseas from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia.  Distance, tariffs, import export/policies, the type of cargo and its size and weight are all considerations to take into account.  At A-1 Auto Transport, we simplify and streamline the process so you don’t have to.  We are able to transport mostly anything under the sun and are at the ready to discuss your shipping your needs.  It’s good to work with a company who has a lot of experience with a wide assortment of freight and has decades of shipping experience.  With A-1 you have that.  In recent months we have serviced clients who have needed to ship the following items:

  • Excavators
  • Backhoes
  • Boom Lifts
  • Tractors
  • Crawler Loaders
  • Cranes
  • Pontoon Boats
  • Industrial Plant Equipment
  • Concrete Mixers
  • Water Towers
  • Forklifts
  • Trenchers
  • And Many More!

International Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo Shipping Options

  • Lift On/Lift Off - A  vessel that is built with cranes to load heavy and oversized freight. It’s self-sufficient in the sense that it can load and unload cargo without the help of external crane devices.  A bit more expensive than other shipping options due to the deck space taken and the machinery needed used to place the cargo.  Quite ideal for uniquely sized pieces or supplies that won’t fit into a shipping container.
  • Roll On/Roll Off - A cargo vessel designed to carry wheeled, self propelled vehicles, trailers or railroad cars that can roll onto and off of the ship. Usually the least expensive way to transport  due to the minimal resources involved.
  • Flat Rack - Is a shipping type that is recommended for those with freight that won’t fit into a container.  With this method, your cargo is secured to a rack or metal frame and it is then carefully placed on top of the cargo ship. Fits a wide variety of unique equipment
  • Container - This shipping method can be the most expensive yet it isn’t applicable to those looking for overseas heavy equipment shipping services. If your cargo can fit within a 40ft shipping container, then you may be eligible for this service. Container shipping provides the top tier protection from outside sources albeit a confined storage space.

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!
