What Are My Options with Motorcycle Shipping in Michigan?
There are a lot of different shipping methods to take advantage of depending on the transport company chosen. Consider your budget and the method of transport that you feel is safest for the bike. Many of these companies will offer insurance for the shipping process to ensure the motorcycle's safety.
- Crated shipping's known for being the safest method of transport for motorcycles. The bike will need to be drained of all fluids and the battery will need to be disconnected. Some companies will also ask that the handlebars and mirrors be removed. The bike is then strapped to a wooden pallet and placed inside a small container.
- Enclosed shipping is a safe method as well. The motorcycle will be placed in an enclosed trailer.
- Open air shipping is when the bike's placed on a flatbed trailer open to the possibility of poor weather and road conditions. This method isn't always the safest, but it is one of the cheapest methods of shipping.
- Terminal to terminal transport is a cheaper service. The owner of the motorcycle will drop it off at one of the shipping terminals and pick it up at another.
- Door to door transport is a convenient service where the company comes to retrieve the bike from you and drops it off anywhere you need it to go.
