Calculating Your Cost to Ship a Motorcycle

When you’re in need of shipping services for your motorcycle, gather several quotes so you can compare the rates between each company.

As a customer, you want to receive the lowest possible quote, but don’t let it deter you from using a preferred transport method or from purchasing optional services to enhance the shipping process. Fortunately, all auto transport services are set affordably.

The final cost to ship a motorcycle depends on many things. You can’t possibly get an exact total on your bill without submitting certain information to the transport company you might buy services from. The shipping process for a vehicle can range anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

What Details Affect Your Bike’s Transport?

  • Vehicle specs such as age, weight, and brand.
  • The distance the transporter must travel to deliver the motorcycle.
  • The transport services you decide to buy.
  • Whether or not you ship along other household goods with the vehicle.
  • The time of year you need the motorcycle shipped.
  • The price of fuel at the time of the transport.

After the transporter has received the information they need, they’ll begin calculating the cost of your transport. Within minutes, you’ll have an estimate for your motorcycle’s shipping process.

Insurance Coverage Is Essential.

If you’re going to trust someone to deliver your bike for you, make sure they carry insurance. Most professional auto transport companies provide their shipping customers with insurance coverage without charging any extra to their bill. Ask the transporter about their insurance coverage before scheduling a transport with them. Their policy should provide more than enough coverage.
