Picked up bike Wednesday in Los Angeles CA & arrived on Sunday in North Carolina. I'm pleased.Response from the ownerThank you for the business Angelo Dua AbudiabDua Abudiab ★★★★★ Easy booking, super responsive to my questions as I was shipping a motorcycle for the first time at the end of a cross-country trip from their warehouse. The process was smooth with an easy moto drop-off (riding moto onto a pallet was exciting), clear instructions, and a tracker as I watched moto make its way back to my doorstep.It was unloaded off the pallet and rolled up to my driveway in the same condition I left it. Super appreciate this service and am using it again for my trip this year!Response from the ownerThanks for shipping with us. J PJ P ★★★★★ Shipped motorcycle on-time and literally door-to-door - thanks!Response from the ownerThanks Gary MGary M ★★★★☆ AA Motorcycle Shipping did a superb job of delivering my bike half-way across the US. The key takeaways are that my bike arrived without a scratch and absolutely on-time. Kudos to the teams.My only critique is that the collection truck and delivery truck both were a total mess and the bike had a fair layer of grime covering it upon arrival. Still, I must report I'm satisfied with the results.Response from the ownerThank you for the business. Jay BehrJay Behr ★★★★★ Instant quote feature was just as described, instantly provided, and was really helpful. Was nice to know how much it would cost to get a bike shipped from current location to end destination.Response from the ownerThank you for the business Jay Dori VBDori VB ★★★★★ I've used them twice now, to move my limited edition, perfect condition motorcycle. They were speedy, professional , affable and my motorcycle arrived in perfect condition. I highly recommend.Response from the ownerThanks for the business Dori Shawn RimmerShawn Rimmer ★★★★★ I am very happy with the entire experience of shipping a custom painted Harley from Colorado to Florida!

I had no idea what to do to get the motorcycle home from Florida or anybody who did this to I found your service...thx again for your job well done!Loren ZawodnyLoren Zawodny ★★★★★ This was my first experience shipping a motorcycle cross-country. I chose this company because they had transparent service pricing and company information on their website. I also appreciate that when I called, I got a real person, not a call center. Nearly all motorcycle shippers are brokers meaning other service contractors do the actual work. However the tracking of my shipment was very easy using their website. My motorcycle was picked up and delivered on time and in great condition. The pick up and delivery were both very professionally done. I appreciate that this was enclosed shipping on a pallet. I am happy with my experience, and I plan to use them again next time I ship a vehicle.Response from the ownerThank you Loren for sharing. Moises IavaroneMoises Iavarone ★★★★★ Second time I use AA Motorcycles transport, my two bikes made it super safe, love the you can track where you bike if going. I will use them again for sure.Response from the ownerThanks for the business and the trust.

3 Motorcycle Shipping Services

Terminal-to-Door/Door-to-Terminal

With a network of 47 locations, our most in-demand service is door-to-door shipping, closely followed by our second most popular option, which involves utilizing our terminals. At these terminals, you have the flexibility to either drop off or pick up your motorcycle as per your preference.

Door-to-Door Transport

Every day, we deliver motorcycles directly to people’s residences. Regardless of how remote or rural your location may be, we can offer motorcycle shipping services right to your doorstep.

Terminal-to-Terminal

Terminal-to-terminal shipping services are primarily utilized by groups of riders. This service proves especially advantageous for one-way road trips, allowing motorcyclists to finish their journeys at one of our locations and arrange for the shipment of their bikes back home.

Choosing a Iowa Motorcycle Shipping Company

  • Fast quotes online or over the phone
  • Affordable rates for door-to-door motorcycle transport
  • State-of-the-art loading equipment and trucks to safely transport your vehicle

Since 1983, we have been your specialized motorcycle shipper throughout the United States.

Two Kinds of Motorcycle Shipping

AA Motorcycle Shipping offers palletized shipping to all 48 states in the continental United States, including Iowa. However, we do not offer unpalletized shipping to most states, and that includes Iowa. Instead, this option is only reserved for a few high-volume, selective routes.

Palletized Motorcycle Shipping

ship motorcycle to california on pallet

You can choose this option if you want the ultimate in protection for your specialty or high-end motorcycles, vintage cycles, or classic bikes. In this case, your bike will remain enclosed within our air ride trailers, safely secured to pallets in the truck. Online tracking is available with this service, with shipments taking about seven to 14 days.

  • 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 not offered in Iowa, but we can go over briefly what it entails. Basically, these shipments feature shorter in-transit times and take longer to load because the trucking routes are more direct. Your bike would be secured to eye bolts on the truck floor. No online tracking comes with this option.
