Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Palleted shipping. A wooden crate built from scratch and then padded in the inside will give your motorcycles great protection.
- Enclosed shipping. We understand how hot it can get when you are shipping your motorbike in a covered trailer. To circumnavigate the situation, we have fitted our fleet with air conditioning systems to protect the cosmetic cover.
- Open-air shipping. Have peace of mind when you ship your bike using our open-air trucks. Even if the bikes are exposed to weather elements, we have systems that alert us on weather forecasts, so we usually warn the owners about predicted bad weather.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
The following are the activities that will be completed as part of the preparation of your motorbikes for transport:
- Removing tough stains and grease on the motorbike with soapy water. Dry the motorbike after the clean-up.
- Packing the fragile accessories like helmets, riding suits, and reflectors in a separate unit.
- Ensuring the alarm is off before shipping.
- Ensuring the tire pressure is appropriate. If not, inflate with help of a professional pump.
- Draining all the fluids before the shipper arrives.
- Your mechanic can help you inspect the engine and fix any defects.
- Keeping the gas levels low. The gas should not be more than a ¼ of the tank capacity.
- Examining your motorbike for any discolorations, damages, or marks. Write down all those flaws on a sheet and make a duplicate. The duplicate should be given to the shipper.
- Also, take images of the bike clearly showing the marks. After receiving the motorbike, take additional pictures.
We advise that if you will be transporting motorbikes via the crated shipping method, you will have to remove your batteries. Place the batteries in special boxes to avoid spilling of the acid.
Getting your motorbikes ready for transportation is compulsory to shield them from damage while on the move. These are also safety procedures to prevent the drivers from incurring injuries during handling or transportation of the cargo. Motorbike preparations aid in hastening the transportation process and avoiding other surcharges.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Your shipping service should entail a clean track record. This guarantees you peace of mind. Peruse through the testimonials on the official website. You can henceforth have a better vision of the shipper’s services and decide while informed.
