  1. Hi,

    What if the car is older than 8 years, for example a classic car?

    Can you give me an approximate cost to ship from U.K. to Kenya, including registration in Kenya.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    1. Hello Thomas,

      KEBS only allows maximum 8-year-old cars to be imported into Kenya. We cannot ship
      Older cars as they would fail Pre-shipment inspections.


  2. Hi, what are taxes on 100% electric (0 emissions) vehicles
    What are your fees to handle export from the UK and clearing in Mombasa
    What services do you provide (VATQ etc)

    1. Hello Sean,
      1. Taxes depend on the make and model according to KRA CRSP. Once we determine what car it is we can check that with KRA and advise
      2. ⁠Fees – £4500 + cost of the car all-inclusive to the port of Mombasa only in a shared container.
      3. ⁠VAT Qualifying cars – we can do this but charge 30% of VAT to process the purchase on behalf of the client.
