Safe And Reliable Brea Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
At times shipping your motorcycle is better than riding it to your destination. This ensures you and your bike remain safe all through. Reasons that might bring about the need to use a motorcycle transportation service in Brea include:
Inaccessibility of roads. Various factors that render roads impassable include:
- Flooding of highways cannot allow bike owners to pass or they will be washed away.
- Rough terrain is not suitable for exotic and delicate motorcycles.
- Broken roads and bridges cut off accessibility to the other end of the road hence requires methods like air shipping.
Purchase of new bikes. The bikes can only be used after proper registration is completed.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Coupled with efficient methods of shipping, delivery options are used to complement the alternatives. Methods of shipping together with their delivery options include:
- Water moving option. The ideal method of delivery is port to port. So, if you can access any port near you, then water shipping will work well.
- Air moving option. Door to terminal or terminal to terminal are the ideal methods of delivery. Living near the airport, the need for fast delivery, and shipping to abroad countries are the major reasons customers seek air transport services.
- Rail moving option. Even if this shipping method is very economical, it is a bit slower than other methods. Terminal to terminal or door to terminal are the used alternatives for delivery.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Bike preparation should always be your pre-shipping task. When discussing with your shipper they will mention to you some of the tasks you need to do during preparation. Examples of the tasks are:
- Cleaning your two wheels in and out. Ship bikes without the damaging debris.
- Ship the bikes after removing all hanging items. Use well-labeled containers to pack your accessories.
- Transport the motorcycles after checking the pressure in the tires.
- Ring the bike shipper when you are certain that the engine is in pristine condition.
- Move your bikes after draining all fluids.
- Your shipper should come for pick-up when you have the alarm and music systems disabled.
- Call the transport service if the bike is already inspected, all flaws noted down, and images of the bike’s present conditions taken.
- Do not ship a bike without first charging the battery. If crated shipping is the chosen method, pack the battery in a special container.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Positive reviews and reliable testimonials from previous customers is enough proof to show that the services offered are satisfactory.
- The years that the shipper has been operating in Brea. Look for shipper with over 20 years’ experience and counting. Level of experience matches with efficiency of services.
- Shipping fees asked for by your shipper. The pricing should not be very high nor too low. If our budget is tight, ask if the shipper offers discounts for the services.
- Hiring an insured shipper is a good precautionary deed. Your motorcycles will be covered against different risks that might damage the motorcycle while in transit.
