Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open truck shipping. This is a budget shipping method and our cheapest one too. The option allows the truck operator to inspect the cargo effortlessly. Another thing is that an open truck is lighter than a sealed one; hence, less fuel consumption to comply with environmental standards.
- Enclosed truck shipping. Transporting a motorcycle in a sealed truck is the shipping option of choice for exotic motorbikes, next-generation models, and collectors’ bikes. Bikes are shielded against bad weather and debris that might accidentally get hauled up on the highway.
- Palleted method. This is a watertight shipping method in terms of security. The motorcycle is placed in a crate structure and secured with high-quality
- This method has a similar working concept to the enclosed trucks. The only difference is that with the containerization method, one can move an entire container from one truck to another or onto another shipping vessel.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
When shipping your motorcycle, ask the shipper for the specific preparation steps they recommend. Here is an outline of our preparation methods:
- Perform maintenance on the motorbike. Use a mechanic if you are at work or not familiar with the operations.
- A thorough wash exposes hidden dings and marks. Remember to wipe the machine dry.
- A thorough inspection should be done. Take note of the pre-shipping condition and consider noting it down on paper.
- We advise on taking crisp and detailed images. Get closer to the motorbike to capture the damages.
- Have your personal items removed and stored. If these are lost or vandalized during transportation, there is no possible chance of compensation.
- Check the state of the engine. Any faults and defects discovered should be fixed.
- Ensure the tires are in great shape; enough pressure and intact threads.
- Withdraw fluids which you know are dangerous to the bike and the shippers in terms of causing corrosion or explosions.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Ask for quotes from different shipping companies when you are looking for an ideal hauler. Single out those that are asking for reasonable fees. Check the services they are offering and evaluate their worthiness. Select the shipper with the best services and the best price.
- Knowing if a shipper is legitimate is very easy. You only need to look at their licenses and permits. Check whether they are allowed by the authorities to ship in your city. Some shippers are known to forge the signature of government officials. To be double sure, why not visit a Federal Highway Authority office for clarification?
- Through experience, shippers will learn a lot of aspects compared to a novice shipper who has not yet known the real art of shipping. Do not attempt hiring shippers with below 15 years’ experience, no matter how tantalizing their marketing campaigns are.
- Show care and love to your motorbike by handing it over to shippers who have insured their services with motor carrier insurance. Probe the insurance policy to learn what risks are covered for.
