What are My Shipping Options?
When it comes to transporting a motorcycle to another state, there are quite a few methods deemed successful by past customers. All of these are safe options, especially in contrast to riding the bike there yourself. The prices will vary seeing as some of the transport methods are considered to be safer than others. If the company offers insurance during the motorcycle's transport, you might want to take advantage of the extra purchase.
- Crated Shipping - This method requires the bike to be drained of all fluids. The battery must be disconnected and sometimes the handlebars and mirrors will need to be removed. The bike is then strapped to a wooden pallet and placed inside an enclosed container.
- Enclosed Shipping - The bike is placed inside a trailer.
- Open Air Shipping - The motorcycle is placed on top of a flatbed trailer which could leave it open to the possibility of poor road or weather conditions.
- Terminal to Terminal - The motorcycle will need to be dropped off at a shipping terminal and retrieved at another terminal closer to the last location.
- Door to Door - The hauler will come pick the motorcycle up from wherever it is stored, then take it to the destination in which you specified.
