Top 3 Reasons People Ship Motorcycles
#1 Online Purchases
Motorcycle Auctions & Dealerships
Online purchases are the #1 reason people use our motorcycle transport service. If you’re still in the research phase on purchasing a motorcycle, read our article “Deals on Motorcycles: Your Motorcycle Buying Guide“. It talks about finding motivated sellers.
Dealerships also fall into this group.
This normally happens when a Change of Command occurs; also known as PCS (Permanent Change of Station). Normally only one vehicle, usually the spouse’s car, is paid by the military. It’s more expensive to ship a car than a motorcycle so all active military personnel choose to ship their motorcycle because the cost is out of their own pocket.
Some people embark on new chapters in their lives and choose to move because of their job.
#3 Vacation/Road Trips
A lot of snowbirds from Canada go on cross-country road trips before the cold hits.
Also, military veterans who own Harley Davidsons do a lot of group rides to support a cause. Don’t forget, we offer a military discount upon request!
3 Motorcycle Shipping Services
This is by far the most popular service. We can pick up and drop off a motorcycle anywhere in the US, no matter how rural the location is. This service is normally more expensive than using terminals.
This is normally used by people who live in a city where we have a location. This service is great for road trips. If you are going on a road trip, end your trip in one of our 40+ locations. Drop off your motorcycle M-F during business hours, then catch a flight back home. We’ll handle your shipment. No need to pay for lodging, food, gas, wear and tear, etc.
This service is normally used when there is a group of motorcyclists who are planning out a trip, like a group ride.

Shipping Motorcycle Cost Factors
There are several factors that affect the cost of motorcycle shipping: distance, size, and weight of the bike, additional services such as storage, insurance coverage, and transit times. Generally, the further away you are shipping your bike and the bigger or heavier it is, the more expensive it will be to ship.
Benefits of Using AA Motorcycle Shipping
- Reliable and specialized motorcycle shippers since 1983
- Competitive rates for door-to-door motorcycle transport
- We only use trucks with liftgates. We do NOT use ramps to roll your motorcycle
- $7,000 insurance included
- We give instant quotes unlike other companies
- Instant online tracking of your shipment
- Our truckers also rife motorcycles so you’ll never get an inexperienced person handling your motorcycle if it’s going on a truck
Safety and Security for Motorcycle Shipping
When transporting a motorcycle, safety, and security will always be paramount. Our trucker will ensure the vehicle is secure in an enclosed truck. You should also make sure that your bike has been properly serviced and inspected before it is sent off for transportation. For added peace of mind, you might consider investing a few dollars more in insurance coverage so that you are financially protected if anything were to go wrong during the shipment process.
Non-Palletized Motorcycle Shipping
The motorcycle is strapped to strategically placed eye bolts on the floor of the truck. These shipments may take a little longer to load, but the in-transit times are shorter since the trucking routes are direct. No online tracking is provided. This service is only available on selective routes.
Daily same-day drop-off shipping is only available at one of our terminals. You must place an order first to get your booking number.
Palletized Motorcycle Shipping
This is the premium service, where your motorcycle is secured to a pallet and shipped in an enclosed air ride trailer. Generally shipping times range between 7-14 days. This service comes with online tracking.
This is what Palletized Motorcycle Shipping looks like:
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 Moto Transport Costs
Starting rates are around $400 for a short distance, like from Los Angeles to Phoenix.
If you live in a rural part of the US, our truckers can drive out to your neck of the woods without a problem. Just understand that diesel gas costs come into play.
If you are shipping to/from a large city, it’s easy access for our truckers.
Shipping to/from Canada and USA
If you need to ship a motorcycle to Canada from USA, or from USA to Canada, we can provide door-to-door transport service.
Contact us via live chat or read our US CANADA Motorcycle Shipping article for more information.
Includes US and Canadian Customs clearance.
What to Consider When Choosing a Motorcycle Transport Company
In your search, choose a company that has:
- A reliable and proven reputation for motorcycle shipping. Good reviews.
- Been specialized motorcycle shippers for many years (we’ve been in business since 1983)
- Competitive rates for door-to-door motorcycle transport
- State-of-the-art loading equipment and trucks
- Adequate motorcycle shipping insurance (FYI, AA Motorcycle Shipping covers each motorcycle with $7,000 in insurance, with additional insurance available)
- Instant quotes
- Instant online tracking of your shipment
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.
- 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 them.
- The gas tank should only have no more than 1/4 tank of gas.
Prior to the departure of your motorcycle carrier, it’s important to do a once-over inspection. 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. The driver will also take the time to look over your motorcycle for pre-existing damage. He will take his own pictures and make note of any findings within his report.
It’s all about FREEDOM!
