Safe And Reliable Covington Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Motorcycle shipping is an industry comprising of different phenomena. The needs of one bike owner are not automatically the needs of another. We boast of having the abilities to offer transport solutions for all types of needs. Some of the shipping needs we provide solutions for include:
- The US Department of Transport does not allow new bikes on the highways before they are registered. We deliver motorcycles to buyers after the acquisition.
- Moving motorcycles on behalf of owners when they are relocating to or from Covington.
- Shipping motorcycles because the weather conditions are severe and riding in such circumstances is risky.
- Transportation of motorcycles over long distances. The owners decide to ship the bikes so as to reduce the rate of tear and wear.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Our methods are simple and extra safe. Read on about what each entails.
- Rail method. Your bikes will be shipped using trains. The asking price is less than that of road shipping.
- Water method. We will load the motorcycles in a water vessel and transport them to overseas countries. Our cargo ships have enough room to carry tens of thousands of bikes at a go.
- Air method. If you are looking for the fastest way of shipping motorcycles, then air shipping is the ideal method.
- Road method. Shipping via road is the oldest and most used shipping method.
- Crated method. If you own a classic bike, then crated shipping will be an excellent choice
- Open-air method. If the weather is fine, ship your bike using the open truck method and see how folks will crane their necks to have a view of the bike.
- Enclosed shipping method is suitable for motorcycle owners or dealers who want the bikes shipped in the most secure manner.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Follow the steps offered below when getting your bike ready for shipping. The steps are meant to accelerate the shipping process and uphold safety standards.
- Confirm that the tire pressure is enough. You are required to use a PSI gauge when measuring the pressure.
- Check if the engine is in an excellent working condition before shipping.
- Do the maintenance checks ahead of transportation.
- Have all aftermarket bike parts removed and transported in separate and well-labeled containers.
- Ensure that the fluids are not at dangerous levels. If possible, drain them altogether.
- Drain the gas to avoid fire accidents. You can leave fuel in the reserve tank as the levels in here are not dangerous.
- Remove the headlamps and fold in the mirrors.
- If you will be using the crated shipping option, charge the battery and disconnect it from the motorcycle.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The number of years the shipper has been in the business. The longer the shipper has shipped motorcycles in Cedartown, the better their skills are in handling bikes and attending to clients. It is recommended that you find a shipper with shipping experience of over two decades.
- A great hauling service ensures that the entire shipping process is effective through thorough research. The shipping industry is so dynamic as policies from the authorities, motorcycle models, and prices keep on changing. The shipper should always be informed of the current trends for optimum efficiency.
- Great shippers will engage with their customers through seamless and reliable communication platforms/ methods. To keep you clear-headed, make sure the driver keeps updating you of the shipping progress. They should also give you their contact information for you to reach out to them if need be.
