To get quoted on shipping services for your motorcycle, you’ll have to first decide on a few reputable transporters that you’d like to contact. You can look online for some of the best motorcycle shipping companies near your home in the U.S.
Read customer reviews and testimonials to make sure the transporter maintains a positive reputation.
Calling In for a Quote - For a Faster, More Honest Quote.
It’s always a good idea to collect a few quotes. Compare a few companies’ prices, services, and characteristics. Most motorcycle transporters offer several ways to get an estimate for shipping services. Getting a quote by phone is by far the most personal. Calling each transporter makes it possible to ask questions which are an important part of the screening process. They should have helpful, friendly customer service. In minutes of giving the transporter certain information, you should receive a quote.
Filling Out the Submission Form - The Best Way to Avoid Calling Around.
If you wish to gather quotes online, some transport companies will have a form on their website. Fill out this submission form and send it in. Make sure you answered all questions with as much detail as possible. The company will normally get your quote to you through email within 48 business hours.
Using a Motorcycle Shipping Calculator - For a Quick Ballpark Figure.
If a motorcycle shipping company has a service calculator on their website, this is a great way to get a quick round-a-bout estimate on their services. Of course, the price received won’t be the most accurate. It is more or less there for customers to get a better idea of what shipping costs to expect.
