Our motorcycle shipping methods
The motorcycle shipping methods we can apply when transporting your bike include:
- Shipping via rail: A cargo train ferries the bike from one terminus to another.
- Shipping via air: A cargo plane delivers the bike to the destination within the shortest time possible. This is the fastest and most expensive shipping option.
- Shipping via road: A flatbed truck, an open truck or a motorcycle trailer which is pulled by a vehicle is used to deliver the bike.
- Shipping via water: A cargo ship is used in the delivery of the bike.
The delivery options available are door-to-door delivery and terminal-to-terminal delivery.
Shipping of a bike will require you to ensure that it is prepared well and in good condition. Motorcycle preparation is also important because this ensures that any chances of accidents occurring are minimized. The activities included in the preparation of your bike are washing it, inspecting it and taking it to the mechanic if you notice that any part is faulty. You should also check the engine, the inflation of the tires as well as the level of the fluids. If it has an alarm system, disable it. You should also remove your personal belongings and the motorcycle accessories. Ensure that you take pictures of the bike from different angles. You can opt to remove the fragile bike parts so as to pack and ship them separately. This will minimize the chances of the fragile parts being damaged. Extra preparation activities will have to be done if you are shipping using the crated option. This includes draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery.
