Moving to Indonesia

When moving to Indonesia, you might consider taking your belongings with you. Transpack offers various transport possibilities to get your goods to your new house in Indonesia, such as air freight, sea freight and groupage services.

The costs of moving to Indonesia

The costs for sea freight and groupage services to Indonesia are relatively low compared to other countries. The container price for shipping to the country is low, making a private container a good option. By shipping your items together with those of others at the same time (groupage), you share these low costs and the move becomes even more advantageous. Air freight on the other hand is expensive, so it is only recommended to use it for small shipments that you need at very short notice. Please note that the prices can be a lot higher per island, not every location is as easy to reach.

How long are my possessions on their way to Indonesia?

The average duration of your move by air freight is 2 to 3 weeks. For sea freight this is different because of the enormous distances within the country. However, in general you can assume that the container will take 5 to 7 weeks to reach the port of destination. This does not include the time at customs and any road transport afterwards. A Transpack employee can give you a better idea of the transit times to specific destinations in the country. Groupage transport takes 10 to 12 weeks on average because the container leaves as soon as it is full, so your goods can remain in the warehouse for a while before departure.
