I wish we had not shipped our car from Accra.
Let me explain to you:
We got an offer from an agent for 2000 USD. When we asked if it was the final offer he replied that it is a port-to port offer.
Without being professionals, we proceeded with this offer.
After loading, he said that we need to pay also in the Cape Town Port for clearance.
The local agent in Cape Town asks for 1950 USD to clear the container and also for handling charges.
We are totally upset and all our trip in on the air.
What is more, the Ghanaian company said that the ship departs on Monday the 6th but the ship is still in Tema and leaves on 14th of August.
You cannot imagine how we feel..
We only feel desperate..
Has anybody else prior experience? Since we have the Carnet, do we need to pay for clearance?
Does anybody have any clearance agent in Cape Town that is reliable and don't see travelers as ATM's?
Any advice or information is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
For any reason, don't apply for a quotation in BJH LOGISTICS LTD in GHANA.
They only offered poor information, hidden costs and totally unreliable service.
