Even through its small town essence, the City of Mansfield provides its residents with convenient services and amenities. Since motorcycles are so common throughout the state of Ohio, there are many different shipping companies made available to those in need.
Even dealerships can be seen using these services often to trade and sell off inventory. Shipping multiple vehicles at once usually qualifies the shipping customer for discounts.
Standard Universal Motorcycle Transport Methods.
- Enclosed Shipping.
- Open Air Shipping.
- Crated Shipping.
All three of these transport methods are created to keep the bike as safe as possible. With that being said, some offer a little more protection than the others which will increase the rate you must pay. Remember, regardless of what shipping method you select, free insurance coverage provides additional protection.
How Long Is the Process of Shipping?
The shipping process for motorcycle transports is usually very quick. For a trip across the nation, it might only take up to two weeks. Of course, this is adding in time for rest stops and other obstacles along the way, meaning that the motorcycle may make its way even sooner.
Transport drivers will pay close attention to weather and road conditions. They will try their best to avoid such situations which may make their length of travel slightly longer. Their main objective is to get the motorcycle safely to its new home. If you are in a rush to have the bike shipped out, ask the customer service reps if they offer expedited or guaranteed shipping services. These added services can help decrease the timeframe in which the bike is delivered or assure that it arrives on a certain date.
