Ways to Ship a Vehicle
There are two main methods for vehicle shipment for automobiles leaving the United States to enter another country. These methods aren't nearly as costly as air shipping and are quite reliable.
The container shipping method is a bit more costly, but it allows the vehicle's owner to ship other belongings as well. There are two container sizes to select from. The vehicle is then placed into the container aboard a ship. The vehicle and the container can be filled with property. All items must be allowed to enter West Africa. Customs can inform you of the legality of the items you'd like to ship. The container can be shared with another individual to help lessen the shipping costs.
RO/RO shipping is the cheapest method of vehicle shipment. The vehicle must remain empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire. The automobile is then driven onto and off of the ship during import and export. This method is not accepted at all ports.
The owner of the vehicle must be aware of the port their vehicle will be delivered to. It is important to have a ride arranged to get to the port on the day that the vehicle is due for arrival. Ports will not hold a vehicle for the owner.
