Export a vehicle to Papua New Guinea with international shipping methods, essentially RO/RO or container shipping are the most pertinent. When traveling to Papua for an extended length of time, or moving there permanently, having a personal vehicle for travel will be of great assistance. However, in Indonesia car importation is frowned upon unless a person is there for an extended diplomatic mission and while it can be done, it will be rather difficult. All laws on importation must be addressed and professional assistance will be necessary.

Information in Regards to Papua New Guinea Local Travel

Papua New Guinea consists largely of the western half of the island of New Guinea. It is a province of Indonesia and can be difficult to travel to if large possessions are needing to be shipped, such as a vehicle. Otherwise, arriving by plane or boat isn't a concern. 

Concerns with Shipping a Personal Vehicle

There are several concerns with transporting a personal vehicle to the island of New Guinea. You will want to thoroughly consider whether having a vehicle shipped there is of importance to you. Here are some of the major concerns:

  • Indonesia doesn't want their travelers to import a vehicle unless strict guidelines are met.
  • The tropical weather in Papua can wear on a car more quickly than here in the U.S.
  • The humidity, strong winds, and extreme weather make maintaining a vehicle's health more difficult. It also makes the island's roadways more prone to deterioration.

Reasons to Ship a Vehicle to Papua New Guinea

Considering there are various reasons to refrain from transporting your vehicle to Papua, there are also some verifiable reasons why having your own vehicle would be beneficial.

  • Having your own vehicle allows you to travel more rapidly, usually reaching your destination quicker.
  • Purchasing a vehicle in Indonesia can be more costly than it is in the U.S., due to the fees associated with the region.
  • Public transportation is accessible but not nearlyas reliable as having your own vehicle.
  • You will have the freedom of traveling immediately to wherever you may need or want to go.
  • You can avoid currency issues and language barriers that come with public transit.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Papua New Guinea

  • Purchase invoice
  • Bill of lading
  • Passport
  • Work or residence permit
  • Packing list
  • Value declaration from customs
  • Certificate of origin
  • Import permit

Shipping Methods: RO/RO and Container Shipping

Seeing as Papua is a part of the island of New Guinea, there are many ports available. RO/RO shipping and container shipping are the most frequently used methods of shipping internationally. There is air shipping, but it is very expensive and nearly impractical.

RO/RO shipping is a roll on, roll off method. The vehicle rolls right onto the ship and right off of the ship. The vehicle must remain empty to be shipped.

Container shipping is a little more costly than RO/RO but it allows you to fill your vehicle with belongings. Your vehicle will be put into a container on the ship. The container is large enough to fit more belongings outside of the vehicle. When traveling to Papua with others, the container can be split. Another person can use the same container for belongings and you can have them split the costs of shipping.

Choosing an Overseas Shipping Method through A1 Auto Transport

When you describe your equipment to our shipping specialists over the phone, we will inform you of your options and what we feel is best for your cargo’s travels to Papua New Guinea. Of course, that’s after you give us a little information regarding the kind of cargo you desire to have delivered. To learn more about our transport services before you call in, continue to read below.

  • Lift On/Lift Off Transport- A crane will safely lift your heavy equipment onto and off of the water vessel dedicated to this type of shipping. This open air service is available to anyone with crated equipment, construction materials, or inoperable vehicles.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Transport- Unfortunately, not all sea ports except cargo shipped through this method of transport, it is the most popular and inexpensive option. With this method, ground transport may also be necessary to complete the delivery. RoRo shipping is only available to those with operable equipment and vehicles.
  • Container Shipping- As the priciest of all the shipping options, this method offers the most safety as long as your heavy cargo can fit snugly into a 40ft shipping container. This enclosed service is only available to those shipping equipment that can fit inside the container comfortably.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- This open air service secures your cargo to a metal frame before it is placed on the ship for its transport to Papua New Guinea. If poor weather is in the forecast, we may shrink wrap your cargo.

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!
