Two Kinds of Motorcycle Shipping
Non-Palletized Motorcycle Shipping
Your cycle will be strategically strapped to eye bolts on the floor of our trucks. These shipments take a bit longer to load but the in-transit times are shorter since the trucking routes are direct. With this method, no online tracking is available. This service is only available on selective routes.
Palletized Motorcycle Shipping
This is our premium service, where your motorcycle is treated to the utmost care and attention. Your bike will be secured to a pallet and shipped in an enclosed air ride trailer. Shipping times range between seven and 14 days. Online tracking is available with this service. Ideal for specialty or high-end cycles and vintage or classic bikes where TLC is of paramount importance.
Safely and carefully roll your motorcycle onto a pallet.
Strap down both sides and ensure no wiggling can occur.
Secure the front and back of the cycle to the side of the truck.
Add protection across the tires and use a power lift to offload your bike.

The first step is to do your research on motorcycle shippers. Choose one that’s reputable, that offers instant quotes, and that gives you affordable rates.

How Much Does Motorcycle Shipping Cost?
Generally, it will cost you between $400 and $600 to ship a motorcycle 1,000 miles. For shorter shipments, your price tag will be between $180 and $300. Price also depends on what you’re shipping, whether an on-road vehicle or off-road vehicle. Check out what we ship here.
What to Consider When Choosing a Motorcycle Shipping Company
Generally, you have a couple of options: open trailer or enclosed. Open means your bike may share a truck with several other vehicles and will be exposed to the elements for the journey. Closed means your bike is inside the truck, or even in its own container.
You’ll also want to make sure you understand what door-to-door shipping means. In a nutshell, if you live in a spacious neighborhood with no overhanging branches or restrictions, we can pick up your motorcycle at your door and deliver it to the doorstep of the next destination. However, if you live on a narrow, crowded, busy street, a dead end, or in a community that places restrictions on the types of trucks that can inhabit it, we may have to meet you at a nearby parking lot to make the exchange.

Motorcycle Shipping Tips
Before shipping your motorcycle, it’s important to be prepared for what will happen. There are a few things you need to take care of before that happens. Here are some tips to keep in mind.
Prior to the arrival of your motorcycle carrier, it’s important to do a once-over to protect your motorcycle during the shipping process. Take photos of the state of your bike and inspect for any marks or dents that are already there. Then, you can better compare the condition later, and if there is a dispute, you can show the photos to the insurance company. It’s very rare that a bike is damaged during transport, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Be early for pickup. The driver will also take the time to look over your motorcycle for pre-existing damage. He will make note of any findings within his report.
