Safe And Reliable Columbia Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

The different situations in which shipping a bike is necessary include when transporting a bike to:

  • A biking event.
  • The destination to which a bike owner is traveling.
  • The address to which the owner is relocating.
  • The address of a purchaser.
  • The mechanic, when a bike ought to be repaired.

The best way to transport a bike is by hiring motorcycle shipping services from a reliable mover. This will give you the assurance that your bike will be handled with care.

Our motorcycle shipping methods

The methods of motorcycle transportation are:

  • Road shipping, which is a common in-land method of shipping. Flatbed trucks, open trucks and motorcycle trailers are used in the delivery of bikes.
  • Air shipping, which is the most expensive and the fastest method of shipping. Cargo planes are used in transporting the bikes.
  • Water shipping, which is a more economical option for overseas shipping but has a longer delivery timeframe. We ferry the bikes on cargo ships to the receiving port selected.
  • Rail shipping, which is a more convenient alternative to road shipping since it has minimal delays in delivery. Cargo trains are used in making the deliveries.

The bike may be delivered using the door-to-door service or terminal-to-terminal service.

Pre-shipping preparation: getting your bike ready for shipping

Before you ship a bike, you ought to prepare it well. This can be done by taking the bike to a mechanic to have any faulty parts fixed, disabling the alarm system and ensuring that the level of the gas is at a maximum of a quarter of the tank capacity. If the bike will be in running condition, you ought to check the tire pressure, the level of the fluids and the engine. If you are to ship the bike in a crate, you will be expected to drain the fluids and disconnect the battery. You should also clean the bike thoroughly and ensure it has no dirt or debris on it. Additionally, any deposits on the tires should be removed. To document the pre-shipping condition of the bike, you should inspect it, make a report on the condition and also take good photos of the bike from different angles.
