Safe And Reliable Pacific Grove Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Motorcycles are best shipped by movers because they provide reliable motorcycle shipping services. They are also more familiar with the rules and regulations that govern shipping of motorcycles to different locations. The following are some of the situations which require a bike to be transported by a mover:
- When a bike owner is relocating and needs their bike to be transported to the new address.
- When a motorcycle event is scheduled to happen and the participants are to transport their bikes to the location in good time and in perfect condition.
- When a bike cannot be used over distances that may lead to an increased mileage or the possible wear and tear of its parts.
- When a motorcycle needs to be transported and handled well so that its condition remains perfect, especially if it is a new bike or a classic one.
Motorcycle shipping options we have
Since the situations that bring about the need to transport bikes are different, we provide different motorcycle transportation solutions. We can ship your motorcycle using any of the following options:
- Road transport, whereby your motorcycle is transported on a motorcycle trailer, an open truck or a flatbed truck.
- Water transport, whereby we use cargo ships to transport your bike.
- Air transport, whereby your bike is shipped to the destination within the shortest time possible in a cargo plane.
- Rail transport, in which we use cargo trains to take your bike to the terminus at the location you would like your bike to be shipped to.
Bike preparation activities
To prepare your bike for shipping, you will need to do the following activities:
- Cleaning the bike so as to remove the dirt and debris.
- Checking the engine.
- Removing your motorcycle accessories.
- Disabling the alarm system.
- Checking the tire pressure.
- Checking the level of the fluids.
- Confirming that the level of the gas is at a maximum of a quarter of the capacity of the tank.
Note: It is good to check with your mover if there are any specific requirements they have before a bike is handed over to them for shipping. Also, when you are using the crated shipping option, you may be expected to drain the fluids and disconnect the battery.
Things to consider for when searching for a mover
The main things to be on the lookout for when searching for a mover are:
- The ability of the mover to provide you with tailored services.
- The availability of a motorcycle insurance cover.
