Importing a vehicle into a foreign nation is much too hard for anyone unfamiliar with the country’s import laws. It takes ships, trained professionals and durable transport equipment to deliver a car overseas.
Don’t ever be in haste to hire a transporter or even to choose shipping services. A transport company should have certain characteristics that stand out, proving their authenticity as a business and their ability to safely ship a car to Zambia.
Even with cheaper options, a lot of people decide to use container shipping services to have vehicles imported into another country from the U.S. Container shipping lets the customer choose the appropriate container size for their vehicle and belongings. The car and the shipping container can hold your stuff as long as everything is permitted into Zambia legally. Call the Embassy of Zambia to see what items are NOT allowed to enter the nation.
More Protection for Your Vehicle.
Delivering your car through the container shipping method is the safest possible way to have it imported. Even with the slim risk of an accident happening, insurance coverage is a necessity. Most trustworthy and flourishing transporters protect their customers’ vehicles under their insurance policy for free. This is their way of guaranteeing their services.
In case there’s the need to file an insurance claim, it is wise to have proof of what the car looked like right before it was shipped. Have pictures and documentation of any damages. Use your notes to inspect the vehicle after it has been delivered in Zambia. If you notice new damages, inform the transport company and they will walk you through the process of filing a claim with their insurance agent.
