3 Things to Know About Motorcycle Shipping
Tips to ensure you have a successful motorcycle shipping.
Several factors are important when transporting your motorcycle. However, in our experience, the following three are the ones you should prioritize. .
Motorcycles require specific loading/unloading procedures and equipment to ensure safe and damage-free delivery. Inexperience in loading and strapping down motorcycles can lead to serious problems, such as body damage, and even total damage.
The average motorcycle shipping costs between $350 to $700 for every 1,000 miles (about the distance from Florida to New York City). For fewer shipping miles, carriers give quotes ranging between $180 to $300. But the price may vary depending on diverse factors, such as the pick-up and drop-off location, the size of the unit, and the condition it is in.
For assembled motorcycles, the safest way to travel is by using an enclosed trailer. Enclosed trailers protect units from the weather, rock debris, and unforeseen events, such as theft.
Some motorcycles can be transported on an open trailer too. However, it is recommended only for short distances and without stops rides.
