When making plans to export your car to Sierra Leone, there are many factors that will need to be taken care of prior to shipping. First, you will need to hire a reputable transport company to handle the shipping. Next you will need to provide specific documents to the transporter as well as to customs and you will need to fill out quite a bit of paperwork.

Last, you will need to discuss with your auto transporter whether you will need the car to be picked up and driven to the exit port or picked up and delivered to you at your new home in Libya. Relocating is a stressful endeavor to take on, and your auto transporter will work with you to ensure that everything goes smoothly when it comes to preparing and having your car shipped internationally. The agent at the transport company will assist you in locating paperwork that will need to be filled out, and they will let you know what documents you will need to provide. The Federal Maritime Commission has an excellent article that details various International Laws and procedures to shipping internationally.

There are certain customs regulations that you must adhere to when moving your vehicle to Sierra Leone. You can gain valuable information on Visa and Customs regulations by contacting the Embassy of Sierra Leone in Washington, DC. They can assist you with import laws for personal items as well as vehicles and pets.

What methods of shipping are available to Sierra Leone?

There are three ways to have your vehicle shipped to Sierra Leone and those ways are:

  • Ro-Ro Shipping- Ro-Ro shipping is the quickest and least expensive way to ship your vehicle internationally. Vehicles are driven onto the ship and secured into place with straps and wooden blocks to prevent instability. When shipping with Ro-Ro you will need to make sure all personal items have been removed from the vehicle. Your auto shipper will give you details on times for shipping and the length of time it will take for the vehicle to arrive in Sierra Leone.
  • Container Shipping - When you ship your vehicle in a container aboard a freightliner you will be able to ship personal items along with the vehicle. Containers can be utilized in either 20 feet (for single cars) or 40 feet (Usually for two vehicles) as well as enough space for your necessary personal possessions.
  • Air Shipping - Transporting a car internationally through the air is the quickest option. It is the most expensive option but it is worth it if you need your car quickly or if you are shipping anything special like a vintage or luxury vehicle. When transporting a vehicle through the air you also have the option of including personal effects in the shipment.

Details About Each of A1’s Overseas Transport Methods

A1 has four methods of international transport to offer customers. Depending on the type of cargo you want delivered into Sierra Leone, only some of these methods may be available to you. Nevertheless, to give you some idea of what we have to offer, here is a list of our transport services...

  • Flat Rack Shipping
  • Container Shipping
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping

Flat rack shipping is an open air service that fastens your equipment to large metal frame before it is placed on the ship. The frame holds the cargo in place so that it doesn’t risk shifting during its transport. Lift On/Lift Off shipping is usually suggested to those with inoperable vehicles, construction equipment, and crated cargo. Roll On/Roll Off shipping is the least expensive open air service. Your vehicle or equipment must drive onto and off of the ship with the help of a ramp. Container shipping is an enclosed service that provides the greatest amount of protection from outside elements such as inclement weather.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
