The Town of Bristol has many great motorcycle transport companies. The services provided by these businesses make it easier to have a motorcycle relocated. Not only do transport services protect the bike’s condition and assure a faster delivery, but they can be purchased at an inexpensive rate.
Any genuine transport company will carry an insurance policy to further protect all of the vehicles in their care for the shipping process. The insurance will pay for any repairs or replacements that might be necessary after a transport. Luckily, an insurance claim is rarely ever a concern.
What Must Be Done before the Bike’s Transport.
The assortment of shipping methods available includes enclosed shipping, crated shipping, open air shipping, door to door, and terminal to terminal. All of the transport methods have standard prep work required, except when it comes to crated shipping. In this case, the motorcycle will need to be drained of all fluids and the battery must be removed or disabled. The handlebars and other items may also need to be removed.
- Wash the motorcycle and make sure it is clean from all dirt and debris.
- Take off any loose items on the bike. Anything unnecessary should also be removed.
- Have the bike inspected for existing damage. Take notes and pictures.
- Check the gas. Make sure the tank is n more than ¼ full.
- Check fluids, battery and tire pressure.
When all of the requirements are fulfilled the likelihood of harm occurring to the vehicle or those involved in the shipping process is lesser. It also prepares the bike as necessary for a successful shipping process.
