International vintage & race motorcycle shippers based in the UK

International vintage & race motorcycle shippers based in the UK.

I don’t normally promote someone else’s business. However, I am happy to mention Mike and the team at Hartsmere Logistics Ltd because I have had first hand experience with them.

Shipping a motorcycle is tricky at the best of times. Will it get picked up OK? Will it get to the other end without falling over? Is my bike insured? the list of questions is seemingly endless even when you are having a bike couriered within your own country.

When you factor in the logistics and paperwork needed for international motorcycle shipping, the list of questions gets longer. In fact, there are probably more questions that you don’t even know you should ask.

International motorcycle shipping involves a great deal of paperwork. If your motorcycle has legal title documents, then the paperwork is much easier. If it involves a sale transaction, the documents need to reflect the sale details.

The shippers are also responsible for reporting to the relevant customs authorities in the destination country about the import. They will advise the receiver / buyer of the import duty ahead of time and will expect the duty to be paid before handing the motorcycle over.

I could go on. However, it’s best to contact a professional international motorcycle shipper in the first place. They will be happy to provide you with a quote and will be able to guide you through the process that best suits your needs.

“Hartsmere” have a very experienced shipper who also happens to be a motorcyclist and ex-racer. His name is Mike and he understands our needs. We want the best price. But we also want the job done well.
