How to Organise Motorcycle Shipping

Contact local shipping companies for a price quote. There are a number of national and regional companies that can ship your motorcycle, but you want to make sure you get a good deal from a reputable business. Start by looking up local shipping companies online or in the phone book. Once you find some you like, contact them to get a price quote on shipping your motorcycle. You should try to get at least three quotes to ensure you have an understanding of a reasonable price.

The whole process can be very time-consuming. Alternatively, you can list the details of your move on Shiply and let the delivery companies come to you. All of our companies have feedback from customers.

Choose between open and enclosed shipping options. Open and enclosed shipping options refer to the type of trailer your motorcycle will be housed in as it travels. Enclosed trailers will protect your motorcycle from the elements and from dirt and grime on the road. Open trailers offer less protection, but often come at a significantly lower price point. Consider the time of year and region your motorcycle will travel through when choosing between enclosed and open trailers. If your motorcycle will be exposed to extreme heat or inclement weather, you may choose an enclosed trailer option. Remember that an open trailer may be left out in the elements for hours or days, regardless of weather.

Identify the end location. Some vehicle transport companies offer door to door delivery service, while others expect you to come pick up your motorcycle at a designated location (terminal to terminal). Having the motorcycle shipped directly to your house may be more convenient, but will also likely cost more. Shipping your motorcycle to the closest major city will likely cost significantly less than shipping it to your door.

Ask about the insurance protecting the motorcycle en route. While the motorcycle is being transported by a shipping company, their insurance or bond should cover any damages to your bike, as well as theft. However, different companies have different policies and you may be left responsible for a deductible if something were to happen to your motorcycle. Ask to see the shipping company’s insurance agreement and inquire about what to do if damages were to occur. Make sure to ask about any deductible you may be responsible for if the motorcycle is damaged while in transit.

Inspect your motorcycle for signs of damage upon receipt. When your motorcycle arrives, look it over for any signs of damage and address it with the shipping company. The company may reimburse you for the cost of repairs or pay for the repairs at a designated facility, depending on the situation and their insurance coverage. Make sure to take pictures of the damage to substantiate your claim. Contact the shipping company directly to discuss the damages.Make sure to keep copies of any paperwork you complete regarding the damages until they have been repaired.

Once your vehicle arrives and you are happy with the move, sign it off. Don’t forget to visit Shiply and review the transport company, to help others when making their decision.

"Communication was great from the time I accepted the quote until the car was dropped off. In terms of the timeline, I was given a potential range for both how soon the car would be picked up and how many days it would be in transport."
