Many carriers offer deals an special prices to ship your motorcycle that are way below market and are extremely cheap. As the saying goes you get what you pay for. Another saying goes: if it’s too good to be true then it?s because it is. Pay attention to additional charges. Some companies only give you a base rate and once you make a deposit?BAM!!! They get you with additionally charges such as fuel surge charge, residential delivery or excess height. PATRIOT EXPRESS LOGISTICS OFFERS TRUE ALL INCLUSIVE RATES.
There are basically 2 types of shipping services. One is a roll on roll of service which most of the time is door to door. The second type of service is freight service. Freight service is the least liked type of service. While it might be cheaper to ship freight, your bike is at a much higher risk of damage. Why? Well, a motorcycle that is being shipped as freight will more than likely transfer dozens of times before it is actually delivered. Additionally, it will be handled with a forklift. PATRIOT EXPRESS LOGISTICS only ships door to door and roll on roll off service. We only offer enclosed, blanket wrapped, door to door, and all-inclusive service. So with this in mind, please do your research. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have. We look forward to working with you.
