Air freight, outward and return transport from €5,000.00 $5,562.29 ?
The costs are based on the size of the transport box and amount to approx. € 5,000.00 by air freight for a normal enduro from various airports in Germany to Australia and back, and approx. € 2,500.00 by ship. The prices are based on current rates and include all port and handling charges in addition to the current fuel, dangerous goods and security fees. Please consider this as a rough price indication, costs vary depending on destination and box size. Fork transport as well as a way there by flight, back by ship or vice versa is possible. The weighting of the price for outward and return transport is about 40/60.

Pick up of the ready packed transport box by truck with lifting platform and pallet truck (depending on booking)
Our prices are calculated individually, we therefore ask you to give us the length, width and height (mirror / glass disassembly!) and weight - primarily the volume is decisive, so the smaller the box the cheaper the transport costs.

Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.


Return Transport

Return transport can be effected via plane or ship. You have the option to book just a one-way transport. In this case, our partner takes care of the organisation of packaging at the port of destination. The approximate duration of transport will be 7 days via airplane or 7 weeks via ship.

It is possible to deliver your motorcycle in a transport box via truck featuring lift and pallet cart to your premises.

At the Destination (in Case of a one-way Transport)

Please contact the local representation of your airline or shipping company after your arrival. After payment of local fees, customs clearance will be effected. Now you just need to unpack your motorcycle and off you go! The approximate time duration at the airport comes to 1 day. You can leave your empty box there. Of course, this process can be handled at the destination along with our partner. However, travellers are advised to perform these steps by themselves due to financial reasons.

At the Destination (in Case of both Transports)

For a joint customs clearance, please contact our local partner after your arrival. Now you just need to unpack your motorcycle and off you go! The approximate time duration comes to 1 day. The empty box will be stored by our correspondent. Please contact our forwarding agent a few days prior to return transport and coordinate your vehicle´s drop off. Upon completion of your vacation and customs clearance, your motorcycle will be repacked into the box. Anything else will be organised by us here in Hamburg or by our partner at the destination.


For a trouble-free import and export in your country of destination, a so-called Carnet de Passage is required. It is exclusively available at automobile clubs (in Germany ADAC). The Carnet needs to be presented in the country of destination only, it is not required for the export from Germany.

For a binding information concerning final import of vehicles, please be addressed to the automobile club or the customs authorities at the destination. The vehicle must be absolutely clean and free of Insects and dirt.The same applies to luggage transported in the relevant box. An investigation of the Australian agricultural authority is mandatory and a quarantine can be decreed.


For transports to Australia, the motorcycle must be packed in one case. Just talk to your local motorcycle dealer - they are often happy when the overpack of new vehicles can be disposed free of charge. Best try your luck at one of the dealers of Italian or Japanese manufacturers. Although many brands have already converted to returnable packing, you should give it a try! You will save hard cash if you keep your box as small as possible, e.g. by removing the front wheel.

Alternatively, packaging can take place via an enterprise in Hamburg determined by us. Please note that transportation costs are higher in this case, since – due to liability reasons - no parts of the motorcycle may be removed and thus the packaging will be more spacious.

Further package can be stowed unless hazardous substances according to aviation regulations are involved (e.g. batteries/accumulators, methylated spirits, motor oil, aerosols).

Our prices are calculated individually, so please inform us about length, width and height (please remove mirror!) as well as weight. Primarily, volume matters! The smaller the box, the cheaper the transportation costs!
