The perils of the highway are never predictable, which can render motorbike hauling a troublesome experience for any bike owner. Nonetheless, using an ideal service and shipping method, the motorcycle will be securely delivered.
- Containerization is mostly used to ship motorcycles by water. The motorcycle is packed in a metal container, loaded onto the ship and delivered to a port at the destination.
- Crating is somewhat similar to enclosed hauling. Here, the cargo is placed inside a wooden box, securely bound, and then loaded onto the shipping truck.
- Covered shipping is normally selected for its enclosed hauling process. Your motorcycle is loaded in an enclosed trailer and transported with guard against harsh weather.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping

- Check all fluids. Drain the oil and transmission fluids.
- Check the tires to ensure they are well inflated.

- Ensure there is not more than a ¼ tank of fuel.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Shipping a motorbike should be done with extra caution. To get a great shipper you ought to look for a number of factors like:
- Experience in the shipping industry – in addition to several years of hauling, the shipper should have shipped a number of bikes before.
