Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Bike owners have a right to enjoy seamless shipping processes with these options:
- Inland motorcycle transportation. There are two major channels for this hauling option: use of trains and trailers.
- Water motorcycle transportation. Ferries, liners, and boats are used for cargo transportation.
- Air motorcycle transportation. Cargo planes are mainly utilized for moving motorbikes.
The abovementioned shipping methods can be used together with other alternatives like:
- Open-air hauling. This option involves loading cargo on trains, trucks, or water vessels that are not sealed.
- Enclosed hauling. The trailers, liners, and trains are sealed and keep damaging elements like road and weather at bay.
- Palleted hauling. Wooden crates are strong enough to shield bikes against road and weather damaging factors.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Before ringing the shippers, it is important that you prepare your motorcycle. We have offered some handy hacks you could borrow.
- Mud, grease, and tough stains can be cleared by adding mild detergent in water when cleaning. Rinse off the machine and use a soft towel to pat the bike dry.
- Be keen when inspecting the motorcycle not to miss a crack on the body. After noting down all defects, take enough images to use them as evidence if the bike is damaged.
- Experts recommend that ¼ tank of fuel is the right volume when shipping bikes. More than that can lead to fire accidents.
- Fluids, such as inflammable fluids, known to pose danger should be pumped out before the shipper packs the bike.
- The battery should be fully charged during shipping. The folks using crated method of shipping are required to remove the batteries, place them in a shatter-proof box, seal the box, and label it.
- If there are no punctures in the tires, fill them with enough air. Use a PSI device to determine whether more air should be added.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The drivers must have knowledge of every route in the city. Deliveries are made faster because they can easily use shorter roads or the ones without much traffic.
- Choose a shipper that upholds honesty in their deals. There should be no unreasonable surcharges or hidden charges. Upfront information denotes that you are dealing with a shipper that will take great care of the cargo.
