Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Metal containers with enough room to carry many motorcycles are used. The containers can be hauled on a lowboy truck, on a water vessel, and in a cargo plane.
- Open truck method. Open trucks are used for bike transport when the client is on a tight budget and there is favorable climate for shipping.
- Enclosed truck method. Sealed trailers will save you from the anguish of a destroyed motorbike. You are saved from repairs of damaged bikes caused by weather elements and vandalism.
- Palleted method. Palleted or crated shipping is welcomed by many thanks to its secure nature. A bike in a wooden crate will hardly get damaged.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Our work is to make every motorcycle shipment a success. As such, we take the responsibility to inform our customers on how to best prepare their bikes before connecting with our agents.
- Have your travel papers well arranged in advance. Last-minute rush will lead to delayed shipping and possible surcharges.
- To keep the bike protected and to prevent other possible risks like missing out on an event caused by tardy delivery, we advise bike owners to acquire gap insurance.
- Washing of the motorcycle is a very important activity. Dirt is known to cause damage to the motorbike, especially in the joints.
- Spare enough time to inspect the motorcycle for any marks or damages. We advise owners to place the motorcycle in a well-lit area before the examination.
- Make sure the damages are well documented. These records can be handy if the motorcycle gets damaged during transit.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Credible services. Ensure they are legit and that you can depend on them. Check out the ratings on Better Business Bureau. The testimonials on their official website should enable you to tell the type of firm you are doing business with.
- Experience in the shipping industry. Great experience equates to a deep knowledge of the ropes of motorcycle hauling. Before shipping with the service, you should be very sure the truck operators know what routes to take to reduce the costs of shipping.
- A motorcycle shipping company that is caring enough will always offer plenty of comprehensible information until you are content with their services. Additionally, the guidance you are offered has a personal touch and seems practical.
- Reaching out to a representative in your firm should be stress-free and they should be willing to sort out all your concerns. Avoid hauling companies that leave you with unending questions. They will not offer value for your money.
- Check if the transport firm has a blog. Read through the articles they have published about motorbikes. You are likely to learn a lot regarding their knowledge and what the shipper knows concerning motorbikes.
