Transporting a motorcycle can be done in a few different ways. Depending on the bike, it may require a delicate shipping procedure so it is best to contact a professional transport service. Not only can a professional transport company provide a few different shipping options, but they are all safe and reliable. Contact a shipping specialist to inquire about their options and a rate.
Typically, a shipping service must cope with unforeseen delays in their profession so be sure to schedule at least a month in advance. They can accommodate the specific needs of the motorcycle in the transportation process and get it delivered without incident. For those unfamiliar with how their shipping options work, a representative of the company would be able to explain it.
Motorcycle Shipping Options.
There are a few different shipping options available to get the motorcycle delivered to the desired location. There are many advantages of using a professional shipping service; the motorcycle is saved from unwanted mileage and wear and tear.
- Enclosed Transport.
- Open Air Transport.
- Door to Door.
- Terminal to Terminal.
- Crated Transport.
Depending on the motorcycle, crated transportation may require the customer to remove the handlebars and mirrors, drain the fluids and disconnect the battery. Not all Fernley shipping companies require their customers to do this however.
Preparing a Motorcycle for Delivery.
The tasks received from the transport company will give the bike the best odds at arriving to its destination without any damages. By completing these tasks the customer has full knowledge on the condition of their bike before it gets transported.
Washing the motorcycle and documenting any already existing damage is just a couple of the requirements for proper preparation. The bike’s fluids, tire pressure and battery will also need to be examined, while the gas shouldn’t read over a ¼ of a tank. Some companies will also have other requirements to complete.
