The Methods of Motorcycle Shipping Broken Down.
There are several of shipping methods that remain more favorable than others. These methods of transport include container shipping, enclosed shipping and open air shipping. Some of these methods offer more protection than others, but what one must remember is that the transport company carries insurance coverage for all vehicles being shipped.
- Enclosed transport includes putting the motorcycle within a large shipping container. Before it is placed inside the container along with other vehicles, it will be secured to a pallet. This keeps the bike hidden from poor weather and road conditions.
- Open air transport is a cost effective and safe method of transport. It is also the least expensive. This method includes securing the motorcycle on top of a flatbed trailer.
- Crated transport offers the most protection and security. The bike is placed within a small container. This container is so small that the motorcycle will have no room to shift around during its shipping process. The handlebars may need to be removed and extra preparation may be necessary.
It doesn’t matter which shipping method you choose. Rest assured that the motorcycle will be delivered safe and sound.
