Payment of Import Duties and Taxes

It is required that all customs duties are paid prior to you receiving your motorcycle after you have arrived at Bahrain. The duty rate charged to you is based on the evaluated value as determined by Bahrain Customs Authority. You can obtain exemption from customs duty if it is a genuine reconciliation otherwise; the duty is determined by the equal estimation of the value of your bike. You will also need an authorized certificate issued by the General Directorate of Traffic in Bahrain when importing motorcycles.

Additional Documentation Requirements

There is additional documentation that is needed and we’ll assist you in compiling and submission of these documents to the relevant authorities. Some of these include:

  • A delivery order that was issued by the shipper you chose to import your motorcycle from the United States
  • A commercial invoice from a supplier in duplicate form in either English or Arabic
  • A packing list - duplicate will suffice.
  • A bank payment receipt
  • Authorized Certificate from the General Directorate of Traffic
  • A Certificate of Origin in English or Arabic that was issued to you by a Chamber of Commerce and endorsed by the Embassy
  • Four copies of the Bill of Lading that lists the motorcycles gross weight as well as all dimensions.

Custom Laws and Procedures

It is important to be aware of the other regulations before you import your vehicle. Customs duty is to be paid based on the value listed on the invoice by Bahrain Customs Authority. There are demurrage charges that will be accounted for once the motorcycle is left on the premises of Customs. Motorcycles can only be collected at customs by the owner or an authorized agent or party so if you cannot be there, we’ll need the Power of Attorney. Additionally, it is important to know that all U.S manufactured vehicles that are imported direction from the United States will be considered exempt from Customs duty.

For an additional fee, you can have your motorcycle picked up at your home and packed inside of a wooden shipping case where your helmet and all leathers can be shipped alongside your bike. Your shipping options include Ro/Ro or container shipping. If you want to save money and don't mind your bike being exposed to the elements of the sea, then the Ro/Ro shipping method will be good enough. You won't be allowed to leave anything on your motorcycle during shipping and your bike will need to be completely cleaned. If you want an extra layer of protection, you may want to pay a little more and choose container shipping. This method will put your motorcycle inside of a crate and ship it for you enclosed from the port in the United States to the port in Bahrain.

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!
