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.

Satisfied Customers

“Hello!As part of our "Deal" we ended up using the dealers transport company. HOWEVER, we still have not seen the car. No one seems to know when it's arriving either. It's been fifteen days now. Trust me, next time we WILL use you guys!”

“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.”

“Hey Guys! Thanks for taking such good care of my wife's car. You have a great thing going there. I will use you guys again when I move my cars!! Take care and keep up the good work!”

“I gave a broker a full month to find me a carrier before I found Joe on my own. Just in time, as I had 5 days left for the transport. My car arrived in Wisconsin in good condition and on time. Joe brought me peace of mind and made a potentially nightmarish process surprisingly simple. I can’t thank you enough for being so reliable and trustworthy. Since then, I’ve recommended A1 to a couple of acquaintances, and they were all impressed with the service. They all found Joe a pleasure to talk to and the drivers prompt and professional.”

“Thank you Joe and the A1 Auto Transport team! It was a satisfying, honest and professional experience. The car was picked up on time and delivered to South Carolina as promised. They didn’t charge extra either. Joe made sure I was informed throughout the transport and explained the entire process, so I knew what to expect. The driver brought the car to my home, encouraged me to inspect it, and asked for payment only after. He called a day before to let me know he’d arrive, and also a couple hours earlier, so I’d be prepared. I had no problem with the drop off location, since it was in front of my home. I didn’t have to pay a deposit until the truck actually picked up my car. I was also informed of it beforehand. I’ve heard stories of companies asking for a deposit before picking your car, so they may leave with your money without ever showing up. Not the case with A1. I received another call from Joe after receiving my car to ask if I was satisfied with the service. Yes, yes and yes!! Thank you Joe for an awesome delivery!”
