Shipping from USA to Tin Can Island, Nigeria
Posted: June 8, 2017
1. How long does it take to arrive to Tin Can Island?
The ship takes approximately 2 weeks to arrive to Tin Can Island once it takes off from the East coast USA. What takes time is actually waiting for the next available ship. At times the wait time could be up to 1 month because there are so many people shipping to Nigeria now but you could get lucky. It should take about 30 days to arrive to Tin Can Island.
This does not stop you from doing the paper work with the shipping company and dropping the car at the port.
2. How much is the shipping cost to Tin Can Island?
Shipping cost from USA to Tin Can Island is $1500 if you are shipping RORO, but rates have been going up. Container is cheaper if you're shipping more than one car. For example shipping a 40ft container from NJ would cost you about $6k and about $5k if you don't mind it going the longer route that could take up to 6 weeks.
3. Which is better, RORO or Container to Tin Can Island?
The Tin Can Island port is second largest port in West Africa and is pretty safe these days so a lot of people ship RORO, except of course if you have more than one car. If you have up to 4 cars to ship, the container is definitely your best option. You are fully assured of the safety of your goods and you can also load other items in it. It might cost a bit more when clearing the container though. In terms of security, there is not much differrence, the RORO port is safe now. RORO is cheaper to ship and also to clear.
