You bring in cars via Cotonou?

I completely agree with you....in addition some customs agents here have been advertising"Tincan customs duty papers for Cotonou vehicles".
This is a scam...even the customs agent who helped me get my car from Cotonou in 2014 when the land borders were still open, confirmed to me on phone & even in his thread here on Nairaland that - there is nothing like Tincan papers for Cotonou vehicles now.
You can search for his moniker on Nairaland - @saintjoel or JELAD Ltd (his business name) - he is a very sincere & trustworthy customs agent unlike many here on Nairaland.

Mr Olumide, thanks so much for the mention.

Vehicles (RORO OR CONTAINERISED) AND GENERAL GOODS LIKE HOUSEHOLD ITEMS ETC OR AGRIC COMMODITIES (IMPORT/EXPORT) - TINCAN


General goods plus AGRIC commodities ( import or export) - LAND BORDERS...

I appreciate your honesty and openness...but I'd like to ask,how do you reconcile buying an accidented vehicle (probably at a low cost), repairing the necessary things and reselling? For instance, you buy a 2007 Toyota camry sports worth between $5000 and $9000 as the case may be at a low price of say $1000 auction price, repair it a cost of say $3000 and then resell at #2.5million (about $7000) making a profit of say about $3000...and this is for an accidented vehicle....for me,i feel its good you are being open with the history of the vehicles but still selling them as though they were used vehicles with clean titles...I just hope I made some sense..

oya naw people see him, I was copying him for him to retrace his steps and turn a new leaf or jejely leave NL...... he was still arrogant and aggressive

And for him to put in his signature...."always remember where you come from".... I hope his parents weren't smugglers...if they were not smugglers or dubious people, it means he didn't remember where he came from, contrary to his signature!

Yes, these are the reasons I stopped selling cars, you have to be bad to make money cos of these scammers.I sold my last car on here 2014 I think, for N1,050,000.000, landing price was N900k, 2001 camry.after 8 months sitting.So it was a waste of time and investment,I will only do pre order if i venture back again,cos the cost of clean cars are unspeakable since these scammers sell dead cars as great cars for great price.

So bros, cos you bought a clean title car and yet Nigerians refused to buy it, rather they prefer the cheaper accidented ones, you pass the verdict that the fellow car dealers are your problem and reasons for not selling??

A very simple solution staring you in the face, yet u ignore it cos u want to follow the popular bandwagon route of blaming dealers for every thing, even a missing spare bolt.

All of them typing all these holy things here on this thread will still not buy your Clean title car, if you like supply VIN or more, they'll rather buy accidented or they'll price your Clean title car for same or even lower than accidented ones, yet u keep blaming the dealers, if you are serious for biz u won't put yourself in a situation where you'll have to tie down your money for 8 months for a meagre 150k profit.

Do the maths!!

No matter what you do, Nigerians will still price the car anyhow and beside a car was once a skeleton before it became real, weda you buy clean title or savage, it's just a mechanism. So anyone ye like buy, na human like us make am, so if you like buy, no be God create car

Lol. predictable . It’s the accused and guilty sellers that are here defending presenting accidented cars as clean title and accident free.

If only Nairaland will enforce the posting of VIN with every advert.

Only confident sellers post VIN and auction pictures of their vehicles.

THEY WILL NOT! If they do, it is bad business for them and Nairaland is business oriented. BB Naija is a perfect example.

Most of these Nigerian car dealers are criminals. I bought one "accidented" Toyota Rav 4 through one Olu, a "car dealer" based in Abeokuta,for my wife and I have been regretting my decision ever since.I have spent a lot on that car since I bought it; yet it is still not okay. It
is either radiator issue today or gear problem tomorrow. I was swindled by this guy. He repackaged the car for me and I paid dearly for my "stupidity'. I trusted him blindly but my only consolation is that I know he won't have any peace until he addresses that car issue. He has chosen a demon for a shoddy deal- he will forever regret that!
