North American Automobile market is famous worldwide for its good offers, great variety of products and pretty much affordable prices. Seeing that Nigeria’s autobuilding industry isn’t very developed yet, it’s no wonder that the major part of local car dealers prefers buying vehicles from the US or Canada and ship them down to Lagos. Luckily, in the age of the Internet, we all can fully enjoy the possibility of buying literally everything online, with the click of a button.
One of the perks of buying cars from the American wholesale auto-market is a good choice of buying options. To each their own; some prefer doing it the easy way and go for a right-away purchase at a fixed price, while the others are ready to spend some time and apply efforts bidding in car auctions to try and get vehicles for cheaper rates.
Having said that, one must not forget about the shipping procedure to get the purchased unit delivered to Nigeria, because most of wholesale car auction and dealers do not deal with shipping after sale. Best to remember to find out whether a chosen company provides such service or not prior to closing the deal.
In order to be exported, the car has to get by ground to the port of departure first and, once it gets there, clear customs in North America. The so-called inland delivery is being done on a flatbed truck, and the price depends on the distance driven between the selling facilities to the exit port, you’ve chosen. As soon as the car is at the port, it can be either loaded inside a container and then onto a vessel by a portal crane, or driven on its wheels inside a special-purpose RoRo vessel directly.
So, seeing that there are two ways to get car shipped across the ocean, there are also two prices for each of them. Usually, RoRo service to Lagos, Nigeria is cheaper and somewhat faster, but certain conditions apply. For instance, the car in-question must be fully operable to drive on its own and should not have severe damages on the body.
On average, shipping takes two months, and once the car arrives to the destination port, it must clear local customs. Just like in a lot of other countries, Nigeria has relatively high car import duties. Nevertheless, even combined with the shipping cost, it is still worth the buying cars from North America. The way your car is cleared also depends on the method of ocean shipping, – inside a container or onto a RoRo vessel.
