About RO/RO Transport Services and Its Costs.
RO/RO shipping is an open air service that requires some preparation of the vehicle before the transport can begin. Clean the inside and outside of the car, check the fluids, leave the fuel less than ¼ full, and remove any items that weren’t manufactured with the car. This assures the car’s safety and the safety of those managing its transport to Indonesia.
Call the Embassy of Indonesia to assure that there is a seaport that accepts this open air shipping method. If not, your transport company will find an alternative seaport to have the car shipped to and it is then transported by land to a terminal. Make sure you have a ride arranged. Ports and terminals won’t hold a vehicle for anyone. You must be present at the time of its arrival.
The shipping costs associated with the RO/RO method are hard to determine without specific information. The distance of travel, the vehicle’s weight, and other factors are all facts that will help determine what the transport company charges you. However, RO/RO shipping usually costs under $1,500.
