While it may be possible to transport a bike individually, it is better to use motorcycle shipping services. This is because:
- Moving companies possess the relevant credentials to ship bikes to various destinations.
- Moving companies have all the resources for shipping bikes with relative ease. They are usually well-staffed and also have the right equipment needed for handling and transporting bikes.
- Moving companies have knowledge and experience in motorcycle shipping and make the process hassle-free for you.
- Moving companies are able to handle all that there is to be taken care of when moving a motorcycle, making the process less complex for you.
Motorcycle shipping methods we provide
The motorcycle shipping methods that we provide are:
- Road shipping: This is a common method for in-land shipping whereby your bike may be dropped off to your address or to a convenient terminus.
- Water shipping: This is a common method for shipping bikes overseas. It is less costly compared to shipping via air.
- Rail shipping: This is a convenient in-land shipping option. This is because when you are shipping bikes via train, you can expect minimal delays.
- Air shipping: This is a highly convenient shipping option for instances in which you would like to have your bike transported within the shortest time possible.
You can select either the door-to-door service or the terminal-to-terminal service as the delivery options.
Activities included in the preparation of a bike for shipping
The main activities that are included in the preparation of your motorcycle for shipping include:
- Cleaning the bike so as to remove all dirt and debris.
- Checking the engine.
- Disabling the alarm system.
- Ensuring that the level of the gas is at a maximum of ¼ of the tank capacity.

- Disconnecting the battery and draining the fluids (this is if the bike will be shipped in a wooden crate).
