We often use transport experts that only deal with the transportation of motorcycles.
Cheaper firms might use a company that will incorrectly strap motorbikes which can be costly so we always make sure to use accredited transport firms.
If you are using someone to move your motorbike make sure they are using the correct style of van with strapping points located at the wheel level.
The bike should never be tightened down too much at the point its suspension is compressed.
Whilst this can be okay for shorter journeys on a longer one or whilst at sea it can damage the components.
Whilst some light misting is fairly normal for a motorbike that has been in transport, excessive leaking is a tell tale sign of poor transportation methods.
We would usually recommend getting your fork seals checked regardless once your motorbike arrives in the United Kingdom.
If you have any questions or would simply like a quote to get your motorbike transported to the United Kingdom and then tested, and then registered, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
