2012 TOYOTA VANGUARD

The Toyota RAV4 is a compact crossover SUV (sport utility vehicle) produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota. This first compact crossover SUV made its debut in Japan and Europe in 1994, and in North America in 1995. The vehicle was designed for consumers wanting a vehicle that had most of the benefits of SUVs, such as increased cargo room, higher visibility, and the option of full-time four-wheel drive, along with the maneuverability and fuel economy of a compact car. Although not all RAV4s are four-wheel drive, RAV4 stands for "Recreational Active Vehicle with 4-wheel drive" because the aforementioned equipment is an option in select countries.

Buying a Toyota Vanguard from a car bond in Uganda


Buying a Vanguard from the bond in Uganda could be a lot simpler and less stressing as compared to someone who would go through the hassle of going all the way to Japan, looking for a vehicle, shipping, transporting it to Uganda and finally registering it fully. In this case of the bond, almost everything is done for you. One just has to simply pay for the vehicle and drive home. Car bonds try so hard to make sure their customers meet less bureaucracy involved in buying and owning the car as these clients will again be taken away by their competitors.
Getting to the price of the vanguard in some of the popular car bonds will largely depend on a number of factors like mileage of the vehicle, general condition of the car(damages on the car), dealer selling you the car(usually offer different prices), year of manufacture, your bargaining power among other factors. Generally the Toyota vanguard for example a 2012 model will cost around UGX 80,000,000 to UGX 95,000,000.

Importing a used Toyota vanguard from Japan


Now this is a different scenario. One will have to either order the vehicle online or physically fly to Japan and buy the car and personally organize its importation to Uganda. This means all of the costs are going to be met by you the owner of the car right from say Japan to Mombasa up to Uganda. Here one needs to determine the cost of the car while still in Japan from which the Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) are calculated. After that, arrangements are made to ship the car to Kampala, Uganda. After arriving in Kampala, then the required taxes have to be cleared. The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees. When all this is done, then you are free to drive home in your Toyota vanguard.
