Many of us at James Cargo are ourselves avid motorcyclists. We know that it’s about riding your own bike on open roads, scenery, fresh air, camaraderie with your friends and the people you meet along the way and, most importantly, having fun.
We do our best to provide the simplest and most cost effective shipping solution to getting your motorbike to your chosen destination and back (although some say that coming back is optional)
Motorcycle shipping and transportation is far easier than most people think. Many of the old rules have been lifted so that in many countries you can collect you bike 'ready to ride away'
You tell us where you’re coming from and where you want to go, when you want to travel and we’ll do our best to ship your bike/s there and back. We provide international transportation by air and sea together with packing using only approved materials and customs clearance in most countries and major cities.
Your shipping options are pretty much endless so fill in the quote form and we will get back to you with a tailored transportation plan.
If you are Adventure Travelling around the lesser explored parts of the world then you will encounter stretches of gravel road and even off road on your travels. Plan ahead and take in some training with the best to ensure that your riding skills are at their peak. The BMW off road skills course will do just that. Watch Video Here
More than just getting you there

4000 Miles for Hounds First.
Matt Tipper is riding 4000 miles across the USA on his scooter (Shipped by James Cargo Motorcycle Shipping) to raise money for Hounds First Sighthound Rescue. Please share this post and consider sponsoring him.
Matt says; After battling with severe depression last year I decided it was time to set myself a challenge. I had always wanted to cross the USA on my scooter but the illness had always talked me out of even starting to plan such a trip. After a relationship ended I hit rock bottom and decided that now was the time to prove to myself that I could do it.
The plan is to leave ride nearly 4000 miles in 30 days from coast to coast of America alone on my 200cc scooter. I will be stopping off at as many of the world largest roadside attractions along the way. Included on this list are the world?s largest shoe, largest knitting needle, largest artichoke and the world?s largest clothes peg. I fly out to JFK on the 11th of May.
I decided to use my adventure to raise some funds for a charity. I first contacted a couple of mental health charities but they weren?t very supportive so instead I decided to raise money for something very close to my heart DOGS.
Hounds first are a charity that specialise in the rehabilitation and rescue of sighthounds (greyhounds, lurchers, whippets and so on). They need to raise up to £4000 a month to pay for vets bills, food, transport and medicines so they are a very worthy cause.
If anybody can spare a few quid to donate to such a fantastic cause then they can do so at my just giving page here -https://www.justgiving.com/Matt-Tipper1
Sitting on Matts lap is his Iggy Franco who won?t be coming on the trip - he will be kept nice and warm at home.
