Motorcycle Transporting Tips and Advice.
When you have finally selected a company, ask them what methods of transport for motorcycles that they have to offer. Some of the transport methods are best chosen for shorter distances of travel and favorable weather and road condition.
Open air shipping leaves the motorcycle open to the possibility of all elements. They motorcycle is placed on top of a flatbed trailer for its transport. If the road conditions or weather isn’t favorable, the bike could be subjected to minor damage. However, this is a cheaper method of transport and many transport companies will offer insurance during the shipping process.
Enclosed and crated shipping methods are among the top two most popular choices. These methods both ship the bike within an enclosed container. Crated shipping is a bit more detailed and will require a bit more preparation, but it is the safest form of motorcycle transport.
