Safe And Reliable Ukiah Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Whenever you are making a big move, it is best to hire services from a qualified and reliable mover. This also applies when you are transporting your bike. If any of the following situations arise, hiring motorcycle shipping services is the best option:
- A bike is to be transported to the buyer after they have purchased it.
- A bike cannot be used for a long-distance journey as it would lead to the wear and tear of its parts.
- A bike is faulty and it is to be taken to the mechanic for repair.
- A bike is being salvaged.
The motorcycle shipping options we have
We provide you with the following motorcycle shipping options:
- Shipping via water, which is the best option when transporting many bikes overseas.
- Shipping via rail, which is highly reliable, efficient, and timely because the bike will be delivered in good time with no delays.
- Shipping via air, which is a reliable option when transporting bikes in instances where time is of the essence.
- Shipping via road, which is a common option and convenient for in-land shipping since most destinations have a good road network.
The delivery of your motorcycle is completed by either having it shipped to a terminal that is convenient for you to pick it or by having it delivered to your doorstep.
Motorbike preparation activities as you get ready for shipping
Preparing your bike for shipping requires you to do the following activities:
- Clean the bike so as to remove all the dirt and debris.
- Check the engine.
- Disable the alarm.
- Check the level of the fluids.
- Secure the extremely fragile parts of the bike.
- Check that the level of the gas is at a quarter of the total capacity of the tank at most.
- Remove your personal belongings and the motorcycle accessories.
- Inspect your bike and take photos of it.
Note: The preparation activities will depend on the requirements by the moving company as well as how you intend to ship your bike. For instance, when shipping your bike in a wooden crate some extra preparation will be required, which includes draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery.
