Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We have suitable, affordable, and safe motorcycle shipping methods for every type of rider, enthusiast, and bike owner out there. Some of the methods are:
- Crated bike shipping. Our shippers are proficient in making bespoke wooden pallets whose measurements matches those of your bike. Those who own exotic bikes mostly use this method.
- Covered motorbike transportation. Our fleet of enclosed trailers can carry any number of bikes in your parking lot. Be assured that no bike will get even the slightest scratch.
- Open trailer hauling. On standby are several flatbeds with tow trucks and open trucks that can be used for short distance moving. We do not vouch for this method if you are looking to move bikes to a distant location unless you are on a really tight budget.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Motorbike shipping process is gradual, from looking for a good company, to preparing your bike, and the delivery stage. At the preparation stage, there are a few DIY steps you should not avoid for smooth shipping.
- Give the bike a thorough wash to eliminate all the dust, dirt, and unwanted debris.
- If there are parts that are hanging from the bike, have them removed or else they will break or get lost while in transit.
- The GPS or alarm system should be disconnected before loading. Be kind not to put our drivers through the torturous ordeal when the alarm goes off.
- Keep the tires well inflated.
- Have the engine checked by an expert. Operable bikes will not land our shipper into trouble with the authorities.
- Take clear pictures and ensure they show all the marks as well as the physical condition of the bike before shipping.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Here you are offered sure tips to use when searching for a reliable motorbike hauler in Douglas. Don’t get scammed!
- Efficiency of a carrier service is vital for a successful move. Check for the equipment used to handle your bikes. Good shipping companies will use the latest equipment and durable materials. All these paraphernalia should be built exclusively for bike shipping.
- Affordability is yet another factor a bike owner should be keen on before signing the dotted line. Use the current market price as the bench mark. If prices are too low or exceedingly high that is a red flag. Avoid companies with fee surcharges when delivering bikes.
