How To Ship Your Motorcycle To Or From Afghanistan

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Standard shipping costs from the USA to Afghanistan is between $1,600 and $2,000. For super- bikes or more expensive motorcycles, 
  • As Afghanistan is landlocked, the motorcycle is shipped through Pakistan by container shipping or RORO (roll on, roll off) shipping method.

The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is a landlocked country located within central and South Asia. It shares its borders with Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Tajikistan and some area with China. . The climate in Afghanistan is cold in the winter with snow and the summers are very hot and dry. This is due to its location in the Hindu Kush mountain ranges.

Though it is the 42nd most populous country, internal strife has increased the political and economy situation volatile in the past few years. However, if you want to bring your motorcycle to Afghanistan from USA on a temporary or permanent basis, there are a few things you should know first.

Cost of Shipping

When shipping your motorcycle to Afghanistan, you will be charged the duty or import taxes based on CIF which is the cost, insurance, and freight value. Additionally, Valorem tariff is a fixed percentage determined by the value of your vehicle.

License and Restrictions

There are some specific restriction and limitations when you are shipping your motorcycle to Afghanistan. If you are here on a short stay and plan to import your motorcycle on a temporary basis, you will first need to fill out the paperwork prior to leaving the United States. Once your motorcycle reaches the port of entry, you will be issued a temporary license. You must be the one that fills out the paperwork and the one who is there when your vehicle arrives at port. Your temporary pass will need to be renewed if you stay longer than your original intentions. Normally a pass will last for about three months.

Permits and Paperwork

If you are importing your motorcycle from the United States to Afghanistan, you will need to apply for permission. Here are the steps to transporting:

  • Fill out and submit a Customs Declaration
  • Submit the original invoice, or some other type of proof that lists the actual price paid for the vehicle. This document should also list the origin, original Bill of Lading, as well as the packing list.
  • Transit permission if the motorcycle will be transported through Pakistan. You can get this document from the Afghan Transit Department at the Ministry of Commerce and Industries (MoCI). 
  • An emissions certificate that states that your vehicle has met all emissions requirements in order to enter Afghanistan. You will need to submit the EPA form 3520-1 as well as the DOT form HS-7.

Before shipping, you will need to prepare the motorcycle for transportation. Start with cleaning it; note the dings and scratches, while you will need to write down the mechanical issues, if any. It is best to take a few pictures from varied angles. If there are existing damages, it is best to take detailed shots. When you are moving the motorcycle through a freight carrier, you will be required to drain the gas tank, remove the battery and crate the motorcycle. This will minimize movement and thus, reduce any chance of damage.

Types of Shipping

Some of the commonly used methods of freight shipping to Afghanistan include:

  • Roll On/ Roll Off - Your motorcycle will be placed directly on the ship. It will need to be able to run on its own. However, during transit the tires are fixed into metal protectors. Once the ship reaches the port in Pakistan, it will be driven off and turned over to customs. Then after clearance, it will be land transported to Afghanistan.
  • Container - This method of shipping is an option for those who plan to send over more items with their motorcycle. Your crated motorcycle will fit inside of a 20 foot or 40 foot container where you can pack up your household goods or anything else you want to bring with you.

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!
