When you live in a more populous place, it is almost without certainty that you will find reliable motorcycle shipping services somewhere nearby. The City of Dearborn happens to have several outstanding shipping companies equipped to handle local or long distance motorcycle transport.
With the latest transport haulers and equipment, your bike will be strapped down and secured according to the shipping process you chose. As the hauler makes its way towards the location specified for drop off, the motorcycle will be protected from anything that might cause it damage.
About the Insurance Coverage Carried by Transport Companies.
Any reliable, professional transport company will have an insurance policy that provides coverage on the motorcycles and other vehicles in their care during the shipping process. This coverage adds an extra layer of protection. The insurance protects the vehicle from the moment the transport company picks up the bike until it is released to the person it is being delivered to.
Although it’s uncommon for the motorcycle to suffer any damage while it’s in the care of the professionals, the insurance will cover any repairs, replacements or other necessary corrections that might be needed if an accident were to happen. The driver of the hauler will take all precautions, avoiding bad weather, construction and heavy traffic whenever they are able. If possible in those cases, an alternative route will be taken so that very little time is lost and the motorcycle remains clear of potential hazards.
When the motorcycle pulls up to its destination and the driver relieves it from the hauler, a brief inspection of the bike should be given. Pictures and documentation of harm done to the bike before it was shipped always make the final inspection easier. If you notice any damages that must’ve been caused during the shipping process, inform the driver so that they can fill out a report for an insurance claim.
