Types of Shipping Options
Those shipping to Malawi will have two different shipping options to choose from:
- Container shipping is a good option when you have a vehicle that is more expensive or you want to protect from the weather on the sea. It is also a good option if you are interested in shipping over your personal items as well. You can choose from a 20 or 40-foot container so you can adjust your size according to your budget and your needs. As the container is sealed after everything is packed inside, it will only be opened at the port in Malawi within the presence of Customs officials.
- Roll On/ Roll Off – RORO shipping is a more affordable option. Your car will need to be completely cleaned out, non-permanent accessories removed, while fuel and air conditioning gas need to be removed to minimize fire hazards. This is the cheapest option as you only pay for the parking bay. Your vehicle will be placed in a bay on a deck of a cargo ship where it will ride until it reaches the port in Malawi.
