1) RoRo (Roll-On Roll-Off) Motorcycle Shipping to UK

Shipping Motorcycle to UK via RoRo

RoRo Motorcycle Shipping

You can use RoRo shipping if you’re only intending to ship one motorcycle to the UK. The one condition with this method is that the motorcycle must be able to “Roll On and Roll Off” (RoRo) the ship without any mechanical assistance. Once on the ship, it is secured to the deck with straps and braces, as shown on the image to your right. We do this to lessen the movement that the ship undoubtedly experiences while at sea, which could cause shifting. In the picture, you’ll see we’re shipping Harleys to the UK. In an effort to protect the motorcycles further, we lock the tires into a metal protector and supply plenty of space between motorcycles. While the RoRo shipping method is ideal for shipping one motorcycle to the UK, if you need to ship multiple motorcycles at once, consider the container shipping method.

This is what we ship:

Motorcycles ATVs
Dirt Bikes Trikes
Mopeds Other Off-Road Vehicles

Container Motorcycle Shipping to UK2) Container Motorcycle Shipping to UK

This is the preferred method for dealerships shipping motorcycles to the UK, as many motorcycles can safely fit into one container. Because of this convenient aspect, the price per square foot is reduced; thus, decreasing shipping costs. Many times, several customers who are shipping their motorcycles to the same country share a container to cut down on cost. To save on shipping costs, we group all motorcycles shipping to the UK together into a few containers. Shipping a motorcycle to UK via container is just as safe as RoRo, and by default, we will give you our lowest price between the RoRo and Container shipping methods.

Marine Insurance for RoRo or Container Shipping

We strongly recommend purchasing the optional marine insurance to protect your motorcycle from loss or damage, even though this is rare. Since any ocean vessel WILL rock while out to sea, you may want to protect your investment when shipping a motorcycle to the UK. Don’t worry about cost, as it’s inexpensive to cover motorcycles. The cost of coverage is dependent on the stated value of your motorcycle.
