Two Weeks Left To Order Your 2012-2014 Car Import

Shipping Deadlines, MHH International
The window to import a car older than 5 years is closing very fast. The deadline for 2012 – 2014 cars to be imported has been set as 1st July 2019. After then car imports must be 5 years or younger. So, if you have been planning on importing a 6 / 7 year old car, you have two weeks to buy it from the UK or Japan to be sure the boat will reach Mombasa ahead of the deadline.

We have seen an increase in orders as our Kenyan clients take advantage of the final days to import a 2012-14 car. This risks congestion at the ports as people rush to import their cars to Kenya. If you are able to pay with cash, then the process for selecting and paying for your car usually take 5-10 days. If you are hoping to buy your car import with asset finance, be aware that applications can take one to two weeks. We estimate that all cars must depart on a boat by w/c 13th May.
