Many people prefer to transport their own bike if they have a trip planned that includes their motorcycle. After all, most bikes are fairly easy enough to tow on your own, or even drive the bike itself if the trip isn’t too far. There is, however, a third option that a lot of people forget to consider, which is hiring a transport company to ship a bike for them. While it may surprise some, motorcycle transport is one of our more popular services, especially for long distance transport and destinations that can be tricky to get to. Here are some of the reasons that our customers love shipping their bikes with us.
One of the biggest advantages of shipping motorcycles is that it saves you the time. If you’re driving to your destination and don’t want to be slowed down by towing a bike behind you, or if you just prefer not to have to do it yourself, shipping is a great option. Many of our customers like to ship their bike or bikes to where they’re headed and just hop on a plane knowing it will be there when they arrive. While it can be a great time to hit the open road on a motorcycle, we don’t always have the time or luxury of making the trip ourselves.
The convenience of having your bike transported goes hand in hand with the time savings. You don’t have to worry about loading, securing, unloading, crating, or any of the number of other things that go into transporting a bike on your own. Door-to-door transport is especially convenient for those customers who want to have their bike picked up and delivered to a specific address without having to worry about the logistics of getting the bike transported on their own.

Another reason that people often choose our affordable motorcycle shipping services is that it saves them from putting extra miles on the bike. Excess miles may not be a concern for everyone that rides, but if you take frequent trips and like to hop on the bike during your travels, shipping is a good option that won’t tax the bike with unnecessary highway miles during the vacation. If you happen to be taking multiple bikes with you on a trip, shipping makes even more sense. Shipping a bike isn’t that expensive to begin with and if you’re shipping more the one, the savings stretch even farther, making it a good financial decision as well if you have an eye towards saving some money.
And finally, we get to insurance coverage. A lot of people are surprised to find that insurance coverage is included in the cost of shipping a bike, which is another reason it makes sense from a safety standpoint. Not only are you not putting miles on the bike, but there’s little to no risk of an accident, and you’re still covered in the rare event that something does happen. In addition to the basic coverage that is required by law, you can also increase the coverage amount if you’re shipping a high value or antique motorcycle, just to ensure that it’s completely covered.
