When you export your vehicle, you will need to decide which method of shipping you are most interested in. There are two methods to choose from; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. The Roll On/ Roll Off consists of driving your vehicle onto the open deck of a freight ship where it will remain during transport. Once the ship reaches the port, it will be driven off. The second option is the container shipping option which provides shelter for your vehicle during the trip. You can also securely place personal items inside the container during transport if desired.
U.S. Ports for Transfer
There are currently three ports in the United States to Namibia. They are New York, New York, Los Angeles, California, and Savannah, Georgia. When determining which port is the right place for you to ship out of, you will need to determine the shipping cost that each one charges. There is a difference in regulations inside the US and outside as well. You will need to contact the embassy to find out more information about exporting to other countries to help you make your decision of exporting easier.
