What Is Crated Shipping and When Is It Best Used?
With the different shipping methods offered, it is best to consider a few things. If you need many motorcycles delivered to a location at once, open air shipping is the best method. Enclosed services are best for those who want protection against weather and road construction.
The crated shipping method is best for anyone transporting a motorcycle of monetary or sentimental value. The bike will be secured to a pallet and placed inside a small shipping container. The motorcycle will be unable to move during the transport, putting at an even lesser risk for damages.
How Do I Prepare for Crated Transport?
- Wash the motorcycle well. Make sure there isn’t any dirt or grime stuck to it.
- Make a list of all damages. Take pictures of all that is visible.
- Remove the handlebars and battery if asked.
- Take off any unnecessary items such as saddlebags and other accessories.
- Disable the motorcycle’s alarm if it has one.
- Check the tire pressure.
- Make sure the tank is ¼ or less full.
