*Prices and times are estimated. They can vary depending on the season and the type of vehicle.

*Save the ground transport cost by delivering the vehicle to the nearest port.

*Allow an additional 10 days to process the documents.

*Prices are for 1 car in a dedicated 20ft container. This is the safest and most reliable way to transport a vehicle internationally. Other items may be included in the container to help save you money when moving.

*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

When exporting a vehicle to Malaysia, certain requirements and specifications must be met in order for a successful transaction to occur. As is commonplace with shipments to any other country, there is paperwork to be filled out, documents to send in, and fees to be taken care of. For more information regarding the costs acquired by shipping a car overseas, be sure to thoroughly read this article on the matter.

The country's typical climate should be considered as well. The weather in Malaysia is tropical, yet it's not blistering hot like some other tropical countries. Despite the frequent occurrence of humidity, cool temperatures are typical at night. Typically, the wet season is from November to February, with the wettest month being August. Avoid shipping your automobile in August if at all possible, as there is a good possibility it will be going to the West Coast.

As always, it would be beneficial to gain knowledge regarding the weather patterns of the country to understand any shipping delays that may occur. Despite the heavy rainfall in August, it is feasible to travel and import goods year-round to Malaysia.

While Malaysia is still adjusting to opening its ports to foreign countries, it is easy to navigate through and have positive relations with such a cultured and rapidly growing country.

Malaysia is benefitting from a steady increase of tourism, so their customs and laws regarding moving and shipping into the country have strengthened and become more efficient in recent years.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Malaysia

Best Car Shipping Company Malaysia
  1. Registration from country of origin.
  2. Vehicle purchase invoice.
  3. Title.
  4. Passport and copy.
  5. Proof of ownership.
  6. Residence permit.
  7. Insurance policy from country or origin.
  8. Permission letter from shipper.

Visit the Malaysia Customs Page for more information regarding this matter. Be sure to reference this page to better understand any limitations and/or restrictions you may face upon moving or transporting goods such as automobiles to Malaysia.

Oddly enough, Malaysian banks are closed on Saturday afternoons and all day on Sundays. However, they are also closed all day on the first and third Saturday of each month.

Any external or non-permanent parts of your automobile should be removed prior to shipment, as they may cause problems during a long delivery process. Many companies will also ask you to completely clean out the inside of the vehicle; this is especially true if you choose to use a RoRo transport service (more on that soon).

Furthermore, be sure to steam-clean the inside of your vehicle prior to departure so that your vehicle will not be quarantined before being shipped. This will speed up the delivery process, as the shipping company you choose will not have to move your vehicle to a quarantine facility, a cleaning facility, and back to the shipping facility. Bypassing these lengthy procedures will ensure a faster delivery process, and provide a smaller chance of damage to your vehicle.

Be sure to remove all air-conditioning gases from your vehicle as well.

If you are unsure about the eligibility of your vehicle’s shipping status, refer to Title 19 of the U.S. Code Of Federal Regulations.

Automobile Transportation Methods To Malaysia

  • Roll On/Roll Off (Ro-Ro) Shipping: This is the most common method of transportation that the majority of customers choose to transport their vehicles. This is a method of sea shipping where vehicles are driven on and off carrier ships using their own wheels. Ro-Ro sea vessels are equipped with ramps that aid in the process of driving vehicles on and off the ship. Essentially, it is a method of shipping that is best for any item that has wheels, or can be safely placed on and off wheels. It is the most convenient and cost-effective way of getting your vehicle to Malaysia.
  • Container Car Shipping: This is a popular shipping method choice for those who want to send some of their personal items along with their cars to Malaysia. The vehicle is either collected at one’s home or is delivered to a depot. Depending on whichever price point is more desirable, customers can choose private containers, which usually run 20ft or 40ft in size, and use the leftover space to pack personal items in, or customers may choose to share containers with someone else’s vehicle. This is a slightly more expensive method, as more safety checkpoints and procedures must be met.
  • Car Transportation: This is a land-based and land-locked method of shipping, so it generally takes the greatest amount of time. Cars are insured and routinely inspected throughout the trip, but they must wait for a pending shipping date to Malaysia before they begin their journey.

Keep in mind, the vehicle must somehow be transported to a U.S. shipping port before it can begin preparations for shipment to another country like Malaysia. In certain cases, you may be allowed to drive your vehicle to a local port; this will help you cut back on any further expenses.

Auto Transport Malaysia

Upon Arrival In Malaysia

Once you arrive at your final destination, there are certain procedures that need to be taken care of regarding the safe arrival of your vehicle into the country.

  • Pay the appropriate customs duty as well as all taxes and fees associated with the shipment.
  • Have modifications applied and tested if necessary.
  • Apply for identification plate registration and approval with the Bangladeshi government.

Once you arrive, it would certainly be in your favor to acquire more information regarding driving rules and regulations in Malaysia.

  • Driving in Malaysia: You’ll want to know what the traffic and driving rules of Malaysia are as quickly as possible. After three months of staying in Malaysia, you will need to apply for an International Driver’s License. Malaysian cars drive on the left side of the road, similar to most European countries.
  • Malaysia Driver’s License: Information regarding how to obtain a valid driver’s license in Malaysia can be found here.

Any further questions and concerns you may have can be directed to the U.S. Embassy in Malaysia.

Our International Shipping Services

  • Container Transport- An enclosed transport service that offers the ultimate protection. Unfortunately, not all oversized and heavy equipment can fit into a 40ft shipping container. If you’re eligible to use this transport method, your cargo will be kept safe from inclement weather and all outside hazards.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- This is the most secure form of open air transport that we have to offer. Your cargo is fastened to a metal frame before it is placed atop the ship. If bad weather is a concern, your cargo might get wrapped with shrink wrap.
  • RoRo Shipping- The most affordable open air transport method available. Your equipment or vehicle must have the ability to drive onto and off of the shipping vessel using a ramp.
  • LoLo Shipping- An open air service that’s commonly used by those transporting crated equipment or inoperable vehicles overseas.
