There is an easier way to get your bike to another far off location without having to drive it there, motorcycle transport. Slidell transport services help to ship your bike either in a container or atop a flatbed trailer to get to its new home.
There are many people that use these types of services all of the time, especially buyers, sellers and dealerships. Those relocating also use these services as necessary. It is a great way to protect your motorcycle from the elements and extra miles.
In order to hire the right transport company, you will need to pay close attention to certain characteristics that the company possesses. They should have insurance coverage, little to no down payment, a variety of services, and all of the proper licensing and certificates of approval.
Services that Offer the Most Convenience.
Whenever you are unsure of what services to choose, customer service should be more than willing to help out. However, knowing a little about some of the most common services offered will be of great assistance. Some services are more thorough and suitable than others.
When it comes to pickup and drop off, there are usually only two options given. You can go with door to door services if you wish to not drive the motorcycle at all. It is also more time efficient in that the driver will pick the bike up so you don’t have to take the time out of your schedule to drop it off anywhere. Door to door services are slightly more costly, but if you have the extra room in the budget, it is well worth it.
While some people prefer enclosed services, open air shipping is the most favorable option and it’s cheaper. Even though the motorcycle is open to the elements, the driver will avoid anything that might cause it any harm during the transport. They pay attention to weather, traffic and road reports. Not to mention, transport companies by law must carry insurance coverage for the vehicle during its relocation.
