Why Use an Auto Transporter to Move Your Bike?

Customers opt for our transport service for a number of reasons. Some are buying or selling a bike and need it delivered to its final destination. Others are starting a road trip or attending a rally on the other side of the country (or sometimes in a foreign country). In either case, the common element among our customers is that they expect their shipment delivered safely and without the wear and tear of long distance travel.

We offer several options to fit the needs of our two wheel enthusiasts. These vehicles can be shipped on a semi-truck, flat bed, or a trailer that can be pulled behind another vehicle. We also have enclosed transport and door-to-door delivery options available for motorcycles.

Shipping Options

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

  • Enclosed transport
  • Open air
  • Door to door
  • Terminal to terminal
  • Crated transport

enclosed transport

Enclosed transport

is the safest and most secure way to move your bike. Using enclosed transport ensures that your shipment will be protected from the elements and any potential storage or transport hazards.

open air transport

Open air transport

is also an option if you’re comfortable having your bike slightly exposed to weather and driving conditions. This method typically involves the bike being secured to a flatbed truck or a tow trailer.

door to door transport

Door to door transport

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

terminal to terminal transport

Terminal to terminal transport

is more cost-effective, but it can mean having to pick up your bike at a depot which is not always convenient, depending on your proximity to the terminal.

crated transport

Crated 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 important to keep in mind that crated transport does typically require some extra preparation. All fluids need to be drained, the battery needs to be disconnected and, in some cases, removal of mirrors and handlebars may be required.

Preparing for Shipping

Whatever option you choose, it is important to make sure that your bike is ready to be shipped when it’s time. This short list 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 existing damage for your records (photos recommended)

Read what other customers say about their experience with A-1 Auto Transport

I didn’t have time to make the trip myself so I used A-1 Auto Transport to help me ship my bike to Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. When I got off the plane, my bike was already waiting for me. This was truly a headache-free experience and I can’t recommend using this service enough.

I frequently purchase Harleys and other collectible motorcycles to add to my collection, and whenever I want to use a shipper I always come to this website. Makes my life so easy.
