The available motorcycle shipping methods
The following are the methods that we use to ship bikes:
- Air shipping, which is the fastest mode of transportation and also the most expensive. However, to ensure that you make an economical move, we get the best air freight charges.
- Water shipping, which is a slow method of transportation for overseas shipping compared to shipping via air. However, it is more affordable and suitable for instances in which the bike is not required at the destination within a short period of time.
- Road shipping, which is the most common method of transportation and it is reliably used to deliver bikes to various destinations.
- Rail shipping, which is a convenient means of transportation that has minimal delays.
Preparation of a motorcycle for shipping
Shipping a bike requires a lot of planning and preparation. One of the activities that you have to do is preparing your bike for shipping. The following are the tasks included in this activity: Removing the motorcycle accessories and all of your belongings from the bike, disabling the alarm system, checking the engine, the fluids levels and the tire pressure. You should also ensure that the gas level is at a maximum of a quarter of the tank capacity. You should disable the alarm then clean the bike thoroughly, ensuring that it has no dirt or debris on it. An inspection of the bike should also be done, where you assess its condition and take good photos of it from different angles. If you are shipping the bike in a crate, you ought to drain the fluids and disconnect the battery.
Choosing a mover
The first step to a successful move begins with your choice of a mover. To choose a good mover, look for one that is licensed, insured, approved by the Better Business Bureau and also has a good reputation. You should also find out if they have a variety of motorcycle transport solutions and if they are capable of offering tailored services.
