Why get someone to transport a motorbike for me if I can ride it myself? Many keen riders would much rather take to the open road themselves than commission a vehicle transporter.

Unfortunately this isn’t always possible; if you need a bike repaired and it’s a non-starter or if you’re buying a new ride online that you need collecting, the only option might be to hire a motorcycle transportation service.

Motorbike transport advice
If you’re arranging a motorbike move there are a few checks and preparations to make:

- Clean up: This isn’t so it looks nice on the back of a trailer. Cleaning your motorcycle will help you notice any damage or scratches that might have been previously hidden. What’s more, any dust or dirt on the bike can contribute to scratching paintwork during handling and moving.

- Note damage: Noting any nicks or scrapes on your bike and documenting them with photographs will let you see if your bike has been damaged during transportation once it reaches its destination.

- Fluids: Depending on the policy of the motorcycle transportation company you may or may not have to drain oil and petrol from your bike. This helps avoid any potential leakages and is best from a safety perspective. If the bike is to be ridden at all during its transit then you will need to keep some fuel in the tank.

- Tyres: Also make sure tyres are properly inflated to help prevent damage to rims; this also makes the bike easier to move.

- Extras: Before the bike move, make sure there are no loose panels or any accessories left on the bike that could easily come off during transit (some companies will transport motorbike accessories with no extra charge).

If you’re transporting your bike with its keys it can be worth tying them to the bike itself. If the transporter is going to ride your motorcycle at some point make sure it’s in working order.
