Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Unlike other shipping companies with one or two options for shipping motorcycles, we have a myriad of them in addition to various delivery methods.
- Road shipping method. Main vessels used are trucks and vans. Our truck operators are familiar with all road networks in the United States.
- Rail shipping method. Trains are the vessels used for moving. Terminuses are placed strategically for easier dropping off and collection.
- Water shipping method. We rely on ships to transport bikes to overseas destinations.
- Air shipping method. Aircrafts are the main shipping vessels. The method is sought after because of its swiftness.
We have delivery methods to complement the methods. Note that delivery alternatives are optional and some will cost you more than others. For instance, door to door delivery service is charged higher than terminal to terminal shipping.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Remember to wash off any dirt on the bike ahead of shipping.
- Inspect the squeaky-clean motorbike for any marks, discolorations, and damages.
- Record in writing and images all the defects discovered. Be sure to use a good camera for the best image clarity.
- Switch off the power feeding the GPS and alarm devices. They drain the battery power very fast when left on.
- Put the bike in neutral gear and leave it in that state.
- Gas readings should not rise beyond the ¼ mark.
- Draw all the fluids in the motorbike. Some of the fluids pose danger to truck operators and the motorbikes.
- Fasten all loose screws, bolts, and items. They can easily drop during the trip if left unattended.
- Take away personal belongings from the bike if any. You will not receive compensation if they get lost during transportation.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Insurance policy. Your motorcycle shipping service should have a motor carrier indemnity to cover motorbikes being shipped. Also, your hauler should follow up on the compensation when customers file claims for damages or theft.
- Make sure the hauler holds valid certification from regulatory agencies that control motorbike moving in Montrose and other nations. Licenses from the Federal Highway Authority is vital.
- Great experience should be a top priority when looking for a shipping company. Your shipping service must have operated in Montrose for approximately 15 years or more.
- A legit company is one with physical presence. Their offices and agents must be present in every city, county, and country where they pitch their business.
- The kind of handling equipment used by your shipper should be of top quality.
