Different Transport Services Explained.
Door to door services are perhaps one of the most desired services offered through transport companies. When you opt for door to door, the transport company will come to retrieve the bike or bikes for the transport. They will then drop the motorcycle off at the address specified by you or whoever set up the transport.
Terminal to terminal services are cheaper than door to door. When you decide to go with terminal to terminal services, you will need to drop off the motorcycle at a particular location and then pick it up from another terminal nearby the location it is being relocated to. This means that you will need transportation to get to the terminal for the motorcycle’s pickup.
Expedited services are a wonderful option. If you must quickly get the cruiser to a new location, then expedited services are something you will want to inquire about. This service means that the transport company puts your motorcycle as high priority. Guaranteed delivery is another service often offered which means the motorcycle will arrive but the agreed date.
Insurance coverage is something that all qualified and responsible transport companies offer to their customers. Unfortunately, your regular insurance policy will not cover a motorcycle while it is in the care of the transport business. Therefore, it is best to purchase the insurance through the company. Even though they are trained to securely transport the motorcycle, if any damages should occur, the company’s insurance will have it covered.
Open air shipping is the most common and economical form of transport. You often see open air shipping haulers loaded with vehicles on the highways or turnpike. This is how many transport companies ship vehicles. It is safe, reliable, quick and inexpensive. For motorcycles, this is a very commonly chosen method of shipping.
