Shipping Your Motorcycle: Why Choose Professional Movers

Motorcycle ready to be loaded for shipping

It's recommended that every customer follow a simple motorcycle shipping checklist both prior to and after the motorcycle transfer. Doing so will help the shipment go smoothly and help alleviate potential shipping issues. Below is a typical before and after motorcycle shipping checklist.

Origin Motorcycle Shipping Checklist

  • Drain Fuel
  • Empty Saddlebags
  • Place Bike in Neutral
  • Remove Keys
  • Keep Forks Unlocked
  • Retain Inventory Sheet Signed by Driver

Destination Motorcycle Shipping Checklist

  • Inspect Motorcycle
  • Note any exceptions or damage to the motorcycle

Professional Moving & Storage will provide shipping costs, transit coverage, and transit days information. Storage is also available.

Preparing for a safe and problem free motorcycle transport

Loading ramps can prove to be a risky way to load a bike that weighs hundreds of pounds. That's why Professional Moving & Storage only uses lift gates allowing your bike to stay completely still when moving from the ground to the truck and vice versa.

Once your bike is in the truck, it is carefully loaded onto a specially designed pallet and strapped down solid. If that isn't enough, we ship the bikes in air ride trailers that absorb road vibration.

Thorough inventory forms are drawn up at time of load. Customers always receive complete inventory documentation prior to shipping.

Every bike is double and sometimes triple checked before any vehicle movement begins.

The final checks reveal a bike that is ready to meet you in the new destination safe and sound.
