Get Ready for the Shipping Process.
Before you can transport your motorcycle, you will need to make sure that your bike meets the shipping standards. The regulation states that no motorcycle should have more than ¼ so you will need to burn off any excess fuel. For peace of mind, you should document any damages so that you can file a claim in the event of an accident during transit. It is also wise to top off all other fluids and check the tire pressure.
- Enclosed Transport - Shipping companies recommend that anyone interested in shipping an antique or very expensive motorcycle to purchase enclosed transport. Enclosed transport is the most expensive type of shipping, but provides the most security.
- Open Air Transport - Most customers choose this type of shipping because it is more cost efficient and still incredibly safe.
- Door to Door - On the day of transport, a truck will arrive to your home or at a convenient location near your home. From there, your bike will be delivered directly to its destination.
- Terminal to Terminal - Shippers who live close to the depot where their bike will be shipped from should consider this option if they want to save some extra money.
