Before you ship.
It is important to have the total cost of shipping quote with you before your vehicle is shipped out of the US port. One of our shipping agents will go over the details about the delivery in Brunei. If you intend shipping by RORO, it is important to get the car cleaned before shipping it to avoid delays due to quarantine. It is important to completely strip the car of all personal items, remove the air condition gas and keep a set of extra keys, tire and floor mats. Additionally, it is important to keep the documents in order for submission at the Brunei Customs.
It is important to let the U.S. Customs and Border Protection know about your intention to export the vehicle in advance. There are some forms and authorizations that are needed to be completed before you can ship. Although air shipping is the fastest and the safest method of transporting your vehicle, it isn’t a practical option for most people due to the extremely high price. That is why it is cost effective to ship by RORO (as mentioned above) or select the method of Container shipping. This allows you to put your vehicle along with other household or personal goods. It adds an extra level of security and provides for higher safety against pilferage when shipping your vehicle. Irrespective of the method of shipping that you select, knowing that a trusted and reputed shipping service is looking after the transportation is essential.
