Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
The shipping options we offer around Florida are ideal and custom-made to suit any bike owner. A-1 Auto Transport offers:
- Motorcycle shipping in crates. Crating involves using wooden boxes to offer protection to your bike.
- Shipping the bike on an open truck. Also known as open-air transportation, your bike is tied up with sturdy belts for maximum support during transit.
- The enclosed option involves moving your motorcycle in a covered or enclosed vehicle.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
You cannot go wrong by preparing your motorcycle for shipping. Dealing with the customs department while shipping a dirty or unroadworthy motorcycle is such a struggle. You don’t want to incur unnecessary expenses after overlooking the preparation bit. Some of the hints we give to have your motorcycle ready for shipping include:
- Having your bike insured. Although we offer motor carrier insurance, it is always advisable to have your motorcycle covered for maximum protection.
- Draining the fuel until the tank is quarter full. Also, drain all other fluids to avoid spills while on transit. Flammable fluids pose great danger to the shipping crew and the items being shipped.
- Having the battery charged, and tires well inflated.
- Cleaning the motorcycle to remove dirt and stains. Don’t overlook the tires.
- With a digital camera, take high resolution images at various positions; front, sideways, and back.
- Should there be any noticeable cracks, leaking fluids, or chipped paint, note them down on a notebook.
- Don’t leave your personal items on the bike. Remove them from the saddle bags and other compartments on the bike.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company

- Check permits and other legal documents. Trust only shipping companies that have been authorized to do business by the government.
- Check the equipment. Be keen on the equipment that will be used to handle your bike. They should be of high-quality and nothing short of that.
