Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We use the following motorcycle shipping methods to transport motorcycles.
- Shipping via water: This is a cheaper option for overseas shipping as compared to shipping via air.
- Shipping via rail: This is an efficient method of transportation. The bike can be picked at the railway terminal or delivered to the owner.
- Shipping via road: This is a reliable means of transportation in which the bike may be hauled using a motorcycle trailer, open truck or a flatbed truck.
- Shipping via air: This is the fastest and yet the most expensive transportation method. However, we always get the best air freight charges for you.
Deliveries may be done using the following options: Door-to-door delivery or terminal-to-terminal delivery. The choices of the shipping method and delivery option that you may select will depend on your preference as well as your budget.
