It is always in a person’s best interest to thoroughly evaluate the auto transport companies nearby their home in Twin Falls. There are many reputable companies to choose from.

Motorcycle shipping is a relatively easy process when all of the right equipment is available. Transport companies are accustomed to handling motorcycles and will assure the safety of the bike as it makes its way to its new home. Their job is to make sure your bike gets from Point A to Point B without accumulating any damages along the way.
Three Main Forms of Motorcycle Transport.
There are three main methods of motorcycle shipping to choose from. Of course, not all transport companies will offer the variety of methods that others offer, but it is safe to assume that the three methods described below are options you will have to choose between.
- Open air shipping is the most popular method of motorcycle transport. While this leaves the motorcycle open to weather conditions, this is a very safe and effective form of shipping.
- Crated shipping is more detailed and protective than the other methods. The bike will be placed in a very tight container. It will be secured and will have barely any room to move around within the container it was placed inside of. This method may require extra preparation.
- Enclosed shipping also protects the bike a little more than open air shipping. The motorcycle is usually secured to a pallet and then placed within a large shipping container with other vehicles.
Regardless of what shipping method was chosen for the motorcycle’s journey, you can assure that it is further protected by the insurance policy held by the transport company. The insurance coverage is for any of the vehicles in the transport experts’ care.
