For nearly 10 years, customers have come to us to move their cars and household goods from the United States to Nigeria. It is easy to see why - we collect from anywhere in the US, we can load cars and goods in one container, we ship from both California and New York, and we offer competative rates!
The cheapest port to ship containers to in Nigeria is the port of Lagos. It takes around 50 days to ship to Lagos from California, and 40 days from New York.
Cars can be shipped overseas in a container or via Roll-on/Roll off. Container shipping from New Jersey is around $1,100 and it takes around 40 days for the container to arrive in Nigeria. Shipping from California is $1,400 and transit time is 50 days. Get current rates for car shipping in a container by using our calculator on this page. This will allow you take advatage of the current rate and save it for 30 days.
RoRo shipping can be less expensive but the car must run and drive, and shipping routes are on a less frequent schedules.
We also accept car imports to the USA from Nigeria.
Documents Required for Export
Shipping your car from the United States requires the clearance of US customs. This step requires a few documents to be submitted to prove to the US government that you own the car. Here are the documents required:
Bill of Sale for the vehicle
Original Vehicle Title - if it currently has a lien on it, you must also provide a lien release letter
Copy of Passport (if you are an international citizen without a US passport)
Copy of EIN letter if you are a US citizen
Contact us if you have any questions about the documents required to ship your car overseas to Georgia.
By using a container for shipping, we can load anywhere from 1 to 6 cars (depending on size), the vehicles can either run and drive, or be project cars. We offer consolidation when shipping to the port, saving you money by shipping your vehicles along with other cars in the same container. When shipping high-value vehicles, we can load them in their own dedicated 20ft or 40ft containers.
Shipping via Roll-on/Roll-off is another option when shipping cars overseas. However, unlike with containarized car shipping, you cannot ship anything inside of your vehicle, and the car be in run and drive condition to be able to drive on and off the ship. The ports which support RoRo vary widely, and so do the rates.
If you require your vehicle overseas as quickly as possible, we recommend shipping the car via Air-Freight service. Compared to lengthy shipping times and possible port delays when shipping in a container or via RoRo, shipping your car by Air is the quickest shipping options. Transit time is estimated at around 3 to 10 days, depending on the documentation and customs requirements.
How Motorcycles Are Shipped Overseas
Motorcycles are a popular import from the US, and most customers use a container. You can fit up to 8 motorcycles in a 20ft container and up to 16 in a 40ft container. They are securely strapped and braced. This makes it the perfect solution for wholesale buyers and dealers. Use the shipping calculator on this page to get a quote, or contact us.
Another option is shipping your motorcycle via air freight to any international airport. It's a more expensive option, and it requires a custom crate to be built around the bike. However, air freight will minimize transit time.
