If you would like professional dismantling services at an extra cost, this will save you on import duty fees. It allows your machinery to more easily fit inside the containers, and because it involves shipping parts and not fully assembled machinery, you may save money.

The seven departure ports from the USA to Oman are:
There is one arrival port Oman that we use, and that is SOHAR Port, a deep-sea port centrally located within easy reach of the Gulf and the Indian subcontinent. This is where your designated person will sign for the shipment and at the same time pay in cash for tax and duty.
How Much Does it Cost to Ship Heavy Machinery to Oman?

To ship heavy machinery from USA to Oman, it takes six weeks from the West Coast and seven weeks from the East Coast.

Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to Oman
We use RoRo (roll on/roll off) ships for heavy machinery, which leave weekly from all seven U.S. seaports listed above to the port in Oman.
RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)
If you want to cost efficiently ship heavy machinery, construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, and trailers, this is the way to go. The inside of the ship looks and acts like a parking garage, with ramps that the equipment can be wheeled up and down. With set departure and arrival dates, this method is very reliable, almost like an airport.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
We highly recommend it but we don’t require it. It’s good for peace of mind so that you don’t have to worry about paying out of pocket for damage that may occur to your shipment while in transit. If you find 100% coverage is too expensive, you may cover your machinery for 50% or 75% of the equipment’s value instead. We offer:
1.75% of the value of the machinery for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. Your coverage starts when the machinery is brought onto the ship until the time it is collected at the arrival port.
