Instead of riding your motorcycle to St. Petersburg when in the midst of moving there, consider having it shipped. This allows you to take alternative transportation so that you can bring along other items. Finding a dependable transport company is easy too. As long as you pay attention to the reviews and rating the company holds, finding one you can trust will be simple.
The warm weather in Florida is perfect for any bike rider. The breeze that comes off the water will keep you cool when the sun is hot and there are so many scenic coastal routes to travel on. Having a motorcycle in the city of St. Petersburg will definitely be beneficial.
The Methods of Motorcycle Transport Available.
There are a variety of transport methods to select from when it comes to your motorcycle shipment. Choose the one that not only suits your budget, but one you feel safe using. A motorcycle is a valuable possession and making sure it is shipped safely is important.
- Open air shipping is a cheap method of shipment. However, the motorcycle is placed on top of an open flatbed which leaves it exposed to the possibility of poor road and weather conditions.
- Enclosed shipping is a safer method in which the bike is placed inside of a container for shipment.
- Crated shipping is the safest method. This method requires that the motorcycle is drained of all fluids and the battery is disconnected. It is then strapped to a wooden pallet and placed within a tight trailer.
- Door to door is when the bike is picked up at a specific location specified by the owner and then taken to another specified location.
- Terminal to terminal is a cheaper option, but not always convenient. The bike must be delivered to a terminal for shipment and picked up from another terminal in or near St. Petersburg.
