How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Clean your motorbike. It will be easier to notice possible damages with the dirt washed away.
- Inspect your motorbike for defects. These defects should be noted down. Before the shipper loads the bike, notify them regarding the faulty parts.
- Photograph your motorbike from every possible angle. The pictures taken are beneficial in instances where the bike owner is requested to produce evidence showing that the bike was undamaged before shipping.
- The fuel tank should have little or no gas. More gas causes an increase in weight and subsequently an increase in the shipping price. Also, reduce the gas to avoid explosions.
- Disable the alarm device. Alarm devices may cause a nuisance to the public if they go off while the motorbike is in transit. If this happens, fines or penalties might be imposed.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The presence of the shipping firm. You need to find out before hiring a specific shipper if they have verified physical addresses. Their offices should be present in all the regions you ship.
- Licensing and bonding information of the shipping firm. Motorcycle transport just like any other business must be issued with a legal license from the US Department of Transport. The permits allow a transport solution provider to do business in the US and all other countries.
- Standards of the equipment used for shipping bikes. It is wise to inspect the equipment that will be used to ship your motorcycle. They should comply with the international standards, the shipper should take them for maintenance often, and certification should be produced to prove that the equipment was acquired legally.
