IT CAN COST AS LOW AS AUD 1250.00 TO SHIP YOUR MOTORCYCLE TO NEW ZEALAND WHEN SHIPPING VIA THE SHARED CONTAINER SERVICE
We can offer two different shipping methods for shipping motorcycles to New Zealand.
Firstly, In the same way as the majority cars are transported around the world, motorcycles can also be shipped on a
select number of RoRo vessels that run between Australia and New Zealand.
Motorcycles shipped in this manner are simply ridden on to the vessel and lashed to the deck in an area on the vessel designated specifically for motorcycles. All motorcycles shipped via RoRo are lashed to the floor in one of the many fully enclosed decks to ensure the bike remains protected from the elements during shipment.
If you would like to see what the inside of a RoRo vessel looks like, please have a look at the following article – Roll on, Roll off Shipping.
Secondly, if you plan to ship a motorcycle to Auckland we can also offer to pack and lash the bike inside one of our ‘shared’ containers that we move across to Auckland roughly once a week. This method of shipping means that no one will ride your bike throughout the shipping process, and we can even ship non-running bikes. This method is slightly cheaper, however, costs are based on you dropping to our depot, and collecting at the other end, you will also need to be a little more flexible with timing if you wish to ship inside a shared container.
