It’s important to understand the cultural and legal differences when traveling outside the U.S., but especially if you’ll be driving outside the country. In addition to standard road safety, international motorcycle riding means you need to be familiar with the traffic laws and street signs, many of which are different from what you may be familiar with.

International Motorcycle Shipping Options
- RORO (Roll on, roll off) – Roll on, roll off service is a popular method for shipping any type of vehicle that involves travel by ship. Essentially, your motorcycle is driven onto the shipping boat, secured internally with a built-in mechanism or using tie downs and skids.
- Crated – Crated motorcycle shipping is a secure and affordable way to transport a bike internationally. The way it works is that your bike is fastened tightly inside a crate, enclosed securely, and then placed on a pallet before transport. (This can also be called palletized motorcycle shipping).
- Container – Containerized motorcycle transport is a cost-effective way to ship multiple bikes at once. Container shipping may be done with the use of crating, or it can mean securing the motorcycle inside a container by using straps and tie downs to make sure it stays put throughout the course of delivery.
- Door to door – Even for international transport, having a motorcycle shipped right to your door is an option. Naturally, it will cost more than if you picked it up at a local terminal or port, but it’s the ultimate in convenience for long distance vehicle transport. Door-to-door motorcycle shipping is ideal for delivery of rare, high-end or classic bikes.
- Port to port – A more affordable overseas shipping option than door-to-door is the port to port delivery option. Shipping a motorcycle from one port to another requires that you to pick up your bike at the destination point, which can be a shipping port or a delivery terminal.
