Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Palleted motorcycles method. We recommend use of soft wood material when building crates. The crates should further have cushions stitched in the inside for safety purposes.
- Enclosed trailer method. Trucks are factory-made to serve the purpose. A hood is welded on the truck to shield the bikes from damage by external factors.
- Here we can use open or enclosed trucks and trains, ships, and aircraft. Bikes are well secured in containers, and then they are loaded on the shipping vessels.
- Non-enclosed trailer method. We can load the bikes on flatbeds or open-air trucks after securing them on skids. You will have no problem shipping the bikes in fine weather.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Remove any aftermarket, hanging, protruding and fragile motorcycle accessories and add-ons.
- Find a professional mechanic to do the maintenance and check for mechanical faults.
- Wash off dust, grime, and mud from your motorcycle. After that, examine it for damages. Note all damages down and take photos of the motorbike.
- Fluids that are deemed harmful to humans or to the bikes should be drained.
- Check the gas level to ascertain that it is not above ¼ of the tank.
- Check tire pressure levels to confirm it is appropriate. Do not under-inflate or over-inflate.
- Check the battery condition. Charge it well, but ship it separately if you are using crated method of transport.
- Switching off the security systems is another requirement to avoid unnecessary stopovers to disable them.
- Prepare documents that are needed for shipping before the hauler arrives to pick the bike.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Consider looking for shippers that offer world-class level of services. Your scrambler is a huge investment and it should be handled with extra caution. Such service can only be possible if you use a mover that hires skilled personnel. Other shippers have inhouse training colleges where recruits are taught about the shipping industry.
- Ensure the hauling company you hire has high-end equipment. Many companies that do not use modernized equipment have higher cases of vandalism. So, use only shippers with adequate shipping machinery.
- Always check if the motorcycle transport company you are hiring is licensed by government authorities like US Department of Transport. The shipper must have permits allowing them to move motorbikes in Parkland, other cities in the United States and other countries.
- Before hiring the company you find worthy, ensure they have presence both online and offline. Their online presence should detail their addresses, their major activities, contact information, and customer reviews. Offline presence comprises of the physical offices of the company where one can have one-on-one discussion with the agents.
