Safe And Reliable New York Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Not only is New York the home of the “Big Apple,” but it has a lot of beautiful landscapes up north. There is so much to explore and it is the perfect state for any motorcyclist. From sharing a maritime border with Rhode Island to forested areas, New York is a great place to have a bike shipped to.
Things to Keep in Mind While Selecting a Motorcycle Shipment Company
When trying to decide on a motorcycle shipment company, there are certain things that you should consider before just settling with anyone.
- Pay attention to ratings and reviews given by past customers.
- Ask the company what shipment methods they offer.
- See if the company offers insurance during shipping.
- Take their rates in mind. However, if a safer method is available just outside of your preferred budget, it might be worth it to bend a little.
Shipping Methods Available in New York
Choose a method of shipment that you feel is safe enough for your bike. There are many options available depending on what company you choose to have shipped your motorcycle.
- Enclosed Transport - Safe and secure way of shipping. The motorcycle is placed inside of an enclosed container and shipped.
- Open Air Transport - The motorcycle is placed on a trailer. This allows for road conditions and weather to possibly cause damage to the bike if the conditions are poor.
- Door to Door - The motorcycle is picked up from a specific location and dropped off at a specific location.
- Terminal to Terminal - This is a cheaper option, but it requires the bike to be picked up from and dropped off at a terminal which may or may not be in close proximity.
- Crated Shipping - This method is the safest. The bike is put on top of a wooden pallet and placed inside of a trailer. It must be drained of all fluids before shipment and the battery must also be disconnected.
