- Open-air shipping method. Open trucks are used to carry several bikes. Skids and soft ties are fitted on the metal rails to secure the bikes firmly.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Precautionary methods alias preparation methods are the activities bike owners do prior to shipping their motorcycles. Some of those activities are:
- Removing and packing in a safe case all the motorcycle accessories that are protruding or are loose.
- Cleaning your machine without leaving any part. This clears all dirt.
- Inspecting the mechanical operations of your motorcycle. Ask your mechanic to fix any defects found.
- Drain any fluid known to pose danger to humans or the motorcycle.
- Add air to the rear and front tires if it is not enough. Measure the tire pressure using a PSI gauge to determine amount of air.
- Disconnect the security devices like GPS and alarm.
- Lower the level of fuel in the tank to ¼ of the capacity.
- Check the level of charge in the battery using a voltmeter. Hanging on the readings, determine whether to charge it.
- Leave the bike on neutral gear.
- Hand in all the travel documents to the shippers.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
These are the questions which you should pose before hiring any motorcycle shipping service.
- Ask if they are familiar with the road network in Temple Terrace. You want to be certain that your shipper will find an alternative route or even a shortcut in case there are unavoidable hinderances like road works, traffic jam, and protests.
- Ask if the motorcycle shipping company is registered and with what agency. If the hauling firm is registered, you will know peace. Registered haulers are trustworthy. They follow the guidelines given by authorities, so incase your motorcycle goes missing, you know whom to report to.
- Ask what type of motor carrier insurance they have and what risks it covers. While insurance policies are vital to cover bikes, not all coverage will see that you get compensated. Hire motorcycle haulage services that have comprehensive insurance coverages. The indemnity will cover for fires, vandalism, and theft.
- Ask if the motorcycle shipping company has various options for motorcycle shipping. Variety shows that the shipper is concerned about the welfare of the customers. The options should range from low-priced to high-priced methods.
