How To Import Your Bike To NZ


Importing Your Motorcycle Steps

  • Get In Touch Via Email

    Let us know what bike(s) you are interested in. Any model is OK. Ducati, Triumph, Aprilia, MV Augusta and KTM are also available. bikes(@)sugo.co.nz

  • Feedback

    We will compile a portfolio of pricing for the bike model(s) specified by you. This will include examples of historic pricing so you can get a feel for the cost to get your bike bought at auction.

  • Auctions

    Auctions are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We will send you examples of available bikes that you are interested in. Each bike will have description of flaws and pictures of the bike. There might even be a video of it.

  • Bidding

    If you have decided to bid on a bike we can proceed to place your bid on behalf of you. If you are undecided about a bike then we can request more information or even set a condition to bid or not bid in case something is wrong with the bike.
    We will let you know by the end of the day or next morning if your bid was sucessful. If the bid was not sucessful we go back to Step 3 and email you more examples what will be available in upcoming auctions. Don't be discouraged if you don't succeed at the first try, we can just keep going.

  • Sucessfull Bid & Shipping

    Once the bike is bought we will then pick up your bike and prepare for shipping to NZ. Shipping to NZ can take anywhere between 1 and 3 months. Usually it's around a month and a half. NOTE: At this point we have to pay for the whole bike including freight charges so we will require full payment of the bike at this stage. (COST 1, 2 & 3 - See below section in COSTS)

  • Landing

    Your bike will be landing in the Auckland port. From there it needs to be cleared by MAF and GST is also applicable. Please see the below section on 'COSTS' for a breakdown of every cost involved.

  • Compliance

    We can get the bike complied and registered on your behalf so that you can ride it on New Zealand roads (unless you want to do it yourself or have other plans). NOTE: The bike may not necesarily be ready to be complied, you are liable for any fixes or part replacements needed for NZ compliance. Please see 'COSTS' below for a breakdown.
