Safe And Reliable Punta Gorda Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Motorcycles may have to be transported for various reasons. There may be a biking event such as the Sturgis Bike week and those who would like to take part in it will need to have their bikes shipped to the location. Also, when businesses or a bike owner is relocating, they will need to hire motorcycle shipping services so as to ship their bikes to the new address. The sale of a bike may be done at a physical store on online sites such as eBay and the delivery of the bike will have to be done so as to complete the sale. Also, when there are adverse weather conditions, it becomes too risky to use a bike and therefore, it would be better to have it transported by a mover.
Our motorcycle shipping methods
To transport your bike, we can use any of the following methods:
- Shipping via road, in which the bike may be transported on an open truck, a flatbed truck or on a motorcycle trailer, which is then pulled by another vehicle.
- Shipping via air, whereby the bike is shipped in a cargo plane.
- Shipping via rail, in which we use railway services to transport your bike in a cargo train.
- Shipping via water, whereby your bike is transported in a cargo ship.
You can opt to have your bike delivered using the door-to-door service or the terminal-to-terminal service.
Pre-shipping bike preparation
Before you ship your bike, you will be expected to complete the preparation activities. The following are some of the ways in which you can get your bike ready for shipping:
- Remove the motorcycle accessories.
- Clean the bike and get rid of all dirt and any debris that may be on it.
- Check the engine.
- Disable the alarm system.
- Ensure that the level of the gas is at a maximum of a quarter of the tank.
- Check if the fluids are at the recommended levels.
- Drain the fluids and disconnect the battery (this is if you will be shipping using the crated option).
- Inspect the bike and take good photos of it from different angles.
You can check with the motorcycle mover if they have any specific conditions to be met before the bike is handed over to them.
Searching for a motorcycle mover
The search for a mover is an important step because the quality of services that you will get will be determined by the mover that you will hire. The following are some of the factors to put into consideration when hiring a mover:
- The experience that the company has in shipping bikes, especially to Punta Gorda.
- The availability of a valid motorcycle insurance cover.
- The availability of a variety of motorcycle transport options.
- The reputation of the company.
- The ability of the mover to provide tailored motorcycle shipping solutions.
