Safe And Reliable El Paso de Robles Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
The motorcycle shipping industry has hit the transportation and carrier industry by wave. As a result, motorcycle owners can now send off and receive bikes without worrying about weather, theft, or damage. The main reasons that led to the birth of the industry are the need to:
- Ship motorbikes when there is harsh weather.
- Ship scramblers that are inoperable perhaps due to mechanical defects.
- Transport salvaged motorbikes for disposal, recycling, or sale.
- Deliver many bikes at a go to dealers and buyers.
- Fill the gap in global demand of international shipping. Buyers and sellers can do business while in different countries.
- Avoid clashing with the authority that bans any kind of bike use in some regions.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Shipping via air. Enjoy this sonic-speed type of shipping to overseas destinations. Due to the speedy deliveries, owners will have to part with huge chunks of money. All bikes are safe throughout the process.
- Shipping via water. Use of ships and other water vessels to move bikes has been used for quite some time now. We will pack your bikes using the Roll-on/ Roll-off method.
- Shipping on road. Trucks are the major modes of transport with this method of shipping. You could pick either enclosed trucks if you are moving under harsh conditions or the cheaper open trucks if you are looking to move bikes to shorter distances.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Wash the machine, call your mechanic to fix mechanical defects if any, and inflate the rear and front tires.
- Invest in a good camera phone or professional camera. Using the devices, take steady shots of the bike before and after shipping. Move around the bike as your take the images. Focus your lens on marks too. You will need the images in case you find it necessary to make claims.
- Spare time and make a list of all visible flaws, leaky fluids, or flaked paint. The driver should not leave without a copy.
- Never ship your motorcycles with your personal accessories on them. Check your saddle bags and other storage units and remove the accessories if any.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Include previous users of shipping services in your homework. Ensure they are not only marketing the shipper. They will give you the pros and cons of the services they used. If their pros are more than cons, you can consider hiring them.
- You want to deal with shippers who hire the crème-de-la-crème workers. Ask the bike handlers about their experience and skill sets. This should give you a vivid picture regarding their abilities in shipping.
- Look for a haulage company whose services are affordable. Always go with shipping options that can fit your budget. Remember to inquire if personalized services are offered. Some transportation solution providers allow for negotiations; be sure to ask about that too.
