Safe And Reliable Arroyo Grande Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Shipping motorcycles cannot be compared to any other kind of shipping out there. When you play a trial-and-error game, you will end up losing your cash together with the bike. Low prices are not indicators of luck and well-crafted adverts are not indicators of good services. You must walk an extra mile and confirm the facts. Before hiring a certain shipping company, confirm the type of equipment they use, inquire about their customer service and support, not forgetting the methods used and shipping charges. Picking a motorcycle haulage service like A-1 Auto Transport slashes all possible risks when dealing with shipping companies. This is a company that lingers in every bike owner’s mind.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open haulage services. A shipping option mostly used by young riders. Some want the service for show-off. Who wouldn’t crane their neck to look at a dirt bike?
- Enclosed haulage services. Some owners do not want their bikes seen by the public. They prefer having the bikes concealed so as to prevent theft cases.
- Crated hauling services. Some customers hate it when people touch their bikes while loading or offloading. Thus, they pack the scramblers in wooden boxes. Additional material used to secure the bikes include soft ties and wheel chokes.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Different motorbike shipping companies entail different requirements when it comes to methods of motorcycle preparation. If you do not know what to do, here are the most commonly used hints:
- Updating the insurance cover for your bike. We have an extra insurance coverage, but we advise owners to update their personal covers for an all-out protection.
- Reducing the fuel level to a ¼-tank at most. This comes with more benefits like reduced cost due to less weight and safe shipping devoid of fire explosion risks.
- Completely drain all fluids. With this precautionary measure, corrosion and fire accidents will not ensue.
- Having the battery charged is another precautionary measure to avoid surcharges.
- Inflate all tires in advance. Overinflating or underinflating result to damaging of the tires.
- Clear all stains and grime on the motorcycle by cleaning all the parts. No part should be ignored.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Ensure the motorcycle shipping service is registered and holds valid documents from federal agents. In the US, the Department of Transportation issues permits and the Federal Highway Authority is responsible for licensing all transportation solution providers.
- Ensure that your most preferred hauling service has endured in the business for over 15 years. This is more than enough time to perfect their art in scrambler handling and hauling.
- Check out several testimonials from previous clients. Their comments should be encouraging and showing that the shipper offers trustworthy services at any given time. If the negative reviews surpass the positive reviews, that is a red flag.
