Methods and Advice for Motorcycle Transport.
It is important that as the motorcycle’s owner, you find the best possible transport method for the bike. All of the methods are reliable, but some offer a little more protection for the motorcycle than others. The rates and styles of each method will also vary, so always keep your budget in mind.
- Enclosed shipping includes transporting the motorcycle in a closed container.
- Open air shipping transports the bike by putting it on top of a trailer. Considering that the motorcycle is left in the open air, poor weather or road conditions could possibly cause damage to the bike.
- Crated shipping is a very safe option, but it requires quite a bit of preparation before the transport can be made.
- Terminal to terminal transport is when the owner must take the motorcycle to a terminal for its transport. They then must pick it up at another terminal nearby the bike’s destination. This is a cheaper option.
- Door to door transport consists of the company coming to retrieve the bike from its home. They will then drop the bike off at any specified address.
Make sure that you select a method that you feel comfortable using. If your motorcycle means a lot to you, it is best that you go with a method of transport that you feel is best for the bike’s trip.
