Shipping automobiles across the ocean is a task that shipping services have had many years to perfect. Professional shipping companies can offer safe and reliable shipping services to get vehicle shipped to Gabon.
Experienced international transporters have many services to offer their customers. Many of these services are optional and can better the transport, making it safer, faster or more suitable to your needs.
How to Select a Shipping Option.
The most inexpensive way to ship a car to Gabon is the open air transport method. This is where the vehicle is secured to the deck of the ship where it will remain for the duration of the trip. If you own an expensive or antique vehicle, you are better off transporting the vehicle inside of a container. Containers offer the vehicle protection against the elements and theft.
What Happens If My Car Is Damaged?
Damages don’t occur often at all, but accidents can happen and it is always best for a transporter to prepare accordingly so they can keep their customers cars protected. If any new dents or scratches should appear on the vehicle after it reaches its destination, be sure to report it immediately to the shipping service. Writing down any damages prior to the delivery process of the car will make your claim more valid. Make sure to provide evidence such as photographs of the vehicles condition before and after the shipping process occurred.
Prepare the Correct Documents for Customs.
- Title and Registration.
- Seaway Bill.
- Visa and Passport.
- Drivers License.
- Insurance Policy.
- Spare Keys.
