Safe And Reliable Harlingen Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
A Motorcycle must be treated as a special item when handling it and especially when it has to be moved. That is why at A-1 Auto transport services, we have invested in the necessary infrastructure to ensure that whenever you need to move yours, whether within town, in the cities and states around the US or abroad, you have it delivered in excellent condition. We have a special team of members of staff that have been trained to handle your bike. Therefore when moving with us, you deal with professionals. Doesn’t this make you comfortable? Again, we are very reasonable in our fees; whatever budget you have, we will work with it to ensure that your bikes are delivered in the most efficient way.
Different methods we will use to ship your motorcycle.
- Crated shipping – Here, the bike is placed in a crate and strapped down using tie-down strips. The crate is then shipped to the destination where it will be collected.
- Open air shipping – This is one of the most common methods because of its affordability. The bikes are loaded on an open truck and secured using tie-down strips.
- Enclosed shipping – In this method, the bike is moved in an enclosed trailer to ensure that it is safe from weather elements.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Clean the bike and inspect it for any visible damages. Take clear photos of the bike from all angles; this will be a visual record of the pre-shipment condition of the bike which will be needed when you want to file claims with the company in case of damages or loss.
Prepare the travel documents i.e. the permit to transport and the title of ownership, before you invite the mover. This will save time and hasten the shipping process.
Any loose parts or accessories such as helmets and personal belongings should be removed and packed separately in well-labeled boxes for easy identification. This is because they could fall off and either get damaged or lost while on the move.
Drain all fluids from the motorcycle before packing. Some of them are highly flammable and could cause fire accidents. Some could also corrode the bike’s surfaces when spilled.
Ensure that the gas level in the fuel tank does not exceed ¼ of the tank capacity.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
The motorcycle shipper should be registered locally and internationally with the relevant authorities.
The motorcycle shipping company should be affordable. Get as many quotes as possible and compare the prices.
The mover should have sufficient modern hauling and transportation equipment, which will ensure efficiency and safety in transporting your bikes.
The company should be able to provide comprehensive coverage for all your motorcycles while in transit. This will ensure that in case they are damaged or lost, you will be compensated.
The motorcycle mover should have an excellent record of performance. Go through the customer reactions on their website and get to see others’ experience.
