Finding the right shipping services isn’t too difficult for those looking to relocate a motorcycle outside of Kent, Washington. You will see that as you search for local transporters, you have many options available to you. Find the company with the best rates and right services. If they specialize in motorcycle shipping, your motorcycle’s shipping process is likelier to be successful.
Shipping services are a cost effective method of harmlessly transporting a vehicle. If you just sold a motorcycle, you will need to have it reach its new owner without any damages other than those already listed prior to the purchase. The mileage will also need to remain the same as told to the purchaser. The best way to assure the bike’s integrity is to have it delivered using professional shipping services.
Insurance Coverage for Shipping.
During the shipping process, all vehicles in the care of the transport company will be safeguarded by insurance coverage. This coverage is to be carried by all certified transport companies. Considering that a vehicle owner’s insurance policy is void when the vehicle insured is being handled by hands other than the owners or those insured to drive it, it is imperative for transporters to make up for this lack of protection.
If something were to happen during the shipping process that was to cause harm to your motorcycle, the damages will be covered by the insurance. All repairs or replacements will be handled after the shipping process has been finalized. If you notice any new scratches or marks that may have been overlooked by the driver of the hauler, inform them and they will gladly fill out a report in which they will turn in to the transport company for insurance purposes.
