Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Road method of shipping. We have a lot of customers seeking shipping services within the United States. Since roads are the immediate means that connect them to other places the most, we recommend use of road shipping.
- Air method of shipping. Some customers will want their motorbikes shipped in airplanes especially when urgency is high. This option comes with higher charges.
- Water method of shipping. This is our most used overseas shipping method. It is slower that air shipping, so you should determine whether you need fast shipping ahead of booking the service.
- Train method of shipping. Another category under inland shipping where motorbikes are packed in cargo trains and shipped to far locations. Here terminal to terminal delivery option works best.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- The initial step of preparations is arranging all documents necessary for shipping.
- Your personal insurance coverage should also be renewed ahead of shipping.
- Take the motorcycle for cleaning and get it dried. Moisture can form rust on metallic parts.
- Find ample time to assess the amount of damage on the motorcycle. Record all your findings in visual and written form. The pictures should be clear.
- Confirm that the alarm is disconnected before shipping. A slight shaking of the truck sets the alarm off.
- Remove your personal accessories from the saddlebags and other casings on the bike.
- Drain the fluids especially the inflammable and corrosive ones.
- Check level of the fuel to determine whether it should be lowered. Leave it at ¼ tank.
- Determine the amount of pressure in the tires using a PSI gauge. Add or reduce the air if need be.
- Check the amount of charge in the battery after charging using a voltmeter. Transport the battery separately when using crated method.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- When looking for a shipper, let security be a major agenda. The shipper should have major security measures, personnel, and gadgets in place to prevent any type of theft and vandalism. Ensure the warehouses and trucks have cameras installed. The personnel are supposed to detect danger in advance and possibly thwart it from happening.
- You should be sure that your cargo is covered by a premium insurance policy. You never know when the accident will occur, or when hijackers will take control of the truck. Do not just risk it only to have your motorcycle damaged or stolen.
- Truck drivers with a good knowledge of the roads in West Park are an assurance that deliveries will be made faster. The drivers can also find alternative roads to avoid those choked by heavy traffic.
