Our motorcycle shipping methods

The following are the motorcycle shipping methods that we use:

  • Shipping via road.
  • Shipping via rail.
  • Shipping via air.
  • Shipping via water.

All our shipping methods are as efficient as can be. You also have the option to have the bike dropped off at a terminal or to your doorstep.

Preparation of your bike for shipping

The preparation of your bike for shipping will require you to do the following activities:

  • Cleaning the bike thoroughly so as to remove the dirt and debris.
  • Removing your motorcycle accessories.
  • Checking the engine.
  • Ensuring that the tires are well inflated.
  • Ensuring that the gas level is at a maximum of a quarter of the tank capacity.
  • Ensuring that the fluids are within the acceptable levels.
  • Inspecting your bike and ensuring that its condition is good. It is advisable that you take photos of the bike to show its condition.

Note: Some moving companies may have specific motorcycle preparation instructions and thus, it would be better if you confirm with your mover on what you will be expected to do so as to ensure that your bike is in the best condition for shipping. The extra preparation needed when shipping a bike in wooden crates is draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery.

Imperial Beach motorcycle shipping services

We provide the following Imperial Beach motorcycle shipping services:

  • Enclosed motorcycle shipping, which is a very secure option. However, the additional security comes at an extra cost, which is worth it.
  • Open-air motorcycle shipping, which is a popular option. The cost is less compared to that of the enclosed motorcycle shipping option. However, it provides less protection to your bike.
  • Crated motorcycle shipping, which is the most secure shipping option.
  • Motorcycle storage services, which is an additional service that provides you with the chance to have your bike held at our facilities as you wait for it to be shipped or when it has already been transported and you or the recipient are not able to pick it up immediately.
