Buying a vehicle

Hey guys,


So I have been planning a trip for awhile now to spend my summer (3months) driving from Moz (Nampula) into Tanzania to Uganda. My wish is to buy a vehicle (I have been looking at motorbikes, and 4x4 leaning more towards the bikes after research) is there any advice you could give on the process involved in buying a vehicle in the country as an American? Paperwork required and such and maybe a reliable company or place I could look to try and find a legitimate purchase. I have spent weeks scouring the web but more often than not SA comes up with vehicles for sale and not Moz.

Thanks

Hi

Unless there are compelling reasons that you want to buy the vehicle or bike in Mozambique, I would highly recommend that you source one in South Africa via a reputable motorbike club or overland site such as www.overland.co.za or www.4x4community.co.za/

Bikes and 4x4's are also advertised on www.clubofmozambique.com but you will have a far better selection in South Africa, if you don't find what you need in Moz.

The only reason I want to purchase in Moz not SA is because I am flying into Nampula and will be there for the first three weeks of my trip doing work that has been pre-arranged so it would require me traveling down to SA (over land or by air) in order to purchase a car and then back tracking driving back up. So I thought time wise it would be much better for me to try and find something in Moz

Understood. There is another big complication driving Moz register car and that is a new law whereby you need a Moz license to drive a Moz car unless a rental. foreign vehicle drivers can use any recognised license Mike
