- Acquiring a Vehicle
Our recommendation is that you purchase a vehicle from a reputable dealer in Ghana. Most will find that the advantages of purchasing a vehicle locally outweigh the advantages or attempting to personally import a vehicle. Personally imported vehicles have the disadvantage of uncertain customs fees, uncertain timing of shipping and customs release, verhicles that may not be customized for this climate or road condistions as ell as parts availability and maintenatnce issues. Vehicles purchased from reputable dealers have the advantage of warranties, factory customization for this climate and road conditions, solid maintenance shopts and superior parts availability.
