Ship A Motorcycle to Panama

AA Motorcycle Shipping is prepared to assist with your inquiries regarding the motorcycle shipping process to Panama, covering pricing, documentation, departure and arrival ports. If you have further questions, feel free to contact us directly. As experts in motorcycle shipping, you can depend on our guidance at every stage, drawing from over four decades of experience.

For the most up-to-date pricing quote, please provide us with the Year/Make/Model of your motorcycle, the Pickup Zip Code or Departure Port, and the Destination Country (specifically, Panama).

Pick Up

Many of our customers choose to have us collect their motorcycle from their home or workplace instead of driving it to the nearest port themselves. When you get your quote for shipping your motorcycle to Panama, you’ll see an optional fee for us to pick up and transport your motorcycle to the port, usually costing a couple of hundred dollars.

This can be a good choice if you live far from the port, saving you money on fuel, meals, time off work, return travel, and hotel stays. We’re happy to take care of delivering your motorcycle to the nearest port in the USA.

Departure Shipping Ports

The United States departure ports for shipping motorcycles (RoRo only, no containers) to Panama include:

  • Newark, NJ
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Houston, TX
  • Jacksonville, FL

You can choose to bring your motorcycle and meet us at one of these ports. If that’s not possible, we can arrange to pick up your motorcycle for you.

Arrival At Shipping Terminal in Panama

Our shipping line arrives at the Manzanillo International Terminal in Panama, where our designated representative will receive your motorcycle. Please ensure that this person has cash available to cover any taxes or duties that may apply. The Manzanillo International Terminal, located east of the Atlantic entrance of the Panama Canal on Manzanillo Bay, is one of the largest container transshipment terminals in the region.

How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Motorcycle to Panama

Typically, shipping a motorcycle from the United States to Panama can start at around $800 to $1,000. However, it’s best to request a quote from us to get an accurate estimate based on your specific requirements.

When considering the expenses, it’s essential to consider:

  • Smaller motorcycles generally have lower shipping costs compared to larger ones.
  • Shipping from the East Coast of the USA tends to be more affordable than from the West Coast.
  • Choosing our pickup service at your location will result in additional charges.
  • Even if you opt to deliver your motorcycle to the departure shipping port yourself, remember to plan for your return journey home.

Departure & Arrival Ports, Starting Costs, & Shipping Duration

Typically, it takes about three to four weeks to ship a motorcycle from the USA to the Manzanillo International Terminal in Panama. Please note that the Estimated Time in Transit covers the period from when your motorcycle arrives at the shipping terminal and does not include the time required for the trucker to collect your motorcycle from your location.

Choosing our pickup service for your motorcycle instead of delivering it yourself will affect the final cost. Additionally, factors such as the specific year, make, and model of your motorcycle, as well as your choice of departure port, will also influence the total cost.

Documents Required to Ship Motorcycle to Panama

Before embarking on your motorcycle shipping journey, it’s crucial to ensure you have all the necessary documents in order. These typically include:

  • Title and Registration: You’ll need to provide the original title and registration documents for your motorcycle.
  • Bill of Sale: A copy of the bill of sale is required to prove ownership.
  • Valid Identification: Ensure you have a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport.
  • Import Permit: Depending on Panama’s import regulations, you may need to obtain an import permit for your motorcycle.

Optional Marine Insurance

Consider obtaining optional marine insurance to safeguard your motorcycle against damage or loss. While rare, incidents can occur, particularly during hurricane season from June 1 to November 30. Our Marine Insurance covers your motorcycle from the moment it’s loaded onto the ship until it reaches the destination port. The cost is 1.75% of your motorcycle’s value. We recommend this option if you may not be able to afford repair or loss expenses. Please find more information about Marine Insurance here.

Additional Information

For safety and weight considerations, your bike should have no more than a ¼ tank of gas. The destination handling charge is approximately $300. You must present a clear Title of Ownership with no Liens. If the motorcycle has been sold, both the Seller and Buyer must sign the back of the Title in the designated spaces. If you purchased the motorcycle new, your name must be listed as the registered owner on the front of the Title.

Shipping Methods

We exclusively offer RoRo shipping to Panama, accessible from the following USA ports: Newark, NJ; Baltimore, MD; Houston, TX; and Jacksonville, FL.

(RoRo) Shipping

RoRo, or “roll on, roll off,” is a shipping method for vehicles that can drive onto and off the ship. These ships act like huge parking garages and can carry motorcycles, motorhomes, trailers, buses, and more. RoRo is often used for single vehicles, but they must be able to go up and down the ship’s ramp by themselves. Once your motorcycle is on the RoRo ship, it’s securely fastened in place.

New motorcycle manufacturers often prefer RoRo shipping because it offers additional protection against external elements. All motorcycles are firmly secured to the deck and shielded from exposure to the open ocean.

This method is highly efficient and cost-effective, providing reliable departure and arrival schedules similar to airline flight timetables.

Palletized vs. Non-Palletized Motorcycle Shipping

At AA Motorcycle Shipping, we provide two shipping options: palletized and non-palletized. Non-palletized shipping is faster to load, while palletized shipping involves securing the motorcycle onto a pallet inside a closed air-ride trailer, offering a premium choice with faster transit times.
