When you relocate to Maldives and need to import your personal vehicle in the country with you, you will need to hire an auto transporter who handles international shipping. You will most likely need to have the company transport your vehicle from your location in the U.S to the major shipping port nearest you that ships out to Maldives. Your agent will go over details with you on documents you will need to provide as well as the cost of transporting the vehicle to the port and overseas shipping costs.

The primary documents that you will have to supply to the shipper are your driver’s license, social security number, vehicle title and registration and a signed Power of Attorney form that will allow them to legally transport the car to the port for you. You’ll also want to check with your insurance company to make sure that overseas travel is covered on your car, and if it is not you will need to obtain shipping insurance as well as insurance that will cover your car once it reaches Maldives. You will also want to check with Customs to find out international laws and regulations on exporting to another country and the types of paperwork and documentation that you will be required to have prior to shipping.

You will need to provide detailed information about your vehicle to Customs in Maldives when your car arrives in the country. You’ll need documents that show the make, model engine and chassis numbers and year of the vehicle as well as the weight, color and seating capacity. You will have to register your vehicle with the Minister of Transport upon entering the country. Your vehicle will be held at the port until it has been registered. You’ll also need to complete and L10 Application form and make sure you have the original title and registration as well as proof of insurance. You will also want to make sure that the vehicle is thoroughly cleaned and that all fluids such as oil, steering and brake fluids are filled, the battery is fully charged and the vehicle is full driving capacity so it will be ready to drive as soon as it reaches Maldives.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To The Maldives

  1. Passport
  2. Bill of lading
  3. Import license
  4. Certificate of valuation
  5. Packing list or cargo manifest

Prior to Shipping

Prior to having your car exported internationally, you will need to go over in detail with the agent all expenses that will be required for international shipping. They will give you a full quote so you’ll know what you have to pay upfront and what you will need to pay when the vehicle reaches the entry port in Maldives. You may need to steam clean the vehicle and remove any paperwork or personal items from inside of the vehicle, as well as anything that could be damaged or fall off during shipping from the exterior of the car. You will also want to know the weather conditions of Maldives so you are prepared for driving during drought as well as rainy seasons when the roads could become impassable. Knowing about the country will assist you when making plans to drive for extended time periods.

Shipping Options

There are three main ways to have your car shipped internationally to any country, including Maldives. The three ways are:

  • Ro-Ro Shipping - Ro-Ro Shipping is also known as Roll-On Roll-Off Shipping and it translates to exactly what it is. The vehicle is driven (rolled) onto the carrier ship and then driven (rolled off) when it reaches the port internationally. This is the easiest and quickest way to ship a vehicle overseas by water as well as the least expensive. The only drawback to Ro-Ro is that you cannot ship any personal items inside of the vehicle during transport.
  • Container Shipping - Shipping by container is still shipping on the water, but with this type of shipping you will be able to pack personal items inside of the vehicle as well as in the cargo container when transporting to Maldives. This type of shipping can take a little longer than Ro-Ro due to clearance checks when going through Customs, but it is great to utilize when you need to ship more than just your vehicle.
  • International Air Shipping - Shipping by air is the fastest way to have your vehicle shipped internationally. You can get the car in far less time than if you ship by sea, and will be able to ship along with other items if you need them to be sent with the vehicle.

Your auto transport agent will help you determine which type of shipping will suit your purposes the best and which will be most affordable with your shipping budget as well.

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!
