How To Ship Your Motorcycle To Or From China

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Average cost of shipping a motorcycle from U.S to China is $1,300 to $3, 100 based on the destination city in China
  • The cost does not reflect import duties, taxes and insurance, so check the current import laws before shipping

Located in East Asia, People's Republic of China (PRC) is the second largest country in terms of total area and is equally populated. Sharing its borders with Mongolia, Russia, Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar and Bhutan, China is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. China is vast and has a diverse landscape, ranging from the Gobi desert to the subtropical forests and long coastline on the East China Sea, Yellow Sea, Korea Bay and South China Sea.

Though moving your motorcycle from US to China might not be difficult but it will certainly be a complex procedure due to the stringent laws of China.

Shipping the Motorcycle

Working with our company might be the best decision as we have been in the business of shipping vehicles globally including to China. We are conversant with the vehicle import rules and regulations and can assist you through the whole process.

Motorcycle Shipping Quote China

To start with, securing your motorcycle is one of the most important steps. And that is why only our professionally trained crew is allowed to do that. Using certified wood crates, we use "block and brace" method so that the motorcycle is strapped down and secured safely. Based on the number of motorcycles that are being shipped in one container, they are stacked accordingly. This helps to make the shared container a more affordable option. If you intend shipping it by air, which is the most expensive way to ship, it is necessary to have it crated.

Eligibility to Import a Motorcycle

Only legal residents and ‘Z’ visa (permanent residence cards) or diplomats are allowed to import motorcycles or any other vehicle. Tourists or those on business visa are not eligible to own vehicles.  Additionally, as per the latest changes to the regulations, not everyone that is a resident can import a motorcycle, but only those with ‘foreign expert status’ that is given by the Public Security Bureau and other Visa departments qualify to import motorcycles. If you are a diplomat or a returning citizen who is a diplomat is allowed to import a motorcycle, only in certain cities.

With import come high import duties, VAT and sales taxes that have to be cleared before Chinese Customs Authority clears the vehicle. As imported vehicles are considered to be high-end luxuries, the import duties can be as high as 200% based on the evaluated value of the vehicle.

Stringent Motorcycle Import Laws

Shipping a motorcycle is not that difficult but being eligible to import it is. This is because China has stringent laws that limit the driving of tow wheelers in many cities. Most of the state governments have imposed a ban or have strict laws against driving motorcycles as an attempt to curb traffic snarls and crime. In nearly 200 cities, motorcycles have been banned since 2012 including Guangzhou and Beijing. Additionally, all motorcycles and two-wheelers have to be scrapped after they are registered for 11 years. This includes all high-end motorcycles and superbikes.

★★★★★

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.
