Without the proper tools, knowledge or experience, the best way to get a motorcycle shipped out of Macon is by hiring a professional motorcycle transportation company. Whether you are buying or selling a bike or you are meeting up with friends on the other side of the country for a rally, you can expect your shipping expectations to be met by a transportation company in Macon.
Things to Avoid.
- Non-binding agreements- Be wary of motorcycle transportation services that offer you a great deal over the phone. Unless you sign a document that clearly states how much you will be paying do not believe what they quote you. More reputable motorcycle shipping companies will offer a binding estimate.
- Companies that do not specialize in motorcycle hauling- Unless the company stricly deals with the transportation of motorcycles, do not hire them. Often times, moving companies will pose as motorcycle shipping companies, but they rarely have trained motorcycle haulers on staff.
- Companies who have poor reviews online or those that do not have a website at all should not be trusted with your motorcycle.
Consider a Reliable Shipping Method.
Motorcycle shipping services in Macon will offer you multiple different shipping options and they all vary in price. When it comes to your bike, you will need to determine what is best for your own peace of mind. Each shipping method is considered safe, but when it comes to how picky you are personally, your safest options are either enclosed transport or crated transport.
Open Air Transportation.
Open air transportation is another common way you can get your bike transported to its destination. However, unlike enclosed or crated transport, your bike will be slightly exposed to the elements. Typically, drivers will travel at their discretion and if it looks as if rough weather is approaching, they will more than likely pull off to a safe location. Keeping your bike safe from the elements might delay the arrival time so make sure to ask for a tracking number to keep tabs on your bike.
