Explanation of Motorcycle Transport Methods.
Open air transport is the cheapest shipping method available. The motorcycle will be secured to an open trailer for its delivery. The transport specialists will make sure the bike is fastened and secured tightly. While en route, the driver will pay close attention to road and weather reports to avoid any potential hazards.
Enclosed transport protects the motorcycle more so than the open air method. The motorcycle is typically secured to a wooden pallet and placed within a large shipping container with other vehicles. This protects it from poor weather and road conditions.
Crated transport is the most secure and expensive form of shipping. The motorcycle may need additional preparation, but it will be provided more safety during the delivery process. After being secured to a pallet, the bike is placed within a very small container. The container is so small that you may be asked to remove the bike’s handlebars and mirrors. Being so tightly packed for the shipping process prevents the motorcycle from moving during its travels.
