How Long Will the Motorcycle Shipping Process Take?
It's suggested that you book with a transporter at least two weeks before you'd like the vehicle on its way. During this time, prepare your bike for the move. On the day of the transport, a driver will come retrieve the bike from home or the nearest terminal. This depends on whether you chose door to door services or terminal to terminal services. The driver will then secure the two wheeled vehicle to the hauler or inside of an enclosed container.
During the motorcycle’s travels, the driver will do their best to avoid poor weather and road conditions. You can keep track of the vehicle along the way through the transport company’s tracking services. When the vehicle gets near the destination point, you will receive a phone call. You or a responsible party will need to be present to pick the bike up or have it dropped off.
If you notice any damages done to the motorcycle after its arrival, the driver will write out a report. You can then call the insurance company that the transport company has a policy with. File a claim and all damages will be repaired without any cost to you.
