Safe And Reliable Rochelle Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
A-1 Auto Transport Inc. is devoted to rendering your motorcycle shipment stress-free. Regardless of the distance or model of your bike, our shippers have adequate experience to complete the job securely. We will handle that 1980 Royal Enfield or your newest 2018 Ducati Scrambler you want to be moved to Rochelle in the safest way possible.
We entered the shipping industry after watching how bike owners were looked down upon by car shippers. Some scramblers cost twice or even thrice as much as some four-wheeled vehicles. Another issue is that selecting an Illinois bike shipper you can trust is not easy. The majority find it nerve-wracking and cumbersome. Good news is you can place the task into our able hands and watch us perform our magic. We will do everything to make sure your bike is shipped to where it is needed in good time and undamaged.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Enclosed truck shipping.
- Open-air shipping.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Before getting your hands dirty, it is wise to know what steps to take for proper motorcycle preparation. These preparation steps will make your shipment hassle-free, and they include:
- Cleaning your motorcycle. Remove all kinds of dirt for an easy inspection.
- Motorcycle fluids can be either corrosive or inflammable. Fire explosions can occur if they spill over. They also can cause damages to bikes if the corrosive fluids spill on the bikes.
- Fuel is another highly inflammable substance, which you should drain or lower to around a quarter of the gas tank.
- Take several pictures before loading the motorcycle onto the shipper’s truck and after offloading it.
- Remember to do the maintenance checks on your bike to make sure it is roadworthy. If there are special operations on the bike be sure to record them and notify the shipper.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Selecting a motorcycle transport firm should not be difficult. To commence the search for a trustworthy shipping company, write a list of your expectations from a potential shipper. These can include the in-transit time, insurance coverage and tracking services. Afterward, read through the list and use it as a guiding map to find the suitable shipper for you.
The first step is asking for shipping quotations from different companies. Two or more transport companies may seem to offer similar services; the disparity in costs can be of help when making decisions. Check if your motorcycle shipper has an online cost estimator or they offer shipping quotation via phone call.
The next step is to ask about the pickup and drop off points of your shipper. If your shipper offers their services in all cities, they should have offices where you can drop off your bike for shipping or collect it after transport.
After you locate a potential shipping company, you should find out about the types of bikes they move. Some bike haulers do not offer transport for classic or exotic bikes since they don’t own enclosed trucks. Obviously, if you don’t own a luxury bike, then the shipper’s lack of enclosed shipping will not likely affect you.
Last but not the least, ensure that you are aware of the exact delivery service that your shipping company offers. Some haulers provide the door-to-door delivery where they come for the bike at your old home and ship it straight to your new house. Then again, other haulers will simply request you to find ways to drop the bike off or pick it up from a terminus. This can be hard after shipping, particularly if are not familiar with the new place.
