Advantages Of Motorcycle Shipping

Motorcycle transport is a key component of every auto transport company’s business and there’s a highly competitive market for providing the most affordable prices available. With this being the case, there’s an advantage to be leveraged by customers seeking motorcycle shipping services which allows them to find the cheapest available price with relatively little legwork. It’s definitely still worth looking into prices and services to find the best fit, but the bottom line is that with a few phone calls, there are some real bargains to be found.

Shipping a motorcycle is generally affordable to being with, at least relative to shipping other types of vehicles which are larger, heavier, and require more cargo space to move. While it may cost upwards of $1,000 to ship a car halfway across the United States, a motorcycle can typically be shipped for a fraction of the price. If you’re lucky enough to find a transport company with room to spare, it’s not out of the realm of possibility to find a company that’s willing to do it for much less than many competitors.

Motorcycle Shipping Cost

While it may be tempting to hop on your bike and make a road trip out of the situation, there are some distinct advantages to working with a transport company to ship your bike. For one, there’s the mechanical cost of riding for several hours a day and the risk of putting hundreds, if not thousands of miles on your motorcycle. When you factor in the cost of gas, food, lodging, and the potential for wear and tear on the bike, it’s very cost effective to work with a motorcycle shipping company if your real goal is to enjoy a ride in a different part of the country.

Anticipating Motorcycle Shipping Costs

One of the main questions we receive from our customers who are looking to ship a motorcycle is “How much will it cost?” While there’s no simple answer to this question because of the number of things that factor into the total cost, it can be helpful to understand the basics of what will affect the price you pay. Here are the main aspects of shipping a bike that will dictate how much it costs:

  • Shipping Distance – The further the distance, the more man power and gas it takes to deliver a motorcycle.
  • Type of Bike – Some motorcycles are larger than others and accommodating larger types of bikes may cost more.
  • Weight – The more transport cargo weighs, the more it will cost to ship it.
  • Transport Method – Standard delivery ends a transport terminal, but if you want your motorcycle shipped directly to your door (or a specific address), that carries an additional charge.
  • Storage – If you need short term storage before your bike is delivered, that also has a small added costs.

These are the basic pricing elements that will determine the price you pay for motorcycle shipping, though there are sometimes other factors at play, such as current fuel prices, availability of transport trucks and the difficulty of getting to certain destinations.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
