The available methods of motorcycle transportation
We can use the following motorcycle transport solutions to ship your bike.

- Water transport, which is the most common option for overseas shipments. The delivery time may be longer than expected depending on the conditions at sea and the efficiency of the operations at the receiving port.
- Rail transport, which is a convenient alternative to shipping via road because it is not characterized by delays or any congestion along the way.
- Road transport, whereby our drivers ensure that the bike is delivered within a reasonable time. They also pass through the most direct routes that have the least congestion. This helps in reducing the transit time and keeping the fuel consumption at optimum levels.
Getting your bike ready for shipping
The following are some of the ways in which you can get your bike ready for shipping: checking the engine, the fluid levels and the tire pressure. You should also check if the gas is at a maximum level of a quarter of the tank capacity. All your personal belongings and motorcycle accessories ought to be removed from the bike. The motorcycle should also be cleaned, inspected and photographed so as to document its pre-shipping condition. This is useful especially in the event that you will have to fill a claim form should your bike be damaged when it is being transported. When shipping the bike in a crate, you ought to disconnect the battery and drain the fluids. All these tasks are to be done so as to ensure that the bike will be in a condition fit for shipping. Additionally, motorcycle preparation is done so as to minimize the risks of accidents occurring due to situations such as the leakage of fluids.
