Safe And Reliable Texas Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Texas, a.k.a. “The Lone Star State,” is the second largest state in America. Therefore, it has plenty of roadways for motorcyclists to travel. Not to mention, Texas has a ton of different things to do and see. Motorcyclists can be seen everywhere throughout the great state and there are many bike nights and other activities for motorcyclists.
Whether you are moving to Texas, or are going there to stay a while, have your motorcycle shipped. You would be disappointed if you didn't. Motorcycle shipment is safe and reliable when you choose the right company. Just pay attention to the company's ratings and reviews. Make sure that the customer service is friendly and willing to help. Also, ask if they offer insurance during shipment.
Requirements to be Fulfilled Prior to Shipment
There are specific requirements that will need to be fulfilled prior to the motorcycle being transported to Texas. These are standard for every type of shipment except crated shipping. Crated shipping has different requirements because of how the bike is shipped. The motorcycle will need to be drained of all fluids and the battery will need to be disconnected.
- Clean it. Make sure there is no dirt or debris.
- Remove any loose or unnecessary items from the bike.
- Check the gas tank and make sure that it isn't above a ¼ of a tank.
- Take photos and inspect the bike for damage before shipment occurs. Keep documentation and proof for yourself just in case.
- Check the battery, tire pressure, and fluids.
- If the motorcycle has an alarm, please make sure that it is disconnected.
Methods of Shipment Available in Texas
- Enclosed Shipping
- Crated Shipping
- Open Air Shipping
- Terminal to Terminal
- Door to Door
The above methods of shipment are all quite different. Crated shipping and enclosed shipping are the safest. Open air shipping means that the bike is left in the open to face the possibility of poor weather and road conditions. As for door to door shipping, this makes shipment easier when you allow the company to come pick the bike up directly from you and to drop it off wherever you specify.
