A gentleman asks about shipping a four-wheel-drive car to Namibia on the southwest coast of Africa. The most appealing way would be to ship it first to Cape Town and then drive it to Namibia. I remember a visit to Cape Town a number of years ago, where a former Tokyo resident told me of the elephants who, roaming through the countryside, occasionally paused to have a good back rub against a house, creating an earthquake-like rumble and shake. On the way, he could visit the legendary Cape of Good Hope and imagine sailing ships fighting storms as they struggled to round the southernmost tip of Africa. On his drive to Namibia he would pass near fabulous diamond mines but he would not see them since they are tightly secured. Certainly an interesting trip, but the efficient way is to ship it to Walvis Bay in Namibia. He can choose either a shipping agent who will handle the arrangements directly with the shipping company or an international moving company for door-to-door service. He has the necessary information to make a choice.
I asked why he was shipping a car to Namibia. It's for the elephants and black rhinos, he said. There is so much poaching and the rangers there need such vehicles to get around. Cheers for another person doing what he can to help where he sees a need.
Most people who ask about moving want to save money. If that isn't a problem, you simply call one of the major international movers and let them do everything for you. Of course, it is never that easy. You must inventory your goods, photograph valuable pieces, check your insurance policies and see that boxes are properly labeled. But other than that. . . .
