Best Door-To-Door Motorcycle Shipping Companies Services

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 transportation method. Since they are smaller and lighter than cars and trucks, motorcycles are both easier 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, motorcycle shippers are often smaller and more able to handle tighter areas.

This is not to say that every truck or trailer that hauls motorcycles is on the small side. To the contrary, there are some that can pickup and 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 the items are put on display.

Motorcycles can typically be moved more quickly than cars or trucks since they are easier and less cumbersome to ship. Depending on the circumstances and road conditions, a motorcycle courier could potentially go twice as far as a sedan for overnight delivery. Common motorcycles we transport on both short and long distance trips include the following:

  • Roadsters
  • Dual-sport motorcycles
  • Cruisers
  • Choppers
  • Touring bikes
  • Sport touring bikes

We can ship your specific model, type, or size of motorcycle. Just let us know the details when you order and we will arrange to pick it up and ship it at your convenience. When it comes to getting your bike shipping needs sorted with peace of mind, A1 Auto Transport is your best bet.

Preparing Your Motorcycle & Using Enclosed Transport

Before having your motorcycle, ATV, or UTV 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 are no leaks and you should also confirm that all signaling lights are working properly. You can reduce the level of fuel in the gas tank but don't have to empty it. You also may not have to disconnect the battery, except you are shipping internationally.

Any external and non-permanent components on the bike that can be stolen or lost during transit should be removed and it should be cleaned to assess its condition and status. It’s always a good idea to snap a few photos before the shipping process commences 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 during the inspection. 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 can't get in touch with the motorcycle shipping company, person, or motorcycle transport service provider whipping your bike. However, near or far, ensure you patronize motorcycle movers with a good reputation.

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.
