Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
When choosing a certain shipping method, many aspects have to be considered, such as the expected delivery date, the cost of transport, and preference.
- Transport by rail. We have containers, flatbeds, and crates to be used for this shipping method.
- Transport by air. We have containers, pallets, and can use the RoRo shipping alternative as well.
- Transport by road can be combined with options like door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal delivery for successful hauling.
- Open-air transport method involves securing bikes on an open trailer and transporting it.
- Enclosed truck transport involves placing the bikes in covered trailers.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Before the shipper arrives to pick the bike, there are some DIY tasks that you should complete.
- Cleaning the motorbike thoroughly. Ensure no part is left unwashed.
- Inspecting the scrambler for dents, dings, and marks. It is wise to have a record of the damages. Leave a copy with the shippers.
- Securing any part or item that is hanging loose to avoid loss or damage.
- Ensuring the tires are well-inflated. This will act as a shock absorber if the trailer passes through a bumpy road.
- Checking the engine and mileage. Ensure the bike is operable before shipping.
- Lowering the fuel level until it reaches a ¼ of the tank volume.
- Draining the fluids. Most fluids are flammable and highly corrosive.
- Deactivating the alarm device, GPS system, and tracking devices.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Apart from searching for a trustworthy motorbike shipping firm, there are other behind-the-scenes details one should have the knowledge of. You can get to learn about the company by posing questions like:
- Is the business functioning under legal basis? Does the company have legitimate licenses, authorizations and consents? Check with federal agencies when in doubt.
- Is the shipping service provider covered and bonded? Insurance coverage is very important for your bike’s safety while on the move. A mishap might occur and you will need your rightful compensation.
- Do the shippers possess adequate knowledge and needed experience to offer bike shipping services particularly in Beverly Hills?
- Do the shippers know and abide by the rules and regulations of motorcycle shipping, to and from Beverly Hills?
- How fast is the shipping company in giving feedback? Responsive companies’ support implies quality of their services.
- Are the transport experts able to keep time while delivering cargo? Ideal shippers always deliver within timelines.
