Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Transport via air. Enjoy fast motorcycle shipment every time you hire air shipping services. The method is handy for persons shipping bikes out of and into America (overseas shipping).
- Transport via water. Another form of overseas shipping, but slower and much cheaper than air shipping. Bikers looking to transport a larger number of motorcycles will not break the bank.
- Transport via rail. A type of inland shipping that is cheaper, less congested, and safer when compared to road transport. The trains can be enclosed or non-enclosed.
- Transport via road. A very common type of inland shipping in the US. Its fame is due to the ability of bikers to access many routes and roads, unlike the rail option.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
The process of getting your motorcycle ready will be a walk in the park if you follow these guidelines we have offered below:
- Washing your machine. This activity will hasten clearance processes at the customs. Also, damages will be noticed easily.
- Checking the motorbike accessories. Remove those that are hanging, protruding, and fragile. Ship them packed in safe and well-labeled chests.
- Inspecting the engine. Ensure all the mechanical functions operate perfectly. With help from a certified motorbike mechanic, you can identify the defects and fix them.
- Removing the fluids. Dangerous bike fluids especially the corrosive and inflammable ones should be pumped out to minimize chances of destruction and fatalities.
- Inspecting the tires. Ensure no slow punctures or worn-out threads are present. The tire pressure should be of the recommended level.
- Lowering the level of gas. Too much fuel in the tank may cause the build-up of fumes in the truck. Prevent possible fires by leaving only the reserve tank with gas.
- Taking photographs. HD images can be used as evidence of the pre-shipping condition. Take pictures from all angles of the motorbike.
- Acquiring gap insurance. This will be of great help if the motor carrier insurance does not cover for all risks.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The validity of the licenses. While licenses are what will show you that a motorcycle shipper is legitimate, take care and be observant of the small details when checking their validity. Are they stamped by the US Department of Transport? Are the appended signatures genuine? Be careful especially when shipping a million-dollar scrambler.
- The level of experience. Prized possessions like scramblers deserve to get handled by people who know what they are doing. Entrust them to shippers with lots of experience. Shipping experience of 20 years and above is good.
- Affordability of the services. Many customers will fail to identify a shipper with affordable services. Before you judge low rates as affordable, find out if there are hidden charges. Stick with the rates that are charged in the current market.
- The risks covered by the insurance coverage. After confirming that your shipper covers bikes with a comprehensive insurance coverage, find out what risks are covered.
