Motorcycle Loading and Handling

Did you know that faulty equipment and improper securing are the leading cause of damage during transit?

Securing vehicles is one of the most important steps of international motorcycle shipping, which is why our warehouse crews are professionally trained and we only use state of the art equipment.

Furthermore, when shipping a motorcycle via container, all of our loading is done in house and not by a Broker!

We only use certified wood and within the containers, the motorcycles are strapped down and secured using the "block and brace" method.

Depending on how many motorcycles are being shipped and the size of the container, bikes may also be double stacked, resulting in a lower cost per vehicle.

Motorcycle Shipping via Air Freight

Besides ocean transport, our air freight division offers services for both importing and exporting motorcycles from the USA.

When using either a container or RoRo service, most carriers make it optional to have your motorcycle crated. However, when using any air freight service, all bikes must be crated using certified heat treated and stamped wood.

There are additional documents that are needed with the most important being the SLI form. Also, the cost of shipping motorcycles with air freight is based on cubic volume due to the demand for space and weight limits on most airliners.

If you need the expedited transport for your harley or ninja, air freight is an option and works well with short time frames but the tradeoff to this is a higher overall cost.
