Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open-air transport: Shipping bikes via the open-air method should be done only when you are moving your bike a few states or miles away. Farther than that, you will be putting the bike at a risk of getting damaged by external elements like road debris and bad weather.
- Enclosed transport: We recommend you to pick the enclosed truck shipping method when hauling motorcycles to a far location and if your bikes are delicate. Maximum protection is offered to your machines as the trucks are fully covered on the sides and top.
- Crated transport: Some owners are not comfortable when another person touches their rides even during shipping. These individuals will opt to have the bikes crated. You can as well choose to ship your bike using the crated method if it is delicate or needed in showroom condition.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Wash off the dirt: Dirty bikes will hardly pass the customs checks and quarantine inspection. It is likely that the officers will impose hefty charges and demand the bike to get washed before proceeding with the journey.
- Detach the accessories: There are motorcycle parts that should be removed before shipping to prevent loss or damage happening to them. These parts include the alarm devices, personal items, protruding objects, aftermarket parts, and loose accessories.
- Maintenance: Bikes should be transported when in good conditions. Ensure there are no fluid leaks, the engine is in a great working condition, and the battery is well charged.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Confirm the licensing information of the shipper: According to the rules and regulations from the USA Department of Transportation, motorcycle shippers must acquire licenses via genuine methods before they can handle bikes. Avoid making enemies with the law by checking if the shipper has the needed papers. Check the DOT and MC numbers and copies of their registration documents of your proposed shipper.
- Confirm the specialization of your hauler: The shipper you look forward to partnering with must be offering only motorcycle shipping services. Be keen not to have your bikes shipped together with farm produce or fabric products. You can find this information in their registration details and shipping records. Confirm the brands which your proposed shipper can ship; some will ship only Kawasakis while others have specialized in Harley Davidson transport.
- Look for genuine handling equipment: During shipping, your motorcycle shipping is handled mainly using the equipment. If the handling tools are counterfeit chances of damages occurring to your motorcycle are high. Therefore, before handing your ride over for shipping, take time and check the machinery that your proposed shipper intends to use.
