Safe And Reliable Plymouth Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
The city of Plymouth comprises several tourist attractions that render it a perfect stop for holiday goers. After a long ride on your bike around the town, you can go to any of the spas here and enjoy a massage and later take a walk in the serene surroundings. During the day, you can ride as a family to the parks like Centennial Park and River Park Square. If you have kids they have a lot to catch their attention in the parks.
We can help ship all your family members’ bikes to the holiday destination and back home. We do ship to cities in Indiana and all other states of America. Our solutions are offered at rates you can afford and the cargo delivery is done in a timely manner. Our experience with handling motorcycles is over 30 years; we have the adequate know-how to successfully move bikes to the needed address.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open truck shipping: We use open trailers for fast and cost-efficient bike deliveries. We always tell our customers that this method is best used for interstate moving. If they need their bikes shipped very far, then they want to use a more secure shipping method like the covered trucks. All in all, non-enclosed truck shipping will serve you best at very low costs.
- Enclosed trailer shipping: Covered trailers are the best if you do not want to keep worrying about the safety of the bikes. This is because your bike is concealed from the public eye. Potential carjackers and thieves will not even know what is in an enclosed truck. So, your motorbike is very secure. Also, elements such as road debris and bad weather are kept at bay.
- Crated motorcycle shipping: We encounter sensitive clients that do not like their bikes touched during shipping. We have a solution for them. We will pack their rides in wooden crates and ship them to the requested locations. Also, this shipping method is a good option to move salvaged and broken-down motorcycles.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
- Clean all parts on your motorcycle. This will bring many benefits like making it easier to check for damages and clearing at the customs.
- Motorcycle tires absorb all shock from truck movements during shipping, so ensure that they are in good condition. Ensure the threading is intact, there are no slow punctures, and that they are appropriately inflated.
- You want to drain the fluids in the bike as many of them are inflammable and others are corrosive. These fluids can destroy your bike if they spill or leak during shipping.
- After inspection, it is recommended that you note down all the damages that you can see on your bike. Double the evidence with crisp images of the bike. If the bike is damaged, you will have enough evidence to present to the insurer for compensation.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- Make sure that your shipping partner has an official website. On their platform, they should detail all their information and contacts.
- Confirm that the motorcycle shipping company that you will use has American and international licenses. The shipper must also be registered under the Department of Transport. They should have a DOT number written on their shipping vehicles, website, or offices.
- Be careful when receiving quotes. Do not accept extremely low quotations. With low shipping estimations, you are likely to receive very poor services. Check with the authorities to ascertain the market price.
- Perfect shippers are bike owners themselves. This is because they will handle your bike with care just like their own. The shippers must be professional and should have undergone training in serving customers and handling motorcycles.
- Find a shipping company that offers a myriad of shipping services and can guide you to pick one that suits your shipment best depending on your requirements.
