Methods Available for Shipping a Motorcycle.
- Enclosed Shipping – This method of transport is considered to be the safest. This option ensures that the motorcycle is protected from the elements and driving conditions.
- Open Air Shipping – As long as the owner does not mind their motorcycle being slightly exposed to the elements and driving conditions, it is a perfectly secure way to deliver a bike.
- Door to Door – This convenient method of shipping is where the motorcycle is picked up at a specific location and delivered directly to its next destination.
- Terminal to Terminal – This method is very cost effective but not the most convenient. If the customer does not live near the depot where the bike has been delivered to then some traveling may be required.
- Crated Shipping – This method of transport may require some extra preparation. In some cases the customer may be required to remove handlebars and mirrors, disconnect the battery and drain the fluids.
Requirements to Complete Before Shipping a Bike.
- Clean the bike from dirt and deposits.
- Remove any lose objects and accessories.
- Disable the alarm system if the bike has one installed.
- Check fluids, tire pressure and battery.
- Gas reading should be no higher than ¼ tank.
- Document and list any damages to the motorcycle.
