Methods Used to Transport a Motorcycle.

- Open Air Transportation- This is a perfectly viable means of transportation for anyone that doesn't mind their motorcycle being slightly exposed to driving conditions and the elements.
- Door to Door- The motorcycle is picked up at a specific location and delivered directly to its next destination.
- Terminal to Terminal- This is a cost effective means of transporting a motorcycle, but not the most convenient. If the customer doesn't live near the depot where the bike has been delivered some traveling may be required.
