A large mining town in Botswana, Selebi-Phikwe is situated in Central District. Mostly known for mining of nickel and copper, it has an impact on the economy of the country. Whether you are moving here on business or personal reasons, and require your own vehicle, A1 Auto Transport service can be of assistance.
However, it is important to note that the condition of roads in Selebi-Phikwe is bad and the situation is the same in the whole country. With most of the roads unpaved and constantly traversing rugged terrain, it is best to import a four wheel drive with higher ground clearances.

Motor vehicle regulations.
The import laws are flexible, but you have to ensure that documentation is completed before the shipping is possible. Here are the pre-requisites:
- Proof of ownership of minimum 1 year.
- Form IC.2 submission.
- Import permit given by the Committee of Commerce.
- Vehicle purchase invoice.
- Form CE101 copies.
- Valid passport of owner.
- Police issued clearance certificate.
As Botswana is a landlocked country, you are required to ship your vehicle to Durban in South Africa. It is essential to get the vehicle cleaned completely and leave nothing within the car. This is especially important when you are using Roll-on/Roll-Off method as it is a pre-requisite for shipping with this method.
If you are looking for a quote on shipping, there are various considerations that need to be seen including price of vehicles, insurance and the ways to ship. The most common ways to ship include:
Your car is driven on the ship and secured within 20 feet or 40 feet container. You are not allowed to ship any personal belongings within the car but only an empty vehicle so that chances of damage during ship movement are minimized.
In this, the vehicle is put within 20 feet or 40 feet and the rest of the space can be filled with personal goods and items. It is the ideal method for shipping expensive vehicles to Botswana.
A1 Auto Transport service will ensure that the vehicle is collected from the port after the customs is cleared and delivered at your doorstep. However, it is important to have all documents and paperwork completed so there are no delays at the customs. You can contact the Botswana Customs Department to get more information.
