You will have two options to choose from when shipping your vehicle to Dânan, Djibouti. Container shipping is the best way to secure your vehicle during transport but it is also the most expensive. With this method of shipping, your vehicle is placed inside a container where it is sealed up and loaded onto the ship for transport. This method of shipping protects your vehicle from all types of weather. You will also be able to ship personal/household items with your vehicle inside the container.
The Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping is the most affordable way to ship your vehicle, however, there are a few rules you will need to follow in order to use this method. First, your vehicle must be cleaned out completely. Unlike the container shipping method, no personal items are allowed inside the car during the RORO transport. With RORO, the vehicle is driven onto the deck of the ship, fastened down in a bay and then transported.
If you have any questions regarding importing to Djibouti, you will need to contact A1 Auto Transport Service or contact the Embassy of Djibouti for further information.
