How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Different companies have different preparation methods. It is important to have the bike ready before shipping to minimize fee surcharges or even damages on the motorcycle.
- A clean motorcycle is easier to ship. Clean the wheels and mudguards as well to ensure all dirt is removed. It is easier to inspect existing damages on a clean bike than on a dirty one.
- Complete the inspection step. Look for any damage on the bike such as dings, discoloration, scratches, chips, dents, and other cosmetic issues.
- Take photographs as a way of documenting the existing damages. Capture the front back, and side views of the bike.
- Ensure the tire pressure is appropriate. Do not over inflate or under inflate. Inflating the tires wrongly might ruin the tires.
- Disable the alarm system, remove the GPS system, the after-sale add-ons, and loose parts.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
We have compiled some tips you can use to ascertain that a shipper is legitimate.
- Check the shipper’s reputation. Several shipping companies publish ratings from previous customers online but you don’t have to trust everything they write. Therefore, to be absolutely certain, look for online reputation on trusted sites like My Moving Reviews, or Google reviews. Always go with A+ rated haulers.
- Check if the hauler is registered. Better Business Bureau is the appropriate place to check whether the motorcycle shipping company is registered.
- Insurance and liability. Before entering into a deal with any motorcycle hauler, ensure that they are bonded, licensed, and insured. In the unfortunate event that the hauling truck is involved in an accident, you want to be guaranteed of receiving adequate compensation.
