Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle

- Air shipping: This is the best option when express delivery is required.

How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
To cater for the safety of your bike as well as the safety of the team that will handling it during shipping, it is advisable to prepare it well. This preparation includes:
- Washing your bike so as to remove dirt and debris.
- Removing the motorcycle accessories and your personal belongings.
- Checking the tire pressure.
- Checking the engine.
- Checking the fluid levels.
- Confirming that the gas level is at a ¼ of the tank capacity or less.
- Having maintenance work done on your bike by professionals.
- Inspecting your bike and taking photos that clearly show its condition.
Note: Since different shipping companies have different requirements, it is best to confirm with the mover that you will hire if there are any specific preparation activities that you might have to do before they take the bike into their possession for shipment. When shipping using the crated shipping option, extra preparation activities will need to be done. You will be expected to drain the fluids and disconnect the battery.
