Car Search

On the other hand, you can engage us for the search by either putting a call across to 08109646816 or send an email to sales@gimporters.com with the specifications of the vehicle.

Approval & Confirmation

Upon completion of the search by you, copy and send the link to sales@gimporters.com or share it with us on 08109646816 via whatsApp. Then again, if you engage us for the search, we will send you the link for approval. Once you are okay with the vehicle in the link, we will respond with a quote in less than 72hours via email or WhatsApp.

Acceptance & Invoicing

Upon approval of the quote, we will raise an invoice for you to make the first installment to cover the cost of purchase and shipping of the car alongside our service charge.

Payment

Once payment is received, we will send you a receipt and a link to fill our vehicle pre-ordering form while we proceed to the buying stage, which entails engaging the seller over the phone to schedule a physical inspection by our seasoned vehicle inspection expert(s) in either the US or Germany to ascertain the vehicle’s condition.

Inspection

If the vehicle is certified to be okay by our vehicle inspection expert, we will proceed with the payment and pick up of the vehicle.

Thereafter, we’ll do the booking, prepare all necessary documents and drop off the car at the port for  shipping to Nigeria or other countries as long as the title is handy.

Shipping

In less than 72hours after the car is dropped off at the port, we will send you the tracking details so you can track your vehicle’s shipping progress online from any part of the world.

Clearing & Logistics

Few days before the vehicle berths at the Nigerian seaport or other nations, we will alert you to pay for the second installment to take care of the clearing and other logistics while we make all necessary arrangement for clearing to avoid ‘demurrage’- This is only applicable to Nigerian clients.

Delivery
