Shipping A Car To Nigeria
Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?
- Nigeria is one of the more expensive countries to ship a car to from the U.S., generally in the $3,000 to $7,000 range.
- Part of the reason it’s more expensive than other destinations is the shipping distance and the limited availability of routes and accessible ports in the area.
Nigeria import is strict in some cases, but when it comes to a personal vehicle, it is rather simple. While there is a lot of documentation that will be needed, most of it the owner will already have on hand. Nigeria isn’t known for its superb public transportation, so having a vehicle during an extended trip or even permanent residency will be advantageous.

The country consists of many roadways, having the second largest road network in all of West Africa. Unfortunately, the roads are unkempt and there have been many reported accidents and deaths due to the roads’ poorly maintained conditions.
