A shipping company can also provide their customers with insurance whereas without coverage, losses or damages cannot be financially replaced.
Consider Purchasing Insurance.
Once you contact a transport company, make sure to ask about what insurance they have available. Since the law requires transport companies to obtain a valid insurance certificate, make sure they can present it before signing a contract with them. In most cases, if damages occur to the inside of the vehicle, the shipping company will not be required to reimburse the owner.
To avoid damages from occurring to the interior of your motorcycle, make sure to remove all personal items. If items are left attached to the bike and they get damaged, the shipping company is also not required to reimburse the owner for damages. Your insurance provider might cover your motorcycle for transport, but make sure to contact them and ask before jumping to this conclusion.

Always Inspect Your Motorcycle Prior to Shipping.
Before your motorcycle goes into the control of the shipping company, you will want to be sure that you made note of your bike’s condition. The best way you can obtain this information is by washing your cruiser before taking photos or video. Make sure to inspect the bike under sufficient lighting. Usually, documenting the condition of your motorcycle is best during the day time.
