Are you aware of recent online scams pertaining to shipping motorcycles or power sport vehicles? If not, there are many online classifieds in which scam artists are posting ads for hauling motorcycles for a low cost. Some advertise that they will cross state lines, while other stay local. Be very careful when responding to advertisements posted on online classifieds.
It has been reported throughout the country that many who respond to these ads in hopes to get cheap shipping of their motorcycle or power sport vehicle, fall victim to theft. Here are a few things to pay attention to when hiring someone to ship your motorcycle or power sport vehicle;
- Payment Methods- If the potential shipping company requires that you pay via MoneyGram or Western Union only, a red flag should go off. This is a very common practice for scam artists as they want no paper trail leading back to them.
- Company History- Ensuring you research the company you are hiring can reduce the risk of being scammed when transporting a motorcycle or power sport vehicle. If you are unable to speak with a real person, a red flag should be raised.
