Safe And Reliable Montana Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Montana, the big state full of mountainous areas and flat terrains as far as the eye can see. The state, known as “Big Sky Country” is perfect for motorcyclists. So, if planning a trip there or going to reside, make sure to have that bike shipped.
Shipping a motorcycle across the country isn't as expensive or difficult as you might assume. Many transporting companies offer motorcycle shipment at low rates. The key is to find one that you feel you can trust to ship the motorcycle. By paying attention to reviews and ratings that past customers give, one can find a suitable shipping company based in Montana.
Motorcycle shipment methods vary depending on the company you choose to go through. The methods available to you are listed below. They will also vary in price, so make sure that you choose one that you feel safe with and one that is within your means.
- Enclosed Shipping
- Crated Shipping
- Open Air Shipping
- Door to Door Shipping
- Terminal to Terminal Shipping
All of the methods above have standard requirements that must be met prior to shipping. There is one exception. Crated shipping will require that the bike is released of all fluids and that the battery is disconnected for shipment.
Standard Shipping Requirements for Motorcycles
There are several standard requirements that must be addressed before motorcycle shipment can occur. These include:
- The bike must be clean of all dirt and debris.
- Shipping methods other than crated shipping require no more than a ¼ tank of gas. The fluids should be checked, and so should the tire pressure and battery.
- Disable the bike's alarm.
- Inspect the vehicle and take note of any damage done to the motorcycle prior to its shipment. Taking pictures will also help.
- Make sure that all loose items are removed from the motorcycle.
