importing a vespa sidecar from indonesia

from Problem No 1 Shipping

Shipping to France would be:
Freight: US$ 135/cbm x 3.5 cbm =US$ 472.50
Document fee US$ 10/shipment =US$ 10.00
Trucking to Jakarta Port & Custom =US$ 95.00
Wooden crating box =US$ 100.00
Total shipping cost US$ 677.50. ( not doot to door service).

Figures still missing:
– other costs (bringing the vespa from the nearest port to your door’s home),
– french import duty, I assume at least 25% 🙁
– any import policy.

The person I’ve discussed with has been shipping some scooter to USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Portugal and Norway.
At the end it’s only money problem….

Problem No 2 insurance and papers
In order to drive or even insured these beautiful vehicles, we need some legal papers.
I’ve contact the FFVE (La Fédération Française des Véhicules d’Epoque):
Your vehicle must be older than 25 years in order to be elligible for a “carte grise de collection” We need also the vehicle indonesian papers (translate by an authorized person = 100$ or more), and the formular 846A given by the border authority. Add to this a free formular and
your reglement 45 euro
