Safe And Reliable Safety Harbor Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
The demand for motorcycle hauling services in Safety Harbor is high. Every request we receive is unique. Below we have listed some of the most common requests A-1 Auto Transport Inc. receives from customers.
- Transporting scramblers that have defects to get repaired by mechanics who are situated in far locations.
- Shipping motorcycles from sellers situated in overseas countries.

Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Shipping via train. An inland method to move your motorbike if your home is not far from the train terminus. The option is more affordable than road transport
- Shipping via air. An international shipping service to use if the need for shipping is urgent. Persons who are fond of the method are military personnel, racers, and sellers of exotic motorbikes.
- Shipping via water. Water vessels have more room than cargo planes. So, if you want to transport many bikes, consider using the water shipping option.
- Shipping on road. Typically, transporting motorcycles via road relies on sturdy trucks and heavy-duty vans. Another benefit is that motorcycles can get delivered to your doorstep.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
We came to reform the bike transportation industry. Gone are the days when bikers could belt their rides at the back of a pickup truck without proper procedures. Bike owners are not required to disassemble their motorcycles for shipping. However, there exist important tasks that should be completed before transporting the motorcycle.
- Prepare and arrange all documents needed to transport your motorcycle. These can be the licenses and manuals.
- Update your personal indemnity coverage. This will act as the gap insurance if the motor carrier coverage cannot compensate for certain risks.
- Wash and dry the motorbike some days before the shipping date.
- Check for dents, blemishes, and marks. Ensure you leave none out of the records.
- Use a camera with high resolution to photograph the motorcycle from all angles.
- Perform the maintenance checks to ensure the bike works perfectly.
- Do not leave any personal property in the storage compartments of the motorcycle.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Before entrusting any shipper in Safety Harbor with your machine, make sure they have the following characteristics.
- Check the methods of transport and confirm that the option you want is available. Is the enclosed option available? Do they have an open shipping option? There should be several methods to pick from. For instance, air, rail, road, and water methods.
- Is the shipper a specialized motorcycle shipper? Ensure the company deals exclusively with motorcycles. Do not allow your bike to get shipped together with other household items.
- Check the methods used to pack motorcycles. Are they crated or strapped on a motorcycle skid? What measures do they take to ensure the motorbike is delivered in intact condition? Do they ask you to detach some motorcycle accessories? If possible, use a hauler that can ship the motorcycle as is.
- Make sure the bike shipment is insured with a premium insurance policy. This covers you for damage of your motorcycle.
- Ask if the shipper will deliver cargo to your precise location or you should collect it at a terminus.
