Safe And Reliable Moody Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to choosing the best motorcycle mover to ship your bikes locally or internationally. Many at times you land on one who seems perfect only to realize when it is too late, that it was just another marketing gimmick. This is the reason why we tell all our customers to ‘trust but verify’ every other guy who purports to provide such services. It is an exercise that takes a lot of your money and time, and sometimes your peace of mind. You would not let any other mover mess you up. A-1 Auto transport has stamped its authority in the provision of the most reliable motorcycle shipping services in the city and abroad.
Different methods we will use to ship your motorcycle.
Open carrier services: This is a mode of transportation that has been around for centuries long before the introduction of the other ones. It is a simple way of moving motorcycles over short distances. Open trucks and trailers are used to transport the bikes and do the deliveries. It is also popular due to its affordability as compared to all others.
Enclosed carrier services: Closed trucks and containers are used to move the motorcycles. It is the most suitable when moving bikes over long distances and when shipping overseas. It is more expensive than the open-air method due to its limited capacity and the safety with which the bike is moved.
Crated services: This is a preference for those moving a single bike and especially the ones that are expensive and delicate. The crates are made of wood leaving enough room around the perimeter and therefore can accommodate any size or type of bike.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Clean the bike and ensure there are no oily or watery patches around the joints. This will ensure that the functionality of the bike is not affected by rust or corrosion.
Remove the battery and the alarm system. These are sensitive and could be damaged while on the move. These sell like hot cake in the black market and therefore can be stolen if not well protected.
Ensure that all travel documents are ready before you call in the mover so that you save time on preparation.
Inflate all tires fully. They are part of the suspension and therefore help in absorbing the shock during transportation.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
The mover should be ready to provide comprehensive insurance for the motorcycles while in transit. This will ensure that in case a calamity befalls, you are compensated.
The moving company should be a member of the association of movers in America and should have licenses to operate in other countries where they have pitched a tent.
Go through the customer reviews on the company’s website and find out how they have treated others before.
Find out the team who will be handling your move. Ensure they are well-trained so that it will be easy for them to handle your shipment and for you to deal with them.
