Methods for shipping a vehicle to Mutsamudu.
Generally there are various methods that could be taken advantage of in order to import or to export a vehicle to Comoros from the US. The owner has to be present when the vehicle arrives. There are a few ports in Comoros. Nevertheless, two of these methods are the most practical and affordable and that is why a lot of people prefer using:
- Container shipping is definitely practical. It is advantageous for those who have to ship personal items along with the vehicle which is stored within the container. The rest of the space in the container can be filled up with additional household goods. You can choose different container sizes and are allowed to share the container with someone else, which would help you in saving some money.
- The Roll On – Roll Off method is also commonly referred to as the Ro/Ro shipping. This is a lot less expensive than shipping with a container. However, you can only transport your car using this method. The car is basically rolled on to the deck of the ship and then rolled off once it reaches the destination point. You are not allowed to put any personal items, leave loose car accessories and have to empty out the air conditioning gas before it is shipped.
You can contact the Embassy of Comoros and find the latest on the eligibility and regulations.
