How to Move a Motorcycle
Moving a motorcycle long distance requires some prep work. You'll need to find a moving company that's equipped to move bikes, get the supplies you'll need to get it ready to load, and prepare it for moving.
U-Pack® is a great solution for moving a motorcycle, especially if you're moving household goods too. We make it easy to load, easy to secure, and you don't have to drive the moving truck!

Car Shipping Tips
If you’re planning a long-distance move and trying to figure out whether you should hire a car shipping company or not, the information below was designed to help.
First, let me point out that one of the great things about moving your household goods with U-Pack is that you don’t have to drive the moving truck – U-Pack does that for you. Instead you can get to your new home in your own vehicle, or catch a plane – whatever works best for you. Occasionally, people move with U-Pack and drive their own car, but still have a vehicle they need to ship. Though U-Pack isn’t able to transport vehicles, when customers have a need for auto shipping services, we refer them to a company called Auto & Boat Relocation Services.
If you choose to ship your car, here are some tips that should prove helpful:

Shipping Motorcycles and Other Outdoor Equipment
When we think about moving, most of us think about packing the things inside the house and oftentimes forget about the things we keep outside
and in the garage ... If you've got a lawnmower, weed eater, hedge trimmer, leaf blower or snow blower
make sure you plan on how you're going to pack and load them. If any of these items are gasoline powered, you'll want to drain the fuel before you load them
otherwise, you run the risk of gas leaking onto your items or, at the very least, your stuff smelling like gas. And don't forget – it also makes your shipment flammable. For the safety of your items, other items that may be on the same trailer and ABF's drivers and equipment, we require that the fuel be removed.
