Motorcycle Shipping Services
T.A.S. can ship your motorcycle anywhere local or international. Motorcycles are palletized and strapped down with nylon straps. There are two straps to secure the motorcycle, one in front one in the back. These pallets are called skids. These skids are designed especially for shipping your motorcycle safely. The motorcycle is covered and transported in an enclosed auto transporter. Enclosed auto transporters have a lift gate for safe loading into the truck.
You need to prepare the motorcycle for shipping. Have less then ¼ tank of gas, and remove all loose parts. Loose parts are not covered by insurance nor are the drivers responsible for these items. The transporter will do an inspection report upon pick up and delivery of the motorcycle. A copy of the condition report will be left to the person or agent upon pick up and delivery.
Most Motorcycles are only covered for $5000.00. If the motorcycle is worth more than the limit, you can purchase additional coverage. Additional insurance cost $.80 per hundred dollars. This additional insurance is available prior to placing a booking order. Ask your agent for assistance.
Motorcycles shipping overseas need an original title. Motorcycles are consolidated into a container to share the shipping cost. There is no insurance when shipping overseas. Insurance is not required. However, most ocean liners offer marina insurance. This insurance is usually 3.0% value of the freight you are shipping.
