Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Shipping involves using some methods like:
- Crated transport. The motorcycles are shipped after packing them in palleted crates. The pallets are usually built using soft wood. Padding is further done in the interior for added security.
- Enclosed transport. Your machines get transported after loading and strapping them in sealed trucks. Sturdy aluminum is what is used to make the truck hood.
- Open carrier transport. We move scramblers after securing them in skids and loading them at the back of non-enclosed trailers. We ship bikes over shorter distances using this shipping option.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Bike cleaning is normally the initial stage of preparing your motorbike. Cleaning will expose all flaws on the machine.
- Write down the exposed defects – after repairing what you can. Copies of the same should be made just in case the original copy gets lost.
- Another form of recording the condition of your motorcycle before shipping is through taking images of the motorbike. Try and capture every side; front, back, and sideways.
- Bikes with filled up gas tanks can result to spilling of the fuel during the journey and causing fire accidents. Reducing the fuel up to ¼ will not only eschew case of fires, but also reduces the bike weight and as a result the shipping cost.
- Ensure there are no hazardous fluids shipped in the bikes. These might cause damages on the motorcycles.
- Charging the battery is what every shipper wants from you ahead of hauling. They don’t want to struggle starting a bike with less power.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- When looking for a shipper check if the equipment used are standard. Sub-standard equipment gets jammed more often and might lead to the damage of bikes as well as delays. Avoid counting losses by using motorcycle hauling companies that service their handling tools regularly.
- Possession of permits and licenses is a must-check before hiring any shipping service. Ensure they are validated and offered by authorized government agencies and federal agencies like the Federal Highway Authority.
- Check the number of motorcycle hauling methods present and determine if the available options match your needs. Hire shippers that offer several packages. You can as well combine two options to get a solution that best matches your needs.
