How do you ship Pit Bikes, Dirt Bikes, ATV's and UTV's?

Posted by Orion Powersports on 10th Oct 2015

Shipping Powersports products can seem like a difficult task and almost appear impossible. Believe it or not it’s really not as difficult as it seems. Here at Orion Powersports, we have perfected this task from shear trial and error over the last 10 years so we know what works and what doesn’t work. Just about every unit (pit bike, dirt bike, ATV, UTV, etc) will be shipped thru a freight transportation company. This is not like your normal UPS brown truck you see in your neighborhood. This is a bigger truck that has room for larger units. They are also experienced in maneuvering to your house, helping you unload the package and getting it to you safely and undamaged.

Because we ship nationwide these larger transportation trucks make it possible to buy these types of products online. Even though we have a storefront in Texas, thanks to the internet and freight transporters you don’t necessarily have to be in this location to purchase anymore. You can enjoy the same benefits of going to a local Powersports dealership and never leave your house.

All Orion & Apollo brand dirt bikes, pit bikes and ATV's come fully assembled and tested. This means we put the unit together and mechanically test the bike to ensure it works properly. Unfortunately because of freight shipping companies hazardous material restrictions, we can not add gas and start the bike but we do change the oil and turn the motor to make sure it operates properly. We have found that by doing this, it reduces most of the issues when you receive your bike, saves you time and creates an overall better customer experience. We want you to feel like you walked into our store in Texas and made your purchase.

All other brand model bikes come in a metal frame crate from the factory so they are fairly easy to ship. The bikes are usually 90-95% pre-assembled at the factory so it makes your job really easy on assembly. Most dirt bikes only require the front wheel to be attached with one bolt and the handle bars clamped down with 4 bolts. There is also assembly manuals available and free phone/email support to help you complete the last 5% of assembly.

So as you can see, shipping our products is not as difficult as it seems. We have shipped thousands of shipments over the years and have perfected this method so you can shop with confidence and know that your unit will arrive exactly how you ordered it.

NOTE: Every company and every shipment we send out has also been insured. While it is rare, if any damage occurs, your item will be fully covered, PERIOD!
