What Happens If I See Damage?
The best way to determine whether or not damage was done to the motorcycle during its relocation is by creating a list of the existing damages before you send it on its way. Taking pictures of the damages is smart. Any scratches, dents or chips in the paint should be logged. Then, when the vehicle arrives at the new location, you can inspect the bike for damages. If you see anything out of the ordinary, show the driver.
When you report possible harm done to the motorcycle, the driver will write out a report in which you will sign. This report will then go back to the auto transport company. At this point, a claim can be made with the company’s insurance. They will inform you of the next move to make.
What Can I Do to Assure a Safe Transport?
In order to assure a safe transport, there are some things that you can do on your end. Other than hiring a transport company that carries a great reputation for their services, prepare your motorcycle for the transport. This will help the company assure a safer relocation.
- Take out anything that doesn’t belong in the vehicle. Remove any items that were not factory features.
- Make sure that the fuel tank has ¼ or less of gas in it.
- Mark down any damages and take some pictures. This will help with your inspection of the bike after it arrives at its journey’s end.
