If you are planning to import vehicles into Africa, you have come to the right place.

The Africa Used Vehicle Adviser blog is designed to give practical information to people like you.  Whether you are still planning to import a used vehicle for private or commercial purposes, whether you have already tried importing before but are looking for more information or possible alternatives, whether you are just looking for vehicle accessories or replacement parts, this blog can help.

The articles, announcements, opinions and tips posted on this blog are intended for first timers as well as seasoned importers of new and used vehicles.  If you are an expert in the used car import/export industry, especially in the African region, and you feel that you have a lot to contribute to our discussions, we would appreciate any insight you can offer and would gladly entertain your comments and suggestions.

Since this blog is a collaboration of industry insiders from AutoTerminal.com Africa, IBC Japan and other global vehicle exporting experts, most of the discussions will be limited to the author’s field of specialization.  Thus, for most discussions, Durban and Dar es Salaam (DES) shall be the main points of entry of the vehicles – as these ports are the major gateways to southern, eastern and central Africa.

Although discussions on shipping and transporting vehicles will encompass most African territories, the majority of the discussions will focus around the following priority countries:  Angola, Botswana, DR of Congo, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Here you will know the reasons why it is very advantageous to use Durban and DES when importing vehicles into the rest of the African continent.  You will learn and get updates on new laws, regulations and issues on transporting vehicles between borders and territories.

And not only that, this blog will also regularly post tips, advice and information resources about purchasing, transporting, maintaining and even reselling pre-owned vehicles and replacement parts.  Welcome and let’s get started!
