Different methods we will use to ship your motorcycle.
A-1 Auto Transport is a must-hire hauling company thanks to the impeccable strategies in place to uphold its moniker. We boast of the best shipping services in Newport and the world over. When you hire us, you get to enjoy our:
- Crated shipping – Here, the bike is placed in a crate and strapped down using tie-down strips. The crate is then shipped to the destination where it will be collected.
- Open air shipping – This is one of the most common methods because of its affordability. The bikes are loaded on an open truck and secured using tie-down strips.
- Enclosed shipping – In this method, the bike is moved in an enclosed trailer to ensure that it is safe from weather elements.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Different companies require clients to perform different tasks during preparation of their bikes for shipping. However, here are the most common ones.
- Clean the bike and inspect it for any visible damages. Take clear photos of the bike from all angles; this will be a visual record of the pre-shipment condition of the bike which will be needed when you want to file claims with the company in case of damages or loss.
- Prepare the travel documents i.e. the permit to transport and the title of ownership, before you invite the mover. This will save time and hasten the shipping process.
- Any loose parts or accessories such as helmets and personal belongings should be removed and packed separately in well-labeled boxes for easy identification. This is because they could fall off and either get damaged or lost while on the move.
- Drain all fluids from the motorcycle before packing. Some of them are highly flammable and could cause fire accidents. Some could also corrode the bike’s surfaces when spilled.
- Ensure that the gas level in the fuel tank does not exceed ¼ of the tank capacity.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Quality of service: A good company should be able to offer you satisfactory service through trained staff and high quality equipment.
- Certification: They need to be certified by the relevant international regulating bodies like DOC and MC. Again, the company should have licenses from the countries under which it operates.
- Presence of the company: A company of choice should have offices and agents in the main towns and cities.
