Someone who has never had to transport a motorcycle before may know nothing about how the process actually works. The most cost efficient way to get a motorcycle delivered is to contact a professional shipping company out of Houlton.
They will handle the entire process of shipping without causing any damage to the bike along the way.
Even the most secure shipping methods can be purchased at low costs. Almost all of the transporters services should be budget friendly. For long distance shipping processes, it is recommended that the bike is transported in an enclosed trailer. The shipper usually has a few stops to make on their route so the shipping process could take up to five days. Being inside of an enclosed trailer gives the bike four walls of protection against vandalism and other outside hazards.
Most Sought After Shipping Options.
- Open Air Shipping - Over short distances, open air transportation is a cost efficient and reliable way to get a bike delivered to its location safely.
- Container Transport - This method of transportation is where the customer will have to deliver their bike to a terminal depot, and pick it up at its destination.
- Door to Door Delivery - A shipper will come to the residence of the customer or convenient nearby parking lot, pick up the motorcycle and have it delivered to their door at its final destination.
Take advantage of the insurance shipping companies’ offer, if they offer any. If the company does not have insurance, do not use that company. In order for a shipping service to legally transport bikes they must have cargo and liability insurance to provide compensation incase damages should occur.
