BL and Customs Clearance Questions
Why do you need my complete address for the Bill of Lading?
Please note that US Homeland Security had mandated that any vehicle heading to the Caribbean must have complete street address. A vehicle cannot be delivered to a PO number. South Africa has also imposed the same restriction, other countries are also encouraging this.
I am not living in my country at the moment, which address do I indicate?
Please enter the address where the vehicle will be imported.
For example, if you live in the U.K. but wish to import the vehicle into Zimbabwe, then enter the address in Zimbabwe.
Ensure that your street address is correct when you email it to us since this will be the address used on all shipping documentation.
For Caribbean clients and clients importing vehicles through Durban port:. Please note that your PO Box address alone will not suffice. A street address is required in accordance with U.S. Government's Department of Homeland Security for the Caribbean clients, and the South African Government for vehicles being imported via Durban port.
What other charges I can incur?
Please check with your Customs clearance agent about these charges:
- Cost of Wharfage charges
- Local duty for clearing
- Inland transport fee (if necessary)
- other charges if applicable (e.g. inspection fee etc....)
What documents do I need to clear the vehicle?
Your Customs Clearance company should be able to tell you exaclty what you need. Generally you would need Bill of Lading and Commercial Invoice but it is best to check with the clearing agent
How long does shipment takes?
We give you transit time to your port but the total shipment depends on relative availability of the vehicle, when your payement is received and the frequency with which shipping companies sail to your port and whether the ship sails directly to your port or makes a transit at an interim port. We will inform you when your payement is received and the current availability delay if the vehicle is not in stock. There are plenty of shipment options if you are in Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, Caribbean, Asia and Europe.
Is the final arrival date final?
Please check with your clearance agent a week before vehicle's arrival to get them in action and to make sure that the ship will indeed arrive as promised
