Whether you are coming here for an extended visit or have become a citizen, importing your vehicle from USA is a desirable endeavor. Local transportation does not meet all needs as it is quite scarce so having a personal vehicle is extremely useful. There are roads but due to the rugged terrain, roads are rough and steep, so regular vehicle maintenance becomes crucial.

So before you decide to import your car to Thimphu do not forget to consider the unfavorable terrains for car journeys. The roads are not suitable for light, small vehicles, but only heavy duty cars will be able to withstand the wear and tear that it will invariably undergo. Now once you have decided to ship your vehicle to this Himalayan country, take your time to learn the associated rules and regulations.

Regulations for shipping your vehicle to Thimphu.

During shipment, it is important to provide relevant documents to the Bhutan Road Safety and Transport Authority for verification. You will need to meet the required restrictions for the process. These include:

  • Presence of import license for vehicle issued by Bhutanese Royal government.
  • Used or old vehicles are allowed, only if they are owned by UN or authoritative of diplomatic and international missions.
  • Do not forget to produce the vehicle registration and the title.
  • You will also need to present a current and validated license, passport, and picture ID car.
  • Proof of vehicle insurance and ownership of the vehicle are important as well.

Necessary documentations and restrictions related to import a vehicle to Bhutan may change. So remain abreast with the situation when importing your car from the US. For the current information, you can contact the Bhutanese embassy.

The different methods for shipping the car.

Two main methods are prevalent and you can make your choice based upon the available budget and the feasibility in your case. Bhutan is a landlocked region, thus shipment will be delivered at Kolkata, India and then the vehicle will need to be driven to Thimphu. As the owner, you will have to be there to receive your vehicle besides arranging its pickup. If you use the services of international shipping agents such as A1 Auto Transport service, we can help you through all documentation processes, can help you clear customs and deliver your vehicle to the city of your choice. However, we can assist you through the different procedures and can help with the delivery in Thimphu.

The most common procedures for shipping the vehicle are container shipping and RORO. In the container shipping method your vehicle is secured within 20 feet or 40 feet container that you can share with others or choose one of your own. You can also ship various car accessories and other household goods along with the car in the container. While when you use the Roll-on/Roll-Off method, the car is driven via ramp on the ship and comes down the same way. However, you need to remove air conditioning gas, clean the car and only keep a spare tire, jack and floor mats.

If you need more information about shipping the car to Thimphu, you can contact A1-Auto Transport Company or call in the Embassy of Bhutan.

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!
