How Much to Ship a Motorcycle to California?

We can’t say with certainty until you give us more information. You will generally pay between $400 and $800 to ship a motorcycle 1,000 miles. For shorter shipments, the price is lower, between $180 to $300. Always call us first to get a more accurate price. That’s because many factors influence what you pay, such as whether an on-road vehicle or an off-road vehicle.

The cost of shipping a motorcycle to California can vary depending on a few factors. These include the size and weight of your bike, the distance that it is being shipped, the type of company you choose to ship it with, and their insurance policies. Always make sure to do your research and find out what is included in a shipper’s quote before committing.

3 Motorcycle Shipping Services


We have 47 locations. While our most popular service is door-to-door shipping, using one of our terminals is the 2nd most popular service. You can either drop off or pick up your motorcycle at one of our locations.

Door-to-Door Transport

We ship motorcycles to people’s homes every day. No matter how remote or rural you are, we can provide motorcycle shipping services to your door.


Most people who use terminal-to-terminal shipping services are for group rides. This is a great service for a 1-way road trip where a motorcyclist finishes his trip at one of our locations and ships it back home.

Choosing a California Motorcycle Shipping Company

When choosing a company to ship your motorcycle, it is important to consider their reputation and abilities in transporting motorcycles. You also want to make sure they are providing the best possible rates and services for you. Research your options, compare prices, and read customer reviews before making your decision. It’s also a good idea to contact the shipping companies directly with any questions or concerns you may have about the shipment process.

We offer:

  • Safe, secure shipping
  • State-of-the-art loading equipment and trucks
  • Competitive rates for door-to-door motorcycle transport
  • Instant quotes online or via phone
  • Instant online tracking of your shipment in some cases
  • Reliable and specialized motorcycle shipping since 1983

Two Kinds of Motorcycle Shipping

Our premium service is palletized motorcycle shipping. This is when your motorcycle is secured to a pallet/skid and loaded onto a truck with a forklift. While this service uses the utmost care in transport where your motorcycle is shipped in an enclosed truck, the other option is non-palletized (our standard service) where your motorcycle is transported in a trailer. Both are safe options. If you’re going to ship a motorcycle to California (or from California), either method will work. When you use our calculator, if there is only one option on the price, that means it’s ONLY Palletized.

Palletized Motorcycle Shipping

ship motorcycle to california on pallet

Your motorcycle gets top-notch care and attention with our palletized shipping option. We secure your bike to a pallet and ship it in an enclosed air ride trailer. The shipment takes between seven and 14 days.

Online tracking is available with this service. This is good for owners of specialty or high-end cycles and vintage or classic bikes.

  • Door-to-Door
  • Door-to-Terminal
  • Terminal-to-Terminal
  • Terminal-to-Door

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.

Non-Palletized Motorcycle Shipping

ship motorcycle to california in a trailer

This is our standard shipping method. It is less expensive compared to palletized shipping. Your motorcycle will be secured to the trailer.

These shipments take a bit longer to load, as the in-transit times are shorter since the trucking routes through the main cities are more direct. Your cycle is strapped to eye bolts on the floor of the truck. We do not offer online tracking with this method.
