Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We have shipping methods that can be used both locally and internationally. These are such as:
- Enclosed truck transport. Shipping motorcycles to both local and international destinations is possible if you use enclosed trailers. Your bikes will be secure and shielded from elements that are likely to cause damage while in transit.
- Non-enclosed truck transport. This shipping method is suitable if you are moving bikes between cities since your bikes might be exposed to damaging factors if open-air trucks are used to move bikes over long distances.
- Train transport. Shipping motorbikes via rail is suitable if the owners or dealers live, work or operate near the terminuses. You can ship one or several bikes to any destination within American or foreign nations if there are connecting railways to the destination.
- Air transport. Our air shipping option is the best bet if you abhor late deliveries. We can move bikes using cargo planes locally or globally.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Remove all dirt on your motorcycle by wash it off with clean water, mild detergent, and a clean soft fabric.
- Check for slow punctures because if the tires deflate during shipping, the soft-ties might become loose and cause the motorcycle to fall off; hence, causing damage on it.
- Charge the battery to full capacity. However, if you choose to ship the bike using the crated method, you should remove the battery and ship it separately.
- The motorbike should be in neutral gear when loading.
- Note down any damages on your ride and date the records.
- Check for fluid leaks. If you find any leakage, have it fixed by a bike expert.
- Make sure the breaks are in a good working condition.
- Arrange the documents requested by the shipper – operation manuals, licenses, and warrants.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Tracking services: You have the right to know the state of your motorcycle during shipping. Request to know if the shipper uses tracking systems to trace customers’ motorbikes during transit. Ensure you can also log on to their online system and view the location of your cargo.
- Licensed services: A license is a document issued by government agencies to show that the business meets all the requirements to serve customers. Ask to check the certifications of the shipper before you sign the shipping contract. The license should bear original seals and genuine signatures of the government officials.
- Complete customer service: When hiring a company for bike shipping, they should offer you services that meet your demands. Be keen of the way you are handled by the shippers too. From packing to loading to shipping, and lastly delivery, the services must be topnotch.
