Summit, IL Motorcycle Shipping Company

The truth vis-à-vis motorbikes is that they are built for the joy of the ride. However, there are circumstances where it becomes practical to have them transported to or from Summit by a reliable motorbike transport service, instead of having the bike owners taking risks by riding the bikes several miles from one geographical region to another.

Riding can be electrifying and oozes terrific freedom. However, distant trips can get very tiresome on the riders’ backs, even on the most deluxe choppers. So, if you want, for instance, to attend a biking event thousands of kilometers away, you will need to hire the services of an excellent shipping company.

Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle

  • Train transport. Transporting your motorcycle via train is a great option since it is cheaper than other shipping methods. However, you are responsible of dropping off the bike for shipping and collecting it after delivery at a train terminus.
  • Road transport. With this shipping method, we will load your motorbike on an open or enclosed trailer and move it to the stipulated address. This is often the greatest method because we work with your plan and door-to-door delivery is offered.
  • Water transport. A primary international shipping service that is affordable and offers optimum security while the shipment is on the move. We can ship any number of motorcycles in your parking lot.
  • Air transport. Regarded as a high-cost shipping option, air shipping is suitable when the need to ship a motorcycle is urgent.

How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping

In this section of the write-up, we will explain about preparing your motorcycle for shipping. The chances of a well-prepared bike to get damaged are very unlikely. Read the tips below.

  • Clean your bike. The customs are impressed by clean motorbikes. Also, marked up areas are easily noticed on a clean motorbike.
  • Complete a thorough inspection. Do this when you are not in a hurry. Missing out on some parts might cause trouble with the customs or law enforcers.
  • Leave just a quarter tank of fuel. Less fuel means the bike weighs less than when with a full tank and the shipping fees are reduced as well.
  • Secure the shaky parts. You can either tighten them or if they are fragile remove them. The ones that are removed should be packed in secure containers and labeled accordingly.
  • Check the tire pressure. Damage is reduced to over 70% in motorcycles with adequate pressure in the tires. Tires are great cushions for the bike; they absorb all the shock emanating from the truck movements.
  • Remove personal items. You should be aware that valuables are not covered by our insurance policy.
  • Write down specific instructions. If the motorcycles have unique operating features, be sure you let the shipper know.

What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company

  • Look for a motorcycle shipping company that owns its fleet of shipping vehicles. They should not be brokers or sub-contractors working with other shipping companies.
  • Be sure you confirm that the shipping company offers shipping services for all types of motorcycles. This means that they should be well equipped with handling equipment and machinery.
  • The shipper you consider working with should be able to ship motorbikes statewide, nationwide, and overseas. This might be via air, road, rail or water bodies.
  • Only ship with shippers who include insurance coverage in their shipping services. The policies should offer compensation privileges for all kinds of perils.

Why you should use A-1 Auto Transport for your motorcycle shipping needs

  • Our shipping rates are competitive and you can afford to hire our shipping services for your motorcycle shipping needs. We have a hardworking crew that monitors and alerts us about the trends in the current motorcycle hauling market; hence, our ability to quote reasonable shipping fees.

However, we work hard to offer you first-rate shipping services. At times things do not go as planned but we always alert our clients.
  • Consider our express delivery services. A-1 Auto Transport uses trucks that deliver straight through.

With us, after loading your bike it is en-route directly to the stipulated destination.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
