What is terminal-to-terminal motorcycle shipping?
One of several motorcycle transportation options, we offer is terminal-to-terminal motorcycle shipping. As the name implies, you take your motorcycle to a shipping terminal and then pick it up at a terminal as close as possible to its new location. Depending on how close you live to either terminal, this may not be a convenient option. Although it is one of the more cost-effective transport options that Cheap Motorcycle Shipping offers, it may not be the most effective if you have certain time restrictions to be concerned with.
How does terminal-to-terminal motorcycle shipping work?
While there are several other transport options for shipping a motorcycle, many clients choose the terminal-to-terminal option because it is more economical than the other options we offer. With this option, you take your bike to the shipper’s dock or terminal to be shipped to their delivery dock or terminal in the delivery location. Once there, they will notify you that your bike has arrived and needs to be picked up. The only downside is that this option may not be so convenient during cold winter months.
What are the benefits of terminal-to-terminal motorcycle shipping?
Although this option means that your bike may be stored at the pick-up location before it is shipped, the shipping options offered by Cheap Motorcycle Shipping are intended to enhance the quality and timeliness of transporting your bike. There are a number of significant benefits when choosing this motorcycle transport option. Most individuals choose this option because they live in a large city where access for the transport driver is limited or there is limited street parking. With this option, you have a lot of conveniences such as:
- arranging for someone else to drop off or pick up your motorcycle
- being able to drop off or pick up your bike without coordinating a specific date and time with the transport service
- having the option of storing your bike in the terminal yard if you need to until you are ready to pick it up
- picking up your vehicle when it is convenient for you to do so
Although terminal-to-terminal motorcycle shipping does offer a cost-savings benefit, that could be offset if you have to store your bike for an extended period. You can always discuss your custom requirements with us and we’ll be happy to customize a plan that meets your motorcycle shipping requirements.
What are the disadvantages of terminal-to-terminal transport?
It wouldn’t be fair to our potential customers to only tell them the benefits of this option without discussing the disadvantages. As a result, this option has seen its popularity declining over the past decade. Here is what you want to be aware of:
- scheduling is more complicated
- terminals are limited as to how much they can store
- there are a decreasing number of terminals available
- your bike is exposed to the elements while it sits in the terminal yard
