How to Ship a Motorcycle to Germany?

Shipping a motorcycle to Germany from the United States is a great idea for anyone visiting the country for an extended stay or moving there permanently. In fact, shipping a motorcycle to the country is easier than you may assume, especially if you hire an experienced auto transport company. There is a lot involved in the process of shipping a bike to another country, allow longstanding transport professionals guide you through the process. The Embassy of Germany can also provide you with invaluable information regarding the laws and tax rates associated with your motorcycle’s entry into the nation.

The Cheapest Way to Ship Your Motorcycle

The least expensive way to ship a motorcycle from the USA to Germany is through open air transport methods. Open air methods exist for both ground transport and overseas shipping. Ground transport includes the use of a car hauler or flatbed trailer. To ship a bike overseas, the motorcycle is secured atop a flatbed freight ship.

Although open air transport leaves the motorcycle open to the possibility of poor weather conditions, this shipping method is known for its reliability. With the transporter’s insurance coverage, you can rest assured that your bike is protected no matter what. Before buying open air services, make sure there are seaports near the country that accept this method. If not, your transport company will find the nearest port to deliver to and will then supply ground transport for the rest of the bike’s journey to its home in Germany.

Aside from paying the costs of shipping services to the transport company, you’ll also be responsible to pay all taxes associated with auto import in Germany. As of current times, the duty on imported autos in Germany is 10% and there’s also a value added tax (VAT) of 20%. For motorcycles, the duty is usually between 6% and 8%. For more information about the value added tax for import into the country, call the Embassy of Germany.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
