If you need to get a motorcycle from Suffolk to the West Coast, it is best to hire shipping professionals. Make sure that they have experience in dealing with motorcycle transport specifically. Most auto shipping companies offer motorcycle transport services including open air, enclosed and crated shipping.
It is often times the easiest solution to hire a trustworthy transporter to handle the bike’s shipping process. As experienced motorcycle transporters, they only wish to get your bike from Suffolk to its next home without causing it any harm. They also operate under tight timeframes, delivering a motorcycle across the country in less than two weeks on average.
Door to Door Delivery versus Terminal to Terminal Delivery.
Whenever you are choosing services and features to go along with your preferred shipping method, you may be asked whether you favor door to door delivery or terminal to terminal delivery. Some transport companies won’t give you an option, but just in case they do, it is best to understand what each delivery method entails.
- Door to door delivery offers more convenience. This delivery service includes the transport company picking the bike up from wherever it is stored and dropping it off at the address you specified.
- Terminal to terminal tends to be a cheaper delivery service. This means that the bike must be released to a nearby Suffolk terminal and retrieved at another terminal nearer to the bike’s final destination after shipping.
If you find that you have the room within your budget, choose door to door services. This delivery method will free up more of your time while allowing you to watch the professionals secure the bike to the hauler before it sets towards the next location.
