Many bikers in Schiller Park often need to move. When they move they don’t want to leave their loyal rides behind. Some have tried to ship the bikes using their own ways but there has always been a tad of a grey spot in one procedure or the other. Their motorcycles have been dropped, delivered dirty, scratched, marked up, and at times ridden.
It is necessary to use a professional service when shipping your motorcycle. The company will load the motorcycle with a keen eye for detail, and in many cases, there is an insurance policy on standby. You will be compensated if any damage is caused on your motorcycle.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
The guide below features some of the most efficient shipping options that we offer. Read through each and then pick the one that matches your requisites and budget.
- Enclosed shipping. The safest method to move your motorbike is in an enclosed carrier. Before loading the bike, it is secured to a pallet using heavy-duty belts. The pallet is slated for the tires to fit into. This ensures there is zero movement while on the move.
- Open-air shipping. This shipping method is a perfect alternative if you are looking for a budget option. The good thing about using a lowboy or open van is the ability to examine your motorbike while on the move.
- Crated shipping. We have the best crate builders you will ever meet. They will create the wooden boxes to measure after taking measurements of the bike. They are sturdy and offer the safety you need for your motorcycles.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Shipping a motorbike requires the owner to complete some very vital procedures on their ride. The tasks are very important for the security of both the bike and the drivers. They include:
- Washing your ride - This is a simple task that should never be overlooked. Motorbikes are often exposed to all sorts of dirt making the exterior look unsightly.
- Empty your motorcycle’s gas tank or leave it at a quarter full. This keeps everyone safe and protects the machine.
- Invest in a powerful digital camera to take pictures of the bike before shipping. The images will help you know if the motorcycle has acquired any damages during shipping.
- Write down all the damages and special operations of the motorbike.
- Remove all the valuables on the bike, fold in the side mirrors, detach all the fragile accessories, and leave the motorbike in neutral gear.

- Every bike owner needs their bike delivered within deadlines. So, you should be looking for a hauling company that is known to always beat deadlines.
