IMP tips

Avoid going through an agent while booking our bike in the train. First go to the parcel office fill out the form and pay the required fee for which receipt will be given. While filling out the form you will have to declare the value of the motorcycle. 10% of declared value will be charged as insurance fee. You can mention whatever value you want to and not necessarily the value on your insurance policy. Then look for an agent who will pack and load the motorcycle in the train. Loading fees are included in the parcel fee however it is best to pay an agent a little more so that he will load the motorcycle carefully.
For packaging the motorcycle – an agent can pack it with gunny bag and cardboard cartons. You can also get your own packaging material and ask an agent to pack it for you. A good option is to go to you motorcycle dealer and ask them for old packaging material. Make only part payment in advance to the agent and balance pay him only once the motorcycle is loaded in the train.
The petrol should be completely drained out of the motorcycle before packing it.
At some railway stations they make it necessary to disconnect the battery and put a metal plate on packaging motioning consignee name destination and contact number.
Always remove the motorcycle mirrors as these may or may not get damaged during transport.
It is best to carry original and photocopy of required documents.
