Military Shipping Motorcycle to Germany

Military shipping motorcycle to Germany from the United States is increasingly easier. The following article explains all you need to know to prepare for it.

Airfreight vs. Ocean

There are 2 ways to ship a military motorcycle into Germany: with an airplane or a cargo boat. Your choice will depend on delivery time, budget and distance.

Generally, your motorcycle will arrive at its destination far quicker with airfreight, but the costs are much higher, and finding an airline willing to ship your vehicle can be difficult.

Cargo boats travel much slower, but are the cheapest way to ship a motorbike. If you are not pressed by time, it is best to choose a port and transport your bike by sea.

Germany Base Ports

Germany, like all other western countries in Europe has direct access to its ports, meaning you can directly import your US military motorcycle into it. The most frequently used port in Germany for motorcycle shipping is Antwerp. It offers competitive rates compared to all other ports on the continent, and ships sail from and towards it on a weekly basis.

Estimates for Shipping

Military shipping motorcycle to Germany can be as low as $1800 depending on the location of its US departure, the German port you use and its dimensions. This is an estimate for an ocean freight using a shared container. It does not include duties, destination fees or various taxes.

Documentation

Customs can be cleared at the motorcycle’s entry point. You will need to prepare to appropriate documentation beforehand. This will be used to get past US customs before being emailed to a handling agent overseas. Our associate will use these documents to get your motorcycle past German customs when it arrives at the port.

After the procedure is completed, we advise you keep the stamped importation documents, since you will need them to register your motor bike. If you plan on eventually returning to the US with your military motorcycle, they will prove useful then as well.

Converting Your Military Motorcycle

For updated and accurate information on conversions, visit your local embassy or customs office. For permanent military shipping motorcycle to Germany and to legally register and drive it, the following conversions are mandatory:

  1. Converting the motorcycle’s odometer from MPH to KPH;
  2. Conversions necessary to meet Germany’s emissions standards;
  3. Lighting and exhaust modifications.

Certain conversions may not apply to motorcycles manufactured more than 25 years ago.

Ways to Load and Carry your Motorcycle

There are 2 ways to load a military motorcycle for transportation:

  • By individually crating it;
  • By bracing and blocking it in a container.

The first option ensures higher safety, though it may cost more.

Preparations Prior to Shipping

To prepare for Military shipping motorcycle to Germany, first remove all heavy dirt from your bike, including deposits of soil on the tires or wheels. Afterwards, inspect and make a note of the damages. Look for dents, scratches and other visible signs of damage. Upon arrival, inspect your vehicle again to ensure it hasn’t sustained any damages during transportation.

If the military motorcycle is in good condition, check its battery, fluids and tire pressure. Ideally, you should have no more than a quarter of the tank full during shipping.

Remove any loose items, accessories or alarms. Take photos of your vehicle prior to it being picked up for a visual reminder and proof of its condition.

Finally, procure marine insurance to protect your military motorcycle against theft and damages sustained during shipping. Ask your shipping company to guide you through the process.
