Avoid Penalty Fees When Importing Your Car to Nigeria

By Odet Garcia Updated: 05/08/2022 Posted: 06/14/2019

Some of the most common penalty fees result from late payments or storage charges. These are charged by the auction clearing house, and are unknown by some clients. Hence, there are confusions and unexpected expenses that lead to budget overruns.

This needs to be considered when buying cars from dealer car auctions in the U.S.,  since auction lots have strict rules regarding this. Most auction lots give their clients 2 business days to pay for the car in order to avoid late payment fees. Also, 3-4 business days to remove the purchased car from their lot. 

The late payment fee is a one-time fee but storage carries a daily fee. You’ll want to avoid these fees at all cost, as it is wasted money. However, this is easier said than done. Especially if you’re buying a car from outside the U.S.

Our goal is to make all areas of your car purchase and shipping as easy and seamless as possible. That way you can feel safe that the car you imported into Nigeria remains at a fraction of the retail cost. You don’t want to lose money on late payment fees, storage fees, and shipping, right?!
