The available motorcycle shipping methods
We use the following methods of motorcycle shipping: Air transport, water transport, rail transport and road transport. Air transport provides the fastest means of delivering a bike but it is the most expensive shipping option. Water transport is slower but more affordable compared to air transport. Road transport is the most common means of in-land shipping since most locations are easily accessible via road. Rail transport is an alternative option to shipping via road. The advantage it has over road transport is the minimal delays in delivery.
The delivery of the bike may be done using door-to-door service or terminal-to-terminal service.
Getting a motorcycle ready for shipping
Before a bike is shipped, it ought to be prepared well. This can be done by checking the engine, the level of the fluids and the tire pressure and ensuring that the gas level is at a maximum of a quarter of the tank capacity. You can also make it easier for the mover to operate your bike by noting down the specific way it should be handled, disabling the alarm system and removing your motorcycle accessories. To ensure that it will be in good condition, cleaning it and having a professional mechanic to fix it will be expected. Documenting the pre-shipping condition of the bike can be done by taking photos of it and making a report while inspecting it.
