When moving, cars are not generally shipped in the same moving van as household goods. Usually a third party companies will move an automobile. This is not necessary the same for moving motorcycles in a residential move.
Typically a motorcycle is moved as part of the household goods in the same moving van. Regarding high value motorcycles, anytime there is a high-value item in a shipment, damage is a concern. However, Marathon Moving Boston movers is very confident that they can move even the most expensive motorcycles.
Custom crates are designed specifically for your motorcycle. These crates have air bags that keep it from shifting, as well as power straps to strap it down. The crate itself is very sturdy and can prevent any items from outside of the damaging it.
For smaller motorbikes, like dirt bikes or small road bikes, that may not warrant the cost of the crating we can pad it up, secure strapped it secured safely in the truck.
We are confident we can move smaller motorbikes as well. The only difference is that we would not be able to insure the smaller bikes against damage if they are not crated by us.
Typically the crating cost of a motorcycle is around $800 and that includes the custom crate, air bags and packing. Surely, higher end motorcycles are worth the cost.
