How We Ship To Gambia
When getting your vehicle to Gambia, there are two ways in which we can transport it, the inexpensive and most popularly used way of transporting your car would be a through RORO, a roll on/roll off service. This is very popular due to its frequency from all major ports as well as its ease of loading: once the car is at port, all that is needed to be done is to drive it on board and secure it down in its parked spot. This is done to legions of cars heading to the same journey, RORO vessels are designed safely house thousands.
The alternative to RORO is to load your car into a container. It is secured inside and the doors closed and locked, ensuring an extra layer of security for your car. Containers come in varying lengths, usually 20 or 40ft, to fit your needs. Containers can sometimes be shared between multiple shipments and consignments to save on cost. You are usually able to ship your car with items such as personal belongings stored inside. This is something that is generally not allowed with RORO, as your car is required to be accessible at all times during transport, and having items inside can cause complications.
