Vehicle importation news:
There has been an imminent rise in the number of imports on second-hand cars in November. This pertains to people trying to beat the 8-year age limit rule.
December 31st being the last day for 2012 manufactured cars to be cleared into the country, many importers and dealers are rushing to clear their imports and update their databases to the 2013 vehicles.
According to the Star Kenya(https://www.the-star.co.ke/business/2019-11-27-used-car-importers-rush-to-beat-eight-year-age-rule/), at least 4 ships ferrying motor vehicles are expected to dock at the MSA port around Dec 10th.
According to the CIAK (Courier Industry Association of Kenya) chairman, imports at the end of the year usually shoot up to about 15,000 units as opposed to the low-import rate in the beginning months of the year.
With this drastic increase in vehicle imports at the end of the year, it is evident that people rush to clear their vehicle’s that are within the age-limit rule.
According to the Kenya Auto Bazaar Association, the selling of used imported cars in 2019 has not been good due to the tough economic environment.
The Chairman of the association iterated that there is a liquidity problem, and what the association witnessed is low sales for the 2019 year.
