Ship Car To Togo

How to Transport a Vehicle to Togo From The United States

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Shipping a car to Togo from the United States will generally cost between $2,300 and $6,400.
  • Import taxes for vehicles brought into the country can run as much as 50% or more so keep that in mind when considering shipping to the area.

Togo is a part of West Africa with tropical climates and a civilization largely dependent on agriculture. While there is a lot to do and see, public transportation is scarce. If staying there for an extended period of time or perhaps even permanently, consider shipping a personal vehicle to the country for less strenuous travel.

The Issues with Public Transportation within Togo

Public Transportation in Togo is scarce. There are means of public transit that include buses and taxis, but they’re not as bountiful as they are in the U.S. Trying to travel within the country is problematic is a person intends on locally traveling often.

The roadways in Togo are all paved and can be driven on without too many issues. Nonetheless, the roadways crack easily in the dry months and fill quickly with water and mud during the rain season. This could make it hard to travel safely and can even cause damage to your vehicle.

Things to Keep In Mind Prior to Exporting Your Vehicle to West Africa

Prior to sending your car to West Africa for your move to Togo, it is important to be on-site at the day of the vehicle’s arrival, whether it was shipped in a container or by the RO/RO shipping method. Make sure that the right shipping method is selected and that all documentation is acquired.

There are only a few ports in the U.S. in which your vehicle can be exported to Africa and only one port within Africa. Transportation to the proper ports will need to be considered. The entire process should be handled carefully and quickly. Try to find assistance and stay organized. Keep all documents organized and prepared for Customs.
