Shipping Cars to Botswana
International car shipping from the UK to Botswana by roll on/roll off services out of Sheerness or Killingholme allows us to offer great prices to anyone looking to ship a car, van or truck via Namibia. The port of Walvis Bay in Namibia is the most popular port of arrival for anyone looking to ship a vehicle to Botswana. Transit time to Namibia takes approximately 18 days from the UK plus a further 5-7 days for delivery to Gaborone.
As International car shipping specialists we have a huge amount of experience in all aspects of vehicle shipping by either roll on/roll off or by container services to Botswana. Our highly respected partners in Namibia offer daily deliveries from Walvis Bay to Gaborone and can include clearance and free storage time at their purpose built warehouse and parking facility situated at the port of Walvis Bay.
Car Shipping Services to Botswana
There are two options available to ship a car to Botswana, equally safe and secure. The cheapest and most popular way of moving your vehicle is by Roll on/Roll off (RORO). This is where your vehicle is driven onto a specialised vessel and secured to the decks inside. At the end of the journey the car is then ready to be driven off where it is then parked inside a secure compound. The second way is by secured containers, where your vehicle is driven and loaded into a dedicated 20ft or 40ft container and is secured using ratchet straps and wheel blocks.
How to ship your car to Botswana
The one thing to remember when shipping a car to Botswana is that vehicles can only be driven from Walvis Bay up to Botswana border on temporary road plates. If your vehicle crosses over the border you can no longer drive it but would in fact have to engage the services of a transporter to drive it through Botswana for you.
