How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Here, we offer you hacks for motorcycle preparation. This pre-shipping activity is important and shippers will rarely accept unprepared bike. Follow the hacks to avoid trouble.
- Dirt on the bike should be washed off ahead of shipping to allow for easier inspection of damages.
- Dents and scratches on the motorbike should get documented. If possible, make the records in triplicates. Submit some copies to the office and leave another with the truck operator.
- Add images to the records. Make sure that the pictures are clear. You will need these in case something happens to the cargo.
- While fuel is needed to start the engine when offloading the bike, a lot of it poses danger to everyone within the vicinity. Keep the gas level at around ¼ of the full tank capacity.
- Motorcycles need fluids to operate. Some of them can be corrosive or even inflammable. Remove these when shipping the consignment.
- Ship the bike with the security devices switched off to prevent draining the battery power. The battery should be fully charged when hauling.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- It is recommendable to locate motorbike hauling services whose equipment are at par with international standards. With these you are guaranteed to enjoy a safe shipping. Also, ensure that the handling tools are designed for shipping bikes and not any other type of cargo.
- Find out if the motorcycle shipping company can ship all types of bikes like trikes, all-terrain-vehicles, scooters, and pit bikes. If so, they should have hands-on experience apart from the training.
- Checking the legitimacy of your haulage partner is a recommendable step. They should be in a position to produce licenses approved by the US Department of Transport and certificates offered by the FMCSA.
