- Daytona Beach, FL to Philadelphia, PA: $375
- San Francisco, CA to Marietta, GA: $800
All of these prices are dependant on a few factors. Some factors that can affect the cost of shipping a motorcycle across the country include:
- Distance:: The farther your motorcycle travels, the cost will be higher based on fuel and wear and tear to the truck it’s on.
- Size and Weight: The larger and heavier your motorcycle is, the more room it will take up in the truck. Carriers typically save you money by hauling more than one bike at a time.
- Location (for delivery and pickup): If you live in a rural area, chances are your cost may be a little higher as it’s less likely the carrier can pick up or deliver another shipment in the area and may have to dead-head to the next location.
