Ship car to Bali: Terminology and Rates

Before deciding to ship car to Bali, it’s helpful to understand the shipping terminology and rates involved. Transporting rates depend on supply and demand. Some busy ports and rarely used routes may have sky high prices compared to others. Rates may vary according to season and inflate along with oil prices.

Who you Have to Pay for Your Transport

To ship car to Bali, you will have to pay:

  • The auto transport company shipping your vehicle;
  • The ocean rates, paid directly to your shipping line;
  • The loading / unloading ports’ clearing and handling costs. These fees are paid to freight forwarders, to port authorities and to the shipping line as well.

Your auto transporter may include these taxes into their rates, so you’ll make a single payment to the company that will afterwards pay every other institution.

A container’s price is standard throughout the world. The price you pay is influenced by all the necessary operations to ship car to Bali. The closer you can bring your vehicle to the container, the cheaper its transport will be.

Car Transport Rates

Some companies may ask for specifications, like the vehicle’s age, its type, modifications, etc. before giving you a price. However, all this info is irrelevant and should not be discussed at all. Most likely, it will be used to increase the price of your shipment.

To determine transport costs, only the following information is necessary:

  • Departure and destination ports;
  • Oil price;
  • Season;
  • Vehicle weight and size.

Transporting Cost Practicalities

Transport costs are normally quoted and calculated in United States Dollars. Import and destination charges gathered through the destination port are your responsibility, regardless of the initial quote. Remember, you may have to pay other costs when importing a vehicle for travel purposes. This is known as a temporary import for which different papers and procedures are necessary. When overlanding, do not pay any import duty.

Shipping Rates

Unlike airlines, you cannot use a search site to find transport companies, add data like departure and destination port, and date, then receive a list of transport companies and rates. To find an auto transport company to ship car to Bali, you must do it manually. You may be able to find a list timetable on certain auto transport’s contact pages where you can ask for an estimate.


Some freight forwarders and auto transport companies use unique terminology to give you their estimates. To compare companies, it’s necessary to get a breakdown of the quote to remove unneeded costs like container cleaning, stuffing charges, field supervision, etc.

Transport costs can belong to one of these categories:

  1. Departure port’s fees,
  2. Freight costs for the container’s transport,
  3. Destination port’s fees.

Common Transport Jargon:

  • The large bulk is the ocean freight: this is the container’s actual price.
  • Currency Adjustment Factor (CAF) - permits mid journey modifications of exchange rates.
  • Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) - a charge in case of fluctuations in fuel price.
  • Busy ports’ congestion charges.
  • Fees for clearing customs - Fees required for preparing a temporary use import paper for the vehicle or to stamp your passage carnet.
  • Terminal Handling Charges (THC) - Charges at destination and departure ports.
  • Landing Bill fee known as BOL or B/L - an official document confirming you own the cargo and listing the delivery terms. This is the most important document you need to ship car to Bali. You cannot retrieve your vehicle without it.
  • Wharfage - a fee paid for the period during which your container passes or sits on the wharf.
  • Charges for Lashing - charges for lashing your vehicle to the floor of the container.
  • Surcharges for security, peak season, etc.

How to Minimize Vehicle Transport Costs

A normal vehicle fits perfectly in a 20 feet container. Using a 40 feet container and sharing it with another vehicle owner may cut down on transport costs.

At the departure port, try to find out the shipping line and handling fees of the destination port. It’s best if you can get this in writing in case the shipping company asks for more than necessary.

Choose your shipping date according to seasonal demands. This may save you a few hundred dollars. Also, be flexible with your transport route. You may save quite a bit by shipping to one part of the continent instead of the other.

Finally, call various shipping companies and compare prices, but don’t rely on just quotes when choosing someone to ship car to Bali. If a company doesn’t seem trustworthy, there are dozens more to choose from.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
