Safe And Reliable Fillmore Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
A-1 Auto Transport was launched after bike owners suffered for many years in the hands of rogue shippers. The shippers were only after money. If a biker couldn’t meet the asking price, they would result to hauling their bikes at the back of typical pickup trucks and moving it without professional preparations. The bikes would get damaged and many accessories went missing. No one was happy with the aftermath until we came into existence.
Nowadays, bikers are all smiles when they are receiving bikes from us after shipping. There are no dents or marks. They now have someone to listen to their needs and worries and assure them that there will be no damage to the motorcycles while in transit.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
You can make a choice of the most convenient method of shipping from the list below:
- Moving by road. Due to a good network of highways and alternative routes many bike owners will want to use this method. It doubles as a convenient method because the shippers can ship the motorcycle to your doorstep.
- Moving by rail. Bike owners who are in regions where trains are heavily depended on for daily commuting will find this option practical.
- Moving by air. Here we have the least congested and the fastest option for shipping motorbikes. The method is also priced higher than other overseas hauling alternatives.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Cleaning the bike eradicates tough stains, grease, and debris.
- Examine the entire motorcycle for any defects. On a sheet of paper, jolt them down.
- Take a high-resolution camera (a digital camera or camera phone) and photograph the bike from all sides.
- Update your insurance cover even if your shipper has an additional insurance cover.
- Travel documents should be within reach. Examples of documents are manuals and receipts.
- All aftermarket accessories should be removed.
- The right amount of pressure in tires is necessary to prevent damages. Excessive shock is absorbed by inflated tires.
- According to international standards, the fuel tank should only be quarter-way filled with gas during shipping.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Headaches will be an issue of the past, if you cease using ‘man-and-van’ companies. Go for shipping services offering a variety of options to pick from. With these, bike owners can select the most convenient alternative without compromising on their budget and safety of the motorbike.
- For a shipper to handle your motorbike, they should be credible. Whatever they portray in their marketing campaigns should be exactly what they put into action. Customers’ preferences should be a top priority.
- Since experience is the best teacher, it is best if you ship with haulage companies that have been in the industry for several years. If the number of years is satisfactory you can then choose to sign on the dotted line.
