RoRo Shipping to Tanzania

Overseas car shippingRoRo shipping is the most preferred and the most affordable way of shipping cars (saloons and 4×4’s), mini-buses, vans, tractors, trucks and agricultural equipment from the UK to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

How Are You Charged?

With RoRo, the vehicle is only charged for space they occupy on the vessel. These ships have ramps that enable the vehicle to be driven on or off (Hence the term RoRo – Roll on Roll off). RoRo vessels are often known as floating parkings.

Personal Effects

While we do not recommend loading personal effects with RoRo, this can be done at the shipper’s own risk and expense. Personal items are much safer when shipped via container shipping. If you plan on loading personal items into your car however, please let us know when you make the enquiry.

4 x 4 ‘s FROM £POA

Please contact us with the dimensions of other vehicle types such as trucks, tractors or any other type of cargo for a more accurate quotation for exporting your vehicle to Tanzania.

20 Ft or 40ft Container Shipping to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

Sea freight containersContainer shipping is a way to export your car by loading & lashing your car then shipping the vehicles either via a 20ft or 40ft container.

The container is then closed, sealed and lifted onto the ship. While this may be more expensive, container shipping offers a much safer way to ship cars to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania compared to RoRo shipping as it is only your vehicle in the container and it is opened at destination.

Additionally, by using container shipping, you can ship personal items as well in your container or within the car.

I shipped a car using auto Kenya complete services from having the car picked up to pre inspection and shipping. I was going to use the RoRo service but after a few days they said would I like to use a container at no extra cost. Very nice offer. All in all the service from the whole Auto Kenya team from start to finish was excellent. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Well done Auto Kenya.

AutoKenya have been my partners for the last five years. They are my only go to company whenever I need to ship anything from the UK. They always deliver what they promise in terms of lead time, cost and efficiency and always ensure that I am updated about the progress of each shipment. Their staff are polite and pleasant. They go out of their way to offer a hand over and beyond what is expected of them.Kudos Sudhir, Ann and Reginah. Keep up the good work!!

Sudhir from Auto Kenya was of great help during the entire transfer and import process from the UK to KE. We had a couple of smaller and larger hiccups caused by the Kenyan authorities, but Sudhir was always patient and went to great lengths to help me. If I ever import a car somewhere in East Africa again, it will be through Auto Kenya.

I have used Auto-Kenya for over 10 years now and they are the most efficient and professional shipping company that I have come across.In conjunction with Simba shipping, you get quality service, at the cheapest rate in the market. Every time I have a challenging shipment, they have never disappointed as they also tailor the consignment arranging for pick up, packing and delivery to Africa, Asia and North America.

I had a straight forward and pleasant experience dealing with Auto Kenya. I purchased a car from the UK and shipped it to Uganda remotely. Their staff were helpful during the entire process. It's quite rare to find a UK based company willing to follow up with a call to Ugandan based customer.They also helped organise a service to pick up the car from the dealership and deliver it to the port for shipping. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking to ship a car from the UK.
