How to Ship a Motorcycle to Hawaii
The process of shipping a vehicle as small as a motorcycle from one state to another is usually done by ground transport. However, to ship a motorcycle to Hawaii, this would be impossible. To safely have your bike delivered to the islands so you can sightsee in style, you must hire a transporter that deals with international delivery or at least have the ships necessary to safely deliver the bike to Hawaii from another state in the U.S.
Shipping a motorcycle to Hawaii is a great way to avoid using public transportation on the islands. It is also safe and usually much cheaper than most think it is. Auto transport services are cost effective and perhaps one of the most reliable and only ways to transport a vehicle professionally.
Prepping the Bike for Its Delivery in Hawaii
Preparation is necessary before the motorcycle can be shipped. While some companies may have different requirements, there are some standard procedures. Preparing vehicles before a transport protects its condition and anyone dealing with the vehicle’s delivery process.
- Washing the bike and making sure there is no dirt or deposits.
- Checking the fluids, battery and tire pressure.
- Taking pictures and noting any existing damage done to the bike before shipment.
- Making sure that the gas tank is no more than a ¼ full.
- Removing any loose items from the bike.
- Disabling the alarm system.
