Safe And Reliable Saraland Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
The motorcycle moving industry is full of all sorts of companies who will do all kinds of things to lure you into believing what they say they offer, and after you hire them, you realize that they are just another mediocre mover. That is why you need to do enough research and compare as many motorcycle-shipping companies as possible until you find the most competitive fit. A-1 Auto transport has, for close to thirty years, proven to be the most reliable motorcycle mover who will deliver your motorcycles flawlessly and at affordable fees.
Different methods we will use to ship your motorcycle.
- Open carrier services: This is regarded as the mother of motorcycle moving. Open trucks and trailers are fitted with straps to ensure that the bikes are firmly held while in transit. It is the cheapest of all the services.
- Enclosed carrier services: This innovation came after realizing that motorcycles would be damaged especially by severe weather where long distances were involved. Airtight containers and trucks are used to protect the bikes from the effects of adverse weather.
- Crated services: Wooden like boxes are constructed with enough space around the perimeter to ensure that the bike is free from friction while on the move. Those moving single bikes or delicate ones prefer this method.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Inspect the bikes before you hand them over to the mover. Keep a good record of its condition and if possible take explicit photos so that you have sufficient evidence when you have to file a claim with the mover.
Find out from the mover if they would want to have the keys. The prudent practice is that keys should be with the owner when the bike is in transit.
Clean the motorcycle and ensure that all dust particles, water or oily patches are wiped off.
Fasten the loose nuts, bolts or loose parts, and those that could fall off should be removed and packed separately.
Ensure the tires are correctly inflated. They form part of the suspension and therefore critical in cushioning the motorcycle while in transit.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
The motorcycle mover should be registered with the relevant authorities in Saraland, other cities in the US and internationally. A company without the highway’s authority license cannot be allowed to move, and so you should check their compliance.
You must go for a moving company that has been in the business for an impressive number of years. This will give you confidence that they can handle any move in its uniqueness.
The shipping company should have the right equipment for hauling and transporting so that you will be sure your items are handled with care.
Find out the team that is supposed to handle your move and ensure that they are all professionals. Do not settle for less when it comes to the moving staff; you could be messed up by an inexperienced crew.
