Shipping A Car To Ethiopia
Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?
- Because of the distance involved in shipping a car to Ethiopia from the U.S., it is not cheap.
- Standard vehicles transported to the area generally cost between $3,600 and $7,200, with costs being higher for larger vehicle types and those shipped from the West Coast.
If an extended trip or even permanent residence in Ethiopia is in the near future, have a personal vehicle shipped there for personal use. It will give a person the freedom to travel when ever necessary without being burdened with the Horn of Africa’s public transportation, language barriers and currency issues.
Having a personal vehicle transported from the United States to Ethiopia isn’t as difficult as it may seem. While, exporting to Southern Africa is more difficult due to its strict regulations, shipping a vehicle to the Horn of Africa isn’t nearly as difficult. The regulations for vehicle shipping differ throughout the continent.
