Safe And Reliable Mountain View Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
There are different reasons as to why motorcycle shipping services may be hired. These include:
- When a bike cannot be used due to poor road conditions or adverse weather conditions.
- When the bike owner is relocating and needs their bike to be transported along with their household goods and personal belongings.
- When the bike is inoperable.
- When the bike has been salvaged.
- When the bike has been purchased and after sales-service includes its transportation to the buyer’s address.
- When using the bike to travel will possibly lead to the wear and tear of its parts and the owner would like to avoid this.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
To transport your bike, we may use the following shipping methods:
- Water shipping.
- Air shipping.
- Shipping via rail.
- Shipping via road.
For all motorcycle transportation methods, we may use enclosed shipping, open air shipping or crated shipping. When your bike is to be hauled via road, you can opt to have it shipped on a motorcycle trailer, a flatbed truck or an open truck.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Motorcycle shipping involves many activities. Among them and the most important one is the preparation of your motorcycle for shipping. To prepare your motorcycle for shipping, you will have to do the following:
- Remove the loosely hanging items and any motorcycle accessories.
- Wash the motorcycle to remove the dirt and debris.
- Check the fluid levels.
- Check the battery and the tire pressure.
- Disable the alarm system.
- Inspect your bike and take note of the pre-existing marks and dents, if any. Take photos that clearly show the bike’s condition. This comes in handy in the event that you will have to file a claim in case your bike gets damaged while it is in transit.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
When looking for a motorcycle shipping company, some of the factors that you need to consider so as to hire the best mover include:
- The availability of a motorcycle insurance coverage. Find out if there are any limits on the extent to which compensation will be awarded. In case your bike is highly valuable and the shipping company’s cover is not sufficient, you may have to look for an additional motorcycle insurance cover.
- Consider the communication flow between you and the company as well as the ability to get updates on your delivery.
- The ability of the shipping company to offer you different motorcycle shipping options. A good mover will not limit your options to only a few services that might possibly not meet your needs.
- The authenticity of the company and if they possess the relevant certificates and credentials.
- The ratings and reviews that the company has received should be mainly positive.
