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.

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!
