One-way Motorcycle Transports from the U.S.
In case of a transport via collection container for vehicles only, a packaging for your motorcycle is not necessary. The motorcycle will be transported loosely.
Your motorcycle will be transported in a collection container for vehicles only. Potential delivery points are Los Angeles, New York and Miami. In any case, Bremerhaven is your port of destination. You have the option to book retrieval by the seller. Our partner in the US will pick up your motorcycle with a car transporter (upon request in a closed vehicle). Depending on the speed of the American customs, duration of transport will be between approx. 20 days and 6 weeks plus some time for retrieval. It is possible to deliver your unpacked motorcycle to your premises.
For the export from the US, the original title must be presented for retrieval. The title will be handed over to the American export customs and automatically shipped to Germany after departure of the vessel.
Customs clearance of the vehicle will be effected by us on the basis of the invoice or sales contract submitted. In exceptional cases, American customs demand a proof of payment concerning purchase. You should take into account that import duties (customs + turnover tax on imports) in the amount of approx. 30% of the purchase price arise. An exact calculation as well as conditions for a so-called customs clearance for vintage cars amounting to 6% of the purchase price can be found on the website of the German customs.
Contract and Payment
When you are ready to purchase, we will prepare a forwarding contract. Please return with your signature. We need the contact details of the seller as well as a copy of the title and the sales contract. Billing of transport will be effected close to collection/handing over of your motorcycle, we do not charge any deposit when the contract is concluded!
