Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Wooden-box shipping. Commonly known as crated shipping, this method of moving motorcycles guarantees maximum protection to bikes while in transit. The pallets are crafted from scratch or you can as well hire already-built boxes.
- Some will call this method ‘enclosed shipping’. It is relatively more expensive than other inland shipping options. This is because of the extras offered by the service providers. Extras include the air-conditioning and Full HD cameras for optimum security.
- Flat-bed towing. Many people in Half Moon Bay use this method of shipping. Not because they would love to make people’s necks hurt – due to the craning to have a look at the bikes – but, the region has very fine weather all through the year.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Use clean water, some mild soap, and a cotton cloth to wash the bike. Rinse the bike with fresh water and dry it afterwards.
- Examine the motorcycle closely to check for marks and damages.
- Jot down the visible flaws and notify the shippers about the same.
- Use a camera with a good resolution to photograph the motorbike. The pictures can save you trouble in the event of an accident.
- Removing the alarm before shipping will not only prevent it from going off, there will be no cases of damages.
- Bike fluids range from corrosive kinds to inflammable Imagine the amount of damage that can happen if they get spilled on the motorcycle.
- Well-inflated tires prevent possible damage to bikes due to shaking. Be careful when adding air as over inflating or under inflating destroys the tires.
- Too much fuels causes build-up of fumes in the vehicle. Explosions might occur if temperatures in the vehicle get too high.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Cheap motorcycle shipping prices are very tempting especially to new bike owners or those who have never used shipping services before. Such low costs always have hidden costs attached. Look for haulers with prices that are parallel to what other shippers ask for in the current market.
- Avoid getting trapped with repairs of your bike after it is damaged while in transit by using shippers with insurance policies. Go ahead and ask for details like the amount of maximum compensation. You might get surprised that they cannot afford to compensate for a pricey motorcycle.
- Inquire about the experience of the shipper. Anything below 10 years is most likely just a-van-and-man establishment. The workers should also have an acceptable level of experience.
