Safe And Reliable Albany Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Camping in Albany is such a marvelous experience. If sight-seeing is your cup of coffee, then you will have a golden chance of seeing paradise – up-close and personal. Using a bike to tour around your destination could also spice up the experience. A motorbike can access narrow roads where your four-wheeler struggles to keep up with. Now, how do you take the bike with you to Albany?
You have probably vetted many shipping companies before you landed on A-1 Auto Transport. We are the best and do not mince our words when we say that almost all shippers you brush shoulders with are cons. Are you wondering why? Because none has set standards above ours and that is it!
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Depending on your preference, budget, destination, urgency and type of bike, you can use any or a combination of the following moving options.
- Shipping bikes through air. As much as this shipping method is one of the safest, it can cost you an arm and leg. It is also the fastest option on our list.
- Shipping bikes though water. This is one of our slowest but also low-priced shipping methods. You can choose to use this method if you don’t mind waiting for a couple of weeks to receive your motorbike.
- Shipping bikes through rail. Yet another method that is quite slow but pocket friendly. Combined with terminal-to-terminal delivery option, you can have your bike shipped even on a tight budget.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
No cause for alarm if you are puzzled on what to do when a shipper requests you to prepare you bike in advance. While the shippers offer the precise preparation steps to undertake, here are the basic and simple tasks to do.
- Only ship the bike after a thorough cleaning. Dirty bikes give us hard time at the customs. You also risk getting fined.
- Keep the needed documents within reach so that you can accelerate the moving process when the shipper appears.
- If there are any faulty parts, remember to list them down. The driver should be given a copy detailing this information.
- Many insurance companies look for every way to avoid releasing compensation. High definition images can save you when making a claim.
- Alarms should no go off while the bike is in transit. Remember to disable all security systems on your bike. You can also show the shippers how to disconnect the alarm in case you are uncertain of whether it was done well.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Reasonable shipping fees. Never fall for companies that promise to offer you excellent shipping services with oddly low prices. You are likely to get shocked when the prices shoot up during delivery. Ask for a fixed fee that will cover all the shipping activities.
- Comprehensive coverage. Shippers who know the real value of bikes will have their services insured with reputable insurance firms. This ensures the customers are calm all through the journey.
- Valid certificates and licenses are vital. Imagine using a shipping company that is not known to the authorities. How will you report to them when they fail to deliver your bike? Avoid getting stranded by using only shippers that have valid licenses from the US Department of Transport.
