South Africa’s Import Regulations.

Be informed that you will have to adhere to strict import regulations imposed by the customs of the country. This is why it’s advisable to hire a shipping agency such as the A1 Auto Transport which is experienced enough to know the details of the task. You will have to prepare a wide range of documents which includes:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Title deed of the vehicle.
  • Insurance Certificate.
  • Power of Attorney, if you aren’t there to pick your vehicle up.
  • Social Security Number.

The A1 Auto is going to ensure a hassle-free transportation process. We are going to consult you on the different shipping methods, on the paperwork that you will need to prepare and the entire process as a whole. We will also inform you if you would be able to ship other items with you, based on your selection of shipping method. We could also pick your car up and deliver it to your location in Soweto, but this would be of an additional cost. In any case, if you want to acquire any further information, you should consider contacting the U.S. Customs.

Regulations Related to Your Vehicle.

Your car has to adhere to specific legal regulation, if it is to be transported to Soweto. They include:

  • It has to be right-handed.
  • Only one car is allowed per individual or a family.
  • Returning citizens are also subjected to taxes.
  • Immigrants can’t sell their cars for at least 2 years.
  • Temporary residents are also subjected to full taxes.
  • Diplomats are exempt from taxation but they have to present a diplomacy certification.
  • You’d have to obtain an Import Permit from the Embassy of South Africa prior to the entire process.

On top of all that you would also have to prepare the following documents which are required by the South African authorities upon arrival:

  • Passport.
  • Import permit.
  • Bill of sale.
  • Title.
  • Temporary License.
  • Original Registration.
  • 160 and 304A forms in three separate copies.

For further information contact the South African Embassy in Washington, DC.

Shipping Methods.

Port Elizabeth is the main port of the country and you’d have several options when it comes to shipping methods. If you wish to transport other personal belongings, you have to go for container shipping. In any case, it would be wise to get an estimate quote so that you are prepared upon arrival. The following methods are available if you want to ship your car to Port Elizabeth:

  • Ro/Ro (Roll on/Roll off) – it would require you to drive your vehicle on a shipping deck on its own wheels. The car is going to be secured on it and transported as it is. Once it arrives, it’s going to be driven off the deck. You won’t be allowed to ship anything else but your car. This is the cheapest way to ship your vehicle.
  • Container Shipping – this method would allow you to transport other personal belongings and this is why it’s more expensive. However, you get more value off of it if you have more stuff to ship.

★★★★★

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.
