Shipping/Exporting an auto to Cambodia, like many other countries, requires a good understanding of the local laws, customs clearances, and taxes that apply to importing a vehicle into the country. At A-1 Auto Transport we have more than 25 years of experience shipping/exporting vehicles of all types to locations around the world, including Cambodia and throughout Southeast Asia.
Like many other countries, Cambodia has limitations on what types of vehicles may be brought into the country, as well as import and value added taxes that apply. One thing that should be made clear about shipping a car to Cambodia: it is expensive.
Taxes on Cambodian vehicle 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. As many Americans have found out, the resulting taxes don’t always make sense, often totaling more than the value of the car.
*Smaller vehicles, scooters, mopeds and motorcycles can be less expensive to ship to Cambodia due to the lower engine displacement.

Car Maintenance & Vehicle Upkeep In Cambodia
Another consideration when relocating a car to Cambodia is what you’ll do if your vehicle needs a replacement part. Not only is it generally expensive to import a car to the country, but it can be difficult and expensive to maintain if something goes wrong. Spare parts are not easy to come by for vehicle models that are not widely popular and the cost of gas is also on the high end. For this reason, as well as those mentioned above, scooters are very popular in Cambodia.

Common Methods of Shipping Overseas with A1 Auto Transport
- The Lift On/Lift Off transport method (sometimes abbreviated as LoLo, LOLO, LO/LO or Lo/Lo) uses a crane to place your equipment onto the cargo ship. If your cargo is inoperable and needs picked up and set onto the ship, this is the route to go. Either the cargo ship or the dock has a crane mounted to move your equipment.
- The Roll On/Roll Off transport method (sometimes abbreviated as RORO or ro-ro) are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as, large trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars. Vehicles are driven on and off the ship using their own wheels and this typically results in the cost of transport being cheaper.
- The Flat Rack transport method is ideal for tall or awkward sized cargo. Flat rack containers are essentially regular shipping containers with collapsable walls. They have a very high loading rate and work well to transport boats, construction materials and industrial parts.
- Container shipping isn’t available unless your cargo can fit within the dimensions of a 40ft shipping container. While not always ideal for larger items, containers will keep your cargo together while also being protected from the elements
If none of these options suit your shipping needs, then please give one of our professionals a call to discuss alternative options or to point you in the right direction!
