Various circumstances may compel you to hire professional hauling companies to move your rides. Examples of these situations are:

Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We have listed below our transport options that clients can pick subject to the shipping needs, weather, and budget.
- Air shipping. We use this method if there is a dire need to move the bikes within a short time. Air transport is very reliable for international shipments.
- Water shipping. Shipping on ships over oceans and seas is very cost-effective particularly when transporting several motorbikes to nations with harbors.
- Rail shipping. Use this shipping option if you loathe snarl-ups seen in road transport. You should also know that this method is cheap.
- Road shipping. This is a popular shipping method among people in the USA because shipping vehicles can access almost every location on land.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Ahead of the transportation of your bike, you should do some preparation activities such as:
- Detaching all delicate motorcycle accessories. Pack these and ship them in separate casings.
- Checking the state of the engine. If there are faults, find a mechanic to fix them.
- Checking the level of the fluids and ensuring that they are not so high to the extent of causing harm.
- Inflating the tires until they are filled with the recommended amount of pressure.
- Performing maintenance checks to make sure that the bike is in excellent condition before hauling.
- Conducting an examination of your motorbike and taking crisp images.
- Draining or reducing the fuel to a quarter of the gas tank.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Presence of proper certifications and permits. Appropriate accreditation documents are what your hauler should possess. The shippers should have licenses for them to ship motorbikes in Park Forest.
- Motorcycle shipping services should be affordable. Due diligence is advised when requesting for shipping estimates from shippers. The price approximations should be free of charge. Moreover, the shipping fees should not be more than what you can afford.
