How to ship your car to Nigeria

RoRo is by far the simplest and most inexpensive method of moving your vehicle to Lagos, Nigeria. The loading process could not be any simpler. Cars are driven directly into the specialised vessel and secured to the car decks inside, away from the weather of the journey. These vessels are large enough to hold thousands of cars on board their multiple decks. RORO to the port of Tin Can Island in Lagos sails once a month from the port of Tilbury and takes approximately 26 days in transit.

The freight containers tend to be a more expensive option, but since they are closed and locked during transit, there is some added security to your shipment. This is a good choice for cars of a high value or fragility. You can also store personal items in your car when exporting by container, something that isn't usually allowed with RORO.
