If your motorcycle is not your primary mode of transportation, then moving it, either for a show, or when you need to relocate, can be a challenging prospect. If you’re trying to be thrifty, you might think that riding it yourself, or having a friend ride it to its new destination, is a clever way to save money. Unfortunately, there are a couple of problems with that proposed solution.
Some bikes are too valuable to ride.
If you are going to bring a 1947 Harley-Davidson 74CI FL Knucklehead to a show, do you really want to risk a ding, tire damage, or worse? Also, putting mileage on a classic bike can start to wear away at the value of that bike. Even if you choose not to ride the bike, but to put it on a trailer, you probably lack the experience to ensure the safety of that vehicle. If you have a bike like a 1926 Harley-Davidson JD Classic that’s worth tens of thousands of dollars, then the smart move is to choose a vehicle hauling company with specialized transportation services. Their motorcycle shipping can ensure that your valuable bike loses none of its value in transport.
You’re moving, and motorcycle transport is the last thing you need to worry about.
Whether you’re moving to the other side of a state, or across the country, you have to worry about a million things. Depending on your situation, you might be juggling the transfer to a new job, new schools for the kids, the challenge of moving pets, packing, unpacking, landlord and lease negotiations, and much more. Figuring out how to get your motorcycle from one house to the next is an added stress that you certainly don’t need. Professional motorcycle hauling is the way to go, since trying to fit your bike on to the moving van or in the back of your truck can only end in disaster.
It can get expensive.
One of the biggest reasons to hire a company to do motorcycle hauling is that the cost of fuel, food, accommodations, and wear and tear on any vehicle can be prohibitive. If you were to drive your bike across the country, the cost of gas alone would be upwards of $1,000. If you choose a company and arrange for your bike to be transported with others, you can save a great deal on transportation expenses.
Motorcycle hauling companies have the expertise, experience, resources, and tools necessary to get your bike from point A to point B in one piece. Whether you need to move or you have a bike show to get to, it’s better to be safe than sorry. More.
