Situated in the heart of California, Orinda is among the friendliest cities in the US. According to Forbes, the fine town can be a good place to raise a family. You might be thinking of how to relocate to this amazing place. You happen to be a bikers’ family – you rely heavily on motorcycles as the major transport means.
You have no better option than looking for an ideal motorbike transport company in Orinda. There are a couple of such companies, but none offer better services than A-1 Auto Transport. We have been leading in the shipping business for many years, not forgetting the numerous awards received owing to a dedicated and hardworking team.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Below are samples of the methods we can use to ship your bike. We will also guide you through all methods and allow you make an informed decision.
- Enclosed motorcycle transport: Closed trailers and high-end tools have been invested in to transport your motorbikes and deliver in a perfect condition.
- Water transport: Shipping on water is slower and a bit cheaper compared to other international shipping methods.
- Crated/ palleted transport: You can build a wooden box or request our shipper to do so for you. Many owners of exotic bikes prefer this method.
- Rail transport: Shipping by train is quite a low-priced and slower means of road transport.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Before you pack the bike, have it cleaned and dried of all moisture. Presence of water can react with metal parts leading to rusting.
Take your ownership documents from your safe. We will need them during pick-up.
Ease the shipping process by insuring the bike. We offer insurance services, but it does more good than harm having two insurance covers. It’s more of double protection for your precious cargo.
Remove personal items and loosely hanging accessories from the bike. If your personal effects get lost or damaged on the way, we or our insurer cannot compensate for them. We exclusively ship bikes and not personal items.
You probably have heard of cases of explosions during transit as a result of fuel fumes. Leave just a little fuel in the tank. A ¼ of the tank capacity is enough to take you to a gas station after pick-up. Completely drain all other fluids.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Beware of shipper with a tendency of exploiting clients. Your chosen shipper should not have hidden charges, neither should they charge exorbitantly. Make sure when signing the binding form that the initial price will cater for every service until delivery.
Licenses are what validate every business; shipping services are no exemptions. Ensure the shipper has all the required papers to prove that they are permitted to carry out the business. The US Department of Transport is an ideal place to check.
Testimonials and reviews from past customers are a perfect benchmark to ascertain that the shipper offers consistently great services. Check the BBB website to see their rating.
Look for a shipper who can also ship bikes to and from countries abroad or in the overseas. They should also have an array of shipping methods to handle all types of shipping needs.
