Safe And Reliable Vacaville Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
If you have ever moved a bike, you will agree with us that moving is one of the most challenging things to do. This is because it is very difficult to find a moving company that will care for your bike as much as you would like them to.
In Vacaville, A-1 Auto Transport is one of the few renowned motorcycle shipping companies that you can trust with your bike. We offer everything from local moves in California to long distance international motorcycle transportation services.
Different methods we will use to ship your motorcycle.
- Water transport: slow and cheap method of shipping.
- Air transport: fast and a bit costly.
- Enclosed transport: 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
- Open air transport: Cheap method of transport but your motorcycle will be exposed to various elements.
- Crated shipping: Safe method of shipping.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
A lot of preparation is required when making any type of move. You will be expected to get your motorcycle ready for shipping. Some of the activities involved in this preparation are:
- Wash your motorcycle and remove all the dirt.
- Do a thorough inspection of your motorcycle and ensure that you take note of any marks or dents. Take a photo of your bike too.
- Disable the alarm system.
- Check the tire pressure and the engine.
- Check the battery.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
The motorcycle mover should be registered with the American Association of Movers and have the necessary licenses to do business in other countries of interest.
The mover must have been in this business for a good number of years, which will guarantee safe handling and delivery. Avoid dealing with motorcycle shipping newbies; they could frustrate you.
The equipment that the mover uses should be modern. This will ensure efficiency in handling your move.
The staff handling your move should be highly skilled and professional in their service delivery.
