Every year, thousands of vehicles are shipped out of the U.S. and into different countries. For what Ethiopia lacks in seaports, it makes up for with an intricate system of railways and roads. Shipping regulations do vary throughout this continent, but Mek’ele has a hassle free system.

You will want to be sure that the car you are shipping has at least a quarter tank of gas, and that it is operable. If the car is missing tires or doesn’t drive, the vehicle will have to be transported in a container. Cracked or chipped windows should be repaired before the car leaves the U.S. in order to prevent the window from any further damage.

There are two ways a shipping service can have a vehicle transported to Mek’ele. The first option and most cost efficient is the roll on, roll off method. For this method you will need to remove all other possessions from the vehicle and the car must be able to roll onto the vessel.

Container shipping is another more expensive option, but it is also safer. It is also more convenient because customers can store possessions within the car and inside of the container itself. If someone needs two cars transported to Mek’ele, they can save on costs by sharing the same container.
