Procedure for submission of paperwork.

Oftentimes, returning citizens bring over cars to Kotte for their own use and that is why they need our assistance. You need to be aware of the specific laws governing the import of vehicles in Sri Lanka. These include:

  • You need to have at least a visa for a six months stay in Sri Lanka.
  • Only vehicles that are 3.5 years old or less can be imported.
  • Personally imported vehicles can only be used by the shipper and family.
  • Only right hand drive cars are allowed.
  • one car in 5 years is allowed to be imported.

The import duty varies from 5% to 35% with 12% VAT which are based on the CIF. Additionally, the Ad Valorem tax is 2% to 45%, so you will need to add this to the total cost and budget accordingly.

Additionally, there are plenty of documents to submit, fees to pay and complete the procedures and legal formalities before the Sri Lankan Customs will clear your vehicle and deliver it to you. These are:

  • Bill of Lading.
  • Permit for import.
  • Approvals from Transport ministry.
  • Title deed and registration certificate.
  • Bill of purchase of vehicle.
  • Insurance Certificate.

It is important that the roadworthiness tests are done in advance and the certificates submitted in advance so that there is no delay. Most of the ocean bound cargo reaches the Port of Colombo and Roll-on/Roll-Off is the most common method of shipment. However, before the vehicle is shipped it has to be steam cleaned, air conditioning gas removed and only a quarter tank of fuel can be present in the tank. If you are shipping the car by container measuring 20 or 40 feet, it is important to know that you are allowed to put in your personal items within it while RORO does not permit it.

Guidelines for vehicle import.

It is essential to follow all requirements as per the rules. You are not allowed to take the vehicle outside the country when you are traveling, unless you are re-exporting the vehicle to the country of origin. You are only allowed to drive if the registration documents are in order and the license plates have been bought.

It is essential to read up on the driving rules and regulations in Sri Lanka so that you are always on the right side of the traffic laws. To know more about it, consult the Embassy of Sri Lanka.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport sure knows how to give a red carpet experience. Joe was proactive and always available. The company I used before couldn’t get me scheduled even after a week. Joe did it in a few minutes. Ordering was a breeze, and the driver was good. He was on time for the pickup, but the delivery was a day late. The weather slowed him down a lot, but I’m just glad it arrived in Rhode Island intact. Overall, the experience was worth recommending to others. The car was as I sent it, and I’m a very happy customer.”

“Since it was my first move, I fell straight into a transportation scam on my first try. I paid a deposit to a supposed company, but nobody ever came to pick up the car. I learned my lesson, and searched the internet for every company I could find. I looked through reviews, read their sites, eliminated the ones who seemed suspicious, and finally settled on A1 Auto Transport. Joe understood my position and skepticism immediately and spared no effort to reassure me. I don’t know about the rest, but this company is legit. They picked up my car on Friday, November 7th at 1 pm and delivered it to New Mexico on November 10 in the morning. The entire team was very friendly and professional. Thank you for all your help!”

“Mark, Thanks for your prompt reply and for the opportunity to present feedback. Lessons learned can be a powerfull tool when used correctly and judiciously. After purchasing my vehicle on Ebay, I Googled "auto transport" and began to look at several different choices. This is where my comments on A-1 begin: Webpage - 5 Star Rating - Your page was straight forward and simple to use. I was able to read customer comments (which is important to most consumers) and I was able to request an online quote. (not a feature offered by everyone) Quote - 5 Star Rating - Kudos to whoever is involved in developing your pricing structure. Very competitive. With three children in university at the same time, and an exwife with a good attorney, I have to be financially prudent. This was the largest single factor for my decision, followed closely by your customer feedback. Customer Service / Contracting & Payment - 5 Star Rating - Once I had determined to accept your offer, I decided to do it by phone. The process was quick, courteous, and professional. This was done on 03/04. Tracking # and GPS - 5 Star rating - Shortly after contracting and paying I received my tracking #. What a great use of leading edge technology. Very powerfull tool. (I am sure that this has helped cut down on the number of "nuisance" calls that you receive) Customer Service / Questions & Updates - 1 Star Rating - I am by nature a patient person, and am more than cognizant of outside influences on "schedule slip", so when it was determined that it would take longer than the original estimate of 10 - 14 days, I was not worried or upset. I had done my homework, had contracted a reputable company, and simply accepted the fact that it would take longer, no big deal. The ETD listed on the tracking page was 03/28. Early ( I am usually in the office by 05:30) that morning I could see that my vehicle was in Baytown, Tx., which is a suburb of Houston, Southeast of my home by approximately 20 miles. I knew that the tracking page noted that I would be notified 12 - 24 hours in advance of delivery. My problem was that I had scheduled meetings for most of the day and simply wanted to find out if I could get a bit more precise estimate of delivery time. I phoned that morning and the operator was quite courteous, but informed me "due to the high volume of calls, all customer service reps were busy", could I please call back. I called back a couple of hours later and was informed that "due to the high volume of calls, all customer service reps are busy", could I please call back in the afternoon. That afternoon, I called on two different occasions, with the same response (very polite), and on the last call was asked if I could call back in the morning. A little frustrating, but not the end of the world. We are now past the extended ETD. The next morning (03/29 - my vehicle had moved to the very edge of the city and very close to my office) I called and was informed that "due to the high volume''''''...). I told the operator that I would really prefer to just be put on hold and I would wait my turn, and she politely agreed to do so. During the next 30 minutes, she came back twice to politely check on me, which I found reassuring. I was feeling good about getting through right up to the point of being cut off. After being on hold for that length of time, no one wants to be cut off. Now I am a little frustrated. At this point I went online and sent a polite email to customer service, explaining my situation and frustration. The page noted that my mail would be answered within four hours, and by then it was lunch time, so I really thought I would not see my car on 03/29 either, if the 12-24 rule really applied. Customer Service / E-mail - 5 Star Rating - In less than an hour I had an e-mail back from Mark apoligizing for the confusion and promising find out what was happening. Before I could respond to the e-mail, Kevin called and asked if it would be possible to deliver my vehicle that afternoon. Customer Service / Delivery - 5 Star Rating - Within 5 hours of being contacted by phone my vehicle was dropped in front of my house. I was notified not only that the delivery would be made, but also when the driver got close to the house. Very courteous and professional. Customer Service / Post Delivery - 5 Star Rating - Mark has followed up with e-mails and a phone call to make sure that the matter had been resolved and even asked for feedback. (This last item is something that all good companies want, regardless if it is good, bad, or ugly) In summary, I am quite pleased with my overall experience with A-1 and will use you again. I would like to note that if the customer service agents are truly that busy, it is not the operators fault. I know very little about your industry, and don't know if this is a seasonal thing or what. I can only think of two ways to mitigate this problem. 1) Advise all clients that all communication post-contract will be through e-mail (less than an attractive option) or, 2) hire more customer service reps. (this is also a signal that business is good'''''smile). Thanks for your time and attention.”

“We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from Washington 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!”
