WE CARE  ABOUT YOUR BIKE

Here’s how we make sure your treasured motorcycle arrives at destination in the exact same condition you gave it to us before transportation.

You can deliver your bike yourself in our warehouse, or if it is more convenient, we are generally also able to collect it at your doorstep.  Sometimes, it simply does not make sense from a cost or time point of view to drive the bike to our warehouse.  You’d be surprised how little it costs if we do it for you!  If you’d like to know more about this option, we can send you an offer.  Because we care, your bike is loaded in a closed van – we don’t use open trailers.

First, please make sure your bike is clean.  It will facilitate things with customs and makes it is easier to pack.  And as we all know, clean bikes just work better! Dirt can scratch paint when the bike or luggage is strapped, and we don’t want that to happen!

We inspect your bike and photograph it to document its condition before we even touch it.  If there are any scratches or dents before we pack it, we document that.  A clean bike is easy to inspect too!

Then, we load your motorbike onto a specially designed steel crate.  This allows us to keep the wheels installed.  Keeping the wheels on the bike makes it faster, safer and ensures no critical parts like ABS sensor or brake disks get damaged.  The only thing that might have to come off is the mirrors and sometimes the windshield.  Those are carefully wrapped in protective packaging material and strapped to the bike. The bike is strapped inside the cage. We are – to our knowledge- the only ones not disassembling wheels for transportation.  Yes, it costs more, but we feel it’s worth it to make sure your bike arrives undamaged.

If the luggage is wider than the crate, as sometimes happens on big bikes, we remove the luggage, wrap it and strap it inside the cage.  We make sure the luggage does not rub anywhere so it also arrives undamaged. This is why each piece of luggage has to have a clearly readable sticker with your name and the bike license plate number on it.  Remember that used tires can never be shipped as luggage.

The crates are then loaded into our container.

At destination in the customs warehouse, we unload the crates, remove the bikes from the crates and reattach the mirrors & windshield – if they had been removed.

You will have to inspect your bike, make sure it functions safely, and be given a delivery form to sign. This form states that you have received your bike in the same condition as you handed it over to us and that it functions as the manufacturer intended.  There are also a few formalities to complete with customs and you are ready to drive off into the sunset!

We know your time is precious – we will not waste it.  We are only a call or message away if you have any question – or even if you want to challenge us to design your custom expedition to any destination of your dreams.

We do what we say and say what we do: we don’t use fine-print and the price you signed for is final and all-inclusive, without any surcharge or fees.

We know you want to make the most of your hard-earned vacation: we take care of everything once we have your motorcycle.  You just have to be present for handover and ride away.

5 things you should do:

  • Ensure the bike is delivered to our warehouse by the due date,either driving it yourself or using our transport option.
  • Give us a clean bike.
  • Clearly label all luggage piecesclearly with your full name, and the bike license plate number.
  • Inspect your bike at destination, make sure all works well and be comfortable there are no shipping damages.
  • Sign the delivery form.

 

MOTOBIRDS takes care of everything else.
