Documents Needed to Ship Domestic
When a individual is moving From Jakarta to Surabaya or Bali can often need several documents before the shipment can be sent. This will involve pre-shipment organisation from the shipper and the vendor. Relocation services in Indonesia are often highly reliable and have a good Standard Operating Procedure. The companies will come and chat to the customer and organise the shipment for 90% of the duration. The customer will need to complete the other 10% by ensuring all the documents are correct, informative (if any items are dangerous, fragile, obscure or expensive) to make sure that they are handled correctly and also reliable. Companies that may do shipments like this would be Allied Pickford’s or IMS. This can be seen as an extensive process but is thorough.
Documents needed to move in Indonesia;
- A packing list involves the information about the goods and items being shipped. This includes;

Proof of VISA/KITAS/Passport
- If any foreigner is travelling around Indonesia, they should be carrying proof of living status. The Indonesian police have been known to select and fine tourists for not carrying proof of identity. This is a police policy and should be followed as it will reduce chances of being held or fined.
Once the packing list is created, a company can create an order. This will be up to the vendor to select a price and an appropriate time. When moving around Indonesia it is suggested to avoid peak times of the day, which in Jakarta and wider Indonesia is 9-11am and then in the afternoon which would be 4pm-7pm. This is due to extremely bad traffic and can cause more risk of accident.
