The basics of motorcycle shipping that you need to know
There are various reasons why a person may need to ship a motorcycle from one destination to another. Whether you are an individual buyer or a business, you may need to send a motorcycle over a longer distance, and it would not make sense to ride the motorcycle that far.
There are two main methods used in motorcycle shipping: open transport and enclosed transport. Here, the team at DRS Transports wants to discuss the pros and cons of both methods.
Open motorcycle transport
Open motorcycle transportation is exactly what it sounds like, and if you have ever seen a motorcycle being carried behind a vehicle on a trailer, then you have seen some form of open motorcycle transport. An open motorcycle transport involves moving a motorcycle without an enclosed trailer.
Open motorcycle transport services will generally be incredibly cost-effective, which is a major plus for your budget. However, as the name suggests, open motorcycle transport does leave the vehicle exposed to the elements as well as potential roadway debris. However, keep in mind that insurance will typically cover any damage that may occur in these cases. These exposure risks are low, and the benefits far outweigh the potential risks.
We also want to point out that, even though a motorcycle be shipped this way, it is not accumulating any miles, and there will be no mechanical wear and tear.
Enclosed motorcycle transport
Enclosed motorcycle transport services are going to include ensuring the motorcycle is enclosed in a trailer. This allows for the protection of the motorcycle from adverse weather conditions or roadway debris.
While enclosed motorcycle shipping may offer a bit more protection, you can generally expect this transportation option to come with some additional costs. However, there are various reasons why it might make sense to spend a little bit more money to ensure the motorcycle is enclosed. This can include the need to ship more expensive motorcycles, highly customized motorcycles, or motorcycles that are currently being maintained that may be more exposed to the elements than a typical motorcycle would be.
