Import a personal vehicle internationally when relocating to Tanzania from the United States. Having the freedom to travel Tanzania's mountainous regions, wildlife and forests will be beneficial for anyone there that is trying to see the country at its fullest or that may be there for study.

Vehicle exporting methods to Tanzania include container shipping and RO/RO shipping. Both are applicable ways of shipping automobiles to the country. RO/RO is the cheaper of the two methods and the vehicle will need to be empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire. Container shipping will allow other belongings to be sent along with the vehicle. It is all up to a person's preference.

Tanzania and Its Road Network

Tanzania has a large network of roads. It is easy to travel the country and its surrounding regions. With international highways and many paved roads, travel to anywhere within the beautiful country is possible. There are methods of public transportation but to avoid currency differences and language barriers, traveling alone might be best.

Transportation in Tanzania should be possible for anyone with employment in the country or there for study. With how simple it is to transport a vehicle to Tanzania, one should really consider vehicle shipping from the U.S.

Tanzania Ports

Tanzania ports are bountiful. There are many ports that accept vehicle export/import and the vehicle owner will need to be certain of which port their vehicle will be shipped to. It is crucial that the owner is present on the day of the vehicle's due arrival. Here are list of Tanzania's ports:

  • Port of Bukoba
  • Port of Mwanza
  • Port of Tanga
  • Port of Pangani
  • Port of Wete
  • Port of Mkoani
  • Port of Chake Chake
  • Port of Zanzibar
  • Port of Dar es Salaam
  • Port of Kilwa Kivinje
  • Port of Kilwa Masoko
  • Port of Lindi
  • Port of Mtwara

These ports range in size and not all of them might except RO/RO shipping or vehicle shipping at all. By contacting Tanzania Customs, one can find out the correct ports for vehicle shipment as well as the documentation needed.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Tanzania

Shipping oversized cargo and heavy equipment from the United States to Tanzania isn’t simple to do without all the right components accessible. For instance, it takes durable haulers, the greatest shipping materials and equipment, an understanding of foreign import policies and much more to safely carry out an overseas transport. Luckily, A1 Auto Transport can help any individual looking to ship their heavy equipment or oversized cargo to another country.

Hypothetically, any cargo that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container is considered as over-sized. However, there are a wide variety of equipment and oversized cargo we can ship using our open air services. Some examples of the heavy and oversized equipment we’re able to have shipped overseas include but are not limited to...

  • Tractors, combines & other farm equipment
  • Backhoes and excavators
  • RVs and motorhomes
  • Industrial equipment
  • Bulldozers, dump trucks and forklifts
  • Hydraulic equipment
  • Oversized engines
  • Pile drivers
  • Cranes
  • Large trucks & heavy vehicles
  • Engineering equipment
  • Agricultural equipment
  • Mining equipment

The Shipping Options We Have Available at A1 Auto Transport

Reliant on the type of oversized or heavy cargo you are shipping and the directions that must be taken to carry out the delivery to Tanzania, there are several shipping methods available through A1. Some of these options offer more security than others which raises the their cost slightly more. Our specialists can help you decide what method to use but before they do, here’s a little more information regarding our transport method options first…

  • LoLo Shipping or Lift On/Lift Off- With a crane, we will safely lift your cargo onto the ship. Once it reaches Tanzania, it will be lifted off the ship with the crane once again. This shipping service applies primarily to construction materials, non-op vehicles and crated heavy equipment.
  • RoRo Shipping or Roll On/Roll Off- This is the least expensive ship shipping option available since it is an open air service that requires your vehicle or equipment drive on and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • Container Shipping- This enclosed shipping service isn’t available to all those shipping heavy equipment overseas. If your heavy cargo fits into the container than you’re likely able to purchase this method of transport.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- This open air shipping method uses a large metal frame to assure your cargo’s support and security during its transport. Contingent on the weather conditions, your cargo may be wrapped and protected by shrink wrap.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

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