Ghana is one of the countries in the West Africa continent. So, shipping to Ghana means shipping to a West Africa region. Keep in mind, however, that every country in the western region of Africa, including Ghana, has its own car import regulations and customs requirements. Contact AFL for further clarifications about shipping cars to Ghana.
The size and weight of your vehicle, domestic customs fees, the distance the cargo traveled in the US, insurance coverage (if applicable), the international shipment option chosen, and the distance from the US border point to the destination port in Ghana are some factors that influence the final price of shipping a car from USA to Ghana.
Most factors that apply to car exportation to Ghana from the United States, such as the weight of the vehicle and shipping method, also apply to car shipping to Ghana from Canada. For more details, including the cost of shipping a car from Canada to Ghana, contact AFL.
AFL can help you ship to any receiving port in Ghana, as long as the port receives automobile shipping. But keep in mind that your choice of port sometimes determines your final shipping costs. For instance, smaller receiving ports in Ghana may be more expensive for delivery. Contact us at AFL to discuss your needs and find out which receiving port would best meet your needs.
This is dependent on the types of cargo that a receiving port in Ghana accepts. You’ll be able to forward auto shipments to a receiving port in Ghana if the port accepts both cars and auto equipment cargo. For more detail, please contact AFL.
Before shipping a car from USA to Ghana, you'll need to submit the Title of Sale and/or BOS for the car to a shipping company for booking and to get a Dock receipt. The next item on the checklist is to transport the vehicle to the port of loading and pay for the domestic shipping. Then you have to process CTN for import clearance. Afterward, you may be asked to make changes to the paperwork you submitted for US customs approval. With all paperwork verified and payment made, you’ll get documents such as telex release for customs clearance in Ghana
You don’t necessarily have to insulate your car when shipping a car from USA to Ghana using the container shipment option as shipping containers come with insulation.
