The Initial Cost

We know how much people adore their precious motorcycles, and we want to provide the best service possible. The initial cost for shipping a motorcycle is high either way, but people often want to know which the cheaper option is.

Open trailer transport is the cheaper option. This is due to the bike simply being strapped to the back of a trailer and driven to its destination. The motorcycle may or may not be covered by a tarp, but it is delivered. Open trailer transport can also involve the shipping for other bikes alone with the chosen one depending on its destination.

Enclosed auto transport is more expensive, but it also offers several more advantages.

Which One Is Safer?

We understand people want a good deal, but we also understand they deserve the best service too. While open trailer transport for a motorcycle is cheaper, it’s also not the safest for the motorcycle.

Open trailer transport exposes the automobile to the mercy of the road and the elements. When the bike is being transported it can also be seen by anyone passing by too. The bike can suffer damage from debris left on the road and kicked up by other vehicles. When it rains, snows, or even hails the bike is exposed to these elements too. Once the bike arrives it could be damaged during transportation.

Enclosed auto transport is the much safer option for transporting any vehicle. The motorcycle is completely enclosed during its transfer from Point A to Point B. There is no chance of debris or the elements getting to the bike. The best part is you receive your motorcycle in the same condition you left it in too. There is no reason to worry about it being damaged, stolen, or scratched up during transport.

Which One Is The Best Investment?

Motorcycle transport can be expensive, but we often asked which one is the better investment. Picking the cheapest auto transport service does not always mean you receive the best service. The best choice you can make is to choose the transportation service that best reflects how you feel about the safety of your motorcycle.

Motorcycles that are classics or collector’s items should be transported using enclosed auto transport. These bikes are usually one of a kind and can be nearly impossible to be replaced if damaged. People wanting to protect these investments should go with the enclosed transport service just to ensure their motorcycle is completely safe.

Open trailer transport is meant for more common motorcycle transports. Bikes people use on a daily basis to get to work, home, run errands, pick up the kids, and other day-to-day activities.  If in the off chance that there is damage to the motorcycle during transport, it’s not a huge investment to fix it in the first place.
