How do I prepare my motorcycle for shipping?
Please ensure the motorcycle has less than a quarter of a tank of petrol, for shipping, otherwise, this will have to be drained prior to loading. We will also disconnect the battery to ensure the bike is non-hazardous when shipping.
Can FPS arrange insurance?
Yes – our insurance is arranged independently through our brokers, and all policies are individualised to the importer of the vehicle. This insurance covers the vehicle from loading into the container/on the ship to unpacking on arrival in NZ, and everything in between.
What is Escrow Service?
Escrow is a service in which the payment for the vehicle is made to a guaranteed recipient by the buyer. This recipient then represents the buyer and checks the vehicle and all numbers etc at the time of collection and makes the payment to the seller on behalf of the buyer once all confirmed.
This ensures additional security for overseas buyers, knowing the vehicle and all details are as advised to them by the seller.
I haven’t imported before, can FPS assist to arrange all clearances on arrival?
FPS has an in-house Customs Clearance team, specialising in all Border Clearances formalities required when importing a vehicle into NZ.
