motorcycle transport quoteWhile the idea of riding a motorcycle across the country might seem thrilling, there are times when it might be unnecessary, and of course more of a task than you’re really prepared to do. That being said, getting a motorcycle transport quote from a professional shipping company might be the best course of action that you could possible take, and for good reason. For one thing, traveling by bike is going to unnecessarily harsh in the winter time, and to top it all off, if you’re trying to move, you really don’t want to drive your bike to the final destination, only to have to find a way back so you can finish the job. Quite frankly, there are better things for you to do. That being said, finding good motorcycle carriers to help you get the job done will be within your best interest.

What are Motorcycle Carriers?

The first thing you need to know, is that a carrier is just like any other freight transport. Your ‘item’ is loaded into a truck, and it is transported to the destination. The idea of course is for it to make it to that destination without any serious problems or interruptions, and for that reason it really comes down to the quality of the carrier that you are using. In addition to that you need to answer the following questions:

  • * How much is the bike worth?
  • * Does it have any significant damage?
  • * Is it a classic?
  • * Are there any special considerations that need to be made before shipping?
  • * How heavy is it?

Once you have answered these questions you will be ready to move on to the more important business of shipping. Keep in mind that with some carriers, the weight of the motorcycle will affect the cost of shipping, so always make sure you’re estimating your weight properly.

Delivery Details

The majority of companies will facilitate a pickup of your vehicle within 1-5 business days, though the length of the shipment will depend heavily upon the distance between the initial location and the destination. Something to keep in mind is that delivery drivers are well versed in the different routes needed to reach the destination, and they will therefore be able to plot the most efficient course. That being the case, you will find that they are able to avoid construction, towns, and other obstacles that might slow them down. In addition to that they are familiar with all of the laws applicable to motorcycle transport companies during transit. Keep in mind that these laws can change from area to area, making it necessary for truck drivers to be well aware. This knowledge combined with their considerable driving skills makes it much easier for them to provide faster shipping.

Multi-Bike Discounts and a Smooth Ride

Motorcycle ShippingIn some cases, motorcycle shipping companies will offer a multi-bike discount, meaning those shipping more than one motorcycle will be able to take advantage of significant discounts, giving themselves a huge advantage. Generally, bikes are packed onto special pallets that are designed to fit each bike individually. Your shipping company needs to understand that not all bikes are created equal, and for this reason, different shipping methods need to be employed. In addition to that, the vast majority of these trucks use air-ride suspension so that the bikes experience a much smoother ride. All in all, this is a great way to make sure that your bike is getting to the destination on time and intact.

If you’re ready to move and need a great way to ensure that your bike, classic or standard, is getting to the final destination without a scratch, now would be a great time to give us a call and make sure that it is ready for the long road ahead. It’s not nearly as difficult as you think, and it’s one more worry off your mind in the heat of moving.


Reviews from Our Customers

“My car has arrived! The driver delivered about 4:00 pm this afternoon. Considering I called you about this auto transport move on Friday morning and it is now delivered over 500 miles away and it is only Sunday, this was an amazingly quick move. I have purchased several cars online, but I have never had auto shipping experience that was this fast and affordable. Thanks for making this move a great experience. I will call you on all future moves.” – Roy
"We used Door to Door to move our mini-van from PA to TX. I selected Door to Door after a few weeks of online research and contact with over 15 different car transport companies. I eliminated every company with poor reviews and poor BBB ratings. Door to Door met my initial criteria and I was pleased with my phone conversations with JR. They assigned a driver who was courteous, professional and just plain nice. We felt very comfortable with the driver and knew he would deliver the van on-time and without issue. We were very pleased overall and would not hesitate to use Door to Door again when we need car shipping in the future." - Jennifer
"Our vehicle transport experience with Door To Door Auto Transport was very positive. The couple that actually transported the car were very friendly and kept in touch with us so that we knew exactly when the car would be picked up. If I ever need a vehicle shipping company again, I will call Door To Door Auto Transport." – Shari
"I used Door To Door Auto Transport simply because of their good reviews. I was very nervous to transport my car but I did not have time to deliver my daughter’s car to her. This was my first experience shipping a vehicle and I was impressed! They picked the car up and delivered it earlier than I planned! They picked the car up on Thursday and they delivered it at 1:00a.m. Sunday instead of Monday during working hours. We did not expect this and it turned out to be good for us. The transport overall was very fast. Lola was very good and pleasant. The price was just right." – MyLe
"Linda was very nice and genuine and Door to Door did what they said they would do. The transactions were quick and easy and the driver actually arrived much earlier than I expected. Auto shipping across the country is expensive, so regardless of price (which this was one of the cheaper ones I found), if you want the job done well, go with Door to Door!" – Reggie
