Safe And Reliable Martinez Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Many motorcycle owners find it prudent to use a motorcycle shipping service to transport their bikes rather than having someone ride it to the destination. Perhaps you want the bike delivered to a buyer or have it serviced by an expert. You may need a hauler if:
- You are sick to an extent that you are so weak to ride a bike.
- You have volumes of work at the office and can’t find time to ride the bike to the new owner by yourself.
- You are not aware of the routes to the destination. No need to risk riding to places you are not familiar with.
A-1 Auto Transport is devoted to people like you. We take away the worries that come with letting another party handle your pricey scrambler. Ship with us and have peace of mind while at work or at home.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We will not just push your motorcycle in the truck and drive off. Also, we do not use just any material like ropes, or jerks to load your bike into the truck. We have explained our premium shipping methods below.
- Air shipping. Our fastest and most expensive method of hauling your bike, but we negotiate for the best air freight charges. You can ship with a combination of other delivery options like crating or Roll on/ Roll off.
- Water shipping. Among our slowest and cheapest methods of hauling, you can combine the method with delivery options like door-to-door service or terminal-to-terminal delivery.
- Road shipping. If you are shipping the bike from another state, then this is the most popular method. We have complementing options like the open trailer, or closed trailer.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
We always ask our clients to prepare their bikes for shipping before we pick and transport them to the destination. This is done for the sake of the safety of the bikes as well as the shipping crew.
- First off, ensure the bike is in an operable condition. You may want to seek service of an expert for a maintenance
- The bike should be insured. We have a carrier insurance service, but we want to protect your bike using all probable efforts.
- We don’t ship bikes with grime all over. It is not only a horrible sight but also cleaning will save our drivers the headache of dealing with the stern custom officers.
- Write down the details about the visible marks.
- Take clear photos of the bike from all angles. Blurred images will be of little help in case you want to make damage claims. Look for a camera that produces sharp images that clearly show the bike’s pre-shipment condition.
- Lower the fuel level up to around a ¼ of the gas tank and completely drain the other fluids.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Look for a shipper offering a myriad of transportation options. In addition to the shipping methods, check whether they offer extra delivery options and if their services are tailored to your needs.
Get a shipper that has a comprehensive insurance policy. You might have insured your bike beforehand, but that wouldn’t count if the transportation trucks get in an accident while on the move.
Pick motorcycle shipping services that possess valid certificates and licenses. If not sure, check with relevant authorities like Federal Highway Administration or the United States Department of Transportation.
