Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We can ship your motorcycle using the following motorcycle shipping methods:
- Water transport, which is a slow but cheap method of transportation.
- Air transport, which is a fast but expensive method of transportation.
- Road transport, which is the most common method of transportation.
- Rail transport, which is a cheap but slow method of transportation.
For all the methods above, you can opt to ship your bike in crates, enclosed containers or open-air containers. The delivery options that we support are door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
The following are the activities that you may be required to do while preparing your bike for shipping:
- Removing your belongings and the motorcycle accessories from the bike.
- Having professionals to do maintenance work on your bike.
- Washing your bike thoroughly.
- Checking the fluid levels.
- Checking the engine.
- Disabling the alarm system, if your bike has one.
- Ensuring that the gas level does not exceed ¼ of the tank’s capacity.
- Draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery (this applies if you will be using the crated shipping method to transport your bike).
It is advisable to thoroughly inspect your bike and take photos of it. Take notes of any marks, scratches or dents. This comes in handy in case your bike gets damaged while in the possession of the moving company and you will have to file a claim so as to get compensation.
