Safe And Reliable Turlock Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Do you want to enjoy the experience as your motorcycle is moved within the city or anywhere in the US and abroad? Then we are the best choice of a motorcycle moving company that you can make. We have been in the motorcycle shipping business for the twenty-fifth year now and still delivering the best experiences to our clients. We do not gamble when it comes to service delivery. We know how to keep promises, we always do. Once you hire our services, you can only expect the best, if not better.
Different methods we will use to ship your motorcycle.
The following are some of the methods we use to ship your motorcycle:
- Road transport: We use open trucks, motorcycle trailers and flat beds to transport your bike.
- Rail transport: This is a cheap method. It is however the slowest so you can use it if you are not time-constrained.
- Enclosed shipping: This is where we use enclosed trucks and other specialized equipment to transport the bikes. It is more expensive than the open air shipping method as it protects bikes from harsh weather and other harmful external elements. For this reason, it is most suitable where long distances are involved.
- Crated shipping: This is a very safe method most preferred for delicate bikes whereby the items are packed in a wooden crate aligned with special protective material on the inside. It however requires much preparation before packing the bikes.
- Air shipping: This is the fastest method but is expensive.
We do our best to ensure that all the motorcycle shipping methods provided are efficient and affordable for the client.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Preparation of your motorcycle for shipment is required so as to keep it safe from harm while in transit and also to avoid any injuries caused to the team that will handle it while it is being shipped. It helps in accelerating the shipping process or preventing delays as well as preventing penalties. The following are the activities that will be undertaken in the preparation of your motorcycle for shipping:
- Get the travel documents ready before you invite the mover; the title of ownership of the motorcycle should be included here.
- Wash your motorcycle so as to remove all dirt and debris.
- Remove the motorcycle accessories or loose parts.
- Disable the alarm system.
- Check the tire pressure and the fluid levels. Inflate the tires where necessary.
- Check the engine.
- Ensure that the gas level in the fuel tank does not exceed ¼ of the tank capacity.
- Get some professionals to do maintenance on your bike.
- Inspect your bike for any damages/marks. Take notes on the same and high resolution photos showing the bike’s pre-shipment condition.
In case you will be shipping using the crated shipping option, you will have to disconnect the battery and drain the fluids. Also, some shippers may request that you remove protruding parts such as the handlebars.
