How To Ship Your Motorcycle To Or From Argentina

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Average motorcycle shipping costs to Argentina from the United States is about $1200 to $1900.
  • There have been enhancement in import duties and taxes on cars and motorcycles, so consider that when calculating the total cost

Argentina is located in the southern regions of South America and shares its borders with Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay, while it has a long coastline on the east with South Atlantic Ocean. If you planning to stay in Argentine, for professional or personal reasons, or just intend traveling, it is best to import your own motorcycle from USA to Argentina. However, shipping internationally is a cumbersome process marred with plenty of procedures and legal formalities that have to be completed. That is why working with us is cost effective and hassle-free. We are A-1 Auto Transport and understand all aspects of shipping to Argentina and have shipped hundreds of vehicles in the last few years.

Cost of Shipping

To ship a motorcycle from the United States, you will need to determine the total cost prior to shipping. Since Argentina is a member of Mercosur, the Common External Tariff, or CET is between 0% and 20% with some vehicles or motorcycles are charged 35%. Additionally, there is 10.5% VAT or CIF is a total of 21%. You can call us and one of our shipping agents will give you a customized quote based on the specific motorcycle you own. The weight and size of the motorcycle will affect the total shipping price.

When you need to ship your motorcycle to Argentina, you have the option of shipping it on a temporary basis or doing it permanently. The laws differ and you may want to know more about it.

Temporary Permit

A temporary permit will be issued at the point of entry once in Argentina. You will first need to contact the Argentina Consulate in the United States in order to begin the procedure. The following people are allowed to import motorcycles:

  • Expatriates with PR and want to move to Argentina permanently,
  • Returning citizens coming back to Argentina after living abroad
  • Those who have a temporary visa
  • Diplomats and members of the military

You will need to obtain a temporary visa which can be renewed as often as you need it to be. Once the visa has expired, the import permit will expire also.

Permanent Residency

A permanent resident visa can be issued, if you plan to stay for good. You will be allowed to import one vehicle and one motorcycle or two vehicles per each family. There are a few rules that must be followed:

  • The driver of the motorcycle must be at least 21 years old
  • The motorcycle must be registered in the driver’s name for at least three months prior to arriving
  • The permanent resident visa must be granted prior to the motorcycle arriving.

If you have chosen to obtain a temporary permit, you can convert that permit as needed. The motorcycle is only handed over to the shipper or the owner. You are not allowed to sell the motorcycle for two years after the import process.

Documents and Registration

There is plenty of documentation that needs to be done before the import is allowed. Additionally, In order to import and register your motorcycle, you will need to make copies of the following documents:

  • Passport or driver’s license
  • National Directorate of Migration Permanent residence certificate
  • Original purchase invoice of your motorcycle
  • Ocean Bill of Lading in your name
  • Certificate of residency in Argentina
  • Pre-shipment Inspection certification

It is essential that returning citizens submit proof of living abroad for at least 2 years while the foreigners need to state their stay in the country of origin for at least 1 year.

Types of Shipping

If you're transporting via container, you can fit between six and eight motorcycles in a 20-foot container. Sixteen to eighteen motorcycles can fit within a 40-foot container. For safe transit, the battery is removed and the fuel tank is drained. This method can be used to ship any motorcycle, regardless of its condition or functionality. Motorcycles are sometimes transported by cart to avoid dings and scrapes. It's a more secure and safe option.

However, if you are on a budget and the motorcycle is operational, we can help you ship it by RORO. Only minimum fuel is needed in the fuel tank and the battery is not disconnected. However, the tires are screwed and immobilized in the metal plates so that there is no rolling out during freight shipping.

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