Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We offer different motorcycle shipping methods, which include:
- Rail transport: Economical but slower means of transport. You may have to use road transport as well, in case you will not be able to pick your bike from the railway terminal.
- Road transport: Most common means of transport. Your bike may be hauled onto a motorcycle trailer, open truck or flat-bed truck.
- Air transport: Fastest but most expensive method of shipping. We do our best to ensure that you will get the best air freight charges.
- Water transport: Suitable for port-to-port delivery.
For each method of transport, you may choose if you would like to use enclosed shipping, open air shipping or crated shipping. Also door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal are the available delivery options.
