What factors influence the cost of shipping a BMW motorcycle?

While there are certain factors that will impact domestic motorcycle shipping rates, there are additional factors that must be considered when shipping your BMW motorcycle internationally.  Domestic factors include:

  • make and model of the bike
  • pick-up and delivery location
  • regular or expedited shipping
  • size and weight of the bike
  • time of year
  • type of transport (crated, door-to-door, enclosed, open-air, or terminal-to-terminal)

In addition to the factors above, there are additional factors that our company, Cheap Motorcycle Shipping considers with international BMW motorcycle shipping.  These include additional charges for duties, import fees, and taxes that differs with each country. In some countries, the taxes are higher while in others, it is lower. This can affect the cost of shipping your motorcycle.

How do you prepare your BMW motorcycle for domestic or international transport?


While we are accountable for the safety and security of your motorcycle while it’s in transit, the client is responsible for ensuring that the bike is fully prepared for shipping when the transport driver arrives to pick it up.  The following is a list of our recommendations when it comes to preparing your BMW motorcycle for transport:

  • Wash the motorcycle and wheels thoroughly to ensure that all dirt and road grime have been removed.
  • Remove all accessories and personal items.
  • Tighten any loose items.
  • Disable the bike’s alarm system (if it has one)
  • Check all fluids and tire pressure.
  • Leave the fuel tank no more than1/4 full.
  • Disconnect the battery.
  • Inspect the bike for damage; document and photograph any that exists.
  • If time permits, have a mechanic address any mechanical issues.

While it may seem a bit tedious, preparation of the motorcycle for shipping is imperative if you want to ensure its safe arrival at your chosen destination.  For more information about BMW motorcycle shipping, contact Cheap Motorcycle Shipping and speak with a knowledgeable customer service specialist today.
