Shipping A Car To Benin

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Since Benin is a West African country, it’s always cheaper to ship from a port on the eastern seaboard of the U.S. In some instances, this may mean you have to first have your vehicle shipped to an appropriate port.
  • You can expect costs to fall between $2,100 on the low end and $6,500 on the high end.

Benin is a beautiful country to relocate to. From the majestic temples and ruins to the spacious national parks and wildlife, Benin is one of the most extraordinary countries to live in. When you need to relocate your vehicle to Benin from the Unites States, there are a few things about the country that you should be aware of. Traffic can be very unpredictable, and while the major roadways are usually paved, most of the secondary roads are not. Be prepared to see livestock and many potholes in the roads, especially on the secondary roads. It is recommended to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle when traveling in Benin. When you’re ready to relocate your vehicle, you’ll need to ensure that you have the proper paperwork filled out and all of the necessary documents to accommodate the relocation.

Prior to Shipping Your Vehicle 

Prior to shipping/exporting your vehicle you will need to make sure that you have a finalized quote from the transport agency that will detail the type of shipping/exporting you have chosen, all paperwork and documents that will be required, and what you will need to do to prepare your vehicle for shipping. The agent will also go over the different types of shipping available for the area that you are relocating the vehicle to, and the specifics on what you need to do to prepare your vehicle to be shipped as well as the cost of shipping and delivery if you need the vehicle to be picked up at your location or delivered when it reaches Benin.

Types of Shipping 

Air Cargo Shipping – Shipping by air is the fastest way to have your vehicle shipped to Benin. While shipping a car via air cargo is the more expensive route to go, for those who may have a luxury car, air freight is not only the quickest way to have your vehicle delivered but is also the safest way to ship.

Container Shipping – With container shipping your vehicle will be loaded into a container and then loaded onto the carrier ship. Container shipping is a great service for those who may have personal items they need to have shipped along with their vehicle. People can often opt to share a container with another person or can utilize a container just for their own vehicle and/or personal belongings.

Ro-Ro Shipping – Roll-On Roll-Off Shipping is the least expensive as well as the fastest way to ship overseas by carrier ship. Your vehicle will be driven directly onto the carrier ship and secured in place, and then driven off when it reaches the destination port.
