There are probably more motorcycle shipping professionals in your Garland than you realize, but you can easily find out who to hire by researching for services on the web.
Newspapers are also a good source to find out who you can trust with your motorcycle. Always beware of phony companies and avoid companies who do not provide customer reviews online.
How to Get an Accurate Quote.
Provide the shipping company with details about your motorcycle and what you expect out of their services. The distance between Garland and its final destination will affect the total cost of shipping. If you have no prior experience with shipping a motorcycle, a representative will be able to recommend a shipping solution that meets the needs of your bike.
Methods Used to Ship Motorcycles.
- Enclosed Transportation- This is the most expensive way to ship a motorcycle, but it ensures the most protection against the elements and theft.
- Open Air Transportation- This is a less expensive way to get your bike out of Garland, but all of the bikes onboard will be exposed to the elements and driving conditions.
- Crated Transportation- This is a popular shipping option, but it does require the shipper to drain the fluids, disconnect the battery and remove the mirrors and handlebars.
Tasks to Complete before You can Ship a Motorcycle.
Shipping companies want all of their customers to have a great experience so by completing a small list of tasks you can ensure that your experience will be a good one as well. Take pictures of your motorcycle so that you can make sure that your bike arrives in the same condition that it left it. Disable any security features installed on the bike and make sure to remove any personal property.
