Thailand's top car exporter and top 4x4 exporter to Africa including Burundi, Central Africa and Eastern Africa
Jim Autos Thailand is Thailand's and Dubai's top car exporter, Thailand's top auto exporter and Thailand's top 4x4 exporter of Right Hand Drive and Left Hand Drive 4x4 pickups and SUV vehicles to Africa. We established our dominance in export of Right Hand Drive vehicles and have been Asia's top auto exporter to Right Hand Drive Southern African countries including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique and Zambia and to Eastern African RHD countries as Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Malawi. While we maintained our lead in Southern African region, our influence in Eastern Africa waned when stolen 4x4s began arriving in large numbers. With stricter enforcement of law, Jim Autos has returned to Eastern Africa and is now Thailand's top car exporter to Kenya, Thailand's top car exporter to Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and other Eastern and Southern African countries. We are also Thailand's top LHD exporter to countries like Angola, West Africa, North Africa and Northeast Africa.
Burundi is a landlocked country in east-central Africa with an area of 27,830 sq km (10,745 sq mi), of which about 7% consists of lakes. Comparatively, the area occupied by Burundi is slightly smaller than the state of Maryland. It extends 263 km (163 mi) NNE–SSW and 194 km (121 mi) ESE–WNW. Burundi is bounded on the N by Rwanda, on the E and S by Tanzania, and on the W by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DROC), with a total boundary length of 974 km (605 mi).
Burundi Vehicle Information
Burundi’s rudimentary public transportation system makes a dependable personally owned vehicle a necessity. Burundi, Rwanda, and Zaire use left-hand drive vehicles, but right-hand drive vehicles are permitted. A valid driver license is the only requirement of obtaining a license to drive in Burundi. Post personnel may import one duty-free vehicle per family. Predominant types of vehicles include Toyota, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Mercedes, Volkswagon, Land or Range Rovers, and Hyundai. Regular gasoline costs about $2.75 a gallon, and there is no unleaded diesel readily available.
Purchasing a vehicle locally is much more expensive than in the U.S. The primary factor in choosing a vehicle is availability of service and spare parts. Peugeot and Toyota probably offer the best prospects for spare parts availability. Secondary factors include durability, high ground clearance for rough roads, and resale value. Manual transmission is highly recommended, as parts and trained service personnel are virtually nonexistent for automatic transmissions.
Cars should be equipped with heavy-duty suspension, cooling systems, and batteries, and tube-type tires. Air-conditioning is a welcome feature, but not essential. Ship an adequate supply of oil, gas, and air filters; oil, brake and transmission fluids; fan belts, windshield wipers, spark plugs and bulbs and fuses. This will simplify maintenance and reduce costs.
Local resale value is higher than in the U.S., except for vehicles with automatic transmission. Resale premiums are higher for makes listed above and for four-door versus two-door models.
Aside from the usual documents (registration, serial number, etc.) owner’s original purchase price documentation is especially important both for initial entry through customs and for local resale requirements. Customs clearance requires a horsepower rating. Do not include CB radio or any other transmitter in the car. Burundi customs procedures may take longer than many other posts, so send ahead documents and one set of keys as early as possible.
Some employees bring used American makes with extra spare parts and have no serious problems. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are popular in Burundi, as they provide off-road capability and high-ground clearance for rough roads.
Roads within Bujumbura range from bad to worse. However good, paved roads extend to Bukavu (Zaire) and Kigali (Rwanda). Within the country, good, paved roads extend to Gitega, Source du Nil, Nyanza Lac, Muramvya, Kayanza, and Ngozi. Other roads are unpaved, but passable.
