Safe And Reliable Centralia Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
There are different reasons as to why a motorcycle may have to be shipped. These include when taking it to the mechanic, to the address to which the owner is relocating or to the address of a buyer. Adverse weather conditions also make it highly necessary to hire motorcycle shipping services. Participants of a biking event will also require a mover to transport their bikes to the location at which a biking event is scheduled to take place.
The different motorcycle shipping methods
The methods of motorcycle shipping that we use when transporting a bike include: air transport, water transport, road transport and rail transport. These shipping options are all reliable and you can choose the one that suits your budget and preferences. Air transport is a fast shipping option and is the most expensive one.
Road transport is an in-land method of shipping which is commonly used in making deliveries to various addresses. Water transport is a reliable means of shipping bikes overseas which is more economical but has a longer delivery timeframe. Rail transport is an alternative to shipping via road and it has the advantage of not being characterized by delays in delivery.
Preparation of a motorcycle for shipping
To ensure that the bike will be handled easily by the mover and to avoid the chances of accidents occurring, you ought to prepare your motorcycle well. This can be done by checking the engine, the level of the fluids and the tire pressure. Ensuring that the gas is at a maximum level of a quarter of the tank capacity, disabling the alarm system and removing your motorcycle accessories will ease the handling of the bike by the mover. Extra preparation will be required if you are to ship the bike in a crate. This includes draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery. Inspecting the bike is necessary as you have to ensure that it is in good condition and make a report, mentioning the marks and dents that it may have. Cleaning the bike and ensuring that it has no dirt or debris on it a body or deposits in the tires is part of the preparation of the bike. Taking photos of the bike is highly recommended.
