How Do I Ship My Motorcycle across the Country?

Motorcycle transport services can be found all over the United States. A seasoned transport company will have the proper licensing, certificate approvals, and insurance coverage.

Most transporters won’t charge extra to the customer for insurance coverage. It’s their way of guaranteeing the success of your bike’s transport. Find a reputable transporter to ship your motorcycle across the country.

Safely Shipping Your Motorcycle.

Some customers seek shipping services for multiple motorcycles at a time. In fact, many people benefit from discounts when they need more than one vehicle transported. Dealerships often take advantage of open air transport services. A typical hauler can hold up to 10 to 12 vehicles. Some transporters offer enclosed shipping services for multiple motorcycles too.

If you plan on shipping just a single a motorcycle, you’ll have a lot more options. Look over the transporter’s website or call and ask what services they have available for your bike’s delivery. They’ll help you customize your shipping process to make it much easier on you and your budget. If you wish to send along other belongings with the motorcycle, ask about enclosed shipping services.

You’ll need to prepare the bike before the day it’s scheduled to take off for delivery. This usually includes washing it, draining the fluids (leave gas tank ¼ full or less), checking the tire pressure, and documenting any damages.

It’s always wise to call the professionals to relocate a vehicle of any kind. They’re trained, experienced and equipped to handle the delivery with very little risk involved. Your bike will arrive at its destination quickly with absolutely no damage caused to it.
