Your Shipping Options To Transport Motorcycles

When transporting a motorcycle, you should consider several motorcycle carrier options from the best motorcycle shipping company to determine which method is best for you. Here are some of the options available from a motorcycle mover:

  • Enclosed motorcycle transport
  • Open-air
  • Door to door
  • Terminal to terminal
  • Crated motorcycle transport
Motorcycles (Domestic)

Enclosed Transport

Enclosed motorcycle transport is the safest and most secure way to move your bike. Using enclosed, reliable auto shipping ensures that your shipment will be protected from the elements and potential storage or transport hazards. Enclosed transport ensures positive customer reviews!

Motorcycles (Domestic)

Open Air Transport

Open-air auto shipping is also an option if you're comfortable having your bike slightly exposed to weather and driving conditions. This method typically involves the bike is secured to a flatbed truck or a tow trailer.

Motorcycles (Domestic)

Door to Door Transport

It is precisely what it sounds like. We pick up your vehicle at the specified location and deliver it directly to its destination.

Motorcycles (Domestic)

Terminal to Terminal Transport

This auto shipping method is more cost-effective, but it can mean picking up your bike at a depot which is not always convenient, depending on your proximity to the terminal.

Motorcycles (Domestic)

Crated Transport

Crated motorcycle transport involves securing your bike to a pallet and loading it onto a truck in a wooden crate. This is a popular option, but it's essential to remember that crated motorcycle transport typically requires extra preparation. All fluids need to be drained; the battery needs to be disconnected, and, in some cases, you may require the removal of mirrors and handlebars.


Preparing for Auto Shipping

Whatever option you choose, it is essential to ensure that your bike is ready to be shipped when it's time. This shortlist covers the basics:

  • Clean the bike of dirt and deposits
  • Remove any accessories or loose items
  • Disable the alarm system if it has one
  • Check fluids, tire pressure and battery
  • Gas reading should not be above 1/4 tank before transport
  • Inspect and document any pre-existing damage for your records (photos recommended)

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!
