Required Tasks to Complete Before Transportation

  • Wash all the dirt off of the motorcycle
  • Loose objects can damage the bike during transportation so be sure to remove them
  • Turn off the security alarm
  • Check tire pressure, fluids and battery
  • Be sure that the gas level is filled no higher than ¼ tank before transportation
  • Document and list any imperfections to the motorcycle before transportation

Crated transportation sometimes requires the customer to remover mirrors, handlebars and drain the fluids depending on the motorcycle. By completing the short list of tasks, the motorcycle has the best chance at making it to its destination without incident.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
