Motorcycle Movers near Me
Without experience in auto transport and the latest advancements in the industry, successfully delivering a motorcycle is less likely. It is highly recommended that you find a professional motorcycle mover near your home or wherever the bike is stored. Most transport companies offer a variety of motorcycle shipping services. The professionals at the company will help you decide what method of transport and services are best for your motorcycle’s shipping process.
A licensed auto transport company is required to carry the minimum amount of insurance coverage at the very least. To protect the full value of your motorcycle as it’s in their care, ask if you can purchase additional insurance protection. If you’re extremely worried about the condition of your bike, you may want to consider a form of enclosed transport.
Available Shipping Services for Motorcycles
- Enclosed Shipping
- Open Air Shipping
- Door to Door Delivery
- Terminal to Terminal Delivery
- Crated Shipping
- High Priority Services such as Guaranteed Delivery or Expedited Shipping
Each of these methods offers a different level of security or convenience. By transporting a motorcycle through any of the listed transport methods, people can avoid unwanted mileage and any obstacles the road presents. No matter the delivery method or services you choose, expect your motorcycle to be delivered safe and sound.
Preparing Your Bike for the Movers
- Clean off any dirt and debris on the motorcycle
- Remove any loose objects and motorcycle accessories that can scratch the bike during transport. This may include handlebars, mirrors, saddlebags, etc.
- Disable the security alarm if the bike is equipped with one as well as the battery
- Check fluids and tire pressure
- Gas reading should not be above ¼ tank before the transport
- Document and photograph any damages to the motorcycle before the shipping process. This will help you during your final inspection after delivery
When you fulfill the preparation requirements of the motorcycle mover, your bike and those caring for its delivery are kept safer. Preparing the motorcycle is essential and a transporter may delay the delivery process if it isn’t completed when they come to retrieve the vehicle.
