We entail a vigorous system of transporting motorcycles that has guaranteed safe deliveries for the past three decades. We have handled zero cases of missed shipping, and where delays might have occurred it is either at the customs or fault from the bike owner. We strive to surpass customers’ expectations. Before we joined the industry, many bike owners got stranded whenever they were looking for shipping services. However, we have overhauled the experience. Clients can now sleep soundly knowing that their motorcycles are in safe hands.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Before picking a shipping method, the bike owners should ponder on their transportation needs so as to make the best decision. This hangs on the fees, security level, and individual preferences. The options available are:
- Crated bike transportation. A common method for motorcycle shipping that requires the bike handler to invest in a forklift or lift gates.
- Open-air motorcycle transportation. Use of open trucks is the surest mode of transporting a myriad of motorcycles in one trip. With this method, the cargo is strapped up on a flatbed and towed by a truck engine.
- Enclosed trailer transport. In every air-ride trailer, you will find modern day equipment that shields bikes in our hands from possible damage. The trucks are covered and no damage agent can act on the motorbikes.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Be sure to clean all bikes, and then dry them carefully and thoroughly.
- Before packing, take time and inspect the motorbikes. If you find any damages prepare a written record. Give your shipper a copy of the record.
- To add onto the notes, take a lot of clear pictures. Photograph from different dimension and remember to zero in on the damaged parts, if any.
- Transport the bike with a charged battery. However, if you use crated transport, shippers recommend that you pack the battery in a well-labeled and spill-proof container. The acidic solvent in the battery could get spilled and corrode the bike’s or truck’s surfaces.
- Ensure the alarm gets disconnect or detached from the bike before shipping. Remember to label the holding case if you detach it.
- Keep both tires well-inflated. Inspect them for slow punctures, and fix them if any.
- Before packing the motorbikes, withdraw all the fluids.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Be keen on the motorcycle moving company’s registration details. Confirm the details with Auto Movers and Storage Association. The federal agency controls all moving companies in the United States. They vouch for utmost safety and first-class customer service.
- Hire a motorcycle shipping company with a great reputation. Do not attempt entrusting your bike to them if their experience is nowhere near 20 years. Check their catalogue to find out the number of bikes they have shipped.
