They must do or they would never get into the UK in the first place. But they may need a specialist carrier.Do any of you have experience in international moving with an e-bike? Do cargo ships allow the transport of batteries of 600 Wh and up in a container together with furniture and personal belongings?
Taken mine across to Spain & France by ferry from UK numerous times without any issues - but then again, it was inside a campervan & no one asked.That's right... however, it is different to send a new battery as part of a commercial shipment and in the original packaging, rather than in a shipping container with many other things.
Delving into things online, I read that it would actually have to be shipped separately and that you have to show some certifications, and follow some guidelines for the package (covering the contacts, etc.)
I would be curious to know if someone ever tried...
