Ways to Ship a Motorcycle.

 Enclosed Transport.

This is known for being the most secure way to ship a motorcycle, but it’s also the most expensive form of shipping. Enclosed transport means that your bike will be loaded onto an enclosed trailer and secured inside. It will be protected against all driving conditions and the elements.

Open Air Transport.

If you are comfortable with your bike being exposed to the elements and driving conditions, consider this shipping solution. This is the most common way to transport a bike from one destination to the next. This shipping solution is also the most common way to transport a bike.

Crated Transport.

This method involves putting your bike in a wooden crate, securing it to a pallet and loading it onto a truck. Keep in mind that created transport requires some preparation. You must drain all fluids and in some cases, you may have to remove the mirrors and handlebars.
