Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Crated motorcycle transport. Owners of fragile motorcycles mainly use this method for shipping. Bikes are safe when packed and shipped in softwood pallets.
- Enclosed truck transport. This is a good shipping option for owners of pricey motorcycles. It is hard for motorbikes to get damaged when strapped inside a metallic container or hood.
- Open-air truck transport. The young riders are very fond of this shipping method. Who wouldn’t want to catch a glimpse of a custom dirt bike? We however advise bikers not to use this method when the weather is not fine.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Clean the motorcycle’s exterior and engine. All damages get exposed after cleaning.
- Take a blank sheet of paper and record all the damages. Duplicate the list and give the shipper a copy after appending your signature.
- Take pictures and ensure they are from various angles and that the damaged parts are photographed.
- Disable all security devices fixed on the motorbike. They are such as alarms and GPS.
- If you find any part that is loose or delicate, unscrew it and have it packed and shipped separately.
- Governing bodies in the shipping industry recommend that bikes should be transported with fuel not exceeding ¼ of the full tank capacity.
- Fluids under the corrosive and inflammable categories are not to be shipped in the bikes. Siphon them in well-labelled bottles for future use.
- Battery guidelines differ from hauler to hauler. Charge the battery and check with a voltmeter. If you use crated shipping, ship the battery in a separate container.
- Arm yourself with a personal insurance policy and other travel documents like operating manual and licenses.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Look for companies asking for affordable motorcycle shipping fees. They should offer free shipping quotations without obligations attached. There should be no hidden fees, and the fees should not be way below or above the current market rates.
- Find a shipper that offers insurance coverage for every bike. Ensure that the insurance policy is valid and the insurer has a clean record. Remember to find out the type of risks covered by the said indemnity.
- Ensure the hauling service depends on quality equipment in their shipping exercises. Bikes are in safe hands especially where the soft ties are durable, the lift gates are serviced often, and hauling trucks are inspected before every trip.
- Checking the reviews by prior users expounds on the type of shipper you are dealing with. If you find out that the reviews are positive, then you can hire the services. But if the reviews are negative expect nothing short of disappointments.
