Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Whatever the financial plan your laid out while planning your relocation, we have something for you. After consulting our agents, these are the methods of shipping you will choose from.
- Crated method of haulage. With this shipping method, any fluids in the motorbikes must get drained. This is to prevent corrosive fluids from spilling and damaging the bike.
- Enclosed method of haulage. Motorbikes are protected from harsh weather conditions when shipped in a truck enclosed with a metallic body. This shipping method is advisable for using during distant trips.
- Open carrier method. Our open trucks are fit for shorter distances. Also, if the weather is fine we can ship for longer distances.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Be part of your bike delivery success by ensuring it is prepared well before it is shipped off to the required destination.
- Clean off the dirt from the motorcycle and use a soft cotton cloth to dry it.
- Remove the loose accessories and protruding items from the motorcycle.
- Drain all fluids from your motorcycle.
- Keep fuel in the tank low. A ¼ tank-full is sufficient.
- Immobilize the security devices on the motorcycle.
