Located in the northwestern part of Pennsylvania, Erie shares a beautiful coastline with the lake it is named after. Close to other major cities, Erie has a lot to catch your attention. Motorcyclists love having the freedom of cruising on the long roads along the shore of Lake Erie and a ton of different things to do within the area.
To have a motorcycle transported to Erie, Pennsylvania contact several companies within the area. There will be plenty of trustworthy transport companies to choose from, and having your bike shipped to the city is much safer than trying to take it there yourself. Luckily, motorcycle transport is rather inexpensive and easy to take advantage of.
Motorcycle Transporting Tips and Advice.
When you have finally selected a company, ask them what methods of transport for motorcycles that they have to offer. Some of the transport methods are best chosen for shorter distances of travel and favorable weather and road condition.
Open air shipping leaves the motorcycle open to the possibility of all elements. They motorcycle is placed on top of a flatbed trailer for its transport. If the road conditions or weather isn’t favorable, the bike could be subjected to minor damage. However, this is a cheaper method of transport and many transport companies will offer insurance during the shipping process.
Enclosed and crated shipping methods are among the top two most popular choices. These methods both ship the bike within an enclosed container. Crated shipping is a bit more detailed and will require a bit more preparation, but it is the safest form of motorcycle transport.

- Wash the motorcycle.
