Safe And Reliable Mansfield Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
There are various circumstances that may bring about the need to transport motorcycles. When such situations arise, the best way to transport bikes is by hiring motorcycle shipping services. You will need to hire such services when:
- Attending a bike event and timely delivery of the bike to the location is required.
- Relocating and you are transporting your belongings, the bike included.
- The bike is not operational and has to be fixed by a mechanic.
- Salvaging a bike.
- A bike has been purchased and delivery to the buyer's address is required so as to complete the sale.
Our motorcycle shipping methods
The methods that we may use when shipping bikes include:
- Air transport: A cargo plane is used to transport the bike to the destination within the shortest time possible.
- Water transport: A cargo ship ferries the bike from port to port.
- Road transport: Our drivers reliably deliver the bike to your address and they transport it on a motorcycle trailer, an open truck or on a flatbed truck.
- Rail transport: The bike is transported in a cargo train. You may opt to pick the bike from the railway terminus or have us deliver it to your address.
Motorcycle preparation activities
The activities that are included in the preparation of a motorcycle for shipping include:
- Assessing the condition of the bike and taking it to professionals who can fix any of the existing defects.
- Removing the motorcycle accessories.
- Checking the engine.
- Washing the bike.
- Disabling the alarm system.
- Checking the fluid levels.
- Confirming that the gas is at a maximum level of a quarter of the total tank capacity.

Note: Additional preparation of the bike is required when shipping it using the crated option. You will have to disconnect the battery and drain the fluids. You also have to check with the moving company as to whether they have specific motorcycle preparation requirements. Some expect detachable parts such as the handlebars to be removed.
