What Are the Methods of Transport?
- Enclosed Transport - This is the most expensive form of transport and it is also provides the most protection for your bike. Shippers typically select enclosed transport for highly valuable motorcycles or antique bikes.
- Open Air Transport - This method is available for motorcycles of any make and model. Your motorcycle will be exposed to the elements through the duration of the trip, but precautions are taken to ensure that your motorcycle arrives in the condition that it left in.
- Door to Door Transport - What make this method so convenient is that the professional shipping company will send a trailer to your home and transport the bike directly to its destination. Instead of having to drive your bike to the terminal of export and inconveniencing someone else to give you a ride, consider this option if you want to make things a little easier.
- Terminal to Terminal - This is great if you happen to live near the depot where your motorcycle will be shipped out of. If not, you will have to make arrangements with a friend or family member to drive you back home or desired destination.
Contacting Professional Motorcycle Shipping Services.
Before hiring a professional, research as much information as possible. Understanding how the shipping process works prior to talking with an agent will greatly reduce the odds of you getting ripped off by a scam company. Once you get off the phone with a representative of the transport company, keep all of the details in a folder specifically for shipping information.
