Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open-air truck transport: In the road transport category, open trailer shipping is the cheapest option. Our motorcycle handlers will load and strap your ride on a lowboy truck using heavy-duty soft ties. You can request your bike to be secured on a ramp or skid.
- Enclosed truck transport: If the security of the motorbike is your priority, then consider using the enclosed transport method. Some bikes that require this high level of safety includes the classic, exotic, and brand-new motorcycles.
- Crated bike transport: Crating your bikes is another level of securing your bike for shipping. Here we will build a crate around the bike after making the needed bike preparations. The crates are made from softwood; hence, there is no significant addition of weight. This can also be a safe bike transport method for performance bikes.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Start the motorbike preparation process after you know what you are required to do. If you are unsure of the preparation process, ring your shipper or visit their offices to learn more. We have our recommended preparation methods which include:
- Washing your motorcycle. Use water and soap to remove all the mud, dirt, and grease from your motorcycle. Concentrate on the mud stuck on the tire threads and mudguards and do not forget the top part of your bike. Our shippers will have an easier time with the customs officers when they see a clean motorcycle.
- Reducing the gas. Bike fuel is manufactured from inflammable substances. If the fuel tank is full during shipping, fumes build up and if sparks are formed, then there will be a huge fire explosion. For this reason, we ask all our customers to reduce the level of fuel in the tanks for the safety of their bikes and our truck operators.
- The final step is recording the current condition of your motorcycle. In a notebook, write down all the present damages. Take a high-pixels camera and photograph your motorbike from all angles. Both the images and damage records should reach the bike’s recipient.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Check the level of experience your motorcycle shipper has especially with shipping your motorcycle brand. You should understand that the way one bike is shipped, for example Harley Davidson, is different from the way another brand like BMW is shipped.
- If a motorcycle shipping company is genuine, they will reveal reviews of previous clients. Most shippers have a testimonials page on their websites where customers publish their views and experiences with the shipping company.
- Remember to check if your shipper has an insurance policy. You will have nothing to worry about as all damages done to your motorbike when in the hands of your hauler will be compensated.
- Pricing is another important factor that you should consider when choosing a motorbike hauler. The hauler should offer reasonable shipping rates. Do a background research to find the current pricing in the market before sealing the shipping deal.
