Door 2 Door Motorcycle Shipping Resources

There are two primary ways in which motorcycles are delivered: shipped to a transport terminal or delivered directly to a specific location. When a bike is shipped to a terminal, the customer has to retrieve it themselves, adding an extra step to the process and requiring the use of a trailer to transport it. The other method, known as door-to-door motorcycle transport, eliminates the need for pickup by the customer since it’s dropped at the location specified. As you might imagine, between these two modes of motorcycle shipping, the one that is most commonly used is door-to-door shipping. 

One of the reasons that door-to-door transport is the most popular way of shipping a bike is that it not only provides the most convenience for the customer, but it’s also fairly inexpensive, even if it does cost slightly more than shipping to a terminal. In many cases, the cost difference between the two options is $100 or less, making it a very appealing option, especially when factoring in that it requires no extra steps for the party it’s being shipped for. Door-to-door transport is also available for a wide range of shipping options, including cross country transport, international shipping, and shipping of multiple bikes at once. Additionally, door-to-door shipping can be arranged for any type of motorcycle, including all of the following:

  • Standard Bikes
  • Cruisers
  • Sport Bikes
  • Sport Touring Motorcycles
  • Dual Sport Motorcycles
  • Trikes & Three-wheelers
  • Mopeds
  • Scooters
  • Off-road Bikes

Door To Door Motorcycle Transport

Door-to-Door Motorcycle Shipping Options

Motorcycle shipping companies typically offer a variety of transport services. Door to door shipping isn’t the only service that can simplify your bike’s delivery process. Although the following services are strictly optional, most of them offer advanced levels of convenience and security during your bike’s travels.

  • Expedited shipping puts your motorcycle at the top of the transporter’s priority list and ensures the fastest delivery possible. Depending on the shipping distance, it can sometimes even be delivered within 1-2 days.
  • Satellite tracking is normally a free add-on to a customer’s purchase of shipping services. Real-time satellite tracking services can be accessed through any Wi-Fi enabled device. This allows the customer to see the constant progress of their motorcycle’s shipping process.
  • Crated shipping is a little costlier than other services but it provides a lot more protection. The bike is prepared then secured to a wooden pallet. The wooden pallet is then slid inside of a small shipping crate. Once inside, the motorcycle is kept snug so that it doesn’t shift around during its travels.
  • Enclosed shipping services are often paired with crated shipping to provide for the maximum amount of security and protection during the transport process. When you opt for enclosed shipping, the motorcycle is covered on all sides in an enclosed carrier to minimize the chance of damages from weather or road hazards.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
