Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open-air/uncovered transport: When moving bikes using lowboys or open vehicles, it is exposed to external damaging factors. The method is the perfect way to move your bike, particularly when transporting locally. We tie the bikes using sturdy belts on the rear and front tires and ship them to the required address.
- Crated bike transport: When you choose to transport your bike in a crate, we normally use wooden crates. We build the crates using soft wood to avoid scratches and damage to the cargo. The Interior is fitted with cushions for extra protection.
- Container haulage: This is a perfect shipping option when you are looking to transport your motorbike across the ocean to overseas nations. You can use small or big containers depending on the number of motorcycles you are shipping.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Here we will help you know how to prepare your motorcycle when you want it transported.
- Clean the entire motorcycle. Afterward, dry the bike to avoid the formation of rust on the metallic parts.
- Check for possible damages such as dents, scratches, and cosmetic damage.
- Record the damages in a notebook and make copies that will be given to the shipper and the recipient.
- It is recommendable to use a high definition camera to take pictures of your motorcycle.
- Do the maintenance to ensure the bike is in a good working condition.
- Take any valuables from the bike and store them in a safe place.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The shipper’s credibility. The key to success for every bike shipment is transparency, good work ethics, and trustworthiness. You want to be sure that your proposed shipper entails all these characteristics. For instance, if they are running late or something is amiss, the coordinator should let you know without delay.
- The hauler’s experience. Choose shippers who have lasted for a long time in the shipping industry over haulers who are in their early stages. The truth is that being in a business for long gives you the needed experience to handle circumstances professionally and make a wise decision if there are tricky situations.
- The shipper’s promise to protect the privacy of clients. When you plan to partner with a shipping company, you are bound to give out sensitive information such as your personal number or address. The shipper should be respectful enough not to share your information with anybody at all costs. Be sure your shipper has not been accused before for giving out clients’ private data or using it for other purposes.
