Ship Car To Jakarta

🇮🇩 Indonesia, (ID)

Ship Car To Jakarta
🇮🇩 Indonesia, (ID)

Jakarta is the capital of the Republic of Indonesia. It's the largest city in the country and the official name is Special Capital Region of Jakarta. It is located on the island of Java and the city is the cultural, economic and political capital of the country.

You can import your vehicle to Jakarta, but there are some restrictions that you will need to abide by. Used cars are banned from being imported with the exception of those who have diplomatic business in Indonesia. New cars are allowed but, there is a government levy of 300% duty on the value of the vehicle. While this is very expensive, you will need to determine if paying this much is worth shipping your car over.

Documents to Import a New Vehicle.

With plenty of documentation to verify and validate before the import is considered legal by Indonesian Customs department. It is important to ensure that you have all documents in order. These include:

  • Your passport and your spouse’s passport valid for twelve months.
  • Original work permit.
  • Original residence permit for both you and your spouse and it must be valid for one year.
  • Customs application.
  • Bank Guarantee.
  • Letter of Authorization to the destination agent.
  • Vaccination record, if required.
  • Inventory of the container(if applicable).

Regulations at Customs.

There are plenty of Indonesian regulations that have to be adhered to when you are shipping a vehicle there. It is important to follow all regulations including:

  • You must be in the country in order to clear.
  • All shipments are inspected 100% of the time.
  • In order to be duty free, a citizen from Indonesia must have lived abroad for at least three years and have had the vehicle in his/her possession for a minimum of two years and continues to use the vehicle while in Indonesia.
  • For expatriates, the household goods must be in your possession for at least twelve months and be for your use on a private basis while in Indonesia and not to sell.
  • Only one shipment of household goods is allowed duty-free; by air or by sea.
  • Shipments must arrive within the three month time allowance issued on the KITAS Cards. Only place your name on all shipping boxes to avoid delays.

It normally takes seven to ten working days to clear a shipment in customs. This will, of course, be based on whether or not all documentation is correct. You will then need to pay all duties owed and then allow 3-4 days for cashier to clear payment before you can take your possessions. It takes 2-4 weeks to obtain a work and resident permit with a one year visa issued from the Indonesian Embassy or Consulate. Engine size of your vehicle cannot exceed 3,000 CC's. The cars that exceed this size are only allowed in by special conditions.

Shipping Methods to Consider

There are shipping methods to Jakarta which you can choose from to ship by air or sea. It is essential to do some research and think about it because the costs vary and it siwll directly affect the total shipping cost.

Air shipping allows you to ship your car and you can drive it in Indonesia in less time than by sea. If you ship your vehicle by sea, you will be able to choose the Roll On/ Roll Off method or the container shipping method. The container shipping method offers you two sizes, 20 or 40 foot container sizes, that you can select from based on the size of your vehicle. You will be able to ship other items with your vehicle in a container.

Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is another option. This option is more affordable and transports your vehicle on the deck of a ship. Your vehicle will need to be completely emptied in order to ship this method.

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!
