How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
If you care for your motorcycle and understand its true value, you will never hand it in to motorcycle shippers without preparing it. The following tips can be used to take care of the preparation stage.
- Take your motorbike to a specialist. They will inspect for mechanical faults and fix if need be.
- Take your motorcycle to a cleaning service. Cleaning on your own can tamper with the wiring if the bike is exotic.
- After the cleaning, inspect for breakages, rust, discoloration, or cosmetic flaws. Have all these written down and a copy submitted to the drivers.
- High resolution images are vital to show the pre-shipping conditions of the motorcycles. Different view points and damages need to be seen clearly in the pictures.
- For biker owners using the pallet method, it is recommended to withdraw all fluids. Some might be inflammable and others corrosive.
- The brittle and delicate parts should be removed or covered with thick protective covers.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Check out the registration details. Go for a motorbike shipper with licenses from Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Also, check for the USDOT
- The shipping service should have a positive rating and approval by the Better Business Bureau. Do not do anything below an A+!
- Check the ability to offer various options and alternatives for shipping. Fly by night companies are superb only on paper but are just a-man-and-van companies in real time. It is best if the options available can be personalized to meet your demands.
- To be at ease when your motorbikes are in transit, use a shipper with a comprehensive insurance policy. This category of indemnity covers many risks and damages.
- What do the previous users say regarding services offered by the shipping company? Read through their reviews, comments, ratings. When well analyzed, these aspects can give you a clear picture of what to expect upon hiring the shipper.
