How Long Will My Motorcycle’s Transport Take?

The length of time it takes to get your motorcycle from one place to the next obviously depends on the distance of travel ahead. Other things also matter including the time of year, road construction, and traffic during the transport. If you’re shipping your motorcycle internationally, expect delays due to any difficulties you might have with a country’s import laws.

The average transport of a motorcycle from coast to coast is about two weeks’ time. If there are any distractions during the transport, expect delays. Of course, A1 professionals will notify you if delays are obvious.

Shipping a bike state to state will take less than a couple weeks in most cases while shipping internationally could take as long as three or four weeks depending on the distance, import laws and specifications of the shipping process.

For customers who are concerned over the timeframe in which the motorcycle is delivered, there are high priority services that include expedited and guaranteed delivery. Expedited shipping will put your bike at the top of A1’s list so that it is shipped out right away. Guaranteed delivery means that your bike will arrive at its destination by a specified date.
