Door To Door Motorcycle Shipping Explained

Motorcycles, more than any other type of vehicle, are the type most commonly shipped using the door-to-door transport method. Since they are smaller and lighter than cars and trucks, motorcycles are both easier to to fit onto shipping trucks, and easier to deliver to a specific address. Unlike transport carriers that haul multiple cars and require significant space to turn around, carriers for motorcycles are often smaller and more able to handle tighter areas.

This is not to say that every truck that hauls motorcycles is on the small side. To the contrary, there are some that can ship up to 20 or more motorcycles at once. These types of shipments are usually destined for dealerships where they are sold, or shows and events where they are put on display.

Because they are generally easier and less cumbersome to ship than other types of vehicles, motorcycles can often be transported faster than a car or truck. For example, you may be limited to 300-400 miles for an overnight delivery for a sedan, but a motorcycle delivery may be able to get twice as far, depending on the circumstances and driving conditions. Here are some of the types of motorcycles we ship most commonly:

  • Roadsters
  • Dual-sport motorcycles
  • Cruisers
  • Choppers
  • Touring bikes
  • Sport touring bikes
Easy Way To Shipping

Preparing Your Motorcycle & Using Enclosed Transport

Before having your motorcycle picked up for shipping, there are a few minor preparations you’ll need to make. Tire and fluid levels should be checked to make sure there no leaks and you should also confirm that all signaling lights are working properly.

Any external and non-permanent components on the bike should be removed and it should be cleaned to assess its condition. It’s always a good idea to snap a few pictures before shipping so that you have documentation of the condition it was in. If there are any existing scratches or damages, make sure to document those as well and have the shipper do the same. You can find more in-depth information about preparation for shipping here.

A tip that not all customers consider is that you might want to find a shipper with offices located near to where you’re shipping both to and from. The reason for this is that it makes it easier to coordinate things, communicate, and should the need arise, resolve any issues. The last situation you want to end up in is one in which you’re on the other side of the country and cant get in touch with the company or person whipping your bike.

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.
