Riding your motorcycle is a fun-filled affair. No matter how much you want to ride on it, they are instances where the help of a motorcycle shipping company is needed. Examples of these instances include:

  • When you buy a brand-new motorcycle online and you want it delivered to your address in pristine condition, and within a specific timeline.
  • When partaking in a bike racing event that is held overseas or in a distant location. Normally, the organizers specify that the motorcycles should be transported to the venue.
  • When the bike is inoperable because of a faulty engine or other mechanical parts. You will have to hire a shipping company to transfer your bike to a bike repair professional.
  • When avoiding an increase in mileage as well as wearing out.

Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle

These options that follow are the available motorcycle shipping methods:

  • Shipping via water. The water option is a reliable and cost-effective transport method if you want to ship bikes to overseas countries.
  • Shipping via road. Roads are easily accessible by many and they connect many areas, unlike other shipping methods.
  • Shipping via air. The fastest way to ship your motorbike is by use of cargo planes. As much as it is swift, you will have to fork out more cash compared to other methods.
  • Shipping via rail. Rather than getting stuck on the road for hours when shipping your bike, we can use the rail transport alternative. It is a relatively fast and convenient inland method of bike shipping.

Door-to-door shipping and terminal-to-terminal shipping are the available delivery alternatives.

How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping

The activities to be completed some days before shipping include:

  • Unscrewing the motorcycle’s accessories.
  • Deactivating the alarm and tracking systems.
  • Cleaning your motorbike to eliminate dirt.
  • Covering the delicate parts of your motorcycle with heavy blankets.
  • Inspecting the engine.
  • Adding adequate air in the tires.
  • Draining fluids.
  • Detaching the battery before packing the motorcycle in the wooden crate.
  • Confirming that the fuel level is below a ¼ of the tank capacity.

What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company

The key features that you need to check and that your shipper shouldn’t miss include:

  • The ability to move motorbikes in an effective and dependable style; for instance, the use of safe and fast shipping methods.
  • The provision of a transit insurance coverage. If your bike gets damaged while in the hands of the shipper, the insurance policy will cater for that.
  • Cost-effective motorcycle transport solutions. A suitable shipping firm is one that offers customers quotations that have no obligations attached.
  • The approval of the bike transport firm by the federal organizations such as the BBB, the US Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Authority.
  • The ability of the shipping firm to offer tailored motorbike transport services.
