Shipping my motorcycle from Florida to Dominican Republic

Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Shipping my motorcycle from Florida to Dominican Republic

Hello everyone,

My friend and I are doing a round the world trip on motorcycle for 3 years, through 80 countries and 150 000kms. We are near Tampa now and we are planning to go the Dominican Republic next week. We need to get the motorcycles from Florida to Dominican Republic and shipping them on a container is a lot of paperwork and waiting.

Does anyone know about a boat going from Florida to DR or a way to ship our motorcycles without all the waiting and the paperwork?

Thanks,
Frederic

I believe you are looking for smugglers aren't you?

What do you mean? We are just looking for a way to ship our bikes to The Dominican Republic.

Have you talked to a DR Customs Broker yet or researched anything about the paperwork and import fees?

Lastly, the best country for motorbiking in the Caribbean is by FAR Cuba. It's not cheap or easy to import the bike into the country but the payoff is spectacular.

Cheers,
