Safe And Reliable Dixon Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
From Dixon to the larger California, and even overseas, A-1 Auto Transport is the most used shipping company. This has come after numerous struggles and falls. Our first shipping service was launched about 30 years ago. Over the years our shippers have been keen to learn the ropes and gain in-depth skills. We never disappointed during our early days even though we were not much established. As a result, many clients trusted us and still hire us for their shipping needs. Good organization, zeal, and sacrifice have been characteristics that have seen us create a globally recognized brand.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open truck haulage. We have a fleet of open-air autos that come fitted with durable straps to hold the motorcycles in place while on the move. Our open vehicles have a huge capacity to accommodate even over 300 motorcycles at once, while each is secured. We use the method mostly for interstate moving.
- Enclosed truck haulage. We own several closed trucks and containers. They are all fitted with devices to keep safe the bikes being moved. The devices include soft ties, cooling systems, and security gadgets. Vandalism from weather and road elements, as well as theft is kept at bay. Covered trailers can be used for international and long-distance shipping.
- Crated bike haulage. Here, we use crates built with soft wood. They are designed to leave a perimeter of protection around your two wheels. So far, this is the safest bike hauling option.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Wash the exterior parts of the motorbikes and get rid of grime that might have clogged the joints. By doing this, the dust particles and moisture trapped in there is eliminated.
- Draining of fluids from the motorcycle reduces its weight. As a result, shipping fees are also reduced.
- Empty the fuel reservoir and confirm that the rear and front tires contain enough air. A full tank poses danger to the drivers and the bikes as fuel is inflammable. Any slight friction may cause an explosion.
- Remove the battery and the security gadgets from the bike. They should be cautiously placed in well-labeled chests and shipped separately. Also, the chests should be padded to offer maximum shield.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Look for a shipper that is willing to customize their services to match your preferences and budget.
- Deal with a hauler that handles motorcycles using standard equipment. The equipment should be used exclusively for motorcycle shipping.
- Enter into business with a shipper who has a comprehensive insurance policy. This type of policy covers for many types of risks like fire and theft.
