Highly Professional shipping firm. Courteous Staff, Reliable and affordable. Shipped a very expensive car to MSA and was supported all the way. If you ever need to share a 40ft container at highly affordable rates, they are the best! Thanks Sudhir and Reginah!

Shipped a vehicle with Auto Kenya in Jan 23 and the service was exemplary. They kept me informed all the time and their nominated clearing agent in Mombasa was very swift and professional. I would certainly recommend Auto Kenya to anyone.

Very unhelpful customer service, blunt email responses, and not all questions are answered, meaning you have to send follow up emails. False advertising on the website, in the end it seems they do not do what they state on their website.

Shipping Methods and Transit Time

We provide efficient service with competitive rates. It takes up to 28 to 30 days to ship your car from the UK to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We are able to ship your car from a number of ports in the UK such as Tilbury Port, Immingham, Southampton and Sheerness Ports. We ship cars through:

RoRo 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
The above prices are indicative prices, and the shipping costs factor in ALL costs from the UK to Tanzania. 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.

20ft or 40ft Container or 40 FT Shared Shipping

Container shipping is a way to export your car by loading & lashing your car then shipping the vehicles either via a 20ft or 40ft or 40FT shared 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.
