If you’re going to move your motorcycle, or have purchased a motorcycle and need to have it shipped you want to make sure you are prepared for your bike to be shipped. There are a few tips that you can follow that will help you ensure that it is safe during transit and that you have the smoothest experience possible.
Following these tips will save you time and money:
- Figure out if you want door to door shipping or delivery between trucking locations. If you don’t have a way to get the bike, or yourself, to and from trucking locations then you should ask for door to door shipping which is the most common mode. Changing between the two can safe you time and money depending on your schedule and budget.
- Ensure that you know how the motorcycle will be secured during transit. Will it be covered? Should you protect it in any way?
- Inspect your motorcycle prior to shipping. Note any dings, paint chips, or other issues and document them with pictures before it is picked up for transport.
- Clean your bike before shipping. Dirt and particulates can cause scratches if straps are used to secure it during transport.
Taking advantage of these quick tips will let you enjoy a smooth and easy motorcycle shipping experience. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us!
