A Message From Our CEO/Founder

Delays, poor customer service, no information on the status of my shipment, and even sadder is the loss of $25,000 on a car shipping from the USA to Nigeria. That was my first experience when l used a company to ship a car to Nigeria. I later found out this was the norm and set up ShipToNaija with the mission of changing this. We hope that we have been able to improve the service and do hope that you will give us a try with your shipping.
