As with most countries, Cambodia has restrictions on what types of automobiles may be brought into the country. They also have import and value added taxes that apply.
Shipping a car to Cambodia can be expensive due to the taxes, regardless of the low shipping rates from the transporter.
The duties and taxes on Cambodian auto imports are really high, which is compounded by the way in which the value of the auto is calculated. Rather than the cost of the vehicle or its current worth, the value is based on a chart that uses engine displacement and the year of the auto to determine the import tax. You can call the Embassy of Cambodia to find out the latest tax rates for imports.
Two Main Shipping Methods to Consider.
Overseas shipping services normally offer their clients a collection of services and features to choose from. Then again, there isn’t much of a shipping selection that can really be utilized to send the vehicle. A large portion of the services or highlights go about as additional items. Dependent upon the experience and gear possessed by the transport company, they might offer one or two of the most basic vehicle shipping methods, making it possible to safely ship a car to Cambodia.
- Container Shipping - the container transport for delivery is desirable over those moving to permanently to the country. The car is secured inside of the walls of the holder, yet the vehicle and extra compartment space can be loaded with passable possessions. This system can likewise be imparted to someone else on the off chance that you don’t need the whole space for your own stuff
- RO/RO Shipping - this strategy for transport is the least expensive. In any case, it is a safe and solid system for transport. The vehicle will require some planning as it must be cleared out before it can take off on its journey.
