Which shipping type should I choose?

Ohhhk! Let us start with this doubt. There are primarily two ways to transport your motorcycles and ATVs overseas by sea:

  • Open Shipping
  • Enclosed Shipping

You should choose Open shipping when you are in hurry and your vehicle is not a luxury bike like The Ducati 1299 Superleggera, Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship. Moreover, if your vehicle comes under the oversized category, then also you can choose open shipping. Remember, that enclosed shipping provides your vehicle utmost security and prevents it from any kind of scratch but might take longer than open shipping.

Even Enclosed shipping is divided further into many categories like:

  • Crated Shipping
  • Uncrated Shipping
  • Metal pallet Shipping
  • Wooden pallet Shipping

Generally, crated shipping is the most frequently used shipping by everyone, but other types of enclosed shipping are also good and offer the same level of security. If you are confused about which type of shipping, should you choose, then you can always contact us from here.

How many days will it take?

Before diving into how much it will cost to ship your vehicle overseas to Western Africa or Europe, let us first see how many days it will take.

Time of transportation is majorly divided into two parts:

  • Pickup and Delivery
  • Transit time in the sea

While pickup and delivery are done within a day or two depending upon your pickup location and delivery location, the main time is consumed in Transit time in the sea. You can easily expect the transportation days to be a minimum of a week to around a month in some cases. You can get the exact number of days by consulting our team of highly qualified professionals who can give you an exact number depending upon your delivery country and city.

How is the cost calculated?

The cost of motorcycle and ATV shipping is dependent upon several factors as mentioned below:

  • Transport type

Have you opted for enclosed motorcycle shipping or open shipping? Generally, open shipping is cheaper than enclosed shipping.

  • Dimensions and Weight of the Motorcycle/ ATVs

Normally the dimensions of all the motorcycles are almost the same with a ± 10% change. But if you have a heavy-duty bike like Suzuki M1800 then be prepared to pay a little more. Sizes of the ATV vehicles are primarily divided into four classes as follows:

ClassWidthWeight (in lbs)Examples
Class I 50”  1,200Quads, Three-wheelers
Class II50” – 60”1,200 – 1,8004*4 , sandrails
Class III32” – 33”200 – 240motorcycles
Class  IV60”- 65”  1,800Side-by-sides
  • Distance

It is the most important factor in cost consideration. More is the distance; more is the cost. Period.
