What Shipping Method Should I Choose for My Bike?
A lot of shipping customers find it difficult to select a shipping service designed for motorcycle transport. It is best to be familiar with each service before you select how your motorcycle will be transported. There are three main forms of motorcycle shipping. These methods include open air, enclosed and crated transport.
- Open air transport is the least expensive shipping method. The bike is fastened tightly to a flatbed trailer and transported. Although the bike is left open to the possibility of poor weather and other potentially hazardous elements, it is rare that the vehicle is ever harmed. Insurance carried by the transport company provides extra protection.
- Enclosed transport provides a more secure shipping process. The bike will be secured to a pallet and placed within a large shipping container. This keeps it safe from outside hazards. It also provides protection from criminal activity.
- Crated transport provides the highest level of protection. The motorcycle is secured within a small crate. The crate is so small that the Lisbon transporters may ask you to remove the handlebars. The bike will be snug within the crate which is then placed within a larger shipping container.
