Motorcycle Shipping Rates
Since no two motorcycle deliveries are the same, we calculate motorbike shipping costs based on each individual consignment to make sure you ALWAYS receive a fair price.
Some of the contributing factors of the overall motorcycle shipping cost are the size of your vehicle, the distance you want to ship a motorcycle and how fast you need it delivered. However, the biggest impact on the motorbike shipping cost is the international motorcycle transport method you choose; Less Container Load, Full Container Load or Ro-Ro.
Groupage shipping, or LCL, is the most cost-effective motorbike shipping solution as the cost is calculated primarily on the size of your vehicle. Your motorbike is loaded into a shared shipping container alongside other vehicles and the cost is split between the owners of said vehicles. You will be charged for space your motorbike occupies within the container.
In contrast, shipping a motorcycle using Full Container Load may seem expensive, but it is sometimes worth the price if you are shipping personal goods or household furniture as well as your motorbike. You can ship them all in one convenient space and only pay one flat fee for the 20ft or 40ft shipping container.
Prepare Your Motorbike for International Shipping
Due to laws and regulations regarding importing a motorcycle, there are a few steps of preparation that you must perform before your motorbike is fit for shipping.
- Your motorbike must be clean of all dirt, including cleaning wheels and tires of any soil
- Only 1/4 of a tank or petrol or diesel is permitted at the point of shipment
- You need to ensure the battery is in full working order
- Check tire pressure and fluid levels before shipping
- Remove all loose items and accessories from your motorcycle.
It is also advised that you take full note of any current damages to your motorbike, including scratches, dents and paint markings, and take photos of the condition of your motorcycle to ensure it is removed in the same condition.
