Iowa is full of long desolate roads as far as the eye can see. Motorcyclists tend to love the roads that Iowa has to offer to see as they are perfect for long trips alone on the bike, or even traveling side by side with other motorcycling buddies. Considering that Iowa is known as the land between two rivers, there are also long winding roads along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers that are also perfect for motorcyclists as well.
Different Methods of Motorcycle Shipment
There are several ways in which a person can choose to have their motorcycle shipped to Iowa. Although these methods vary greatly, they all have relatively standard requirements with the exception of crated shipping.
Crated shipping will require that the bike is drained of all fluids. The battery must also be disconnected. The bike is then put on a wooden pallet inside of a crate. This is typically the safest way to ship a motorcycle which is why many choose this option.
Other Shipping Methods Include:
- Enclosed Transport - Safe and secure way of shipping. The motorcycle is placed inside of an enclosed container and shipped.
- Open Air Transport - The motorcycle is placed on a trailer. This allows for road conditions and weather to possibly cause damage to the bike if the conditions are poor.
- Door to Door - The motorcycle is picked up from a specific location and dropped off at a specific location.
- Terminal to Terminal - This is a cheaper option, but it requires the bike to be picked up from and dropped off at a terminal which may or may not be in close proximity.
