 How To Ship Your Motorcycle To Or From Austria

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Shipping a motorcycle to Austria from USA costs about $1270 to $1700 apart from additional import taxes and duties, as applicable 
  • Import duties and other taxes are based on the evaluated value of the motorcycle

If you intend staying in Austria, commuting in and around the city would be much easier when you have your own motorcycle. As shipping a motorcycle is cost effective and with assistance from our shipping agents in US and Austria, you will be able to import your motorcycle without the stress. However, it is good to work with us as our company A-1 Auto Transport is one of the leading international shipping services with a network of shipping agents all over the world. Our European agents in Austria will ensure that your motorcycle clears the Customs and is delivered in the destination city. In case you opt for door to door or door to port services, there will be additional charges but the convenience is worth it.

Cost of Shipping

We’ll give you written quote based on the CIF i.e. freight cost, insurance and cost of shipping. Additionally, the import duties and assorted fees will need to be calculated. The Austrian Customs Authority charges 6% import duty on motorcycles and the applicable VAT is 20% based on the CIF of the bike. NOVA, or the Standard consumption tax, will be charged at the local tax office if you want to license the motorcycle in Austria (This usually runs between 8% and 14% of the actual value of the motorcycle). However, if you are moving here permanently, you are exempt for paying one-time any import duty.

Temporary License Requirements

If you don’t intend staying in Austria permanently, you can apply for temporary permit. You will need to provide proof that the motorcycle has been in your possession for a period of at least one year in the United States. The motorcycle must be listed and cleared separately from household items and personal items. You cannot sell or transfer a motorcycle after it has been cleared from customs unless you have paid all customs duties and VAT. You will need to obtain a separate customs clearance, if needed.

Needed Documents

You will be required to provide copies of documents that will establish ownership and to ensure that the motorcycle you are bringing to Austria is safe and legal. You will need:

  • Motorcycle title deed
  • Motorcycle registration documents
  • Purchase invoice
  • Form T1, if needed
  • Shipper’s passport
  • Residence/work permit
  • Insurance on the motorcycle

Shipping Methods

Your motorcycle can be shipped over to Austria from USA by Roll On/ Roll Off or container shipping methods. The method you opt for will affect the total cost of the shipping, so consider your options.

If you want something simple and as inexpensive as possible, Roll-On/ Roll Off is the choice for you. Your motorcycle will be placed on a deck of a ship where it is strapped down and immobilized inside of a bay. During this time, your motorcycle will not be able to move, protecting it from damage. You will need to first clean your motorcycle, remove all removable items, and leave the key in the switch before turning it over to customs. It must show 1/4 tank of gas in it too.

Container shipping will give your motorcycle maximum protection from theft and weather conditions during the trip. Your motorcycle is placed inside of a container where it is strapped down or it will be crated before it is loaded along with other motorcycles, so it doesn't move. However, if you are moving your household goods and have hired the complete 20 feet or 40 feet container, it will be placed along with the personal and household items.

...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.

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.
