If relocating to Zambia, consider having a personal vehicle exported. It will make local travel easier and it can help to avoid language barriers and currency issues. Zambia isn't thriving when it comes to public transportation so getting to places on time or in a quick manner can be difficult without the use of a personal vehicle.

With 5 major roads located in Zambia, there aren't many roadways to cover. There are more roadways, but many of aren't in great condition. However, the roads can lead to nearly every possible destination throughout the country, as well as to all surrounding countries. Since the main form of public transportation in the country is the railway, having a vehicle at your disposal will be beneficial.

Having a vehicle transported to anywhere in South Africa will prove to be a difficult feat. They have strict laws in regards to vehicle importing and a Letter of Authority and an Import Permit will be needed. Contacting SABS will be the way to go about obtaining such documentation and approval.

Methods of Shipping a Vehicle

  • Air shipping is a costly method of shipping a vehicle to the country of Zambia. This is usually too expensive for most people, but it is an option.
  • RO/RO shipping is the roll on, roll off method that requires the vehicle to roll onto the ship, as well as roll off. The vehicle must be empty with the exception of a spare tire, a car jack, and floor mats.
  • Container shipping is slightly more costly than RO/RO shipping. However, it allows for the vehicle to be filled with property allowed in Zambia. The container can also be filled with property or it can be split with another person. This will help reduce the cost.

All of these methods are possible ways to import a vehicle from the U.S. to Zambia. Considering that there are no seaports in the landlocked country, a person will need to prepare a ride to the place of importation when the vehicle is due for arrival.

South Africa is a country that has their own car manufacturers. Seeing as this is the case, they do not allow used vehicles to be shipped unless they are over 25 years old and considered to be a classic vehicle. With this being said, if a personal vehicle needs to be shipped, certain documentation that will be needed.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Zambia

  1. Invoice of Vehicle Purchase
  2. Proof of Ownership
  3. Title and Registration
  4. Proof of Insurance
  5. Import Permit
  6. Letter of Authority
  7. Customs Release Notification form
  8. Bill of lading
  9. Passport

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Zambia

The act of transporting heavy equipment and oversized cargo overseas isn’t a task that can be accomplished by just anyone especially unfamiliar individuals. It takes extensive knowledge of the nation’s foreign import policies, experience, and all of the right equipment to make the delivery happen. So if you’re in need of professional shipping services so that you can ship your cargo from the U.S. to Zambia, A1 Auto Transport has you covered.

The size and weight of your cargo are two of the greatest deciding aspects on the overall cost you’ll pay for shipping heavy equipment to Zambia. Not all cargo deemed as oversized or as heavy equipment fits into specific dimensions and in some cases, you may need to remove parts or disassemble the piece of equipment to ensure it is shipped safely. Nonetheless, there isn’t much we can’t have delivered. Here are some examples of the heavy and oversized equipment we can deliver for you…

  • Farm Equipment including tractors, balers, harvesters, backhoes, etc.
  • Construction Equipment including bulldozers, forklifts, dumpers, etc.
  • Mining Equipment including loaders, excavators, haulers, etc.
  • Paving Equipment including pavers, planers, compactors, graders, reclaimers, etc.
  • Agricultural Equipment including tractors, combine harvesters, plows, spreaders, drills, mowers, planers, etc.

How Should I Have My Heavy Equipment Shipped Overseas?

The options available to you through A1 Auto Transport will heavily rely on the size and weight of your cargo. Some of these options are also more expensive than others due to the added protection and security they provide. However, one of our specialists will be available to help you decide which transport method is best for your circumstances. Here is what we have to offer in heavy equipment shipping options…

  • Lift On/Lift Off is one of the most common forms of transport. This method safely lifts your cargo using a crane to put it on and take it off of the ship. Those with inoperable or crated equipment, as well as anyone with construction materials, may use this method.
  • Roll On/Roll Off is also known as RoRo Shipping. This is the most inexpensive way to transport heavy equipment or oversized cargo overseas. For this shipping method, your equipment or sizeable vehicle must roll onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • Flat Rack shipping is also a common form of international transport that is highly preferred. Your heavy cargo will be secured to a flat rack or metal frame and then placed on the back of the ship. In case of inclement weather, your cargo may be protected with shrink wrap.
  • Container shipping isn’t available for most oversized cargo unless it can fit into a 40ft container. This is the most expensive and secure form of shipping we have available. It will protect your cargo from outdoor elements and any likelihood of criminal activity.

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!
