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.
Every Powersports unit whether it be a Dirt Bike, ATV or UTV comes in a metal frame crate from the factory so they are fairly easy to ship. What is great about this method is 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. Most ATVs require 4 wheels to be mounted then the handle bars. Everything else is done for you from the factory. There is also assembly manuals available and free phone/email support to help you complete the last 5% of assembly.
And don’t forget, we also offer full assembly on all bikes, ATV's & UTV's. This means we fully assemble the unit, do the first oil change and ship it to you on a pallet. All you would need to do is unwrap the bike, add gas, start it and complete the break in process. This is becoming our customers preferred method as most people like convenience of receiving their bike ready to run.
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!
