Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Crated shipping. Delicate bikes like those you view in show rooms are mostly shipped in boxes. The boxes are made from soft wood and padded in their interior.
- Non-enclosed truck transport. This shipping method is infamous for motorbikes getting damaged when moving over long distances. However, damage is not common when transporting motorcycles to nearby locations. We use flatbeds and open vehicles to facilitate your bike’s move in this affordable transportation method.
- Enclosed truck transport. This method has a higher price than the non-enclosed option. However, it prevents possible damage of bikes when shipped in areas prone to bad weather. The air-ride trucks are sealed to prevent the entry of water or wind.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Remember to remove all parts and accessories that you find loose. Ship them in safe containers. This way your bike parts will not get vandalized or lost.
- Use clean fabric and water to wash the bikes. Any present marks will be visible after washing. Remember to wipe the bikes dry.
- Make records on the visible damages. Some copies should reach the shipper’s head office after signing on them.
- Pictures of the bike in its pre-shipping and after shipping conditions are required. They can be use as proof of damage when making claims.
- Well-inflated tires play the role of a cushion while your motorbikes are in transit. Excess or insufficient air can cause damage of the tires.
- Any corrosive or inflammable fluids should not be shipped in the motorcycles. Drain them all before hauling.
- Remember to disconnect and pack in separate compartments all security devices.
- Fix a battery that is fully charged. A drained battery might result to charging surcharges.
