How to Prepare Your Car for Its Journey to Mali.
The car’s preparation shouldn’t take much time away from your days. The requests are very simple to fulfill. The transport company will hold you responsible for this part of the shipping process.
- Clean the inside and outside of the car and make sure that it is free of all dirt and debris.
- Remove any items that weren’t manufactured with the vehicle. For example, DVD players, GPS systems and other similar items mustn’t be left behind unless you are using container shipping methods.
- Check all of the fluids. The only fluid that shouldn’t be full is the fuel tank. It should read ¼ full or less.
- Check the tire pressure.
- Write down anything about the car that you think the transport company should know. Also, take notes and pictures of any damages and scratches that exist on the vehicle.
As you go through the process of preparing for the transport, use the help of the transporter along the way. It is highly suggested that you contact the Embassy of Mali before preparing for the shipping process. They will give you information in regards to the import policies in place at that time. Import policies change often so it is wise to become informed.
