Selling a car in Mongolia

Post by gemaze »

Hello, we are two people wanting to drive from Europe to Mongolia and then on to China. Our idea was to sell the car before entering China and then traveling on via public transportation.
We were wondering if anybody knows about the possibility to sell a car in Mongolia. We've read a lot about the fact that in Kyrgyzstan it would be easy to sell your car. This is of course a possibility, but because of the high import taxes and the benefit of still having a car in Mongolia, we thought the latter might be a better option.

So, has anybody here ever done this or has any information on how and where to sell your car? What about the possibility to import, or taxes? Any address like Iron Horse Nomads in Kyrgyzstan would be extremely helpful!

Thank you!

Many hundreds of people have unloaded their car in Mongolia after the Mongol Rally. Their organization might be of use.

Hi! Thanks for your answer. I contacted them, but so far they couldn't help me.

Alternatively, do you know if there's the possibility to just leave your car there, leave the country for a few months and then come back for it?

In the end, we just rented a garage in Mongolia and crossed the border to China by train. Nobody asked anything about the car whatsoever, so basically you can just leave it in Mongolia and pick it up next time you enter without any bureaucracy whatsoever (no guarantee though, but for us this worked).

Gemaze,

So glad you updated this post, we have been searching for the same info as we will be leaving our car behind in Mongolia.
Did you have to pay a duty / tax to bring your vehicle in?

'The Adventurists' have a no car left behind policy and supposedly organise a cargo train to Lithuania if you don't want to drive back.

If you are reading this, and haven't read our article on self-driving in Mongolia yet, just leaving it behind became more expensive recently.
