 Safe To Ship My Motorcycle

Shipping a motorcycle through auto transport professionals is the absolute safest way to have your bike delivered. A motorcycle is safer being delivered by shipping experts than it is being driven to its destination. Having your bike shipped protects it from road damage and increased mileage. Not to mention, motorcycle shipping services are cost effective and affordable.

A1 Auto Transport has been in the transport industry for nearly 30 years. We specialize in the safe delivery of all kinds of vehicles. Motorcycle shipping is something we are very familiar with. We have delivered motorcycles both nationally and internationally. We have the latest, state-of-the-art transport equipment and technology to get your bike delivered anywhere in the world.

What Is the Safest Transport Method to Use for a Motorcycle?

A lot of people are apprehensive about shipping their bike. However, it is absolutely safe. When the bike’s condition is of the utmost concern, crated shipping methods are typically recommended. Although this service is a little more expensive than an open air delivery, it protects the bike from outside elements such as poor weather and road conditions.

When a motorcycle is shipped through container methods, it is often secured to a wooden pallet then slid into a small shipping crate. Due to the size of the shipping crate, you may be asked to remove the handlebars and any other loose or protruding items. You’ll also be required to prepare the bike accordingly for its delivery.

Motorcycle Preparation

  • Drain the bike of all fluids except the fuel. The fuel tank mustn’t read over ¼ full.
  • Wash the motorcycle and make sure it is free of all dirt and debris.
  • Take photographs of the motorcycle and any visible damage it may suffer from. Also write down all damages.
  • Have the bike undergo maintenance by professional technicians.
  • Disconnect the battery.

★★★★★

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.
