There are an abundance of questions that you should ask transport companies that you are considering for your bike’s transport. It is crucial that you care about who you hire for the job. You don’t want to end up with a transport company that doesn’t care about the safety and timeliness of your cruiser’s arrival.
Questions to Ask Prospective Transport Companies.
- How much will the bike transport cost?
- Is your company registered with the Department of Transport?
- What type of insurance do you offer?
- How long will the shipping process take?
- What kind of paperwork and documents will I need to present?
- Is there anything I need to do to the vehicle to prepare it for transport?
- What do I do and who do I contact if my motorcycle ends up damaged while in your care?
All of the above questions should be asked while you are on the phone with customer service. It is good to understand the process that the auto transport company has in place, as well as what they have to offer before you hire anyone for the job.
Prepping the Motorcycle for Transport.
Preparing the cruiser for transport across the nation or even locally will require that the motorcycle is clean and free of dirt. Not only will the vehicle need to be free of anything other than what is meant to be a part of the bike, but it should have no more than a ¼ a tank of fuel in it. The transporters will need the bike’s key during the transporting process, just in case of an emergency.
