Open Bike Transport
Open bike transport involves the use of an open carrier like a designated motorcycle trailer or flatbed.
The towed vehicles for open transport have no sides or roofs, and they are entirely open. Open motorcycle transport is suitable for long-distance hauling and expedited shipping. If you want to move a motorcycle out of state to a client or as a personal owner, most of the carriers we use will be able to help you.
Advantages of Open Bike Transport
The most significant benefit of open motorcycle transport is affordability. If you have strict budget requirements, open motorcycle shipping is a viable option. Because the carriers we secure for this type of shipments are reliable and experienced, you can also rest assured that your motorcycle is in safe hands.
Another benefit of open transport is that the driver can inspect the motorcycle for fastening issues or other problems throughout the journey.
There are drawbacks to the transport type, however. The trailers or multi-carriers have no covering, so your motorcycle is exposed to the sun’s UV rays, wind, and road grime and dust.
Consider Enclosed Transport for Your Motorcycle
Exposure to harsh elements and grime build-up on the road is a problem for most motorcycle owners. Requesting enclosed transport for your motorcycle will limit its susceptibility damage from road conditions, as enclosed trailers have walls and a roof.
eShip recommends enclosed transport with hard walls and a hydraulic lift, as this method eliminates the risk of any damage during transit. Enclosed transport is more expensive than open transport, but you will have peace of mind that the covering protects your motorcycle against the conditions on the road. Contact us to request hard-wall enclosed transport with the use of a hydraulic lift.
Expedited Motorcycle Transport
Expedited motorcycle transport ensures motorcycle delivery that is faster than usual. eShip can assign a carrier to transport your motorcycle directly to the delivery location from pickup using only one mode of transportation and no touchpoints.
This service is available to clients who sign up for open motorcycle transport, but requesting an expedited service will ramp up your costs. Carriers typically assign two drivers who work in shifts to reduce delays. Expedited motorcycle transport is ideal for clients who want to move motorcycles urgently between locations.
eShip Provides Open Motorcycle Transport Services
eShip is a family-owned business that has been providing clients with open motorcycle transport solutions for more than ten years.

eShip is licensed and bonded by FMCSA MC# 735249 USDOT 2248101. We also only use reliable carriers that are licensed and bonded. We have established relationships with the open motorcycle transport carriers we use. We also know from experience that we can rely on them to take care of our clients’ needs.
If you are expecting a delivery, you want to be able to reach the transport company. eShip is available to clients seven days a week, and you can contact us after hours if you have any queries.
When you sign up for our open motorcycle transport service, we will appoint you a personal shipping agent who works on your file. This agent is available to you throughout the week, for as long as shipping is in process.
With our vehicle tracking solution, you can stay on top of the shipment and carry out your planning accordingly.
The quotes from some of our competitors are unrealistically low to attract clients. These low quotes are usually not based on actual shipping costs as these brokers don’t secure drivers before they charge shipping fees to their clients.
After you accept the company’s quote, they will try to secure a shipment for the date you requested – sometimes without success.
The quotes from eShip are sometimes higher than those of our competitors because our quoted prices are guaranteed to secure your shipment. The shipping prices we quote you are accurate. Even better, we don’t expect you to pay an upfront deposit without knowing if you will receive your motorcycle in time.
When arranging open motorcycle transport, you don’t want to deal with delays. The quote you receive from eShip is based on a scheduled shipment. When you book an open motorcycle transport with us, you are sure to have the motorcycle delivered on the date you requested.

You may also be eligible to receive a rental reimbursement of up to $300 in terms of this plan if your motorcycle is more than 48 hours late.
