What’s the Difference between International and Domestic Motorcycle Shipping?

There is a huge difference between domestic and international motorcycle shipping services. Shipping a motorcycle domestically means that you are shipping it to another location within the same nation. While shipping it internationally means that you are delivering it to another country, often overseas.



The process of shipping a motorcycle domestically is simple for professionals at A1. Regardless of the method of transport chosen, domestic motorcycle shipping is usually done through ground transport.

For this, the bike is usually picked up from its home and transported to its destination. It may be secured to a trailer, inside a container, or by other ground shipping methods.

When your motorcycle is shipped internationally, there is a little more involved in its delivery process. The shipping company and customer must obey foreign import laws and all taxes must be paid before the transport can take place. The bike is delivered to the other nation by ground and overseas transport if necessary. If the motorcycle is shipped overseas to the country of its destination, it is secured to the top of a flatbed freight ship or inside of a container.
