In brief: Motorcycle Shippers is now offering ride-in-ride-out service at 35 U.S. locations around the country that is five days faster than standard service, and comes with a $100 discount. Price will depend on the motorcycle and the locations being shipped to/from, but a sample quote for a 2014 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide from California to New York came back at less than $900. Below is the full press release.


Motorcycle Shippers, which has transported more than 70,000 bikes around the world in 21 years, now offers no-hassle, ride-in-ride-out service at 35 U.S. locations that is five days faster than standard door-to-door service–and even comes with a $100 discount.

Dock-to-Dock
This dock-to-dock program allows customers to simply ride their bikes to a transport station–no preparation, such as draining fuel tanks, removing windshields, mirrors, saddlebags or other accessories–is required.

Riders are met by bike-handling experts who secure their machine to Motorcycle Shippers’ specially-designed skid with soft ties and unique ratchet straps that create a secure Perimeter of Protection®. Further protecting each bike is a $7000, zero-deductable insurance policy, upgradable for just $7 per $1000 of valuation.

Pick up is just as turn-key: Owners greet their bike at a local transport station, start it up and ride away.

Vacations, Events & Purchases
Whether sending their ride to a far-away vacation destination or rally, relocating it during a long-distance move or transporting a bike to its new owner after a winning auction bid, Motorcycle Shippers has the experience, infrastructure, human resources, shipping tools and heavy equipment to provide superior bike-transportation services.

No-Surprise Pricing and Multi-Bike Discount
A freshly updated website enables riders to get their shipment moving 24/7 using a simple online price-quote and booking system. From there, they’ll have a dedicated, bike-crazy customer-service rep available throughout the entire shipping process.

With Motorcycle Shippers, there are no variables, surcharges, taxes, residential charges or other fees hidden in fine print. There’s even a multi-bike discount of $50 per bike, per way.

An Official Motorcycle-Industry Partner
Motorcycle Shippers is the official shipping partner of BMW’s Motorcycle Owners of America group, Kawasaki’s ROK program and the 60,000-member-strong Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA).

A Brick-and-Mortar Powersports Business
Motorcycle Shippers is not a mere backwoods box-hauling company. It’s a subsidiary of leading powersports aftermarket product retailer JC Motors, an actual brick-and-mortar, parts & accessories business in Southern California.

Superior Software & Hardware
Motorcycle Shippers’ crew of lifelong motorcyclists designed the processes, hardware, training manuals and videos exclusively for its shipping fleet of 1100 big rigs, which are efficiently dispatched by a central logistics network. Fewer people telling more trucks where to go equals lower prices and faster service than its competitors can provide.

First-Class Big Rigs and Road Captains
Every truck is a fully enclosed, safe, secure, air-ride rig equipped to exclusively handle high-value products such as expensive motorcycles and delicate electronic equipment–not household items or pungent produce. Hauling bikes in a First-Class cabin, they securely lock out prying eyes, as well as wind, dirt, rain, sleet, hail, snow and harmful environmental elements.

At the helm of each rig is a professional, high-value-cargo operator–many of whom are motorcyclists themselves–trained with Motorcycle Shippers-produced materials.

Fully Licensed
America’s leading bike-transportation supplier since 1994, Motorcycle Shippers is duly licensed with the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
