- The motorcycle not being used as the main means of transport when the owner is moving or relocating.
- When the motorcycle dealers want to add to their stock or when they ship bikes to their clients.
- When a motorcycle has been salvaged or is inoperable, and has to be shipped with care to a mechanic for repairs.
- When the participants who are attending a motorbike event have to ship their bikes to the location in which the activities will be held.
