Packing your motorcycle for shipping
All vehicles should be carefully packed and secured for transport, and your motorbike is no different. At Rapid Shipping, we will collect your motorcycle from your residence or place of work, or you can opt to deliver your bike to our depot to reduce costs.
We will carefully pack your motorcycle into a purpose-built wooden shipping case. This case has room for your helmet, leathers, and a few personal effects if you wish to ship them all together. Your bike will then be delivered to the port for immediate overseas shipping.
Sea freight motorcycle shipping
One of the most popular methods of shipping is sea freight. Sea freight is a cost-effective motorbike shipment method and is ideal if you do not need your bike immediately when you arrive in the UK from China.
Your crated motorbike will be loaded onto a steel shipping container alongside other customers’ shipments. You’ll receive confirmation of the sailing details to help track your motorbike, and our weekly sailings to all major ports means you can have your bike delivered to a destination convenient for you.
Air freight motorcycle shipping
If you are looking for a speedy shipment method, air freight motorcycle delivery is the way to go. Sending your motorcycle via air is the fastest method but can be more expensive than sea freight, but it is ideal if you need your bike sooner rather than later.
Your crated motorcycle will be sent directly to the airport and loaded immediately onto an aircraft. You’ll receive a copy of the air waybill with all of the flight dates and times so you can track your shipment with ease.
Comprehensive transit insurance
Your motorcycle is important, which is why Rapid Shipping offers comprehensive transit insurance to protect your bike. Our full marine transit insurance covers all motorcycles shipping to the UK from China to minimise the risk of damage and give you complete peace of mind knowing that your bike is in safe hands.
Customs clearance for your motorcycle
The Rapid Shipping team has extensive experience with customs clearance and import duties. Our local agents can arrange customs clearance on your behalf and collect your motorcycle when it arrives. Your bike is then ready to ride away.
You can also opt to handle customs duties yourself and collect the crated motorbike directly from the port to save money. If you have any questions about which method is right for you, you can speak to a member of the Rapid Shipping team on 01604 926201.
