Shipping A Car To Ghana

What you should know about shipping your vehicle from the United States to Ghana?

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • There’s a pretty wide range of shipping costs from the U.S. to Ghana, but most vehicles are moved for $2,500 to $7,000. 
  • There is generally limited availability in the area, both in terms of routes and companies that ship to the area, which can make it an expensive process.

Depending on which American ports your chosen international shipper uses and also which part of the country you live in, you will need to determine which port will be your departure port, and how your vehicle will get there. If it is more convenient to have the shipper pick the vehicle up at your home, that is fairly easy to arrange, but the trucking costs will be added to your shipping bill.

Then you will need to decide on a shipping method for your vehicle. The least expensive method is by Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) because you are only charged for the space your vehicle takes up on board the ship. It is also somewhat more exposed during shipping, which accounts in part for its cheaper cost.

If you choose to ship using the container method, your car will be placed in either a 20-ft container or a 40-ft container and secured inside. Then that container will need to be lifted on and off the ship by a crane in both departure and destination ports, which is why not all ports can handle containerized shipments.

Your Vehicle

There are a couple reasons why the make, model, and year of your vehicle are important for international shipping, especially to Ghana. Knowing these statistics will automatically determine its dimensions and those are important with regard to the space it will occupy on the ship. Also when shipping to Ghana, the Customs officials will not allow a vehicle more than 10 years old into the country, so be advised.

There can be nothing at all inside the car for shipping other than a spare set of car keys, which will be needed for RORO shipping because the car will be driven on and off the ship under its own power. This means you must also have a ¼ tank of gas or less in the tank when shipping.

If your vehicle is one that could be considered a classic or if its value makes it an expensive car, you may want to consider taking out extra insurance on the vehicle. While most shipping carriers already have some level of insurance, you might feel more comfortable if a valuable car had greater protection.

Shipping Requirements

  • The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency will require some documentation prior to departure that demonstrates clear ownership of the vehicle – an original bill of sale will do nicely.
  • You must provide a current title to establish the fact that there are no liens against the vehicle, which essentially qualifies it for export from the country. Should there be existing liens outstanding on the vehicle, you must secure from the lienholder notarized authorization which expressly allows the export of the vehicle from this country.

Both the total cost and the total transit time of the vehicle will depend on several factors, some of which have been described above. If you can provide the information recommended to your selected international carrier, it should be fairly easy for that company to quickly respond with an estimate of both.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Ghana

  1. Driver's license & registration.
  2. Proof of insurance.
  3. Passport.
  4. Registration card.
  5. Purchase invoice.
  6. Bill of lading.
  7. Certificate of non-sale.

Once the vehicle arrives at one of Ghana’s ports, possibly Tema, Accra, or Takoradi, a tax will be levied on it which must be paid before it clears Customs.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Ghana

Transporting heavy equipment and oversized cargo overseas is a difficult task for anyone without the right shipping technology or equipment. It also takes knowledge and understanding of foreign import laws. Luckily, A1 Auto Transport has access to everything they need to carry out a successful international transport. When you give us a call to receive a free quote or schedule your transport we will help you choose the best transport method and shipping solutions according to the type of heavy equipment or oversized cargo you need to ship to Ghana.

There is an ongoing list of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we’re able to transport internationally. If you are curious if we’re capable of shipping your cargo, here is a summary of the types of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we will transport…

  • Construction equipment including bulldozers, forklifts, dumpers, heavy duty vehicles, cranes, etc.
  • Mining equipment including loaders, excavators, haulers, rock breakers, etc.
  • Paving equipment including asphalt pavers, milling machines, planers, compactors, motor graders, reclaimers, etc.
  • Agricultural equipment including tractors, planters, cotton pickers, combine harvesters, plows, balers, backhoes, spreaders, drills, mowers, etc.

How A1 Transports Heavy Equipment and Oversized Cargo Internationally

There are several methods of transport available to those shipping heavy equipment or oversized cargo to Ghana. The specific kind of heavy equipment, vehicle or cargo you have to ship will determine which methods are available to you in particular. Overall, here are the overseas shipping services we have to offer…

  • Flat Rack Transport
  • Container Transport
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping (RoRo)
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping (LoLo)

Only one of the four overseas transport methods is an enclosed service. As long as your cargo can fit into a 40ft shipping container, you are able to purchase this transport method for the delivery process. Container shipping is slightly more expensive than the other options due to the extra security provided by the walls and ceiling of the container.

Out of our open air overseas transport methods, RoRo shipping is the least expensive. Although it’s the cheapest, it is safe and reliable. In fact, it is the most popular overseas shipping option offered. As for LoLo shipping, it is recommended to those with inoperable vehicles or crated equipment. Flat rack shipping is the most secure open air method since it secures your cargo to a metal frame for its transport. This prevents it from shifting during its journey aboard the ship.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
