If you plan to visit Tabuk at some point in the future, you may want to bring your own vehicle with you so you can get around when you want/need to and not have to depend on public transportation. Shipping a vehicle to Tabuk can be done as long as you are working with an experienced car transport service like A1 Auto Transport Service. Before you get started, you will want to make sure that you are familiar with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as well as the customs regulations in Saudi Arabia.
In addition to the U.S. Customs and borders and the Saudi Arabia customs, you can also contact the U.S. Department of State for a more detailed listing of contacts which can help you in every aspect of your transport including how to drive in the country of Saudi Arabia once you are there.
It is important that you work with A1 Auto Transport service to make sure that all the paperwork is submitted and you have a copy of everything that is needed for transport. If you are unable to pick up your vehicle from the port once it is cleared in customs, you will have the opportunity elect your shipping agent to pick up your vehicle for you and deliver it to your new location. Some paperwork that you will be responsible for includes:
- A copy of your driver's license
- A copy of your social security card
- The title to your vehicle that you want to ship to Tabuk.
You may also be asked to provide other documentation but your shipping agent will be able to prepare a list for you. If you pay any customs fees or taxes, be sure to keep up with your receipts to provide proof of this payment when necessary. Again, your shipping agent will be your main contact person throughout this process.
How Should You Ship Your Car?
Once you go over all the details with your shipping agent, you will need to finalize your plans which will include determining which shipping option would work best for your needs. You have two main ways to choose from to get your vehicle from the port in the United States to the port of entry in Saudi Arabia. The first way is the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method of the second one is the container shipping method. Most people will choose the Roll On/Roll Off shipping method due to the fact that it is less expensive and it is very simple to do. With this method of shipping, your vehicle is driven directly onto the deck of the ship and then harnessed down for the trip over. Once it reaches the port, it is then driven off and turned over to customs in order to be cleared and released to you. With this method of shipping, your vehicle will have to be prepared beforehand so please check with your shipping agent to see what all you have to do. The second method of shipping is container shipping. While this method of shipping is more expensive, it will protect your vehicle from the harmful elements of the sea during the travel. If you have a luxury vehicle or if you have a classic vehicle, you will most likely want to provide as much protection as possible. Containers come in two different sizes; 20 foot or 40 foot container. You will be able to pack all household items inside to ship everything at one time.
Checking in with Customs in Saudi Arabia
Once the vehicle has been shipped to the port in Saudi Arabia, you will need to be available or have a representative available to pick it up. Once the vehicle has been released, you will then be able to drive it around. Familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations of driving in Tabuk. Your vehicle will need to pass the emissions test along with other tests before it is released. Before you ship your vehicle, check to see what the test are and make modifications to your vehicle before you ship it. If you don’t, it could be delayed.
