Moving to Malaysia from the US

Move Overseas to Malaysia

Malaysia is a destination for US retirees who want to get more value for their hard earned savings. The cost of living and the ease of gaining long term visas makes this Asian island a perfect home away from home.

There is a huge expat community to fall into and with most of the locals speaking English, it means not having to master the language, immediately anyway. Renting is cheap and buying is easy for non-nationals. Food is exciting and the culture vibrant. It's also home to some of the most amazing beaches in the world. The weather is a perfect 87* average year round with rain fall almost every day during the afternoon.

The only thing you might find hard to adjust to is the driving- it's quite fast, erratic and slightly dangerous.

If you are relocating or retiring to Malaysia and need a service provider to make the move easy and simple, Schumacher Cargo Logistics offers the best international shipping service to facilitate your move there.

If this is your decision and you are ready, please call us now for that initial conversation so that we can give you peace of mind around your move.

6 Interesting Details to Learn Before Your Move to Malaysia

  • The country is rich in culture and has lots of traditions. The five main races (Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Kadazan) make up most of the citizens of the country
  • Malaysia has a total of 878 islands, and it's really hard to pick a favorite.
  • Supper is a huge part of the Malaysian culture. Don't be surprised if you end up going to a restaurant at 11pm. Since it's more chilly in the evening, Malaysians like to sit at outdoor tables or get street food at night
  • Malaysia has 40,934 miles (65,877 km) of highway. This is more than Earth's circumference of 24,901 miles (40,075 km)
  • Malaysia is reported to have more than 1,000 species of plants that have medicinal properties that are used for treating ailments from headaches to malaria and cholera
  • Some buildings in Malaysia do not have a fourth floor. They are replaced by “3A” as the sound of four (sì) is similar to the sound of death in Chinese
