Safe And Reliable Louisville Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Bike owners call motorcycle transportation companies when in need of shipping services. They may have preferred riding on the two wheels but due to unavoidable circumstances they have to use a hauler in Louisville. The unescapable situations are:
- When your motorcycles have faulty engines and other mechanical problems.
- When you are relocating in Louisville with your entire property but you choose to use another method of transport.
- When bike event organizers stipulate that all participants should ship motorbikes to the venue.
- When selling a motorbike to a buyer dwelling in an overseas country. Here, international shipping methods will be used.
- Bad weather can inhibit you from riding a bike, hence, compelling you to seek services from a motorcycle hauling company.

When picking your preferred method, you will have additional delivery methods to pick from like door to door service, port to port service, or terminal to terminal service.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Give the motorbike a thorough wash. Pressurized water eliminates all the debris and dirt clogged in the joints.
- Accessories that are projecting from the bike should be unbolted and packed safely for shipping.
- Tire pressure should be enough and as per international standards. Use a PSI gauge to confirm the amount of air.
- The engine should be functional. Present defects should be repaired by an expert.
- Security systems should be switched off during shipping. When left switched on, they can cause a scare if triggered while on the move.
- Reading on the gas tank should be at a ¼. Anything more than that is hazardous.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Search for vital information about motorcycle shipping companies before hiring. Aspects that every motorbike owner should know before hiring shipping services include:
- The experience of the transportation solution provider. Find out how many years they have been in the field. The more the years the greater the skills in motorcycle handling. For a shipper to be termed as experienced, must have shippe more than a million motorcycles in ten years.
- The affordability of the services offered. Don’t get conned by companies who don’t care for their clients. Find out what the current market rates are before making a decision. Ignore quotes from companies that charge above the market rates. Also, extremely low prices never equate to luck. These are other fraudsters that are out to trap you. Be careful!
- The presence of the shipper is important to ascertain if the shipper is truly responsible. Ask if every city they operate in has an office and agents in all countries they serve. Find out if the addresses given match the precise location of physical offices.
