ATV and quad bike Transport
Get your quote now.
Transporting an ATV, or a quad bike, differs a bit from standard motorcycle transportation services in a few significant ways, and while ultimately your ATV will be crated and shipped just like a motorcycle, they are naturally larger, wider and heavier, and because of these differences you will see a difference in the prices of transporting an ATV as opposed to a standard motorcycle. That’s why we’ve created this page, so you can understand the differences when it comes to transporting your ATV as opposed to transporting a motorcycle.
ATV Shipping Crate
ATV’s, as mentioned, are wider, bigger and heavier than motorcycles, and as such they’re going to cost a bit more to ship. These differences are rather small – less than a hundred pounds, on average – but the increased weight does increase the price slightly. Make sure to have the specific year, make and model of your ATV or quad bike when you contact us for help transporting it, as we will use that information to calculate a more specific quote for you. Typically we won’t ask for the dimensions of your ATV, but it’s a good idea to have them just in case, especially if your ATV has been modified to be longer, wider or heavier for whatever reason (you never know what people will do to a vehicle!).
But your ATV will still be crated, just like a standard motorcycle, and it will usually be shipped either on the back of a flatbed transport carrier or in an enclosed container. The good thing is that there are carrier companies that operate these types of trucks that only take crated freight (i.e. motorcycles and other vehicles that are in the same type of family as them, including ATV’s). This actually helps us keep the prices for motorcycle and ATV transport down, because instead of searching for an enclosed or flatbed carrier that hauls cars around, we can contact these specific motorcycle shipping companies and be able to book your freight much more quickly and much cheaper than if we were to use an alternative carrier company that ships mainly cars and trucks. When it comes to transporting your ATV, we have you covered.

HOW AUTO SHIPPING WORKS
REQUEST A QUOTE
First, we post your vehicle through our network, including all National Dispatch Boards for Auto Transport. This is where all licensed auto transport carriers can see your vehicle is available for shipping.
BOOK YOUR ORDER
We present offers from FMCSA Licensed and Insured Carriers. When you accept an offer, we send your service agreement that guarantees the price, door-to-door service and 100% bumper to bumper insurance. There are never any hidden fees or charges, guaranteed.
VEHICLE IS PICKED UP
Not until you approve your carrier and final logistics is your deposit due. Your deposit is included in your quote and goes toward the total price. The remaining balance is due at time of delivery. Nothing gets done without your approval.
VEHICLE IS DELIVERED
Your driver will contact you prior to your pickup and delivery dates to schedule a time for loading and unloading. Once your vehicle reaches its destination, you do a final inspection of your vehicle and pay the driver the remaining balance. You and the driver both sign the Bill of Lading and each keep a copy.
