Move Car Papua New Guinea

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

Best Car Shipping Company 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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
