Shipping and Removals in Nigeria

Many reputable companies offer shipping and removal services to Nigeria.
Costs relate directly to the volume of goods sent, and the speed desired for shipping. Air freight services to Nigeria are the quickest, but considerably more expensive. Some companies also offer storage services and insurance on goods. Shipping to Nigeria takes up to 16 days from the UK and the eastern United States.
Shipping vehicles to Nigeria is a relatively simple process. A clearance fee is paid on each vehicle, and thereafter one can register the vehicle for use. Given the high price of cars in Nigeria and the poor condition of the roads, it can be well worth importing a decent four-wheel drive from one's home country. Alternatively, buy one through the expat community once settled in.
