    Default USA to Africa

    Hello! I currently live in Dallas, TX USA and I would like to ship my 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Djibouti via shipping container. Because of its size I would have to consider a 40’ container. I’m planning to have it shipped there between October and November. Has anyone here ever shipped their vehicle this way or similar? Would anyone like to share a container to cut cost? I would also consider RoRo if I know my vehicle will not be tampered with. Thanks for the info!

    You shipping to Africa, and you want the comfort to know your vehicle won’t be tampered with.

    Enjoy Africa, it's gonna be a blast.

    I imagine if it’s in a container then it’ll be fine.

    Welcome to this forum. There is so much to read and digest on this forum, and I wish you the very best for your research.

    Wow! Your question is more than somewhat mind-boggling for a number of reasons - although there are many of us here who do have experience in the Horn of Africa and East Africa (plus, of course, with this being a South African forum, the southern African countries).

    Here is the link to the last time the question was raised on shipping into Djibouti. It is at the end of my trip report from Nairobi, Kenya to the Bale Mountains, Ethiopia. We had, previously driven from England to South Africa (and back to Kenya). https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...31#post4440631

    Thank you for your help. Apologies if my original post was lacking. I’m seeking for any information I can as I know very little already. The post you tagged was good information! Thanks again.

    Have a look at this Youtube series from a Canadian. Look through the various installments. There is one on how to ship a vehicle from North America to Africa. Plenty of other very good advice in the other episodes.
