Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
There are different methods through which we can ship your motorcycle. These include:
- Shipping via rail, which is an option in which you can pick the bike at the terminal or request for the bike to be shipped to your address.
- Shipping via road, which is the most common option of shipping. We have drivers who are highly experienced and do their best to deliver your bike promptly. We can ship your motorcycle on a motorcycle trailer, an open truck or a flatbed truck.
- Shipping via water, which is best for countries that have ports. This option works best for those who are shipping bikes not so far from the receiving ports.
- Shipping via air, which is the fastest method of shipping. Although this is an expensive method of shipping, we do our best to offer you pocket-friendly air freight charges.
Under all shipping methods, you have the option to ship your bike in an enclosed container, an open air container or in a wooden crate.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
The following are some of the ways in which you can prepare your motorcycle for shipping:
- Taking it to professionals who may do maintenance work on it.
- Washing it thoroughly so as to remove the dirt and debris.
- Checking the engine.
- Checking the fluid levels.
- Confirming that the gas level does not exceed ¼ of the tank’s capacity.
- Disabling the alarm system.
- Disconnecting the battery and draining the fluids (this applies if you will be using the crated shipping method).
The motorcycle shipping company may have their own requirements for the motorcycle preparation procedures. It is therefore advisable to check with them so as to know what is expected before handing your bike over to them.
