If you plan on staying in Benin for a long period of time, have your car transported with you. International car shipping is easy and affordable and will save you from overpaying for public transport.
You’ll also have the ability to travel freely through the country freely. Professionals ship your car to Benin with such certainty that they provide free insurance coverage.
The most tedious part of a transport is preparing the proof for the Customs department. Your car might be denied import approval if it doesn’t meet the restriction in the country’s import policy. Get in touch with the Embassy of Benin for the latest import laws and tax rates. Your transporter will have their professionals lend a hand through this process.

- The RO/RO method is the most common way to ship a car outside of the U.S. After your car has been inspected, it will be loaded onto the deck of the vessel and secured. With this option, all personal items must be removed from the vehicle. Items left inside of the vehicle cannot be insured by the shipping company.
- Container transport is not as popular due to its price, but it’s certainly the most secure shipping solution available. Your vehicle will be behind locked doors for the entire trip protected against the elements. Shippers are permitted to load other household goods into their vehicles and the extra space of the container. This shipping method is especially useful for anyone permanently relocating.
