It’s too difficult to transport a motorcycle without increasing its mileage or causing it harm. That’s why there are many dependable transport companies in and near the City of Temecula.
A motorcycle shipping company has everything they need to deliver vehicles all over the nation. Hiring them for services is your bike’s greatest chance at being delivered safely.
There are other ways to assure your motorcycle’s safety. This is aside from choosing a reputable and dependable transporter to ship through. Preparing the motorcycle according to the standard procedure is important. This assures the vehicle's shipped off in its best condition. It also protects those performing the shipping process.
- Clean the motorcycle off thoroughly.
- Take off anything that didn’t come with the bike originally.
- Gather contact information from the driver.
- Take note of your motorcycle’s condition. Take pictures and write down damages.
- Leave the gas tank only ¼ full. Fuel adds too much weight to the vehicle and puts those involved in the shipping process at risk.
Must I Be Present for the Pickup and Delivery of the Motorcycle?
Nearly all transport companies need your presence during the pickup and delivery. You can choose another responsible party, but you must inform the transport company and present the proper documents. Your transporter will guide you through the requirements and process for these circumstances.
Additional fees might apply to anyone changing the plan already confirmed with the transport company. Make sure that you talk over the details with the transport company first. Call customer service if something changes during the shipping process and the details will be sorted out. Most transporters will customize the transport to ensure a satisfactory experience.
