Being the most populous area in Colorado, as well as the capital, there is so much to offer in Denver. The city is the home of many attractions and has the perfect backdrop of mountains and beautiful scenery surrounding it. Any motorcyclist is sure to love traveling on the twisting roads through valleys and mountains.
It is always better to ship a motorcycle to Denver if you are going there to stay for a while or even live there. Riding your motorcycle there won't give you the freedom of bringing along other belongings. It will add mileage to the bike and it could possibly even become damaged from weather or road conditions during the trip. When you ship your bike, it can quickly and safely be transported to Denver for you.
Motorcycle Shipment Methods.
There are several different methods of motorcycle shipment to select from. It will depend on the shipping company you choose to go through. Many of the companies will also offer insurance for the shipment. While this a bit of an up-charge, it is well worth it to take advantage of.
- Crated shipping requires the motorcycle to be released of all fluids and for the battery to be disconnected during shipment. It is then strapped to a wooden pallet and placed inside a container.
- Open air shipping is when the motorcycle is placed atop an open bed trailer or flatbed. While this is a cheaper method of shipment, the bike will be exposed to all elements including poor weather and road conditions.
- Enclosed shipping is when the motorcycle is placed inside of a container for shipment.
- Door to door is when the company comes to retrieve the motorcycle wherever it is at and then they take it to whatever destination you would like.
- Terminal to terminal is a cheaper option where the motorcycle can be dropped off at a terminal for shipment and picked up at another terminal in or near Denver.
The Standard Requirements that Must be Fulfilled Prior to Shipment.
The requirements for motorcycle shipment are rather standard. With the exception of crated shipping, most companies have standard requirements for shipment. These must be fulfilled to ensure the safe delivery of your motorcycle.
- Check all fluids, tire pressure and the battery.
- Clean the motorcycle and make sure it is free of all dirt and deposits.
- Take off any loose items.
- Examine the bike's current condition. Take pictures and note any damages.
- Make sure the fuel tank is no more than a ¼ full.
