Shipping Cars To Africa  – RoRo  Car Shipment

RoRo car shipment is the most cost effective, safest and easiest way to ship a car to Africa. The car has to be able to go up the ramp (Roll on) and down the ramp (Roll off).

Once your car is aboard the ship, it is secured to the deck with straps and braces. This prevents your car from moving if the ship is rocking at sea and is the safest way to export a car to Africa.

We basically roll your car on and off the ship. There is no crane or lifting of vehicles. We have regular departures so you don’t have to wait too long for your car to arrive in Africa. We will reserve your spot on the ship by issuing you a booking number.

Shipping Cars To Africa  – Container Car Shipment

An alternative to RoRo shipping is to export cars using cargo ships. There are many more cargo ships available so they are able to sail into remote parts of the world whereas a RoRo ship cannot readily do so.

The only time there may be a drawback with container car shipping is when using a shared container. While delays in shipping are infrequent, the shipping line will not ship a container with only one car inside. You might have to wait for a couple of other cars to be added.
