Motorcycle Transport Services
Almost every company that provides vehicle shipping services provide transportation for motorcycles. Whether you’re shipping a racing bike, a nice custom chopper, or something else, we here at Car Transport Express can probably ship it thanks to our awesome motorcycle transport services. But we believe in preparing you, the customer, for what you’ll come across during your motorcycle transport experience, so in this helpful article we’ll detail the most important aspects of motorcycle transport and how they can affect you.
Motorcycle transport services, on the whole, are cheaper than normal car transport services. This has to do with a couple different things, but most notably it’s the fact that motorcycles are smaller and, as such, they take up less room and weight a lot less than a standard car. Since motorcycles can’t fit on a standard auto transport carrier you may have to wait a few extra days for pickup, as opposed to if you were shipping a regular car, but the drop in price should more than make up for any delays in terms of pickup. There are two main carriers that will ship a motorcycle, either a flatbed auto transport carrier or an enclosed car transport carrier. You should also try and book your motorcycle transportation at least ten days out – we would prefer two weeks, but we understand if it’s a bit sooner. That would give us plenty of time to dispatch your load to a carrier.
Motorcycle transport services also offer more protection during transport than standard auto transport, which is great news if you’re shipping a custom bike that’s really nice and you don’t want anything to ding it or scratch that beautiful paint. Every motorcycle that we transport is loaded into a specialized motorcycle shipping crate designed to protect the bike from damage during transport. It’s not just for safety, though it is an added perk; crating all motorcycles actually makes it easier for auto transporters to fit more onto their trailer at a time safely. They could probably get double that if they didn’t, but the motorcycles themselves would be wedged in there and would probably end up damaged. Crated motorcycles may take up more room, but it’s more organized and ultimately safer, providing more protection while minimizing damage claims.
And when we’re talking about our motorcycle transport services, we’re really referring to anything motorcycle-esque.
