There are situations in which it is necessary to have a bike moved. While you may try to move the bike using your own means, this may prove to be a hard task. The best option would be hiring motorcycle shipping services. The benefits of hiring a mover include getting experts to handle the shipping of your bike, ensuring that the delivery of the bike will be completed in good time and that the integrity of the bike will be maintained. Professionals are also capable of providing good motorcycle care. By hiring the services of a mover, you will be able to free yourself up so that you may handle other aspects related to your move. Additionally, you will not need to shop for additional services such as storage and insurance coverage since the shipping company will provide you with these.
Our motorcycle shipping methods
The methods that we use in shipping motorcycles include air transport, water transport, road transport and rail transport. Road transport and rail transport are the most common in-land methods of shipping. The advantage that rail transport has over road transport is the reliability in delivery, with no delays being experienced. Road transport is used in making deliveries to various addresses since they are mainly accessible via road. Our drivers do their best to pass through the least congested routes so as to reduce the transit time and keep the fuel consumption at optimum levels.
Pre-shipping preparation: Getting a bike ready
To get your bike ready for shipping, it ought to be prepared well. This can be done by checking the engine, the level of the fluids and the inflation of the tires. Disabling the alarm system and removing your motorcycle accessories and any loosely-hanging items helps the mover to handle the bike with ease. Additional preparation activities include ensuring that the gas is at a maximum of ¼ of the tank capacity.
Choosing a motorcycle mover
To make a good choice of a mover who can deliver your bike, you ought to select the one that is experienced in shipping bikes, licensed and insured. The mover ought to have a variety of shipping options and also provide the services at affordable rates. The company ought to have a good reputation and also be approved by the Better Business Bureau. The safety provided by the mover ought to be of a high level. You can check if they meet the safety standards by confirming if they have been registered under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT).
