Safe And Reliable Perry Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Shipping of bikes is a task that is best handled by experts. This is because there is a lot of activities and processes needed to make the move complete and successful. Therefore, if you are to transport a bike, it is advisable that you hire motorcycle shipping services. Examples of situations in which such services may be hired include when a bike is being salvaged or it has to be delivered to the address of a buyer or that of a relocating owner. A bike may also have to be transported when the weather conditions are not suitable for biking or when bike enthusiasts would like to attend biking events. Movers are capable of providing safe and reliable transport solutions.
The motorcycle shipping methods available
We avail the following motorcycle shipping methods.
- Air shipping: This is a fast means of transportation and the bike is delivered in a cargo plane.
- Water shipping: This option is reliable when shipping bikes overseas and although it is slower than air shipping, it is more affordable.
- Road shipping: The bike is transported on an open truck, a flatbed truck or on a motorcycle trailer which is pulled by another vehicle. Ours drivers are capable of completing the delivery in good time.
- Rail shipping: This offers a reliable means of transportation with minimal delays encountered while the bike is in transit.
The preparation of a bike for shipping is an important step. It ensures that the bike will be in a condition fit for shipping, therefore making it easy for the mover to handle the bike. It also ensures that the safety precautions are taken, minimizing any chances of accidents occurring. Bike preparation includes checking the engine, the fluid levels and the tire pressure. The gas level should be at a maximum of a quarter of the tank capacity. You are also to remove your belongings and all of the accessories attached to the bike. It is also expected that you disable the alarm system and secure the fragile bike parts. The additional preparation tasks to be done if you are shipping the bike in a crate are draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery. The motorcycle should be thoroughly cleaned, assessed and then photographed so that you may have a record of its pre-shipping condition.
