Door to Door

The best way to ensure your Harley Davidson has a safe journey is to schedule convenient door to door shipping. Most motorcycle carriers will arrange to pick your bike up right at your door or as close to it as possible when you schedule service.

If there is an issue with the carrier being unable to coordinate a pickup on your road, the driver will work with you to schedule pickup at a location as near your home or office as possible. This will most often be in a nearby parking lot where the truck can easily turn around once the bike has been loaded.

When the Harley is delivered, the driver will again try to deliver to your door or as close as possible if the roadway and circumstances allow delivery at your address. If not, they will again arrange to meet in a nearby parking lot where the motorcycle can be unloaded safely.

Prepare Your Harley Davidson For Shipping

Insurance for Your Harley Shipping Services

When you ship a motorcycle, the shipper will offer insurance to cover it during transport. Typically, your personal motorcycle insurance will not cover the bike during shipment. Depending on the overall value of your Harley, you may want to ask for an increase to the minimum insurance coverage offered. You should also verify that the transporter's insurance is valid. This can be done by contacting the FMCSA with the transporters insurance certificate number and you can verify that the coverage is valid.

Taking Care of Your Harley

A Harley Davidson is not your typical motorcycle. These bikes are fine, handcrafted masterpieces that although rugged and tough on the highway should be handled with the utmost care during shipment. Care doesn’t start when the driver arrives to pick it up, however. It starts at home when you take time to get your Harley ready for transport.

Simple Steps to Prepare Your Harley Davidson for Shipping
  • Clean your Harley from top to bottom even it is only shipping across town.
  • Take detailed pictures and save the files until delivery has been made.
  • Write down any scratches, dents or other cosmetic damage before it is loaded.
  • Make sure the battery is charged.
  • Check the tire pressure to ensure they are properly inflated.
  • Check to see that the fuel level is around a quarter tank for shipment.
  • Check for leaks and repair if you find any. Many drivers will not load a bike that has fluid or fuel leaks.

Unless you are shipping internationally, you will most likely ship your Harley on a trailer where it will be strapped down for delivery. For overseas motorcycle shipping, you may want to consider having it crated or placed in a container for shipment to prevent it from damage from contact with other motorcycles, automobiles or even vandals along the way. In cases where the bike must be crated, you will need to drain all fluids and disconnect the battery before it is crated.

For international moves, be sure that your Harley Davidson is in good mechanical condition before it is shipped. It can be difficult, or even impossible, to locate replacement parts for a Harley overseas. Be sure to check into your resources ahead of the move so you will be prepared if you need a part or a repair on the bike once it has been shipped.

When you ship with A1 Auto Transport Harley shipping services, you can rest assured that your bike will be handled with care from start to finish.

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!
