Safe And Reliable Truckee Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Motorbike moving services come in handy due to some conditions. These unavoidable situations include:
- Defects in the motorbike like faulty engines must be fixed. If the mechanic is miles away, shipping will be a sure way to help take the bike for repair.
- Bad weather conditions like hail storms render the highways impassable. That said, a stronger moving body such as trucks can withstand such weather.
- Risk of tear and wear if the motorbike is not designed to withstand long distances. Use a motorcycle shipper to avoid increased mileages too.
- Bad road conditions and terrain damage motorcycles at a higher rate.
- Using other means as primary means of transportation when relocating or travelling but you still want to move your motorcycle.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
Our list of hauling methods is diversified to cater to equally diverse clients’ preferences. Below is the listing:
- Transporting by aircrafts. Air freight charges are normally higher than all other methods of shipping. The positive aspect is that the motorcycles are shipped faster.
- Transporting by covered trailers. With this alternative, you are guaranteed to have the bikes shipped safely.
- Transporting by uncovered trucks. Even if the motorcycles are usually exposed to various damaging elements, we have never had cases of damage before.
- Transporting by trains. Trains are also effective shipping options if the clients dwell near the stations.
- Transporting by sea cargo ships. Overseas travel requires bodies to move across the waters. In our case we have ships that can carry tens of thousands of motorcycles at a go.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
We would love to ship motorcycles that are prepared. That is because we want all bikes delivered without any issue of damage or fee surcharges due to mistakes. Help us maintain our public image.
- Wash off any dust, grease, or even debris on the motorcycles. Remember to dry the bikes so as not to cause other water defects.
- Detach the battery and the alarm system. Pack them distinctly to ensure that they are not damaged while being moved.
- Make sure the gas level is lowered. Many moving companies want to avoid fumes from building up in the trucks. Reduced fuel lessens the overall weight of the bike, which in return reduces the costs.
- Private possessions should be removed from the motorcycle before handing it over to the hauler. The insurance firms do not compensate for such.
- Fluids should be drained from the motorcycle. Some of the fluids are extremely inflammable.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
Here are important characteristics one cannot afford to ignore when looking for a genuine motorcycle shipping service in Truckee.
- The moving company should be able to provide comprehensive coverage of the bikes while in transit. In case of damage or loss, then you are cushioned.
- The reviews and testimonials on the shippers’ websites should be outstanding. Several negative reviews show that the motorcycle shipper does not offer genuine services.
- The movers should prove that they can handle your move given their years of experience. You cannot compare someone who has been in business for over a decade with another who has practiced for barely a year.
- Get a mover who is affordable. You probably do not have all the money to spend on a single move, and that is why you should be careful to choose someone who will work with your budget.
