How to Ship a Motorcycle to Guam?
If you want to ship your motorcycle out of the USA and into Guam, you will need to schedule a transport date with an international motorcycle transport company. Companies that specialize in auto transport overseas, provide safe shipping solutions for all types of motorcycles and other vehicles. However, shipping a bike overseas is a much different process than shipping a bike within the same nation.
You will need to prepare all the requested documentation including your driver’s license, Bill of Lading and passport. Customs officials will need to see all the proper forms in order to release permission for the motorcycle’s entry into Guam. Try to stay updated on changes in rules and regulations so you do not wind up forgetting something. You can call the Philippine Consulate General in Agana, Guam for more information on the import of motorcycles.
Are International Motorcycle Shipping Services Really Safe?
It is rare that a transporter ever finds themselves knee deep in insurance claims. Shipping a vehicle through a professional is absolutely the safest way to have a bike delivered domestically or overseas. If you have never shipped a bike with a professional in the past, do some research in order to find the most reputable international motorcycle shipping companies. You will need to compare at least three quotes from three different companies to make sure you get the best deal.
Transport Methods Used to Ship Motorcycles Overseas to Guam
- Enclosed Transport- This is the safest way to transport a motorcycle. The thick walls of the shipping container shelter the bike from roaring ocean waters, bad weather and other potentially dangerous outside elements.
- Open Air Transport – Used by dealers, manufacturers and individuals. This is also the most common way to transport vehicles.
- Crated – This form of shipping might require you to remove the handlebars and mirrors off of the bike. You will have to drain the fluids as well to ensure that no leaks occur during transport.
