    “Dealing with AA- Motorcycle Transport was very easy. Quote was fast as was the on-line paperwork. They picked up on time and within a few days of sending the contract back. It was easy to track and my motorcycle was delivery in a shorter time than I expected. It didn’t have a scratch on it. The pickup driver and the two delivery drivers were very personable and professional. I would definitely use them again.”

    “Happy with service. Motorcycle was picked up within a couple of days of scheduling and delivery several days later in a reasonable time frame. I felt cost was also reasonable. I liked the fact that you can go to there website and find out the status of where the trucker is and when they’ll be delivering the motorcycle.”

    “1AA was recommended to me through the dealer from which I purchased my bike.
    It’s my first time shipping a motorcycle and without others to compare, I would say I am very satisfied with the service for the following reasons:
    Booking was simple;
    Notification of pick up was prompt;
    Pick up was on time; and
    Delivery took less time than I had expected.

    Overall, I would recommend 1AA to others”

    How to Ship Your Motorcycle

    You’ll first need to choose a motorcycle transporter that fits your unique needs. Once you’ve done your homework on that, you’ll have to schedule the pick-up and drop-off details to get a quote. Once you get a price you like, book the shipment and pay. Keep in touch with your provider until the day of service to ensure you have all details covered and you’re entirely prepared for the process.

    Professional motorcycle shippers can take the stress out of shipping a bike because they have the experience and specialized equipment to get the job done right.

    How Much Does it Cost?

    On average, it costs between $400 and $600 to ship a motorcycle about 1,000 miles. For shorter shipments, you’re looking at a cost of about $180 to $300. Price will also depend on what you’re shipping, whether it’s an on-road vehicle or off-road vehicle. Check out what we ship here.


    Choosing a motorcycle carrier brings with it many considerations.

    Generally, you have a couple of options: open trailer or enclosed. Open means your bike may share a truck with several other vehicles and will be exposed to the elements for the journey. Closed means your bike is inside the truck, or even in its own container.

    You’ll also want to make sure you understand what door-to-door shipping means. In a nutshell, if you live in a spacious neighborhood with no overhanging branches or restrictions, we can pick up your motorcycle at your door and deliver it to the door step of the next destination. However, if you live on a narrow, crowded, busy street, a dead end, or in a community that places restrictions on the types of trucks that can inhabit it, we may have to meet you at a nearby parking lot to make the exchange.

    Motorcycle Shipping Tips

    Before shipping your motorcycle, it’s important to be prepared for what will happen. There are a few things you need to take care of before that happens. Here are some tips to keep in mind.
    • Research motorcycle shipping companies, getting at least three estimates from three different companies.
    • Decide between open and closed shipping. Going more than 500 miles? It’s recommended you go with enclosed shipping which provides much better protection for your motorcycle.
    • Wash your bike and give it a thorough once-over to take note of any existing damage before you ship it.
    • Take out all personal items and deactivate any alarms that may be on it.
    • Kick the tires to make sure they are adequately inflated.
    • Put the bike in neutral.
    • For crate shipping, drain the gas tank and take out the battery.

    Prior to the arrival of your motorcycle carrier, it’s important to do a once-over to protect your motorcycle during the shipping process. Take photos of the state of your bike and inspect for any marks or dents that are already there. Then, you can better compare the condition later, and if there is a dispute, you can show the photos to the insurance company. It’s very rare that a bike is damaged during transport, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

    Be early for pickup. The driver will also take the time to look over your motorcycle for pre-existing damage. He will make note of any findings within his report.


    At the delivery site, come prepared. You’ll need to bring the carrier’s preferred method of payment. Then, take the time to carefully inspect your motorcycle for damage. As said above, you’ll most likely find it has arrived in perfect condition. In the event of a dispute or claim, follow your carrier’s instructions on how to file a complaint. It usually takes a few weeks for insurance claims to be reviewed and settled.
