Car Shipping Guide: Car Shipping from USA to Vietnam
Used motor vehicles (including passenger cars, cargo trucks, pickup trucks, and specialized cars) may be imported into Vietnam if they have not been used for more than 5 years from the year of manufacture, and are being imported by the original owner. Vehicles must have been registered in the owner’s country for at least six months prior to importing to Vietnam and have a minimum mileage of 10,000 km.
You may also import a motorcycle into Vietnam, if the engine is 175cc or larger. However, import duties on motorcycles can be very high, sometimes more than 100% of the motorcycle’s value.

How do costs vary based on the method of shipping to Vietnam?
Roll-On/Roll-Off – Your vehicle will be driven onto a spacious loading area on the delivery vessel, like a parking structure, and secured for shipping. This is our most economical shipping alternative, since only added charges are customs clearance and port expenses.
Shared Container Service – Our recommended option! Your vehicle is securely loaded into a 40ft enclosed container, along with various vehicles that will share the additional charges for container transportation. (Additional charges include: terminal handling, trucking and unloading fees, as well as customs clearance expenses)
All vehicles are loaded and stacked using our industry-leading R-RAK steel loading system into the shipping container. Although you’ll enjoy the added security of a fully enclosed container with no exposure to the elements, the container must reach capacity before shipping out so you might experience a longer wait time before your vehicle ships out to Vietnam.
Full Container Load – Just like our shared container service, you’ll have the added advantage of a fully enclosed shipping container that will contain solely your vehicle. Since there’s no wait for the container to reach capacity, you’ll enjoy a shorter wait before the vehicle ships out. However, added terminal handling expenses won’t be shared with other vehicle owners.
Upon receiving your vehicle, we’ll photograph and record the vehicle’s condition and loading process into our guaranteed condition report. All vehicles are loaded utilizing our cutting edge steel loading framework that doesn’t rely on outdated wooded ramps and nails, which can damage your vehicle.
Once your vehicle is loaded into its own shipping container, it is locked and secured for transport so that it can’t be accessed before reaching its destination in Vietnam. Since the car will be fully enclosed in a secure container, we invite our customers to transport additional items inside the vehicle. However, please make sure everything is packed securely, as we won’t be responsible for any damages.
After arrival in Vietnam, our shipping agents will access the container, record the vehicle’s condition and photograph the unloading process. In comparison to our Roll-On/Roll-Off Service, enclosed container transport to Vietnam is safer, as well as quicker thanks to regular departures every week.
