Importation of motor vehicles into Zimbabwe is very straight forward. However; information on how to do this is not always easily available. Here at Savannah Freight Services-UK we will provide you with the required information. We are a UK based freight Forwarding company that is dedicated to serving the needs of Zimbabwe. Shipping cars to Zimbabwe is our business. Shipping trucks to Zimbabwe is what we know best.






Documentation required to import a car into Zimbabwe:
The following documents are required to be produced on importation:-
  • Invoice/agreement of sale
  • Police clearance – SARPCO Certificate (when imported from a country in Southern Africa
  • Export bill of entry and supporting documents
  • Registration book (in the case of used motor vehicles)
  • Selling commission
  • Brokerage
  • Storage

  • Documentation
  • Freight (up to the place of importation, only when the vehicle is not driven to such place of importation)
  • Insurance (up to the place of importation)

Valuation of Motor Vehicles

The valuation of motor vehicle as with the other goods is in accordance to Part X of the Customs and Excise Act [Chapter 23.02]. ZIMRA reserves the right to accept declared values or in some cases, reject the declared values when the declared values do not reflect a bona-fide open market value. This is usually the case with used motor vehicles when ZIMRA will assess the values of the imported cars. The assessment of values is in accordance with Section 112 of the Customs and Excise Act.(NB: The valuation of goods including motor vehicles is in accordance with the World Trade Organization (WTO) Valuation Agreement).In valuing used motor vehicles, ZIMRA shall consider, but is not limited to the following;
•  The open market value of similar or identical vehicles sold on the same market at the same commercial level to unrelated parties
•  The values already accepted for similar/identical vehicles
•  The current condition of the vehicle being imported.In determining the value of the imported vehicles, ZIMRA will use any and all information at its disposal.Vehicles that are acquired by other means other than purchase (such as gifts) are also subject to valuation in order to determine their values.The valuation process undertaken by ZIMRA is intended to ensure that there is no under- or over-valuation of goods.  If a client is not satisfied with the value established through this valuation process, he/she may appeal and seek for a value ruling through the office of the Station Manager or the respective Regional Manager.
Value for Duty Purposes

The value to be used as a basis for the calculation of duty and tax shall include all charges and expenses incurred and incidental to the purchase of the vehicle and its transportation up to the place of importation. 

The table below is a guide of the duty generally charged at the  Port of Entry. It is derived from the legislation. Please note that the information provided here is for guidance only and MUST NOT be used as a substitute to the Zimbabwe Government's official publication. You must contact a professional freight forwarder or ZIMRA officials  at any Port of Entry in Zimbabwe for latest and accurate information.

Thanks Plaxedes. Shipping a Toyota Yaris to Zimbabwe will depend on which route you want to use.You can either ship your car via Walvis Bay Namibia. You then use the Plumtree Border post or You can ship via Durban to use the Beitbridge border post.Please contact our dedicated Zimbabwe team on 44207090264 for proper price guide.

Thanks Seth for contacting us. Clearance cost for a tractor unit in Plumtree depends on the model of the unit, e.g. MAN, ERF, Volvo; Age of the unit and condition of the unit.

I am enquiring about costs for sending a 24foot truck (straight body) to harare? and if it is left hand drive trucks; are they still allowed to enter Zimbabwe? Thank you.

Peter M on 20 July 2012 12:42
You are allowed to send your truck but cannot register it in Zimbabwe. The age of the truck or car is not important as the age restriction was suspended. period. Left hand driver vehicles are not allowed.

This blog is meant to be an information forum not a price quotation forum. We have provided a contact form and a price quote request form on our website. We encourage all our valued readers who want latest prices for shipping cars to contact us directly rather than through the forum. I hope this clarifies why some on the quote requests cannot be answered on the blog. Thanks
