The City of Dayton is one of the more populated cities in Ohio. With this being said, there are many nearby transport companies providing specialized services to those with motorcycles in need of delivery. Find a company that has positive online reviews and ratings from previous customers. They should also offer services for motorcycles that allow you to feel comfortable with the shipping process.
Professional transports will only assure the bike’s condition and that the mileage stays the same. These benefits are what entice so many dealerships and manufacturers to take advantage of transport services. Of course, the discounts often offered to those shipping multiple motorcycles at once are also a sweet advantage.
What Is Open Air Shipping?
You may immediately take notice that most transport companies offer open air shipping services. This method of transport is often the cheapest. However, it leaves the bikes open to all of the conditions faced out on the road. Fortunately, this is rarely a concern and if something were to happen, insurance coverage will assure all necessary repairs or replacements.
Many people choose this method of shipping due to its low cost and often secure delivery. It is also the method offered to those who need to ship multiple motorcycles to a single location. Any other shipping methods offered are usually enclosed and will offer a little more protection at a higher cost.
It is important that after the motorcycle’s delivery has been made, the bike’s condition is inspected. This is process is easiest when pictures of the motorcycle were taken prior to its shipping process. The pictures can then be used for reference during the final inspection. If any harm is noticed, inform the delivery driver. They will fill out a report and have you sign it in confirmation. This will then be used when an insurance claim is made.
