Shipping Cars To Malawi From The UK

We offer an efficient and very competitive rates for car shipping to Malawi. We can offer shipping of cars by:

  • RoRo – Roll on Roll Off Car Shipping:

Shipping specifically designed to carry cars under deck and are not exposed to any external. Cars are secured and lashed to prevent any movement during transit.

  • 20 FT or 40FT Containerised Car Shipping:

Cars are loaded and secured in the container to prevent any movement during transit. Containers are only to carry your car and are opened at destination.

On our Roro (roll on, roll off) service for cars and 4 x 4s / SUVs going to Malawi, we can offer shipment to the two nearest ports which are Maputo in Mozambique, and Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania. We do not offer inland haulage from the port to Malawi so you will either need to collect your vehicle from the chosen port, or you will have to arrange the collection and transportation to Malawi independently.  We have  a very popular East African service running twice monthly shipments from Tilbury to Mombasa and Dar-es-Salaam. Transit time is between 21-23 days subject to schedule and port preference.  There is also a monthly sailing from Southampton to Maputo in Mozambique, transit is approx 18 days.

If you would prefer to ship your vehicle in a container, then based on loading one car into a 20ft container or two into a 40ft container, we can get you rates  either to Beira  or Dar-es-Salaam, or a through rate to Malawi, subject to schedule being available. Please just let us know what your preferences are so we can work with you to provide you with the best shipping solution.  If you are planning on shipping in  a container please be aware that you may load the car going into the container with personal effects, so long as the driving function is not inhibited, but you may not load the space around the vehicle inside the container due to cargo quality restrictions.

Please feel free to get in touch with us and ask about rates and shipment options for you. We need to know the make and model of your vehicle in order to quote. Please ensure rules and regulations are checked with relevant authorities prior to arranging shipment as we don’t get involved with this, it is the Shipper’s responsibility to ensure that cargo is compliant for shipment to chosen destination. Advice may be gained from clearing agents in Malawi or the Malawian Embassy in London may be able to help or refer you as suitable.
