*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.

It is also important to take into account the weather conditions of the country. Malaysia has a climate that can best be described as tropical, yet it is not characterized by extreme heat. While humidity is fairly common, the nights are usually cool. The rainy season generally runs from November to February, while August is the wettest month on the west coast. Since chances are high that your car will be shipped to the west coast, it would be best to avoid transporting your vehicle in August.

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

  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.

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.

What Are My Options?

A1 offers a variety of overseas shipping services and features. As for our methods of international transport, we have four amazing solutions. However, some of these options may not be available to you. The transport methods you’re able to take advantage of will depend on the type of heavy equipment or oversized cargo you are shipping to Malawi.

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.

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!
