Car Shipping Johor Bahru

Previously known as Iskandar Puteri, Johor Bahru is the capital of the Johor state in Malaysia. It is the part of the larger metro area of Iskandar. It was granted the status of a city in 1994 and has emerged as the second most populous city in the country. Whether you are moving here due to work or business and intend staying on a long term basis or even a few years, it helps to have your own vehicle.

When you are importing a vehicle in Johor Bahru, there are certain laws and regulations to meet. Like any other international shipment, there are documents to file and permits to receive before the vehicle can be transported to Malaysia. You’ll need to account in the weather as Malaysia is prone to hurricanes and cyclones in July-August, so it is best to work around that time or it can just delay the shipment. However, despite that it is easy to import goods all through the year.

Though it has positive relationship with USA and other Western countries, it is easy to navigate through the customs and regulations for a timely shipment. In the recent years, moving and trade with Malaysia has been strengthened as the country has benefitted with trade and travel enhancements.

Vehicle transportation methods

  • Container shipping: If you have personal goods to ship along with the car, this method works best. Safety checks and shipping procedures are maintained. It is more expensive than RORO method but it is better for expensive vehicles and vintage cars as they are secure and protected within 20 feet or 40 feet containers.
  • RORO: Roll on/Roll-off is a more cost effective method of shipping as the vehicle is driven on and off the ship. After it has been driven on the deck, it is secured along with other cars. That is one of the reasons that personal items are not allowed. However, it is affordable and the cheapest method of shipping on freight ships.

Upon Arrival In Malaysia

When your car arrives in Malaysia, you will need to pay the required levies and custom taxes before it is handed over to you. You will need to apply for registration with the local government authorities and pay for insurance. After three months of being in Johor Bahru, you will need to get your requite Malaysia Driver’s License or the International driving license. To get the latest updates on shipping vehicles or driving in Malaysia, please check with the U.S. Embassy in Malaysia.

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

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
