Bohicon is a city in Benin and is approximately about 9 kilometers from the city of Abomey on the main highway to Parakou. It is the crossroads of international trade because of its strategic location at the center of the country.
How A1 Autotransport can help you?
Have you been planning to move to Benin and work or reside in Bohicon? Irrespective of the reason behind your move, you have to have a personal vehicle to traverse the city. Even though the roads are not perfect, having your own vehicle is definitely going to be helpful. You need to be aware of the fact that the traffic is rather unpredictable and the main roads are paved but unpaved stretches within the city itself are quite common.
As it is with any international transportation, you would have to prepare quite a few documents and fill out a lot of paperwork in order to get through with the Benin Customs Department process. However, the A1 Auto Transport service is here to help you out. With over 20 years of international shipping experience and plenty of vehicles successfully shipped to Benin in the past, we understand all of the details that are necessary for a proper import.

Procedures to go through.
You would need to get a final quote from the A1 Auto transport so that you are well aware of the total cost. The government of Benin requires the paperwork a bit early and it’s recommended that you steam clean the vehicle thoroughly in order to avoid any unwanted delays. The cost of the charges is usually going to be based on the CIF value of the car.
You have the choice to select from Container shipping and RORO which are going to be more suitable if you are on a tight budget as air shipping is rather expensive.
- Container shipping – this method would involve your car being placed within an enclosed container and you can fill it up with all sorts of personal belongings. It’s more expensive than RORO but also brings great value if you have a lot of household goods.
- Roll-On/ Roll-Off Shipping – this is the most economic option in front of you. Your car is loaded on a freight ship and delivered as it is. You are allowed to leave nothing but the car jack, spare tire, a ¼ tank of gas, spare set of keys, floor mats and nothing else.
