I was just looking at Panasonic Indonesia's shitty range of overpriced shitty technology (around 2.7 million for a basic model with remote), and comparing with Panasonic Malaysia's range (500 MYR for a top-of-the-range DC motor model which goes down to 2.5 watts at low speed and has temperature sensor to reduce and increase speed according to perceived need, and complete with any size of down pipe that you need to fit your particular ceiling).

Malaysia:

Indonesian shit (NB Made in Malaysia!!!, they also export this crap to Vietnam)

Anyway, anyone know if it is possible to get the Malaysian model (F-M14HW) here by some means? If you went by ship how much is the tax, if I brought back say 20 units?

You're looking for HS-code 8414.51

https://www.dutycalculator.com should help you make a more detailed calculation, in below example I've assumed 10.000RM (20x500) with shipping and insurance at 550usd (I have not the faintest idea if that's realistic).

52.6 / 20 = 2.6jt per imported ceiling fan.

Not sure on the Asean free trade agreement though, could get a discount on the duty perhaps?

Thailand Panasonic only has 2 fans on offer!

I susect for whatever reason ceiling fan demand is bigger so the market is bigger.

That malaysian fan is 60% of yur quoted Indo price. In Thailand, Malaysian manufactured goods have less or no import duty.

My experience with importing stuff is that it is far from simple. You'll need an agent, an import license probably or at very least a business license.

Go ahead. If you need another hobby import 20!

Welll, I'm not sure if this falls under the advertisement rules but here goes:

But contact me via PM/email if you are serious about importing those 20 fans. If you have a business plan with it you wanna share, we can talk more besides just importing it for ya.

(I'm not an import agent)
