When shipping a car to Nigeria there are a number of issues you will need to pay close attention to:
1). Overseas car transport to Nigeria now requires the completion of special government regulated import documentation prior to shipping from the United States. The Nigerian Federal Executive Council require all importers to obtain a Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) for all shipments. Recently several steamship lines have required shippers to obtain this note before their vehicle can be loaded on board the vessel in the United States. When quoting car shipping quotes to Nigeria we try to remind all customers to secure this CTN prior to shipping. We can assist you with obtaining the Cargo Tracking Note through the use of a third-party company that has been designated to administer the CTN. Costs for the CTN depend on the size of the vehicle.
3). Confirm whether you prefer to ship your vehicle to Nigeria via roll-on / roll-off service or by container service. International car shipping by container is available to Tin Can Island, Nigeria. For more information on available international shipping services at the port of Tin Can Island / Lagos, Nigeria visit our port information page here.
4). Some roll-on / roll-off service to Nigeria is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, this means you might not get an exact sailing date at the time of your booking. If you are looking for the most affordable way to transport your car to Nigeria this is it, but you must keep in mind your car might not ship from the USA port for up to a month after delivery to port.
The above just highlights some important factors you should take into consideration before shipping your car to Nigeria.
