Ship Car To Chiang Mai
🇹🇭 Thailand, (TH)

Car Shipping Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is located in Thailand and is the capital of Chiang Mai Province. It lays close to the Ping River which is a major route taken for a variety of trade. It is one of the major cities in the country and in recent years, the city has grown economically while tourism has prospered.

If you want to import a vehicle to Thailand, You may be overwhelmed by all the documentation and paperwork needed in order to successfully import your vehicle. You need a reliable company that you can trust to assist you in every step. First, the process will begin with the paperwork needed. The transport company will need to know if you are importing on a temporary basis or a permanent basis. If you plan to keep your vehicle there for as little as six months or less, you may want to just apply for a temporary import. If you plan to keep it there for more than six months, you will need to go with the permanent process instead.

Importing Temporarily.

If you are importing on a temporary basis, you will not be expected to pay any customs duties, fees, or taxes. You will simply need to have a bank guarantee it for you or make a cash deposit that can be secured in the amount of everything. If the vehicle is exported out within the six month period, the importer will then return the deposit.

Documentation.

  • Five copies of a special good declaration.
  • Current vehicle registration.
  • Commercial invoice of purchase.
  • Contract stating re-export details.
  • Application completed requesting temporary import.
  • Driver license and passport of the owner of the vehicle.

Steps to import your vehicle.

  • Submit all the necessary documentation needed to the Customs at the Port of Entry (Submission can be made by you or by the transport agency that represents you)
  • Customs will check off on all documentation received and assign a declaration number to your import application. They will then determine the amount you will need to pay in taxes and duties.
  • The transport service will then issue Customs a cash deposit or guarantee from the bank that will cover all the fees estimated for import.
  • The transport service will then need to provide proof that all deposits have been made and everything has been checked out.
  • Customs will then inspect the vehicle as well as all belongings brought in with the imported vehicle if any. One copy of Goods Declaration will be issued to the importer, which will present the copy once the vehicle is exported.
Importing on a Permanent Basis.

If you are importing your vehicle to Thailand on a permanent basis, the procedure is a little different. The import permit from the Foreign Trade Department of the Ministry of Commerce will be required before your vehicle can be shipped. Additionally, there is a lot of paperwork that has to be completed which includes:

  • Import permit for a car that is used.
  • Import Good Declaration (make three copies of this).
  • Vehicle registration on used cars.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • House Certificate for used cars as well as an ID card.
  • Commercial invoice.
  • Passport.
  • Release order.
  • Insurance Invoice.

You are required to submit all the documentation listed above to the Customs at the Port of Entry. The Thai Customs will then check all the documentation and assign the vehicle import a declaration number and calculate all dues. It is essential that the importer pays the office all the total monies due. The shipper will then show the receipt where everything was paid to Customs and have the vehicle released. As you see, there is an extensive amount of paperwork required in order to transport. You need to hire a transport company that will handle the procedure for you. It's important to hire someone who has the knowledge needed to import vehicles to Thailand.

There are two different ways to ship a vehicle Roll On/ Roll Off method and the container shipping method. Both ways are acceptable but the Roll On/ Roll Off method is the most practical. The Roll On/ Roll Off method uses ramps to drive the vehicle onto the ship and the roll it off when the ship reaches Thailand. The vehicle will need to be completely empty except for floor mats, car jack, and a spare tire for this method. You can choose to ship several vehicles or a vehicle and your personal belongings in a container. You can even fill up your vehicle with your belongings inside the container.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
