The scenic town of Teyateyaneng is located in the district of Berea in Lesotho. It is known for carpet manufacture and other craft related industries and businesses. The city is about 40 km. from Maseru and has rapidly urbanized over the last two decades. Being a landlocked country, all freight shipping cargo is delivered at Port of Walvis Bay in Namibia and then land transported to cities in Lesotho, including Teyateyaneng.
For those planning to stay here on a long term basis or are on a work permit, it is important to have your own means of transport as the public transport facilities cannot be depended upon. You will need to discuss your shipping requirements with A1 Auto Transport service as we have a longstanding success in delivering vehicles in Lesotho. Additionally, unless you are conversant with the procedures of importing vehicles, it helps to have an experienced international auto shipping service take care of the import requirements. As we have been successful in importing to South Africa and are understand the nuances of Lesotho regulations.
Not only will we help you get the car shipped to Teyateyaneng, but will assist in getting the documents verified and submitted at the US port and the Namibian port where the delivery of the vehicle will be given. If you intend shipping expensive vehicle additional transit insurance is advised to prevent collateral damage. Before you are allowed to hip the car, you need to be in possession of the Lesotho government’s Import License and Letter of Authority. The authorization is provided if you are employed or studied in USA for a specific amount of years and have owned the vehicle for at least 6 months. There are documents that have to be submitted at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and at the Lesotho Revenue Authority. These include:
- Original Vehicle Registration.
- Passport/ID proof of the owner.
- Proof of Work permit.
- Purchase Invoice of the car.
- Insurance certificates.
- Registration documents.
To avail the benefits of the Import Permit, it is important to fill in the required details about the vehicle and the ownership in the government mandatory application form H462. Only the Directorate for Import and Export Control is allowed to issue the license to import.
We can help you get the required forms filled in, pay the custom dues and get the clearances. Additionally, if you are not available to receive the car at Namibian port, you can give us the Power of Attorney and we will collect it after completing the required procedures. It is essential to check the method of shopping that you will use to transport the vehicle. RORO is the most affordable method as the car is placed and secured on an open deck. While Container shipping offers a higher level of security as your car is secured within a container of 20 feet or 40 feet.
When you follow the rules and submit all the required forms and documents as needed, shipping to Lesotho becomes a breeze. Having an experienced shipping service helping you at every step is an assurance that the process will be smooth.
