As far as price goes, RORO is the cheapest one and it’s also the fastest ocean freight transportation method. However, there are quite a few limitations. For instance, you have to completely empty out your vehicle and leave nothing but the spare tire, car jack, floor mats and an extra set of keys. You should also leave the ¼ gas tank and empty out all refrigerating gasses. The vehicle is driven on the deck and safely secured to it in order to eliminate damage potential.
Container shipping, on the other hand, will require you to choose between an enclosed 20ft or 40ft container in which your car will be placed. When you decide to ship to Mongolia, it’s highly recommended that you use the services of a reliable shipping company such as the A1 Auto Transport. With over two decades of experience and comprehensive and versatile shipping services, the company is here to ensure that the entire process goes without any hassle and issues.
Requirements for Shipping.
There is quite a lot of paperwork to be handled by the US Customs, prior to the shipping. While you will need to submit a similar set of documents to the Mongolia Customs Authority to ensure that the process is deemed legal and ownership is validated. Some of the documents which are necessary include:
- Bill of sale.
- List of the inventory of the car.
- Ownership proof for at least 6 months.
- Driver’s license and passport of the owner.
- Bill of Lading.
There is a 10% VAT of the tax base amount of the vehicle. The majority of cars are subjected to about 50% customs duty while some others are required to pay seasonal taxes. There are some limitations for the vehicles which are eligible for transportation such as:
- Only left-hand driven vehicles are allowed.
- Vehicles older 20 years are forbidden.
- Used vehicles are allowed only for personal use.
It is also important that you provide proof of the value of your vehicle in order to determine the exact amount of taxes and duties you must pay. The documents help to provide proof that everything you say is legal and the vehicle is legal as well. In addition, you would also have to prove the value of the vehicle in order to determine the amount of taxes and insurance. This is why there are documents which are required to determine the legality of the import after you’ve paid the necessary taxes. In order to ensure that your car reaches Mongolia from China you have to submit the necessary documents and get the permit. For any further details, you might want to contact the Mongolian Consulate in Washington, DC.
