Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Crated motorcycle shipping. Crating is crucial especially if you do not want your bike rolled on or off the carriers. The crating process is done by preparing the bike and using softwood to build a crate. We can load your crated bike on open-air trucks, in trains or enclosed trailers.
- Enclosed bike shipping. Bikes getting shipped to far distances ought to be taken care of with a keen eye for detail. Make sure your bike is protected from road debris and severe weather. All these damaging agents will be kept at bay if you use the enclosed shipping method.
- Open-air bike shipping. This is another motorbike hauling method where uncovered trucks are used. The costs of transport are very low, but your motorbikes are not protected from factors such as weather and road elements.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Before booking for your bike shipment, this is what you ought to do:
- Check the basic mechanical operations on your motorcycles such as the steering antennae, braking, ignition, and gear shifting.
- Ask your shipping partner if they will need the bike’s keys and any other preparation steps they recommend before they pick your two wheels for shipping.
- Clean your bike a few days before the shipping date.
- Check the gas tank and reduce the fuel to a ¼ full or even lower. This depends on the tips offered by your hauler.
- All your private items should be removed from the motorcycle.
- Photograph your motorcycle and focus on all angles and damaged sections.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The type of carriers your shipper has: Your transport solution provider must have an adequate fleet of trucks. You should not find it hard to get a truck for your shipment if the company is efficient. Additionally, the carriers should always be in tiptop condition. Check if the trucks are serviced often before you hire the shipper. Your motorcycle’s safety should come first during shipping.
- Insurance coverage: If you are mindful of your bike’s safety, you will never entrust it to any shipper before confirming the type of transit insurance policy they have. The indemnity coverage will save you a lot of trouble and headache in case there is an accident while your bike is getting transported.
- Has the shipper expanded? Does the shipper have a branch in Huntington? Do they have another branch at the delivery destination? Do away with man-and-van companies! You might have a demanding job; hence, cannot collect your consignment in good time. They should have storage facilities in your town where your bike will be kept safe until you can collect it.
