Ship Your Car To Or From Ta Khmau, Cambodia
Ta Khmau is the capital as well as the biggest city in the Province of Kandal that is located in the central region of Cambodia. The city is approximate 7 miles away from the Phnom Penh. If you are moving to Cambodia and intend staying in Ta Khmau, you might need to consider bringing over your own vehicle for traversing the city with ease. As there is no indigenous auto industry in Cambodia, imported vehicles cost a lot. Thus, it is cheaper to import the vehicle from USA.

Documents and taxation paperwork needed
Now, when it comes to Cambodian vehicle imports, the taxes are really high. This is mainly due to the fact that the value of the vehicle is calculated based on the chart which uses the engine displacement as well as the actual year of the vehicle in order to determine the overall tax. This is something which is going to increase the amount that you have to pay substantially. The costs would usually stay between $1,600 and $3,400 and the applicable duties and taxes. Furthermore, there are quite a lot of documents that are required to be submitted to Cambodian Customs Department that you want to take care of. Some of them include:
- Certificate of registration
- Bill of Lading
- Ownership proof
- Valid car insurance
- Title deed of the vehicle
- Invoice of purchase
Additionally, you might need to get the latest information on the current laws and regulations dealing with import of foreign make vehicles into Cambodia. Contact the Embassy of Cambodia to get the updates.
Most of the cars which are shipped from the USA to Cambodia are shipped within a sealed container. This is rather common when it comes to international shipping. Roll-on, roll-off is also an option. These are two preferred shipping methods when it comes to international shipping. People prefer container shipping and RORO shipping, so let’s have a look.
- Container shipping: This is the more expensive option but it’s also the one which provides you with quite a lot of convenience. The reason for this is because your car will be enclosed in a sealed container and this is going to protect it from the elements and the debris of the travel. Furthermore, you will be capable of putting in as much personal items with the vehicle, as you want to.
- Roll-On/Roll-Off shipping: It is the most common and preferred option. The reason for this is because it’s cheaper. You only pay for the parking space that your vehicle occupies on the ship’s deck. Due to fire hazard, air conditioning gas has to be removed. Additionally your car has to be completely empty with only 1/4th tank of fuel. As theft and pilferage is a constant worry, you cannot put any personal items in the vehicle.
