Whenever you are in need of motorcycle transport, consider some of the magnificent options around Evanston, Illinois. The transport companies offer an array of services designed to give you a more personal experience, one that will safely and quickly get your motorcycle to its destination.
For faster shipping services, ask about guaranteed delivery or expedited transport services. These will help to assure your motorcycle is put at the top of the list as high priority. The transport company will make sure that the motorcycle arrives safe and sound by the time it is expected.
5 Tips for Preparing the Motorcycle.
- Clean the motorcycle off thoroughly.
- Take off anything that didn’t come with the bike originally.
- Carry the Bill of Lading and gather contact information from the driver.
- Take note of your motorcycle’s condition. Take pictures and write down damages.
- Leave the gas tank only ¼ full or even less. Fuel adds too much weight to the vehicle and puts those involved in the shipping process at risk.
Do I Have to Be Present for the Motorcycle’s Pickup or Delivery?
Most companies will require that you are present during the pickup and drop off. Nevertheless, if you can’t personally be there, you can designate another responsible party. This must be confirmed with the transport company and specific forms of documentation will be necessary for this to happen.
Additional costs might apply to anyone changing the plan already confirmed with the auto transport company. Make sure that you talk over the details with the transport company first. Call the office if anything happens to change during the process and the details will be sorted out appropriately.
