Professional motorcycle transporters take the hassle out of shipping a bike by relying on experience and their equipment. No more trying to push a Ducati up an aluminum ramp into your friend's truck bed only to have the ramp slip.
The average motorcycle shipment costs $400 - 600 and travels over 1000 miles. For shorter shipments the range is $180 - 300.

Before your carrier arrives, prepare your motorcycle for transport. Look over our guide for a few helpful steps that will protect your motorcycle during the shipping process. At pickup, be early and be prepared. The driver will look over your motorcycle for pre-existing damage and note this on a report. Though, we recommend taking your own high-quality photos of your motorcycle before shipment. If there is a dispute at the time of delivery these photos can be used as evidence for the insurance provider.
At delivery, be ready with your carrier's preferred method of payment and carefully inspect your motorcycle for damage. More than likely, your motorcycle will arrive in perfect condition. If there is a dispute or claim, follow your carrier's instructions on filing a complaint. Any insurance claims should be reviewed and settled within a few weeks.
