- Open-air moving – this is a very popular shipping option for young riders because it is pocket-friendly.
- Crating – also known as palleted shipping, crating involves placing the motorcycle in a wooden crate and strapping it inside with the help of tie-down belts. Recommended for exotic bikes.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
