How cars and vehicles shipping works
Basically, the two methods of car or vehicle shipping are Roll on roll off (Roro) and Container car and vehicle shipping method. By Roro, the said car or vehicle is driven unto a ship . While the Container car and vehicle shipping method is when the car or vehicle is put in a container for shipping. Depending on the car and vehicle method you choose, if you opt for the Roll on roll off option(Roro) that means you would need to pay for the cost of shipping only. This means you would have to look for your own clearing agent to assist you with clearing the car in Nigeria. We can recommend some few clearing agents in Nigeria who can as well assist you with the clearing process but we are not directly involved or responsible for the business transaction between you and the agents, just you know.
On the other hand, if you decide to go for the container car or vehicle shipping method. There are two things you can do , the vehicle can be cleared by your own chosen agent or if it is a car, we can put the car as part of our consolidated freight. In that case we will ship the car for you and as well being responsible for the clearing back in Nigeria.
Kindly take note that if what you have to ship is a long wheel based vehicle, such as Mercedes Sprinter Van or the long wheel base Ford transit van including Volvo van and Volkswagen van, your best option is Roro. This is simply because of the reason of space and cost. Luxury and Exotic cars such as Range Rovers, Bentley, Mercedes Jeep, Ferrari car etc attract a higher duties charge and the cost of their clearing is relatively high.
