Luckily, motorcycle transport services out of Avondale are available at low costs. It is important that you pay close attention to which company you hire to handle your motorcycle for a transport.
There are shady transport companies out there who will take your money and not give a care as to what condition the bike ends up in during the process of shipping. There are ways to tell the shady transport companies from the more reputable ones.
Characteristics of a Suspicious Transport Company.
- They aren’t approved by the Department of Transport.
- They do not have the proper licensing or certifications.
- They ask for a large down payment (most companies will not ask for any).
- They do not offer insurance coverage.
- They don’t have the right equipment.
- Their employees and drivers are not trained.
- They don’t have a website.
- They do not uphold positive reviews and ratings online.
- They lack in the diversity of services that they offer.
- Their customer service is rude and uninformative.
Don’t allow yourself to become a casualty to a scam artist. There are too many remarkable and reputable transport companies out there to take advantage of. Call around, do online research, ask friends, and do whatever you have to do before you hastily hire someone for the job. Finding one that upholds a great reputation and still offers affordable prices is very possible. In fact, many of the reliable auto transport companies will offer specials, discounts and sales on a regular basis.
As you call around gathering quotes and estimates, don’t be scared to ask questions. The customer service representative should sound as though they want your business and therefore, they will be happy to assist you.
