What are My Options for Motorcycle Transport?
Motorcycle shipping services vary from company to company. Nevertheless, there are three forms of transport that are preferred by those that often purchase such services. All three methods are widely practiced and known for their security.
The open air shipping method is the least costly, but not always a wise choice for anyone shipping the bike long distances. The motorcycle is secured to an open trailer which means that it may experience poor weather or road conditions during its travels. This method is preferred more so by those shipping the bike to a nearby location or multiple vehicles at once.
Enclosed shipping services are best for long distance deliveries. The motorcycle will be secured inside a large shipping container with other vehicles for its transport. This will protect it from vandalism, bad weather, and road debris.
Crated shipping is the priciest, yet most secure form of shipping for a motorcycle. It will require a bit more preparation on your behalf and is most beneficial to those shipping valuable motorcycles. The bike will be secured to a pallet and placed snuggly within a small crate. The handlebars and mirrors may need to be removed to ensure a tight fit. The bike will be unable to shift or move during its travels.
