Ports in Mauritania
The ports that travel from the United States to Mauritania include Port of New York, Port of Los Angeles, and Port of Savannah.
There are two standard shipping options for shipping vehicles to a different country. Roll On/Roll Off services are available and the most frequently used. The vehicle is basically driven onto the ship once it has passed inspection. It requires the vehicle to be empty and devoid of any personal goods. The only items allowed inside the car are jack, spare tire, and floor mats. It will be driven onto an enclosed deck where it will be fastened and secured so it doesn’t move while in transit. The next option is the container option. This option offers you to put the car inside secured 20 feet or 40 feet closed containers on the deck of the ship while in transit. Your vehicle will be placed inside of a container where it will stay until reaching the port and driven off.

Preparation for inspection and Custom clearance
To prepare for your inspection, make sure that you have the necessary paperwork filled out and all the forms signed appropriately. It’s important that all paperwork is done before you have the inspection done so your inspection will go more smoothly and customs will have everything they need to transport your vehicle. If you don’t have all the paperwork filled out or if the inspection goes wrong, your vehicle will not be allowed to transport until the issue is cleared up. This can cause weeks of delays that you may not be able to afford if you are relocating or have spent money scheduling appointments and/or interviews. It’s important that you make your trip on schedule. Ensure that you or someone is there with the required documents to unload the vehicle off the ship and pay the needed import duties and other taxes.
