Our Services

Simba Shipping can assist you if you have any wheeled (rolling) machinery that you’d like to ship to Zimbabwe.  We offer a quick, reliable service with a speedy 18 day transit from Sheerness to Walvis Bay in Namibia, which is the port of choice for the majority our customers based in Zimbabwe.

Of course, if you’d like to use a different destination port we can arrange that for you as well. Just let us know when you make your enquiry. We do not offer inland haulage to Zimbabwe for machinery, however, so this must be arranged independently. If you’d like to ship your machinery in a container to Zimbabwe, subject to dimensions, we will be able to arrange that for you as well.

To obtain a quote to ship your wheeled machinery, please feel free to contact us with the dimensions of the unit, and the weight, and we will get back to you as quickly as we can with a quote and the latest shipment information.   If you have a specific port in mind that you’d rather ship from then, if you let us know, we can look into this for you and see if there are any options available for you  to do so. Our customers’ satisfaction is of utmost importance to us, so we will do our best for you.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns, we will be glad to assist you where we can and help you contact the right people if we cannot.

We also offer marine insurance for those who may require this.
