Insurance Coverage Information.
The vehicle owner’s insurance policy will not provide coverage while the bike is in the hands of the transport company. Transporters are required to purchase their own. They provide this coverage to all the vehicles being shipped through them. If an accident or damages were to happen, they would be repaired and paid for through the shipping company’s insurance.
Before the motorcycle’s shipping process begins, take note of all damages already existing on the bike. Take photographs of the vehicle as well. This documentation can be used as a reference after the delivery process.
If you spot damages on the bike after the delivery, inform the transport driver so that they can fill out a report. They will turn this in to the transport company after you sign it so they can help you file an insurance claim. The insurance company will pay for any immediate repairs or replacements. It's uncommon for customers to file insurance claims due to their transport, yet it's essential to have.
