Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We use the following methods to ship your motorcycle:
- Shipping via road: This is the most common method. We have drivers who are familiar with the least congested and shortest routes, thus getting your bike to you within the shortest time possible.
- Shipping via rail: It is a cheaper method compared to road transport. You may opt to pick the bike at the railway terminal or have it delivered to a location that is more convenient for you.
- Shipping via air: Fastest shipping option and suitable when traveling overseas or when the bike is required to be shipped within short timeframes.
- Shipping via water: Slower shipping option which is suitable when delivering a bike to and from countries that have ports.
You may opt to have your bike shipped in crates, in enclosed containers or on open air containers. While shipping via road, we have the following delivery options; terminal-to-terminal and door-to-door.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Preparation of your motorcycle for shipping is an important activity because it ensures the safety of those handling your bike will be met. It also helps in ensuring the safety of your own bike. This activity will include the following tasks:
- Having maintenance done on your bike by professionals.
- Washing your bike to remove dirt and debris.
- Checking the engine and the tire pressure.
- Checking the fluid levels.
- Ensuring that the level of the gas does not exceed ¼ of the tank’s capacity.
- Draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery (this applies if you will be using the crated shipping option).
- Disabling the alarm system.
