Ship Car To Tarawa
🇰🇮 Kiribati, (KI)

The capital of Kiribati islands, Tarawa is a populated atoll that has a lot in common with other Gilberts’ group islands. Azure blue seas and sunny beaches are a crowd-puller but if you intend going here on an extended stay or have a work permit, it makes a lot of sense to import your car from USA when you move.

When you are covered by the expertise of A1 Auto Transport service, it is easy to import your vehicle to Kiribati. We will work with you through the complete process starting from documentation and preparing the vehicle for shipping to receiving the car at the Port of Tarawa.

To start with, after you decide to expert the vehicle to Tarawa, you need to send a Letter of Intent to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency so that they can process the documents before the vehicle is shipped out from the domestic U.S. port.

When you work with our company, we ensure that we not only help you with the procedures but assist you in picking your vehicle from your doorstep and delivering it at a port in US while one of our local shipping agents will be there to assist you. They will work with you to ensure that the vehicle clears customs with ease and you get the delivery. If you cannot be there, they will represent you and get the necessary things done.

As Kiribati has tropical weather all through the year, it is best to avoid the monsoon season as there is a threat of cyclones and storms which can lead to delays in delivery.

Regulations on vehicle imports.

As Tarawa is the major port, the vehicle will be directly shipped here. However one of the important considerations of having your vehicle shipped is completing the documentation. The Kiribati Customs Service (KCS) requires the following documents:

  • Registration documents and vehicle title deed.
  • S. Insurance proof.
  • Import Entry Form for assessment of taxes.
  • Bill of sales listing VIN, make, model, engine and chassis numbers, year of manufacture.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Emission reports.

It takes about 7 days to receive your vehicle due to the Custom clearance procedures which includes clearing the import taxes and related fees. Only then it is given to the owner. The basis of the duty which is levied includes the length, size and weight of the vehicle, its evaluated value and vehicle insurance. You will need the Import form to be filled by the shipping service and as you are the owner, your signatures are needed. The copies of the permit are required by the warehouse, customs department, shipping service and one copy by the owner.

Opt for the right method.

Before the vehicle is shipped, there are some regulations to adhere to so that there are no delays at the Kiribati port. These include steam cleaning the vehicle from inside, removing the air conditioning gas, emptying out all personal belongings and ensuring that no or little fuel remains in the tank.

You have the option of sending the vehicle by RORO or Container shipping. However, if you have an expensive vehicle like a luxury car, vintage vehicle or additional household goods to Tarawa, then it is best to ship by container shipping. Your vehicle will be put within a large sized container and secured in place to minimize any movement during transit. This is more expensive due to the exclusivity as the protection for the household goods and vehicle is higher.

Roll-on/Roll-Off is good if you just have a vehicle to ship as it is driven on the ship deck, harnessed in place and then driven off at the Port of Tarawa. If you need more information on the shipping process, new laws or need clarifications, connect with the Embassy of Kiribati to get the details.

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!
