Ship Car To Ho Chi Minh City

🇻🇳 Vietnam, (VN)

Ship Car To Ho Chi Minh City
🇻🇳 Vietnam, (VN)

Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s largest city and the larger Metropolitan area consists of this city and other towns, with over 10 million people inhabiting the region. It is located about 1000 miles from Hanoi and is on the south eastern Vietnam.

If you have moved here or plan on relocating here from USA, you might need to have your personal vehicle to bypass the currency and language barriers apart from being independent. Thus, plan on importing your vehicle along with your other household goods, if you are moving permanently or just get your vehicle here even if you are here for a shorter duration.

With proper law and regulations in place, shipping your car to Ho Chi Minh City isn’t as difficult as you might be thinking. However, it certainly helps to have an informative and knowledgeable auto shipping company by your side. That is why A1 Auto Transport service steps in to assist you through the different procedures and permits. There are plenty of documents to submit, customs duties to clear and logistics to look after.

Specific motor vehicle laws and requirements

When you import your vehicle to Ho Chi Minh City, you need to ensure that the vehicle has been registered in your name for 6 months (minimum) and has driven over 10,000 km before it can be shipped. You need to ensure that the vehicle is 5 years or less while you need to consider that there is nearly 100% duty on all imported vehicles. Only left hand drive is allowed within the country.

One of the key aspects that deserve mention is that the vehicle can only be imported if you are the original owner and if the vehicle has changed ownership or you bought a used vehicle, it cannot be imported to Vietnam. Only diplomats are eligible to import the vehicles duty-free. For a faster delivery and import, start the process before you move from USA.

Documents and paperwork to submit

To verify the ownership and adhere to the requirements, there is plenty of documentation that has to be submitted. This includes:

  • Driving license/passport.
  • Bill of sale with all the details.
  • Title deed and registration.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Ocean Bill of Lading.
  • Import permits.

Freight shipment options

The total cost of importing the vehicle depends upon a variety of factors like the size, weight, age, make and model of the vehicle and the method of shipment that you select. Thus, consider your budget and then select the mode of shipment. This includes:

RORO: This is the cheapest way to ship as you are allowed to ship only an empty vehicle. Only car jack, floor mats, spare keys and an extra tire are allowed within the vehicle, rest of it has to be emptied. You are required to remove the air conditioning gas, leave a quarter tank of fuel and get the vehicle steam cleaned before shipping from USA. The vehicle is secured on the deck after it is driven up the ramps and harnessed on the deck. It is good if you are on a budget or only have a standard vehicle to ship as it is exposed to the ravages of the weather.

Enclosed container shipping: This is another common but more expensive to hip your vehicle. The car is put within a 20 feet or 40 feet container and closed and sealed. You have the option of putting your household goods alongside in the remaining space. This option offers higher security and protection as everything is closed inside.

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!
