Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open-air hauling. We use our fleets of open vehicles like lowboy trailers, vans, and flatbeds. These autos are excellent for shipping over short distances.
- Crated motorcycle hauling. Before shipping the motorcycles, we pack them in pallets built from wood.
- Enclosed trailer hauling. In this method, sealed trailers are the vessels used in shipping motorcycles. Sealing shields the motorbikes from damaging factors like gravel and severe weather.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Wash the bike with soapy water and dry it using soft cotton towels to simplify the search for damages.
- Record any defects or damages after inspection in triplicate. Sign on the copies and offer the truck operator a copy after they have signed too.
- Take crisp pictures of the motorcycle in a well-lit place. Photograph from all angles and include the damages.
- Consult your insurer to acquire an updated personal insurance policy.
- Switch the alarm device off. Unscrew it if asked to do so by your shipper. Label the container that you pack the device in.
- Protruding parts and loose accessories get lost or damaged easily. These should be detached and shipped in sealed boxes.
- Check the fuel reading. Ensure it is not more than a ¼ tank.
- Identify dangerous fluids and pump them out.
- Examine the tires for punctures and fix them if any. Also, take a PSI gauge to measure the amount of pressure in the tires. Use a metered pump to add air if need be.
- Check the amount of charge in the battery using a voltmeter. Charge the battery if need be.
Note that a bike cannot be shipped using the pallet shipping method with the battery attached. You are advised to remove it, place it in dry and cool box and keep it away from direct sunrays while in transit.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The quality of machinery and tools used by shippers. There is a lot more to assess apart from a mere name. Walk right into the shippers’ premises and evaluate the kind of transportation equipment they have. Enter into business with them after verifying that they are of top quality.
- Confirm that the motorcycle hauler holds the needed certificates and permits from government agencies. Ask for the license documents and check if they are validated by organizations sanctioned by the government to govern the shipping industry.
