What is The Cost of Shipping a Motorcycle Explained?

Trying to determine the cost of shipping a motorcycle is nearly impossible before receiving a quick online quote or over the phone estimate from a transporter. Luckily, it’s gotten easier to gather quotes over the years. Many transport companies provide online shipping calculators so their customers can quickly get an idea of what their shipping services might cost. For more honest quotes, it’s best to call in to the transport company to explain your shipping needs and provide more detailed information.

There are certain factors that help determine the exact cost of shipping a motorcycle.

Once these details are shared with the shipping company, a more precise estimate is given.

  • The make and model of the motorcycle
  • The age and condition of the vehicle
  • The distance between the pickup and drop off locations
  • The method of transport preferred and any other shipping options selected
  • Insurance fees and coverage provided
  • The time of year
  • Current fuel costs

Of course, you may see other charges on your final bill. This will depend on the nature of the transport and difficulty involving its delivery. For instance, bike’s that were poorly prepared or that feature customizations may increase your final shipping costs. Of course, your transport company’s representatives should have no problem breaking down these charges for you.
