When you ship to Sudan, the port authorities accepts two different shipping methods; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. When you use the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method, your vehicle will be driven directly onto the ship deck and secured in a parking bay before the ship leaves. Once it reaches the port in Sudan, it will be driven off the deck of the ship and turned over to customs. This method of shipping is the most affordable but there are a few rules to use this method:
- You must remove all air conditioning gas from your air conditioning unit.
- You must steam clean the vehicle both inside and out.
- Leave only 1/4 tank of gas in your gas tank for the trip.
- Disable all car alarms so they don't go off during transit.
- The vehicle must be operational to board the ship.
Container shipping involves hiring a container that you can pack with your vehicle and still have room to pack personal and household items as well. These containers are available in twenty foot or forty foot and provide enough space that you may want to consider sharing some in order to share the cost of shipping this way. You can contact the Embassy of Sudan in order to learn more about the current laws and regulations for shipping the vehicle to Sudan.
