To even ship a car to Liberia you need a freight ship or other large vessel, as well as durable transport equipment. The international delivery of a vehicle is something that must be handled by trained professionals in the shipping industry.
As a customer, you’re responsible for assuring that the vehicle is approved for import. Professionals at the transport company will help you with this process when you buy shipping services through them. They make the process much easier.
A lot of overseas transport companies will offer free quotes over the phone or email. After giving them answers to some of their questions, they will provide you with a quote. Make sure you tell them that you prefer shipping with the container method. Unless you provide them with some information, giving an exact price on the transport is difficult. Tell them you prefer enclosed shipping methods. See if you can get an estimate for the cost of shipping your car through container transport services.
Learn about the Container Shipping Service.
To keep your car safe from poor weather and other outside obstacles, use enclosed shipping services. This method is often referred to by most transporters as container shipping. There are some stipulations for those using this method. The transport company will explain this transport method more thoroughly. You can expect the utmost security when you buy this shipping service for your car’s transport to Liberia.
To make sure you have enough space for the car and whatever else you may ship over, pick the appropriate container size. The space in the smallest shipping container may be more than you need, so ask customer service for their suggestion. If you are moving with other people, see if they would be willing to split the cost of the container and space. Anything in the shipping container must have approval from Customs. The Embassy of Liberia will happily provide you with information regarding the import policy in place.
