Methods that we use to transport motorcycles
The motorcycle shipping methods which we provide are:
- Air transport, which is fastest and most reliable option but the most expensive one.
- Water transport, which is a cheaper option for shipping bikes to distant locations, compared to air transport.
- Road transport, which is a common in-land transport option.
- Rail transport, which is a more reliable in-land shipping option because not delays are experienced.
We are also able to deliver bikes using either the door-to-door delivery option or the terminal-to-terminal delivery option. You can select the transport methods based on your preferences and your budget.
Proper preparation of your bike for shipping
Preparation of a motorcycle is essential since it ensures that your bike will be in a proper condition for shipping and that the occurrence of potential hazards will be avoided. This step will mainly include:
- Removing the motorcycle accessories.
- Disabling the bike’s alarm system.
- Washing the bike and ensuring it has no dirt or debris on it.
- Checking the engine and the level of the fluids.
- Checking the tire pressure.
- Ensuring that the level of gas in the tank does not exceed a quarter of the total capacity.
- Draining the fluids and also disconnecting the battery, if you have opted to ship your bike using the crated shipping option.
Note: In case some damage is caused on your bike while it is in the hands of the transporter, proof of this is required when filing an insurance claim. Therefore, it is advisable to take notes of the condition of the bike and to do a thorough inspection of it. Taking photos is highly recommended.
