If you have come across the need to have your car shipped to Ethiopia, you will need to consider what shipping method is best for the vehicle. Of course, with such a long distance between the U.S. and Ethiopia, you want to think about providing your car with the utmost protection.
All of the shipping services available for overseas transports are cost effective and safe. However, some offer slightly higher levels of protection along with other benefits.
The container shipping method is perhaps the most practical and popular way to have a car shipped to Ethiopia. The car will be secured inside of a large shipping container for its journey. This container comes in various sizes. A customer service rep for the transport company can help you select the appropriate shipping container.
Explanation of Container Shipping Methods.
Container shipping methods offer the most protection and security for the car’s journey from the U.S. to Ethiopia. It hides the car from weather conditions and other obstacles that might cause harm while abroad. Not only is the container shipping method more secure, but it allows individuals purchasing this method to ship other belongings with the car.
There are various container sizes. Choose the one that best suits your circumstances. Even the smallest size of shipping container may be more space than you find necessary. If you are moving with other people, see if they would be willing to split the cost of the container and space. Make sure that all the items packed away in the container awaiting their transport are permitted through the country’s import policies. Call the Embassy of Ethiopia to learn more about the policies in place.
