- Enclosed vehicle shipping. The trucks used for motorbike transportation get modified by the company. Modifications include extra shock absorbers under the wheels and wider chassis to accommodate many bikes on board.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
There are vital things to do before calling your shipper to pick your motorbike. They are very simple and almost every biker can do them with minimal guidance. These DIY activities include:
- Bike owners that choose to transport motorcycles using the crating method are instructed to remove the battery.
- Clear the dirt from the motorcycle by washing it using soapy water. Dry the bike after rinsing it.
- After visual inspection of the motorcycle, note down visible marks.
- Also, take a handful images using a high-end camera. The images can serve as evidence of the pre-shipping state when seeking compensation.
- Remember to deactivate the security devices like alarms. Removing them is also an option if the shipper insists so.
- Pumping the fluids out is recommendable. We would love to prevent cases of fires and corrosion.
- Enough air in the tires makes good cushion for the bike. Use a PSI gauge to determine if you need to add more air.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
The search for an ideal motorcycle hauling company should entail lots of research and pondering. Before entrusting any hauling company with a million-dollar machine, this is what should happen:
- Read through the reviews from customers who have used the shipping service before. Check the ratio of positive ratings against negative ratings. If you find that the negative reviews are more than the positive ones, then that is a red flag. If positive testimonials are leading then you can go ahead and hire the shipping service.
- Ask if the insurance policy they have will compensate for any type of damage done to your motorcycles while on the move. If you want to be safer, use a shipper with a comprehensive insurance coverage. With this you enjoy peaceful nights knowing that compensation is a must for any slight damage on your motorcycles.
- You have individual preferences when it comes to how you want your motorcycles handled during shipping. You might want to have the bike flown to the destination or even packed in crates. Get a shipper that offers the exact method you want. Customer satisfaction is key, and you don’t want to compromise on that.
