Always look into each transport company that appeals to you initially. You want to see if they have experience in motorcycle transport so that you can feel safe knowing they have the right credentials to safely carry out the shipping process for such a small, detailed vehicle. Their website should have all the information you seek and if not, contact the customer service to have all inquiries addressed.
The Importance of Preparing the Motorcycle According to the Transport Company.
All of those who never had to ship a vehicle before may find themselves apprehensive about the future transport. To get some peace of mind, there are a few tasks that should be completed before the bike is ever transported. Washing the dirt from the motorcycle may bring out small scratches and flaws that have gone unnoticed. Document any damages such as dents and scratches.
Tips on Preparing the Bike for Shipping.
- Remove loose objects- loose objects or accessories hanging from the bike should be removed if they can easily be broken, damaged or lost.
- If the motorcycle has an alarm system turn it off.
- Check fluids, tire pressure and battery.
When the motorcycle arrives at its new location, it should be given a brief personal inspection. The bike should be inspected for any damages that weren’t there prior to the shipping process. In most cases, nothing will be of concern. Nevertheless, if any harm is noticed, file a claim with the shipping company’s insurance agent after consulting with the transporter first.
