Safe And Reliable Campbell Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Without a doubt, motorbike shipping is not just any other auto moving exercise. This sensitive and critical business requires an investment in the right equipment that will carefully handle the bikes. That is why when you go looking for a motorcycle mover, you must pay attention to the staff and the moving equipment. A-1 Auto transport services is a motorcycle mover with the right infrastructure to deliver your motorcycles promptly and in pristine condition.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open-air truck moving. With help of our non-enclosed vehicles, we will move your motorbikes from any city to Campbell. We cannot always use this hauling option to move bikes to overseas countries or on long distances. There is a higher risk of weather damage, theft, and vandalism.
- Enclosed truck moving. Our fleet of air-ride enclosed trucks is the ideal choice to ship bikes safely. Temperature control systems are fitted to prevent any form of cosmetic and paint damage.
- Crated moving. Pallets built from high quality wood are used to move bikes especially customs, collectors, and brand-new bikes. You can also pack your bike in a crate if you are looking to transport it along with other items.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Have the motorcycle papers on standby to hasten the process when the shipper comes for the bike.
- Your regular mechanic can help with maintenance. They should find and fix any mechanical defects in the engine.
- Examine both front and rear tires. They should be puncture-free. Make sure before the hauling, they have enough pressure.
- Check for damage on the motorcycle. Write down the findings for future reference.
- Invest in a good camera, which you will use to take clear images to show the bike’s pre-shipment condition. You can also use your phone for this.
- Loose parts should be secured and fuel in the tank lowered to a quarter of the full capacity.
- Disconnect the alarm and GPS systems.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Insurance coverage is the first priority item to look for in a motorcycle shipping company. Never attempt to get into deals with businesses that are not covered with a comprehensive policy. If possible, make sure to know what type of risks are covered by the policy.
- Look also at the level of experience held by the shippers. The shippers should at least have run their business for 20 years. Anything below that implies that the shippers are not competent enough. Entrusting your motorbikes with them is a huge risk. The more the experience the better the service provision.
- When seeking good transport solutions, try to vet companies that offer a range of shipping options and methods. With these, it is easier to find a method that suits your budget and preferences.
- The shipper you choose to move your motorbikes should be licensed and bonded by the US Department of Transport. Check whether they have the permit to ship in Campbell and international destinations.
Why you should use A-1 Auto Transport for your motorcycle shipping needs
- We own a fleet of specialty vehicles. Our shipping autos range from vans, flatbeds, and trucks. Covered service is facilitated by fully-enclosed air-ride trailers to shield the paint work from chipping. Non-enclosed trailers are only released during fine weather.
- Our motorbike hauling services are affordable and friendly to every bike owner. Our shipping estimates not subject to hidden fees, lift gate charges or fuel surcharges like what some shippers charge. If you prefer using door to door delivery service, there are no additional residential bills incurred to you.
- You are aware of your motorcycles’ whereabouts all the time via our real-time tracking system. A-1 Auto Transport has invested in a high-end satellite that help users find the location of their machines. There are not many haulers out there that offer such services, but, since we are bikers, we know the importance of tracking.
- We are a Better Business Bureau accredited hauling service. The A rating on BBB was achieved because of team work.
