International car transport to West Africa can be simple if you ship with one of the leading overseas shipping companies and freight forwarders such as K International. Let’s take a look at what you should consider when deciding to ship your car to West Africa:
You can ship your auto overseas to West Africa using the following methods: roll-on / roll-off (ro/ro) service, container shipping and air shipping. Ro/Ro shipping is the most affordable and popular method of overseas car shipping to West Africa while air shipping is the most expensive way to send your car to Africa.
Low-cost inexpensive direct roll-on/roll-off (ro/ro) international automobile shipping service from the United States is available to the following West African countries: Dakar, Senegal; Cotonou, Benin; Lagos, Nigeria; Lome, Togo and Tema, Ghana.
Indirect ro/ro overseas car shipping service is also available from the USA to: Banjul, Gambia; Conarky, Guinea; Freetown, Sierra Leone; Monrovia, Liberia; Boma, Democratic Republic of Congo; Douala, Cameroon; Libreville, Gabon; Pointe Noire, Congo; Luanda, Angola; and Takoradi, Ghana.
Vehicles that are shipped internationally to West Africa from the USA via ro/ro service must follow the below guidelines:
  • Vehicle must be free of all personal effects
  • Vehicle must be clean and have no more than ¼ tank of gas upon pick-up at door or delivery to port.
  • Vehicle must have the original title or MSO to clear USA customs
Looking to ship multiple cars to West Africa or have other items you will need to ship? International container shipping is also available from the USA to most West African ports including: Tin Can Island, Nigeria; Onne, Nigeria; Matadi, Democratic Republic of Congo; Lobito, Angola; Walvis Bay, Namibia; Malabo, Equitorial Guinea and more!
Car shipping overseas to West Africa also has a number of requirements to keep in mind:
  • Check to see if there is an overseas auto shipping age restriction for the destination country as some West African countries do not allow international automobile shipments for cars older than 2-10 years.
  • Some countries in West Africa require a cargo loading certificate for all incoming international car shipments.
  • Check to see if your country also requires a pre-shipping inspection prior to international car transport to the destination country.
