We want you to be informed of your exact motorcycle shipping cost. We don’t believe in hidden fees or charges. Our  chart is a quick way to estimate your price, but there are added services and factors that could affect your price, such as including a motorcycle trailer or requesting a residential pickup. We also want you to know how you can save! We have motorcycle shipping discounts for rallies, multi-vehicles, military and more. Make sure to read the “fine print” below so you can be informed of exactly what your shipment will cost and our delivery policies. We also welcome you to call us at 1-888-HAULBIKES or contact us online for your exact quote on your shipment.

* Disclaimer: Due to substantially increasing fuel costs, there will be a fuel surcharge added to all quotes and orders until further notice. The fuel surcharge amount will be based on the National Average, as provided by the Department of Energy (DOE). This is not reflected in the rate calculator, but will be added when your order is verified by a HaulBikes customer service representative. 

Any shipment booked or scheduled, and then cancelled, for ANY reason, will be subject to a cancellation fee of $100. This is regardless if the truck has left on that specific route or not. Once a spot is reserved, we can’t sell it to anyone else. The ONLY exception is if a shipment is cancelled within 48 hours of receipt of contract. In this case, the cancellation fee will be $25 to cover processing fees.

Motorcycle shipping prices are based on standard bike specs, which occupy ONE standard space on our trailer.  The standard space is 4’ x 9’.”  There is an extra charge for bikes with sidecars, trikes, choppers, ATV’s, personal watercraft (jet-skis), go-karts, etc. – basically any unit that EXCEEDS the standard space (4’ x9’) on our trailer. Please call 1-888-HAULBIKES for an exact price.

Notes about special vehicles: Individual sidecars only can be shipped if they are on dollies. Jet skis have to be shipped with your trailer (single trailer only).

  • Sidecars and Motorcycle Trailers that are by themselves would be charged the normal rate for ONE standard space. Individual sidecars only can be shipped if they are on dollies.
