What Is A Motorcycle Shipping Cost Estimator?

As with any type of service, it’s important to do some research before settling on a company to ship your motorcycle. Not only will you find a host of different services and options available from companies you look into, but you’re also likely to find prices that can vary, sometimes drastically. Because this is the case, one of the best things you can do to help save some money is to determine exactly what service you need and how much each company is willing to work with you to settle on an affordable price. 

One thing that’s important to keep in mind when evaluating costs from companies that ship bikes is that some of them may be significantly cheaper for a reason. It’s an unfortunate reality that there are some less established companies in the industry that are less than reputable or, even worse, simply out to make a quick buck. Before we get into the details of how a shipping cost estimator works, let’s quickly run down what to look for in a company before you contact them for a price quote. 

The first thing you want to look for when assessing motorcycle shippers is how long they’ve been in business. An established track record of successful deliveries and satisfied customers should be the hallmark of any reputable motorcycle transporter. The second thing you want to look carefully at is the quality of their website. Does it thoroughly explain all of their services? Does the website answer questions you have about the process and how they arrive at costs? Does their website contain ample information to help you make an informed decision or is it simply a one page stand-in which basically operates as an online pamphlet of their services?

Motorcycle Shipping Cost Factors

Any cost estimator, whether an online tool or a person you speak with over the phone, basically operates on the same pricing criteria. Ideally, the best way to get an estimate is to gather all the pertinent information you’ll need to get an estimate and contact several competing companies with the information (after comparing them on the basis of the criteria mentioned above) and see which offers the most competitive rate, along with quality service, of course. In many cases, this can be done easily and quickly through an online pricing tool that more established websites tend to have available, but it can also be done on the phone or through email. 

What Details Affect The Cost of Your Motorcycle Transport?

  • The motorcycle specs: size, weight, year, make, model
  • Transport distance and difficulty of delivery process
  • Method of transport (for example, enclosed transport, storage, etc.)
  • Delivery date requested--faster delivery is more costly 
  • Fuel costs at the time of transport
  • Insurance coverage requested (minimum insurance is included)

Taken altogether, these are the main factors that will affect how much you can expect to pay for transport of a bike. As you can see, the information you need to supply is rather minimal: location, destination, and the specs of your motorcycle are pretty much all you’ll need. By simply inputting this information into an online motorcycle cost estimator or calculator, you can often get an accurate price quote in seconds! It is advisable that you contact shippers directly if there are any speciality services requested as that can be more difficult to get accurate pricing for with a cost estimator if it doesn’t include the full scope of their services.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
