Car Shipping to Banjul

Car Shipping to Gambia

First Base Freight offers affordable, vehicle shipping to Gambia by RORO and container services from Tilbury to arrival Banjul every week.  Vehicles should be left hand drive if they are being shipped to Banjul.  The alternative is to ship a right hand drive vehicle by first obtaining a Gambian Police Waiver Certificate.  This certificate must be shown to the port loaders at Tilbury when the vehicle is being dropped off or a copy must be scanned and emailed to us if we are delivering the vehicle for you.  RORO shipping from the UK to Banjul is by far the favoured choice by our customers due to the savings made over container services.  Personal goods can be loaded in to any vehicle but please note that these items would be shipped at your own risk as the shipping lines do not accept liability if anything gets damaged or goes missing on route to the Gambia.
