Our motorcycle shipping methods

The methods of motorcycle shipping that we use while making deliveries include:

Water transport - It is a slow but relatively affordable means of transporting bikes overseas. The bike is ferried to the receiving port on a cargo ship.

Rail transport: It is an in-land method of transportation which is highly reliable and ensures that the delivery is completed with minimal delays. The bike is transported in a cargo train.

Road transport: It is the most common means of shipping and the bike may be transported on an open truck, a flatbed truck or on a motorcycle trailer. Since some congestion may be encountered on some routes, this may result in some delays in delivery.

The preparation of a motorcycle for shipping

The activities that should be done as a bike is being prepared for shipping include removing the accessories and disabling the alarm system, checking the fluid levels, the engine and the tire pressure. Additionally, you should ensure that the level of the gas is at a maximum of a quarter of the tank capacity and also have the faulty parts fixed by a professional. In cases where the bike is being shipped in a crate, the additional preparation activities are disconnection the battery and draining the fluids. Documenting the condition of the bike can be done by inspecting it and making a report on the condition. The marks and dents should be noted down. It is also highly recommend that you take pictures of the bike.
