Takeo is a province located in the country of Cambodia and it is seated in the southwest parts of the country.

Why A1 Auto Transport is the best option?
You would have to have thorough understanding of the regional laws as well as clearances and the versatile taxes that would apply to importing a vehicle, if you are to successfully ship or export a car into Takeo. The A-1 Auto Transport Company has more than 20 years of excellent shipping services for automobiles to different parts of the world which includes Cambodia as well as different countries in Southeast Asia.
Similar to other countries Cambodia also has some statutory limitations on the kinds of vehicles that could be imported in to the country and the import VAT that may apply. You should be alarmed that importing a car into Cambodia is indeed expensive.
The taxes on vehicular imports in Takeo, Cambodia are considerably higher which is due to the way the value of the car is actually calculated. The import tax is determined based on the engine displacement as well as the manufacturing year of the vehicle instead of basing it upon the cost of the vehicle as of the current moment. The taxes which result from these calculations are often ending up higher than the cost of the car itself.

Maintaining your car in Cambodia.
You would also have to account for the money you would have to spend provided that your car needs a part replacement. It is overly expensive in general to import cars in the country but it is also very expensive to maintain one if something actually goes wrong. The spare parts are rather hard to find if your vehicle is not among the commonly used brands and models; and at the same time the cost of gas is rather high as well. This is why scooters are more popular in the country of Cambodia.
There are shipping eligibility requirements that have to be met and you would also have to take care of the required documentations. Before shipping the car you would have to submit the documents at least 72 hours before the export to the US Customs. This is required in order to prevent any glitches that may occur.
Things to be consider before shipping
You should also check whether or not your vehicle is actually eligible for import to Battambang in Cambodia. For instance, a vehicle that has lien, you would require to have permission by the lien holder. You can refer to the Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations for further instructions. The documents that you would have to submit include:
- Driver’s License.
- Proof of ownership.
- Owner’s passport.
- The insurance policy of the vehicle subjected to the import.
The overall cost of the shipment is also going to be dependent on the shipping method that you prefer. You can choose between a Roll-on/Roll-off as well as container shipping options. You can contact us in order to make sure that all relevant documentation is completed or you can contact the Royal Embassy of Cambodia.
