The security of your motorcycle is perhaps the most important facet of a successful shipping process. Fortunately, there are quite a few transport companies nesting nearby those living in Ballwin.
Find one that offers low rates and motorcycle shipping services that appeal to your situation.
For faster shipping services, ask about the company’s faster paced delivery options. These will help to assure your motorcycle is put at the top of the list as high priority. The motorcycle shipping company will make sure that the motorcycle arrives safe and sound by the time it is expected.
Tips for Preparing the Motorcycle.
- Clean the motorcycle off thoroughly.
- Take off anything that didn’t come with the bike originally.
- Gather contact information from the driver.
- Take note of your motorcycle’s condition. Take pictures and write down damages.
- Leave the gas tank only ¼ full or even less. Fuel adds too much weight to the vehicle and puts those involved in the shipping process at risk.
Must I Be There for the Bike’s Pickup and Delivery?
Most shipping organizations will call for your presence during the pickup and drop off. Nevertheless, if you can’t personally be there, you can designate another responsible party. This must be confirmed with the transport company and specific forms of documentation will be necessary for this to happen.
Supplementary costs might apply to anyone changing the plan already confirmed with the auto transport company. Make sure that you talk over the details with the transport company first. Call customer service if something changes during the shipping process and the details will be sorted out appropriately.
