Worldwide Motorcycle Transports
For all transports, the motorcycle must be packed in one case. Just talk to your local motorcycle dealer - they are often happy when the overpack of new vehicles can be disposed free of charge. Best try your luck at one of the dealers of Italian or Japanese manufacturers. Although many brands have already converted to returnable packing, you should give it a try! You will save hard cash if you keep your box as small as possible, e.g. by removing the front wheel.
Alternatively, packaging can take place via an enterprise in Hamburg determined by us. Please note that transportation costs are higher in this case, since – due to liability reasons - no parts of the motorcycle may be removed and thus the packaging will be more spacious.
Further package can be stowed unless hazardous substances according to aviation regulations are involved (e.g. batteries/accumulators, methylated spirits, motor oil, aerosols).
Our prices are calculated individually, so please inform us about length, width and height (please remove mirror!) as well as weight. Primarily, volume matters! The smaller the box, the cheaper the transportation costs!
Transport to the Destination
It is possible to transport your motorcycle via air freight or via ship. We are pleased to retrieve your ready packed transport box via truck featuring lift and pallet cart at your premises.

As an agent for transport services, we are reliant on forwarding companies at the destination. Particularly for exotic destinations, a price determination requires a considerable amount of time. Costs are often in no relation to the whole holidays. The preparation of an offer is free of charge at any time. This is our philosophy of service. However, please understand that we have to refuse some enquiries due to above mentioned as well as liability reasons. Please contact us for further information.
At the Destination
Please contact the local representation of your airline or shipping company after your arrival. After payment of local fees, customs clearance will be effected. Now you just need to unpack your motorcycle and off you go! The approximate time duration at the airport comes to 1 day. Depending on the destination, waiting time at seaports can be much longer. Mostly, you can leave your empty box at the destination.
Due to developments at the Argentinian port and customs authorities, we advise against maritime transport to Argentina. Both our local agent and travellers speak of long-lasting and expensive releasing processes. This exclusively applies to maritime transport. We still offer this method of transport, but we will not assume any liability for additional expenses emerging at the destination.

For most destinations, a so-called Carnet de Passage is recommended or even prescribed. For a binding information concerning final import of vehicles, please be addressed to the automobile club or the customs authorities at the destination.
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!
As an option, we offer a transport insurance against total loss and transport damage of your motorcycle. The premium amounts to 0.95% of the vehicle value, at least € 95.00. Paint damages and oxidation are excluded, vehicles older than 9 years are insurable against total loss only. Please note that additional luggage stowed in the transport box is uninsurable. We recommend to inform yourself about a traveller´s baggage insurance. In case of damage, it must be visible from outside. Retention comes to € 500.00 per claim.
The costs are premised on the height of the transport box and the destination.The prices are based on current fares and also include present fuel and security charges as well as fees for dangerous goods besides German clearance charges. Airport or harbour charges are usually not included. We will inform you separately in our offer.
