How to Transport a Motorcycle

With uShip, you can transport your bike in three easy steps.

1 | Create Your Listing on uShip

The first step is to create a listing on uShip. The trick to creating the best listing is to be as detailed as possible. Be sure to include a detailed description of the bike and a picture, so transport services know exactly what they’ll be moving. Clarify if your bike needs to be fully enclosed or if a flatbed option is suitable. You’ll also want to include your intended budget and time frame for delivery, as well as the pick up and delivery locations. If you require an enclosed trailer, or any other special requirements, be sure to mention this as well.

2 | Choose the Best Company

The second step is to choose the best transport company. Now that you have created a listing on uShip, qualified transporters will begin contacting you with quotes as they compete for your business. Be sure to read through their profiles before you simply choose the lowest quote. Their uShip profiles will include transportation history, customer feedback, safety records and insurance policies.

This is also a great time to ask any questions you may have as you narrow down your options. For example, how will your bike be secured? What vehicle will it be transported on? What insurance policy do they offer?

3 | Transport & Delivery

The third and final step is transport and delivery. Now that you’ve chosen the best transporter for the job, it’s time to work out the delivery details such as time, location and payment. Make sure you have clearly communicated the pick up and delivery times and locations, and that you have payment ready to ensure a smooth transaction. If you have any issues along the way, be sure to get in contact with us so we can assist you.
