Buying a foreign used Honda Accord from a Ugandan car bond

Buying a Honda Accord from the car bond in and around Kampala makes things bit simpler for you because you will not have to face all the lengthy processes and journeys to the port to own the car. You will find that most of the work has already been done. Most taxes have been cleared.

All you have to do is simply pay for the Honda Accord car from the car bond dealer and the car is transferred to you.

However, you can also find that some Honda Accord cars have only cleared the CIF fees only. So it would mean that if you want to buy a Honda Accord in that state then you will have to clear the rest of the taxes.

You can find the Cost, Insurance and Freight of a Honda Accord (that is from Japan to Kampala) to be around $ 3,000 or even above as stated by the car bond dealers. However, the total sum of the Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) can change due to year of manufacture, condition of the car, mileage and the dealer you choose to buy the car from.
