Safe And Reliable Stockbridge Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
The handling of motorcycles must be done with caution during shipping or else they get damaged. Professional handling is what bike owners desire when they hire a Stockbridge shipping company. Some of the circumstances that make bike owners seek services from shippers are:
- When bike owners are sick to an extent that they cannot operate a motorbike.
- Shipping bikes past a region where bike riding is outlawed.
- Shipping motorcycles from sellers to buyers as one of the aftersales services.
- Transporting motorbikes that have faulty engines to bike-repair experts.
- Transportation of motorcycles in severe weather.
- When roads are in a bad state and riding a bike on them leads to tear and wear.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We offer an array of shipping methods because there is a no one-size-fits-all shipping option. However, you can choose one that best suits your needs from the list below.
- Transport of bikes via air. Ship bikes in a cargo plane when the recipient needs them
- Transporting motorcycles via rail. Shipping motorcycles in enclosed trains or open trains ensures that the delivery is not delayed. This is because rail shipping is uninterrupted by heavy traffic, unlike road shipping.
- Transportation of motorbikes via road. Road transport is the most preferred shipping method in Stockbridge. With this shipping method, recipients can receive the bikes right at their door-steps.
- Transporting bikes via water. Our water vessels are the ideal choice when you want to move your motorbikes across the sea. You will pay less shipping fees than when using air shipping.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Below are handy pointers for what should be done when you are getting your ride ready for shipment.
- Removing dirt, stains, and grease. Use soapy water and a cotton cloth to wash the bike. Rinse and dry it afterward with a soft fabric.
- Doing thorough maintenance. The bike should be in a good condition during shipping.
- Removing motorcycle accessories that are delicate or protruding prevents them from getting damaged or broken.
- Draining dangerous fluids from the bike, which includes the inflammable and corrosive ones.
- The level of gas should be lowered to about ¼ of the full capacity.
- Ensuring the tire pressure is appropriate to cushion the motorcycle.
- Examining the entire motorcycle and noting down the dents and discolorations.
- Taking pictures of the motorcycle before and after shipping. The pre-shipping images show the general state of your motorcycle before haulage while the post-shipping images reveal if damages were caused during shipping.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
There are aspects that you need to ensure your shipper has to have peace of mind during your bike shipment. These include:
- Affordability of motorcycle shipping services. The shipper’s fees should be what the current market commands. Any shipper asking for fees way below or exceeding what is acceptable should be avoided.
- A shipper’s experience is a good indicator of their abilities and knowledge. So, a shipper with good knowledge is one who has been in the industry for many years and hiring them will be a noble decision.
- What other clients talk about a shipper is a direct presentation of the type of customer service that they offer. Customer reviews can be found on the testimonials page of the shipper’s website. Read through these and select a shipper with impressive testimonials.
