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.

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.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”

“A1 Auto Transport means stress-free. I shipped my Toyota Prius from Chicago to Mississippi, and they were very flexible in terms of pick-up and delivery time. I'll surely put them on my favourites list. The car arrived safely and in perfect condition. Other than a bit of dust caught on the road, there’s nothing to report. It was the best service and a very pleasant company!”

“Shipping our CRV using A1 Auto Transport went great. They moved it to North Dakota within the promised 5 days despite it being the weekend. We did find a couple companies with slightly cheaper quotes online, but their reviews were really bad and felt pretty fishy. We decided to pay a little more and be safe. Since we had to ship a small SUV, the price was bound to be a bit higher anyway. Joe contacted us many time over text and kept us posted on the progress. We got our car back with no problems. It arrived in North Dakota on an open truck without so much as a scratch. Next time I need to ship something, I’ll definitely call again!”

“I'm glad to have chosen a reputable and well run firm to work with for my needs! Thanks!”

“Dear Cherie, I would like to again thank you and your staff (again) for all of your hard work. This is my fourth shippment with your company and the transaction has again been flawless!!! Generally, in this country, a car is the second largest investment someone will make. It is nice to know that A1 is looking out for our "investments" and ensuring their safe delivery. If anyone ever requests to speak with a past client, for a reference, please feel free to have them call me and I will be glad to speak with them, and assure them that A1 is #1.... Thank you again for all of your help. Warmly, Eric Winokur, CEO Winokur & Gage Inc. Real Estate & Lending”
