Motorcycles need to be handled well, especially when they are being transported from one place to another. The following are some reasons why hiring motorcycle shipping services is the best option:
- Movers are licensed to operate across various states and they are conversant with what is required to make the shipment successful.
- Moving companies have the right equipment needed to transport bikes reliably.
- Moving companies provide a comprehensive motorcycle insurance cover which provides you with a guarantee of being compensated should any harm befall your bike as its being transported.
- Moving companies have the expertise to ship a bike with ease, which may be what an individual lacks.
Motorcycle transportation methods
We can transport your bike using any of the following options:
- Shipping via water, which is convenient when shipping bikes overseas and to ports which operate very efficiently, ensuring that the bike will be cleared at the port within the shortest time possible.
- Shipping via road, which is a highly convenient means of transporting bikes from one location to another. It is the most common method of transportation because almost all locations have a good road network.
- Shipping via rail, which is a highly reliable method of transporting bikes whereby you would like to avoid delays, as is the case with shipping via road.
- Shipping via air, which is the fastest mode of transportation yet the most expensive. However, we do our best to ensure that you get the best air freight charges.
How a bike can be prepared for shipping
The bike has to be prepared well before it is shipped. This can be done by:
- Cleaning it so as to remove the dirt and debris.
- Taking the bike to the mechanics who can do maintenance checks on it.
- Removing your motorcycle accessories.
- Checking the level of the fluids.
- Ensuring that the level of the gas does not exceed a quarter of the capacity of the tank.
- Checking the tire pressure.
- Inspecting the bike. It is recommended that you take photos of it and note any marks or dents that are on it.

The Seaside motorcycle shipping services
Our Seaside motorcycle shipping services include:
- Motorcycle insurance coverage services: This is a protective measure that ensures your bike will be covered in the event that any damage occurs to it.
- Open-air transport services: This is an affordable shipping option but it offers less protection to your bike.
