Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Air shipping. The distinguishing factor of air transport from other methods is its speed in delivery. Bikes will be delivered faster, to any destination, than in all other available methods. So, if urgency is a priority in your bike shipment, choose air shipping.
- Water shipping. Unlike air transport, water shipping is a slower method of moving your bike, especially to overseas destinations. However, this is the best selection if you are looking for a pocket-friendly price to ship many bikes in one trip.
- Road shipping. According to our records, this is the most used shipping method among our customers. The major reason for its popularity is the capacity to deliver cargo to the client’s doorstep.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Cleaning the motorbike is an important step. Benefits of washing your bike are minimal problems at the customs and easier inspection for damages.
- There is a need to check the bike tires. Ensure there is no slow puncture and there is enough pressure. Use a PSI gauge to measure the amount of pressure.
- Before shipping, you should make sure that you document the state of your motorcycle; that is, the dents, dings, and cosmetic damages.
- Use a good quality camera to take your motorcycle high definition images. Take images of the bike from different angles. Do not forget to capture the damaged parts too.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
In every bike shipment, the main priority is usually the motorcycle’s safety and customer satisfaction. Always hire a bike shipment service that goes an extra mile to make sure you are satisfied with their customer service and that your bike is delivered safely.
If you want someone who will take good care of your motorcycle as if it was their own, look for shippers who own motorbikes. They know the real value that bikes come with and they handle them carefully unlike shippers who own four wheels.
Talking of shipping costs, never allow yourself to be swindled by rogue shipping firms. They are always coming up with new tactics to lure unknowing clients. Always research about the latest shipping rates announced by the Federal Highway Authority and create your budget. Other shippers to avoid at all costs are those offering suspiciously low prices.
