Average Cost to Ship a Motorcycle Overseas

It is easy to look online when you are looking for the average cost to ship a motorcycle overseas. Though you can get plenty of free quotes using online calculators, it is best to get a customized quote for your specific motorcycle and country you are shipping to.

Though you might get approximate quotes, but getting an accurate quote will require requisite information. Though most motorcycle shippers aren’t as reputed, at A1 Auto Transport service, we ship all vehicles including motorcycles worldwide. If you want to have a safe and hassle-free experience, it is important to discuss your requirements with us.  Though there are different methods available, it is recommended that you use coated or enclosed container shipping, so that the motorcycle is protected during transit.

After the booking date, it is best to prepare the motorcycle as per the requirements. You will need to clean the vehicle, remove the extra accessories and if needed, the side mirrors and handlebars. It is essential for inspecting the vehicle for damage and all scratches, dents and damage have to be documented. You will need to disable the alarm while making sure that the gas tank is only 1/4th full.

At A1 Auto Transport service, we have extensive experience in shipping motorcycles for auto shows, personal use, collectors, expatriates, and dealers. The price estimates include unloading and loading, insurance and transit costs. Export and import laws and taxes depend on the country that you are exporting you. When you are looking at the average cost to ship a motorcycle overseas you can expect to pay between $1000 to around $1,800 or $2,000. However, the prices are reduced if you create it and put it on transport carrier. If you are looking for more information about shipping motorcycles, you can contact us today and get competitive prices. However, to help you get a ballpark price, these are the factors that need to be considered:

  • Destination country: The prices vary depending upon the distance. Whether you want to ship your vehicle to a country close to USA or far away, we can get it done but the cost will be different.
  • Model of motorcycle: Varied styles of motorcycles require different packing and insurance. If it is a standard model, you may get the average price quote but if it is a high-end customized motorcycle, the price to ship it will be much higher.

RORO or container shipping: This is another option that directly affects the prices. If you have a vintage or rare motorcycle that needs to be transported, pick enclosed container shipping and protect your vehicle. Other than that if you have a common motorcycle, you will find open carrier shipping a more affordable option.

It is essential to stay updated on the legal and traffic regulations in the country to intend living in for a short or longer duration.  That is why it is best to hire the services of a professional transport service instead of trying to do it alone. Usually, the safest method is to place it in a crate or enclosed container before shipping, as that will protect it from harm during transit. Additionally, auto transport companies offer an insurance cover while the motorcycle is being transported.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
