Shipping your motorcycle overseas


International Motorcycle Shipping: How We Pack and Prepare Your Bike for Overseas Moving


Moving overseas is a thrilling experience, and we understand that your prized possessions, including your motorcycle, deserve special attention. We handle shipping motorcycles in both FCL ( full container load) and LCL ( Less Container Load)

How We Crate Motorcycles for International Moving

1. Initial Assessment:

Before packing begins, our team conducts a thorough assessment of your motorcycle. We take note of its dimensions, weight, and any specific requirements for safe transportation.

2. Custom Crate Design:

Based on the assessment, we design a custom crate that provides a snug fit for your motorcycle. The crate is built to withstand the rigors of international shipping and protect your bike from external elements.

3. Secure Strapping:

Your motorcycle is securely strapped within the crate to prevent any movement during transit. This ensures that your bike arrives at its destination in the same condition it was packed.

4. Padding and Protection:

We use high-quality padding materials to protect your motorcycle from scratches and dings. Every inch of your bike is covered to ensure it remains in pristine condition.

5. Ventilation and Climate Control:

Our crates are designed with ventilation to prevent condensation and control the internal climate. This is especially important for preventing moisture-related damage during the journey.

6. Sealing and Labeling:

The crate is carefully sealed and labeled with your details, destination, and handling instructions. This meticulous labeling ensures a smooth transition through customs and proper handling at every stage.

7. Photographic Documentation:

As an added layer of security, we document the entire packing process with photographs. This documentation serves as a reference point and can be provided to you upon request.


Preparing Your Motorcycle for Overseas Moving

1. Documentation:

Ensure you have all the necessary documentation, including ownership papers, insurance, and any specific permits required by the destination country.

2. Draining Fluids:

Before shipping, it's essential to drain fluids from your motorcycle, including fuel and oil. This minimizes the risk of leakage during transit.

3. Battery Removal:

Remove the motorcycle battery and pack it separately. This is a safety requirement for international shipping.

4. Securing Loose Parts:

Secure any loose parts or accessories to prevent damage during transit. This includes mirrors, handlebars, and other detachable components.

5. Cleaning and Inspection:

Give your motorcycle a thorough cleaning before shipping. This not only adheres to international regulations but also ensures that any pre-existing damage is documented.

6. Insurance Coverage:

Consider obtaining additional insurance coverage for your motorcycle during international shipping. This provides extra peace of mind in case of unforeseen events.


At East Coast Shipping, we understand the importance of your motorcycle, and our team is dedicated to ensuring its safe and secure transportation to your new international destination. Trust us to handle your prized possession with the care it deserves.
